The only question is which one. Hunter HH or Hollywood HH. Make your pick now.



There is no way that this we will see another face/mutual respect love fest. Hogan can not job again and just be the “old guy we respect but gets pinned clean in title matches to put over the young guys”. He isn’t Flair. Even if he did what would his role then be? He would be as credible as the little old ass fake Hogan they had during the Billionaire Ted skits.


Face Hunter gains nothing unless he gets an NWO beat down. Face Hogan needs a heel Hunter to turn back to the clique.


I only see 2 choices. We all know from Austin that Vince is all about the NWO. With Nash even more useless they will need a major storyline.


I know human nature is to argue all kinds of option #3s but for once go ahead and buck tradition and make an actual prediction. I say Hogan wins with NWO interference and continues to make my life miserable. I hope I’m wrong.

Of course Hogan in the nWo would make NO sense with the split. They're on completely different shows. Unless you'd like to suggest a nWo RAW and nWo Smackdown! which I would hate.

If somebody HAS to turn, I'd rather it be HHH. And if somebody HAS to go nWo, then it should logically be HHH, as he can show up with the nWo any time he wants on RAW as long as he holds the belt (and possibly after depending on what happens when he drops the strap).

Oh alright, I'll say Hunter goes heel at Backlash. He's been trying to be Flair for years, and by getting his running buddies to protect his title he gets to have his own Horsemen. That and the face run is sucking the life out of crowds from coast to coast.

Yes, but Nash is "suspended" from RAW and could go to Smackdown. Also, if they help Hogan win the belt Hunter is stuck on Smackdown while Hogan can do both shows (thus making me TWICE as miserable).

I still maintain that we don't need yet another HHH heel run. Been there, done that. What else is there possibly left for HHH to do as a heel?

Besides, with the lack of top faces in the WWF (SD in particular) - turning HHH now would not be too bright a move.

Now Rock turning heel....

I don't see Rock as a heel simply due to his part timer status. Seems he's disappearing again for a few months now. To be a top heel you kind of have to be around making people miserable all the time.

As for what a heel HHH could do...squash everybody in sight, same thing he does as a face basically.

*Sigh* It really was a simple choice I thought. Now somehow the Rock is involved.

If anyone's turning, it'll be Triple H. Having Hogan rejoin the nWo will completely destroy his credibility. Besides, a lot of people have apparently bought Hulk Still Rules T-shirts, so Hulkamania appears to be running wild.

My prediction. Triple H will retain when the nWo interferes and manhandles Hogan. Triple H joins the nWo and actually becomes their leader.

But Hunter joining the nWo has one storyline flaw. Sure, Hunter will have his nWo teammates on RAW, but on the SmackDown after Backlash, he'd have no one to help him out against Hogan. And you know Hogan would kick Triple H's ass in sheer rage if such a swerve were to go down.

So either the nWo could be on both shows, or there could be a different nWo for each show, with Triple H recruiting a couple guys from the SmackDown roster. We'll see what pans out.

MUST HHH join the nWo or any other faction? In all honesty I don't really see the use of of it at this point. The days of him needing DX as his backup are long gone, and I don't see the point of yoking him to the yoke that is the nWo.

Make him a heel, yeah, but take him back to basics--make him the paranoid, singleminded heel he was before, I say.

Might be a good idea for him to hook up with SOMEONE. Triple H alone just isn't cutting the mustard right now. In fact, even when he was the psycho thug with a sledgehammer and a long shitlist, I didn't like him that much. Sure, like any red-blooded American, I appreciated the sheer force of his violent outbursts, but he just didn't have "it". "It" being that indefinable something that reaches out, grabs you by the balls and FORCES you to give a shit.

Funny, he talks about Jericho not having "it" yet, but without being booked as an unstoppable madman, he doesn't either.

I hope he does turn back to his old sledgehammer heel status, and at the same time the WWF adopts a similar blading policy to CZW. THAT could get interesting!

HHH is too stale...do something! Lose twenty pounds and start to actually wrestle! Find an angle! Any angle! Because these cliched "Mutual respect" things don't work...look at Rock/Jericho...it exploded. Benoit/Jericho at least had "I hate this guy" tension...

Bottom Line: Angles make matches mean something. Hogan/HHH doesn't mean anything to me with nothing but "respect" on the line.

Well, the "lone pissed off guy with the sledgehammer" angle worked for ME, what can I say?

As for him cutting the mustard, look at it this way. . .he just got out of the worst kinda feud. . .the kind that makes *everyone involved* look terrible. I'm not apologising for it, but really, Steffie Megatits Last Stand REALLY sucked all the life from Jericho and HHH. And most everyone who watched it over the age of 14.

I just don't see how hooking HHH up to the nWo will reverse it's slow death or the damage done to his face run. Then again, given what happened on Smackdown, the nWo theory is good and moot now.
