One name that hasn’t been back in WWE in over a year is Hulk Hogan. Hulk Hogan has been a part of many dream matches in his long career and the Hulkster has faced many modern legends including The Rock, Triple H, The Undertaker, and Kurt Angle.
However, there is one name he has missed out on working with despite his return to WWE in 2002, and that is the Texas Rattle Snake, Stone Cold Steve Austin.
During his recent appearance on the After The Bell podcast, Hogan revealed that he wanted to have a match with the former world champion at WrestleMania after his feud with The Rock but it could not take place:
“My whole goal was to have that run with The Rock and then focus on Stone Cold. Because, as a heel, I could’ve put him over everywhere. If they could’ve put the belt back on me, he could’ve chased me – and like Stone Cold says, ‘If there’s money to be made, let’s make it, brother.’ That was my goal. It was to get him in that Hulk Hogan zone and make him realize – he’d been beat up pretty bad with his neck and a bunch of stuff – I just wanted him to realize the way you go to the ring, the way you feel, was the same way you’re going to feel after working with me on the way back. It’s going to be nice and easy, but we’re going to tear the house down.”
Why Hulk Hogan vs. Stone Cold never took place
Former WWE commentator Jim Ross had explained on Grilling JR why a match between the two legends could not take place and according to him, Stone Cold felt that his pace of wrestling would not match Hogan’s
“I think Steve’s issue was just that Steve had a very high pace – intense, aggressive, somewhat snug, high pace. That just may not have fit Hogan’s stylings at that time because of his back. But it would have been an interesting attraction.”
Hulk Hogan returned to WWE after almost a decade in 2002. He went on to have a feud with The Great One after his return, which led to a passing of the torch match between the two on WrestleMania 18.
