I was going over some old tapes and came across the Hogan mega crowd ovations from a couple years ago. The crowd was insane cheering for Hogan for at least 10 minutes straight on that Smackdown show. It was the most exciting, bizzare moment I had seen at that time. It got me to wonder if anyone ever in the history of WWE ever gotten that type of response? I know Austin and Rock have gotten great ovations, but compared to the ones Hogan had in 2002-03 it's not even in the same ballpark.

The closest I can think of would be from WCW when Flair returned. I'm talking about when Bischoff had him off tv for months and the crowd would chant "We Want Flair" off and on during the live airings until Eric finally gave in and brought him back.

ps. There's something spooky about being in the building during one of those Hogan ovations too...

The only ones I can think of were the returns of Mick Foley. It doesn't touch Hogan's day long ovations. Raven coming back to help Tommy Dreamer win the ECW tag belts in the Dudley's last ECW match was pretty big too.

This is not the same, but the biggest and longest boos I've ever heard involved Mick. The HHH vs. Cactus Jack No Way Out HiaC match. The one were Foley would have to retire, and he feel from the cage into the ring. That crowd was genuinely pissed!

What about Austin's Summerslam '98 response from the MSG crowd?

The Guerrero/Malenko sendoff in ECW was a good one.

Benoit got a huge ovation following his match with Angle at the Royal Rumble two nights before, I think its the first time a WWE crowd gave him any sign of repsect.

But I really can't of any in WWE/F that was that long, Thank god he had to wrestle.

When Austin came back in 2003 against Bishoff was huge.

I think the loudest ovation ever will be when Bret Hart comes out one last time.

The loudest ovation ever would only involve Bret Hart if it happened in Canada. Had he come out during Backlash or the next night's RAW, the crowd could very well still be cheering today.

I know there's no official record keeping, but I guess the Hogan mega crowd worship from the 2002-03 period are the largest, LONGEST ovations in the history of pro wrestling. Remember he said something to the effect of "let this be the greatest run of them all" whenhe came back the last time. Its a damn shame his WWE run had to end with him being pinned by Big Show in MSG wearing a blue mask.

Standing ovations:

- Edge/Christian/Hardys (Raw-The day after the first ever tag team ladder match @ no mercy 99)

- Chris Benoit received those standing ovations more then once and the response he got @ Backlash wasnīt too silent as well!


Another extremely loud pop:

- Bret Hart (@ IYH-Canadian Stampede)

I remember that Triple H got a pretty big-ass pop when he returned from his quad injury on January 2002.

Just been reading about Ric Flair in another thread and just set me thinking - How massive will a standing ovation be when he retires?

What's remarkable is that the standing ovation got its own chapter and title on the Royal Rumble 2003 DVD.

But that wasn't Hogan, it was his "good friend, Mr. America"

Hogan's ovations were deserved. To most fans, he was what put wrestling on the map. He was always a face, as most of Vince's fans never gave a damn about WCW. He was an idol, we simply wouldn't let him be a heel with Nash and the NWO - and even the Rock's attempts to help get him over as a heel were not bought by the fans.

I would love to see Hulkamania run wild again, but not for too long...1-2 months it can run its course.

When Eddy came to Fresno after he won the World Title his standing ovation went at least Five Minutes.

I think Eddie got a bigger reaction when he appeared in El Paso with the US title. He entered through the crowd and the place just erupted.

He deserved worse. I've hated Hulk Hogan since I first saw him, and I'll hate him until the day I die. He's one of the least talented wrestlers ever to step in the ring, and his popularity is inexplicable to me. I hope he never shows up on WWE tv ever again.

Do yourself a favor and rent some Hogan from Japan, he could work back in the day.
