Don't get TOO excited. I sense a "I was wooed from the edge of retirement by the love and adoration of the fans piped in by the heat machine" vibe over this whole thing.

And anyways, it won't be as cool as when Shane Douglas teasted retirement in ECW and turned it into a profanity laden tirade (as he was wont to do)

But I'd pay PPV money if I could get a goofy profanity laden drunken rant about nothing from Hogan. For the children, you understand.

Judging by the spoilers, I wouldn't get too excited either. But I would in a few months. ;)

Trust me, I was there. There was no need for a heat machine. Hogan's ovation was hands down the most amazing thing I've ever seen. We cheered for him almost 20 minutes straight.

For some reason, this reminds me of the time that Hulk Hogan was contemplating selling the WWF title to Ted DiBiase, so he comes out looking so sad and staring lovingly at the belt as he quietly tells Mean Gene that maybe he should just give up and take the money ... But then he gets that "Hulking UP" look in his eyes and says that he'll be damned (ooh, edgy back then) if he ever gives up the title belt.

Yeah, for some reason, envisioning Hogan giving a retirement speech makes me think that they would just try and pull the same thing ...

    Great...now we have the old Vince/Austin feud being replayed in both brands: Flair/Austin in WWE RAW and Vince/Hogan in WWE Smackdown! I sincerely doubt that this is the top-drawer writing that will pump up the ratings.

    How bad is the writing if *Kevin Nash* is calling it bad - the ultimate "pot calling the kettle black"?

    I dont see why the WWF(bring the F back!) hasnt gone full blown Hulkamania yet. he still has the ugly black beard, bandanna covering his baldness, Jimi Hendrix intro, and the tie-dye tights. he is still HOLLYWOOD, just in color. thats probably why Hogan's "nostalgia trip" is wearing of, becauseits not nostalgic to look at the same guy we saw in WCW 3 years ago. bring back "Real American," bring back the old short yellow tights, and shave the beard, and they might actually get some more life out of him.

    But...if he shaves, people will realize that this ISN'T THE 1980S! They'll realize that it's the year 2002, and we don't need Hogan anymore! We need GOOD WRESTLING! TESTIFY!!

    What about him taking someone under his wing. A young up-and-comer who needs the heat that Hogan brings. That way he doesn't wrestle anymore, but the WW gets some use out of him.

    Maybe a Benoit when he comes back, or Rhyno????

    Yeah...or they could get a big guy and have him make boat noises. Or maybe get some guy and dress him kinda like the Ultimate Warrior's own personal Mini-Me. Or give him a retard who wants to dress like him after getting bonked in the head.

    The lesson of history is the only people who end up worse than Hogan's enemies are Hogan's friends.

    Because to the fans it doesn't make that much of a difference. Voodoo child is a much better intro than Real American, the boas and all are way more over the top and help hype up the crowd much better than him walking out and cupping his ear all the time while looking 'young and energetic'
    Small chance that if/when he retired just for once he will come out to American..or at least when he leaves the ring..

    At least Jericho is squating down now when he puts The Walls on. For the longest time he was just standing straight up with his opponents ankles under his armpits. Feel the pain!
