I can't wait until a few more years have passed and the Cena diehards are old enough to post here intelligently and start blasting Steve Austin as a redneck wife-beater has-been that only got to where he was because Vince pushed him there. It's no more true of Austin than all the anti-Hogan rants are of him. Have you ever noticed the anti-Hogan marks start off saying the same thing? Hogan helped build the industry, and was a the biggest name ever back then, and I respect that, but... he sucks. Hulk Hogan, for that generation (MY generation) IS pro-wrestling. I grew up watching wrestling in the late 80's and early 90's and I was a Randy Savage fan. I didn't care for Hogan, but I admitted he was the top guy and deservedly so, in the 90's when he went Hollywood, I hated his guts, but admitted he was the top guy and deservedly so, then Vince brings him back with the nWo in 2002 and inexplicably, even to me, I marked the f**k out for him. I simply could not believe how good it was to see Hulk Hogan again. Then came the infamous "Hogan Ovations" which became a phenomenon never seen before or since in the world of pro-wrestling. It became a contest of one crowd trying to see if they could out-cheer the crowd from the week before. If you saw these live, and you were a knowledgeable fan of pro-wrestling, it's simply mind blowing. I have a hard time believing that Austin will ever get this reaction. I don't think The Rock will get this, it's still WAY too early to see if Cena will ever get this, but look, Hogan blew the roof off crowds over and over again. It wasn't because he was the best wrestler in the WWE at that point in time, it was a matter of wrestling fans showing respect for the greatest legend pro-wrestling has ever seen. Since that time however, the world has moved on. Now is time of the attitude era fans, not the time of my generation. Austin is the man, I get that, and I respect that, even while I disagree. However I'd be blown away (again) to see another ovation like the Hogan Ovations, this time for Steve Austin. Hogan is the man, and while time keeps going, just like the legend of Andre was more or less lost on my generation, Hogan's legacy will fade some, and soon, so will Austin's, and then it will once again be saying "My time is now". Hogan is a Hall of Famer, and a right respectable choice for the first, just like Andre would have been, just like Austin would have been, and 10-15 years from now just like The Rock will be, and Cena will be.
