If Hulk Hogan has to go back to the WWE and steal a lot of money and attention from the younger, more talented and more deserving wrestlers on the card, then the WWE should at least book him in a match that belongs at WresteMania.
Hogan should wrestle Ric Flair. and Flair should win. Hogan and Flair were supposed to wrestle in the main event of WrestleMania in 1992, but it never happened. It was the ultimate dream match. Picture Manny Pacquiao vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr. It would have been like that, but only better.
The Flair vs. Hogan matchup never happened because neither guy reportedly wanted to lose. It’s too bad. Flair vs. Hogan, even in 1991, would have been one of the greatest matchups of all-time. Instead, we got Hogan taking on Sid Justice in a terrible match only made famous by the fact that the Ultimate Warrior did one of his many run-ins after disappearing for months at a time.
Flair wrestled Randy “Macho Man” Savage, in an epic match and storyline involving The Lovely Elizabeth. Flair produced altered photos supposedly of him and Elizabeth before she met Savage. The two wrestled in the co-main event and Flair dropped the title to the Macho Man.
Hogan and Flair would wrestle in several matches in WCW, but like most things WCW did, it wasn’t nearly as good as the WWE’s show.
Hogan doesn’t deserve to wrestle the big, top younger guys at the biggest show of the year. He should, however, do the job for Flair, a guy who he should have lost to a long time ago in the WWE.
