On top of all I've already said, if you don't own your name - you're not bigger than the business you're in...or the one who owns it... remember how in his early movies the WWE always got a credit but later on when Dwayne became the big star rather than The Rock he didn't...
That's kind of a unique way of looking at it...

considering if Marvel had a trademark on the name "The Rock" because one of their biggest properties was called "The Rock"... then I'm pretty sure that regardless of how big of a star the man who is STILL often billed as Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson became...

there would still be a little disclaimer on everything he did saying that Marvel owned the rights to that name!

Maybe if he was Ant Man Hogan they wouldn't have cared that much, but considering the Hulk has always been kind of a big deal for Marvel, you can't really blame them for wanting to hold on to the rights to that name.

Hulk Hogan was never bigger than the pro wrestling business. Hr was always a wrestler who made movies, tv shows, commercials etc...it was never the other way around. He never achieved that mainstream success that would've allowed him to leave the WWF and the pro wrestling business. Hulk Hogan needed wrestling, wrestling didn't necessarily need Hogan.

The Rock on the other hand became bigger than the business. His identity is independent of WWE. He is no longer looked too as a pro wrestler who does movies, he is a full actor who makes "celebrity" appearances in the WWE.

Thanks to the WWF Hulk Hogan became a huge name. Best thing Hogan did was leave the AWA when he had the chance to grow his brand.
