>singlehandedly killed the wrestling boom

>beats up his wife

Why do people like this guy again?
>>
>>2103975
Cuz he's a redneck just like me
>>
Considering that the Attitude Era, which was the boom, was based around him, he also started that boom.

We'll call it 50/50 on that one.

He started the boom so he has every right to kill it.
Which he didn't do, btw.

People here seem to think Hogan was what pushed Austin into the midcard in 2002.

>>2103986
You talking about their proposed match that never happened?

Basically
>Steve didn't want to job to Hogan
>Hogan didn't want to job to Steve

The fans killed it. Fucking faggot fans.
>>
>>2104002
Why didn't Hogan want to job to Steve but jobbed to Dwayne?
>>
>>2104002
>Hogan didn't want to job to Steve
That's not true. Hogan jobbed to Rock so why wouldn't he job for Austin? It was Austin that refused the match
>>
>>2104018

>austin refused the match

Austin didn't want the shine taken off him from being in the ring with the biggest star of all time in hogan
>>
>>2103986
Hulk Hogan turned Steve Austin into a midcarder because Steve was afraid of getting booed against Hogan in a match at wrestlemania and refused to wrestle Hogan
>>
>>2104018
>Hogan jobbed to Rock
And it was one of the only clean jobs he did during his entire WWE return.

Who knows what convinced him?
>>
>>2103975
Because it's fun to do impressions of him.

Because it was Toronto and Austin was smart enough to know they would never boo Hogan in Canada.

Hence why Rock was booed during the match

this

>>2103995
It's unironically true though. Go look at Austin's position on the card in the month or two before the nWo debuts then after until he walked out. He was going to job to Lesnar then be in a midcard feud with Eddie Guerrero right before he left, and before that he was in the midcard of all the PPVs

As soon as Hogan left them he got 5-10 minute standing ovations every week while Austin was fucking around with Big Show in the midcard

Debate any of this, Austincucks.

>>2105081

Hogan is the GOAT but that's wrong, he put over Edge big time before he left in 2002 by teaming with him to win the tag titles

Austin debuted right at the very end of December 1995 and was solidly upper-midcard to main event within a year.

Sorry your unfunny meme got debunked by reality.

>h-he didn't spend 4 years in the midcard, only 3.3 years!!!
Okay Steve.

Always found it funny that people called Stone Cold a mid carder in 2002.

Considering how pissed off Vince was that he walked out (they even brought the Rock out to bury Steve) a lot of drama for a mid carder leaving

Unironically this

>>2105247
>Based Austin cucked Hogan out of the biggest match of all time

Rock vs Hogan still happened though

>after cucking him out of his spot as the number one draw

Other way around as Austin was turned into a midcarder with a meme chant like he was Fandango or something as Hogan came into the company
>>
>>2105247
Austin cucked himself by turning heel thinking he was Hogan and could start a second boom, instead he killed his drawing power immediately as the next PPV lost 300k buys and he was dead in the water a year later

If he succeeded as a heel, it wouldn't even be a debate between him and Hogan. But he fell on his face, so he's the #2
>>
>>2105255
>as the next PPV lost 300k buys
TBF Undercarder was the main event
>>
>>2105255
Based Austin literally too GOAT to boo.

>lost 300K buys

A main event with Kane, HHH and The Undercarder couldn't draw? Shocker.
>>
>>2105268
yes but as a face Austin dragged him to the record high Summerslam buyrate. His heel turn however killed wrestling in the mainstream and it still hasn't recovered, what was he thinking

>>2105270
He dragged all three of those no-draws previously to a good buyrate previously, he got too greedy turning heel and it failed
>>
>>2105273
>got too greedy turning heel

If he was greedy he wouldn't have turned and instead stayed top babyface.
>>
>>2105255
Hogan had Piper, Savage, Sting at his hottest, Goldberg, DDP, and Flair to play off of.

Austin had Bikertaker, Benoit/Jericho after Bikertaker flopped, and Angle. He had great matches against Angle and Benoit, but Hogan had more to work with.
>>
>>2105288
Ratings were falling already at that time though, Austin felt something needed to change and Vince didn't have anything big planned

>"Worst call I've ever made other than refusing to job to Brock Lesnar at Atlanta. But, you know, that was my idea. Vince always likes to do something big at Wrestlemania. He didn't have anything big planned. So, me being The Rocket scientist that I am, I figured okay. You're a hot babyface, and if you turn heel, you're a hot ass heel to draw money like that.

>>2105289
Exactly, which makes the turn even more stupid
>>
>>2105295
>ratings were falling
>during WrestleMania season
>after their competition went under

Doubt...
>>
>>2105295
Honestly I think if Rock stayed around it would have worked, I guess the intention of Haitch/Austin beating the fuck out of Rock was to get huge heat on them but there was no babyface left to take that spot yet.
>>
>>2105253
>>2105255
jajaja hogankeks BTFO
>>
>>2105306
This

When your top babyface is a career midcarder like the Undercarder, a top heel is always going to flop.

They spent the majority of 00 in the high 5's-low 7's and by early 2001 they were in the low 4's-high 5's

The people who were still watching WCW at that time hated WWF/Vince, they weren't just going to start watching because WCW was gone

Who was Hogan's babyface? The fucking Giant? Stink didn't turn up until a while after Hogan's turn.

Hogan revolutionised the business, Steve killed it.
