As host, he probably won't be taking much time away from matches and it's Hulk Hogan, so he def adds to the spectacle. Not saying it to be cruel to the performers or anything, who do the business all year round, but Hulk Hogan addressing the crowd for 10 minutes will draw more than a Darren Young match.

That can only be a good thing for every other match on the card. My big doubt is whether someone like Batista is a big enough star to add any interest to the event. Hulk Hogan more than justifies being there though. Might be nobody still performing at Wrestlemania's if it wasn't for his influence in the beginnings.

Have Barrett, Darren Young, Jack Swagger, Dolph Ziggler and all the other guys really done anything of note the past few months that would justify a spot on the card?

Big E, Cody and Cesaro? Yes, they should get a chance to be on the card in some capacity. But those other guys haven't done shit in months if not all year.

Ahem.

Question of the week:

It should be heavily implied that HHH caused the injury to Bryan at the Chamber PPV. HHH states that he has the perfect replacement (cut to Curtis Axel, who is in earshot of these events, looking like an excited puppy). Come time for the Main Event it's HHH that's revealed as the replacement (cut to a dejected Curtis Axel). HHH wins the title.

Subsequently, Batista falls victim to the same fate as Bryan, this time at Mania, leaving HHH with no opponent. He comes out at the end of the show basically to gloat/make NM's head implode. Then the Ultimate Warrior's music hits. He races to the ring. He beats HHH in 1:40 in reference to WM12.

Following that, Hogan comes out and with HHH's backing goes into a match with Warrior as he did against Yokozuna at Mania 9. Hogan defeats Warrior to get back his win from Mania 6 and thus ends the show and the metaplot of WrestleMania.

The planets are aligning.

I know that is how he's perceived by some, but by supporting Hogan, it doesn't mean we want the current roster buried. I hate that term, buried.

I want to see Bryan and Cesaro, the Shield and all the others to succeed, most of them will. They have a bright future, a different era to lead. I'm a little bored of the formula going right now, but I think with a little help from the past for one night, another memorable performance will help solidify why wrestling is great.

Savage had runs with the belt and didn't draw well. Pick up any Wrestling Observer magazine from that era. They are online. That's why the belt went back to Hogan.

it only went back to Hogan once in the WWF when Savage was champ from WM 4 to WM 5. Savage's other reign was when he won then lost to Ric Flair. I am confused about the one day WCW title reigns (once each in 1998 and 1999) where he dropped the belt to Hogan then.

well never mind... forgot after Savage dropped the WCW title to Hogan in 98, Goldberg won it a few months later, and in 99, Hogan turned face and went back to red and yellow after winning from Savage.

the WCW ones irritate me more than the WWF ones owen. using savage as a transition champ just to get back to Hogan makes Savage look like a stooge.

Gertner ,putting it back on Hogan was the right thing at Mania % because anytime you can close out your biggest show with the top babyface winning the title that's the way you go. But maybe Savage didn't draw well because they stuck Hogan with him for the whole year in lame ass tag matches

I don't think tagging with the biggest in the industry at the time and arguably ever was bad for Savage's popularity. If anything, it instantly made him apart of the main event scene without having to main event.

I was born in 1986. Hogan was well before my time, and by the time I was old enough realize what I was watching, it was Bret Hart, HBK, Diesel and Taker who were the main guys during my adolescent rasslin years.

But I completely understand Hogan's importance to the business. He's the fucking man, period. Other than Austin and the Rock, nobody can just walk into an arena and get the reaction Hogan can get. Even now, 30 years after he began his run, he's still a commodity that is almost guaranteed to get a massive reaction and have the crowd in the palm of his hand.

How having him host the 30th edition of the event he helped put on the map is bad thing is beyond me. It's clear that, regardless of his involvement, it's best for business and having him there after being gone for as long as he has is a great thing.

Hogan headlined 8 WMs ,compare the business which they did at the time with the business the WMs which Rock had headlined has done and it is quite obvious that despite adjusting for inflation et al,The WMs which Rock has headlined have done record business,something none in the histoiry of pro-wrestling have been able to achieve.


The Rock hit his peak at around 1999-2001,but here he comes back after 7 years and back to back 3 WMs do record business solely on his back.And not only that all these WMs went on to better their own record,literally unheard thing in wrestling history.
