If anybody else saw this, back me up.

This is a line from yesterday's WO update, as it reads right now...

--Although it seemed to be said last night, I'm told that Jimmy Snuka will not be in Foley & Rock's corner on Sunday.

When the update was first posted though, it read as follows...

--Although it seemed to be said last night, I'm told that Jimmy Snuka will not be in Hogan & Rock's corner on Sunday.

I know Meltzer is notorious for his typos. But, when I read it yesterday, before it was corrected, I didn't think anything of it because I thought Dave was cracking a joke by drawing a parallel to WM I. Now, I could understand it being a slip-up because, hey, at the time, he might have been thinking about WM I. On the other hand, did Dave let some sort of cat out of the bag? Will Rock&Sock have another partner, or a corner man (as counterproductive as that would be)?

If it does happen, just know that Meltzer let it slip out beforehand.

If at all possible, I struggle to think what a waste the build-up with Foley has been if Hogan is just going to steal the spotlight...

Probably just a typo but I wouldn't be to surprised if they some how worked something with the Hulkster to help Rock & Sock defeat Evolution. It is WRESTLEMAINA you know. :-)

Right, it's not like Hulk Hogan had anything to do with the success of the WWF or WrestleMania that he should have SOME of the spotlight for a supposed event of such magnitude. That spotlight should be put on a real WWE Legend like Shawn Michaels.

Well, I am not going to go off on another Shawn Michaels or Hulk Hogan tangent, it has been done. But the point is, if Hogan is there, good and I don't see a problem and he deserves it. I mean the WWE praises and puts Ric Flair on their shoulders, an NWA superstar, yet don't do the same for their own guy Hogan? But that's beside the point.

Just like it was mentioned before, this is like going back to the beginning. You have The Wrestler (Foley...somewhat) with the Hollywood Star (Rock) against the jerk bad guy (Orton) with his muscle (Batista). With the legend types in the respective corners (Flair and Hogan).

But, that's my take. I personally don't like guys like Meltzer, Keller, and Scherer. I think they hurt wrestling more than help it along.

The argument was not necessarily that Hogan shouldn't be there (that may or may not be the person's opinion, I don't know), but that he shouldn't be there to steal Foley's spotlight after he worked really hard for this angle.

Ok, I see that point. I guess that I can somewhat agree upon.

I tihnk Hogan deserves some kind of mention on the show, and if they can get him for an appearance/run-in/whatever, then good for them. But slotting him into this mathc with no rhyme nor reason wouldn't work on any side of the equation. Fans would be too bust going "huh?" to go wild, and as previously mentioned, it would be unfair on Foley to have come out of retirement in a match featuring the surprise return of the biggest superstar of all-time.

Did Hall ever fight one of the Giants? man. Hall vs. Muto really wasn't as bad as everyone acted like it would be, though.
