With all the news regarding Hogan's surprising return (for now a one shot deal), it reminded me of that mega huge 10 minute standing ovation pop from Smackdown a few years ago. I have been trying to think if there has been a moment as surreal and exciting as the way the crowd reacted to him. Not even The Rock or Steve Austin in their prime ever received a non-stop 10 minute standing ovation from the entire arena. Can anyone think of a crowd reaction that even comes close?

Ric Flair rejoins WCW and the Horseman. The ovation was not as long, but the meaning of the moment was the same.

"Abuse of power!!" all he could scream at Eric Bischoff, a great moment.

The only difference between the Hogan ovation and the Flair one was that Hogan let his ovation go on for ten minutes.

They would have cheered for Flair for two hours that night. Flair realized that there was a show to do, got on the mike and delivered a great promo.

WCW was forcing Flair to talk, Eric cut the segment because of time.

WWE was letting the man who made them celebrate the fans as they celebrated him. As bad as people talk about Hulk, this night belonged to the fan.

Hulk Hogan is an undeniable legend in the sport and should be treated as such. He should be looked at in the same light as Flair. The 10 minute ovation, he was overcome with emotion (understandably) after all the rumours and power struggles the fans still loved him. That is the ultimate mark of respect for a great man.

Foley got a 10 minute standing ovation from the crowd after he won the title the first time. Too bad they couldn't show it all or at least put it on a DVD as and extra or easter egg.

One pop ill never forget is the one Taker got when he came back at Judgment Day 00 at the end of the Iron Man match. It's the closet ive ever seen a crowd to become involved in an all out riot.

Whether or love or hate him you have to admit the fans went absolutely apeshit when Goldberg won the WCW title from Hogan. Maybe it wasn't a long ovation like the others (although they went off the air so i don't know how long it lasted) but possibly the biggest pop I've heard.

What's scary is... the biggest pop I've ever been a part of live? It was for Vince McMahon.

That match had the biggest pop of all time at the end. But it was when Stone Cold's music hit and he came down and drilled the Rock with a chair giving Foley the win.

The glass shattered and the place freaking exploded.

Actually, the loudest pop of late has been Rock returning. He got a major pop to come out to help Eugene the first time. All you coud hear from his music was If ya and that was it. I will the loudest pop I ever heard live was for Foley at this year's Rumble, I lost my damn voice.

Hogan is an icon and something from days gone past where the good guys won and no one cared about backstage politics or buyrates or ratings. Its not to say it never happened and Hogan should have dropped the belt to Piper or someone of that nature, but he will always be a part of most of our childhood. He should get standing Ovations and a big return. However, he should not be put in the title picture or most main events. I am hoping for Hogan to have one last run, putting over most of the new guys and then retiring into the night.

How many "last runs" does Hogan get before people realize he's pulling the same old bullshit he always has? It seems like every single time he "returns," it's for that "last big run" before he retires and fades off into the sunset. The man will never go away.

Hogan probably got such a great pop because the people in the arena didn't think that hogan would ever return to being a good guy and they didn't want him to go back to being a bad guy.They gave Hogan something to think about if he ever was unsure of which direction to go.

I may have mentioned this before, but one of the biggest pops for ECW came at a show I was at. The lights go out, and when it comes back on, Jerry Lawler was in an ECW ring. I have never heard a reaction like that in ECW.

I love when criticisms of Hogan, or anyone really, don't even make sense. Who said anything about a last run? He's appearing in a pre-taped segment on Smackdown last I heard, the same deal Austin and Foley are getting. Hardly a cry for attention. If anything it will brighten up a dismal product, having, you know, actual stars appear on the show instead of no-name hosses attempting to sodomize commentators.

Same here. His return on Raw after being "banned" from the WWF at Fully Loaded '99. "No Chance" hit and the fans were expecting Shane, and out strolls Vinnie Mac to defend his wife from Triple H. It was surreal.

That match had the biggest pop of all time at the end. But it was when Stone Cold's music hit and he came down and drilled the Rock with a chair giving Foley the win.

Agreed. Every single person in that arena jumped to their feet and the noise drowned out the entrance music. A truly classic moment.

Agreed. Austin's always had huge pops when his music hits (even during his heel run), but that night was something else.

I was in the Georgia Dome when Goldberg won the title. There was a hell of a lot of shit being thrown after he won. I got completely doused with drinks. Extremely loud is all I can say.

Well to clarify, I didn't mean in the thread. I meant, have their been any legitimate inklings that such a plan is going into effect. Hardly seems worth dissecting something that isn't even beeing discussed by the involved parties.

That said, I too hope Hogan's done with WWE. Last thing I need is my childhood wrecked by him having to job to Orton.
