You probably meant that as a compliment. To me (and I agree with the statement), it's not. :>

I think the WWF will tread carefully if they do decide to turn the Rock heel anytime soon. Remember last year? Stone Cold was a brilliant heel IMO and the crowd didnt buy it. So if the Rock is turned they will lay the seeds carefully. I would love to see a heel Rock, as I didnt come back to watching WWF until late 99. My first RAW I watched was the "this is your life" episode. Anyway, I thought that match was awesome last night. The crowd firmly behind Hogan like that was something to behold. I was sure that they would cue up "Real American" at the end, Im sure the crowd wouldve blown the roof off of SkyDome. People diss Hogan and Rock for being crappy wrestlers but I dont think anyone in the business couldve controlled that crowd any better than they did. Isnt that wrestling is all about? Crowd Psychology? On another side the NWO is now useless. I mean what good are they without Hogan? Hopefully they kill the NWO angle tonight, because I dont see how they can salvage it now. Theyve been beaten quite convicingly, and no one is going to buy a new member at this point. Unless its Goldberg.

You know, Hogan seems to be a pretty popular "poison."
At the restaurant I was at last night, people seemed to be alternately cheering Hogan and Rock, depending on the moment. Everyone cheered whenever there was a kickout, no matter who it was that was doing it.
Personally, I just wanted to see the title match, so I could go home and go to bed. I was hoping Rock/Hogan would have been last, so I could have left early. :>
