From the desk of Swordsman Yen Maybe Brock will beat The Rock when Paul Heyman throws white powder in The Rock's face. Hogan will come in to check on The Rock, then Heyman challenges Hogan to fight Lesnar for the belt, prompting of course Hogan to beat Brock in under 30 seconds.
Not a chance. They won't do anything to give Hogan even a smidgen of heelish tendencies. He's popping arena crowds like crazy still, and his match with Vince at WMX9 will likely be his swan song. Believe it or not, he's been a model citizen ever since his return (despite still sucking in the ring).
I think he should interfere and help Rocky retain, since Brock isn't ready and the Federation would be better served by milking Angle as heel champ until he's ready to go train, THEN giving it to Brock and positioning Edge for the traditional big babyface win at WMX9 like Hogan did back in the day.

as much as I'd love to see it, I don't think Rock/Hogan II would generate the same emotions that the first one did. I'm thinking that Brock will win, simply because Rock's going to film his flick... do I think he's ready for it? Probably not. But it makes more sense to give it to him than to let Rock be the part-time champ... I just love the heel Hogan! What a swerve that would be, if he came down to the ring to help Rock- but drops a big leg on him instead! MWUHAHAHAHAHA....hehahAHAHAH!

That makes sense. Hogan could turn on the Rock, and join Brock and Paul Heyman. Hogan could say something like, "My time's almost up, brothers, so it's time to show the next Immortal one how to do things.". That could be good. Hogan would do the show of respect thing, saying that since Brock destroyed him in the ring, he's going to be the next big thing's trainer or something.
Sounds nuts? Well, considering HHH and Stone Cold were tag title co-holders, anything can happen.
Yep! Just because he has history with both guys doesn't make him the obvious run-in-candidate. And better keep him face. Hell, even myself - a former Hogan hater - marks out like crazy seeing him in the arena. Besides, he turned face by Rock, so he should turn heel again by Rock?
"Wanting people to listen, you can't just tap them on the shoulders anymore, you gotta hit them with a sledgehammer!"
What about if Hogan interferes but Rock turns on him? It would be awesome but they probably won't be doing it because of Rock's movie schedule and not being able to follow up on it big time right away. But I do think it's definitely an option for WMX9... you know what they say about Hogan always getting his pinfalls back
I don't get why Kane is seen as an Undisputed Champion. To me it just doesn't seem to fit. I might be cool, but I'm not sure it would work (or draw). He's probably better off chasing Brock.
O.K. Hogan runs in, horrifys crowd by nailing Rock, stares at Lesnar...they break into big grins! Heyman's in shock initially, but shakes it off and goes to shake Hogan's hand, when Heyman is shattered from behind by... the Island Boyz! Uncle Eric joins them in ring, where he tells Brock and Hogan, "Now, guys, now!" They tear off their shirts, Island Boyz tear off theirs, and....THE BAND IS BACK TOGETHER AGAIN, BABY!! nwo4life!
Alternate ending: Bisch shakes Heyman's, Brock's and Hogan's hands, then observes that, even though this is ppv, we've still got a schedule to keep...and this segment has gone about three minutes too long. The Island Boyz destroy Hogan and Brock, leave 'em lying, and you KNOW Raw is going to be a real barnburning slobberknocking good time!

No, I think Scott Hall will come down to the ring carrying a stungun, and attack Lesnar with it.
On the following SmackDown, Rock will be all “I didn't want Hall to do that” and give Brock a rematch out of respect-- only for the same thing to happen again. But this time, after Hall's interference, Kevin Nash comes out and adds insult to injury with a Jackknife Powerbomb. They toss Rocky a T-shirt, and...
THE BAND IS BACK TOGETHER!
After this, zebras sing opera from the rooftops of Venice. And Satan takes advantage of the climate change in Hell by charging people an arm and a leg for sleigh rides.
Actually, if I can be serious for a minute...
I will be stunned if Lesnar doesn't walk out of SummerSlam as the Undisputed Champion. And I would be equally stunned if Hogan even shows up at SummerSlam. Hey, what happened to the reported Hogan-McMahon match that was supposed to happen, anyway? Not that I'm complaining!!!!

The irony to all of this is a Punk/Bryan Wrestlemania title match as an Austin/Rock WM X-7 type of deal would do more business than Orton/Batista. At least, the fans wouldn't be revolting at the shows.
