Hulk Hogan and Sting are currently wrestling for TNA, but this doesn’t stop them from being loved by WWE fans.
During the Night of Champions PPV, fans had a chance to vote for their favorite United States and WWE Champions of all time. Surprisingly, Sting and Hogan won the respective polls even though they’re not current WWE wrestlers. What’s even more amazing is that Sting has never worked for Vince McMahon in his entire life.
Hogan being chosen as the best WWE Champion of all time was shocking too. He managed to beat out the likes of Stone Cold Steve Austin, John Cena, CM Punk and Triple H. I guess this tells us that WWE fans still love the old-school wrestlers more than anyone else.
The only sad part about this is that it’s very unlikely that either of them will return to the WWE soon. Hogan has lots of power in TNA and is paid handsomely. Not to mention, TNA’s schedule isn’t as hectic as the WWE’s as they don’t have to travel too often. Sting, on the other hand, doesn’t trust McMahon and always feared he’d never be pushed correctly in the WWE.
This is unfortunate considering WrestleMania XXX is just around the corner. Hogan was responsible for making WrestleMania popular in the first place back in the ’80s. As for the fans, they miss out on a dream match between the Undertaker and Sting. This is a match that has been fantasized for many years, but sadly won’t become a reality.
