As far as Hogan being mainstream, I'm not so sure. Not that the mainstream isn't aware of it, but the general feeling I'm getting is that people are looking at it as a joke, as in "Wrestling is soooo fake, they have an old fossil like Hogan as champion." I heard some DJ talk about how Rock must be a great actor, because he was able to have a staredown with Hogan without bursting out in laughter.
Was at the show live and it was a great time. Some observations: - The Miz is on a whole different level from other heels right now. I don't know how it came across on TV but he was constantly getting huge heat.
