When Brock and Hogan had their bump into each other backstage moment on SD, did anyone else suddenly have a quick flashback to the end of Mania IX? I just can't get it out of my mind that everytime Hogan has returned in the past decade plus he gets at least one run with the world title. If Steiner can have world title matches back to back months, could Vince decide to give Hogan another nostalgia title reign this spring?

I thought exactly the same thing.

vince has turned me into such a cynic, I automatically thought, "So this is the tradeoff for Hogan doing the job to Brock -- he's going to get one last nostalgia tour with the belt."

A sure sign these are the last days of a decadent society.

I really don't think so. I get the feeling that Hogan was only brought back so that he could go out on top. If he got into the title picture, he'd have to go out after LOSING. As it is, he can kick Vince's ass at Wrestlemania (and probably get his win back from Rock at No Way Out) and leave on top. I'm not saying we'll never hear from him again, but I think his last run made him realize that he doesn't have what it takes to be a consistant performer anymore.

I can see him making some sort of an appearance at WMXX, but I really don't expect to see much of him for the year in between, and I don't see any reason to give him a title run of any sort with the company in the state it is now.

Think about it - as slow and awkward as Hogan was in the ring at Mania 18, he's another year older now. And I doubt he's been taking workrate pills.

I don't know. For all the bad you hear about Hogan, if he's got half a brain he'd want to be in great condition to make his FINAL match really great.

I don't know how concerned Hogan is about making his final match really great or even if it's so much about getting another payday. Sometimes I think with him, it's almost like he's trying to convince himself that he's still got "it", i.e. being able to get the pop & keep himself in the picture (title or no) to keep his marketability.

His perception may very well be that he's still a money draw and that the pop proves it. The money is nice, but with him, I get the feeling it's more about ego.

That said, he still did a terrific job of putting Brock over in that match, and I give him a ton of credit for making Brock look like a total monster there. That proves that at least on occasion, he does go against conventional IWC wisdom and does what's right for business.

I think that at this stage, Hogan is honestly kind of warring with himself.. because he really is of the generation where you did put over the new guys and ride off into the sunset.. but at the same time, he was the start of the generation of 'super stars' and I think that he's somehow trying to put people over while keeping himself at the top.. I'm not sure how long that it'll last, but at the moment, I'm enjoying Hogan.. I don't know if its nostalgia, but I can get completely into his matches no matter how bad.. I'm a kid all over again..

He hasn't been in the ring yet on this run, so it may be too early to make this statement, but Hulk looks like he's in the best shape he's been in since his classic WWF run. I swear, the Hulkster looks ten years younger than he did at Wrestlemania last year. It can't all be losing the NWO beard, can it?

And, in general, I know Hulk's a lousy worker, and I know Hulk plays political games backstage but, you know what, I didn't know that when I was seven years old, and that's exactly how old I am every time Hogan comes down that aisle, brother.

Hulk Hogan never had descent ring skills.

However, he's been in so many big matches because he has made them big because he can turn it on.

What is it? I don't know. Hogan has it, Rock has it, Austin has it, Angle to a certain extent.

I stopped caring for Hogan after he beat Sgt. Slaughter. Maybe it was because I was growing up and about to take my several year sabbatical from wrestling (so I missed a lot of good stuff and a lot of HORRIBLE stuff, from Bret Hart (good) to the Goon (HORRIBLE)). When I came back, there he was in WCW doing whatever it took to ruin angles and keep himself in the main event.

He's the ultimate kayfabe guy... I think he's convinced himself of his larger-than-life status, when in actuality the business has passed him by. Don't get me wrong... I marked out for him years ago, too, but that was a long time ago.

Sad news, indeed. I think I'll comb through the old DVD/Tape collection tonight to find some memorable moments in tribute. RIP.
