Wrestlemania is the WWE's biggest pay-per-view of the year, and since it's the 25th anniversary, Vincent Kennedy McMahon is going to go all out. That means he is willing to bury hatchets, and get over just about anything.
The Hall of Fame ceremony happens annual, the day before Wrestlemania. As of today, they have announced the first man going in this year: "Stone Cold" Steve Austin.
Steve Austin represented a normal man who got to beat up his boss, a man that did things on air no one had ever seen, and he transcended the business.
He was arguably the most popular wrestler ever, and to this date, his T-shirts sell more than most active wrestlers.
The other person people argue is the most popular wrestler ever, is "Hollywood" Hulk Hogan. Hogan revolutionized professional wrestling in the '80s and the early '90s. His popularity was gained through an Americana persona, and an obvious love for the fans.
The WWE has tried to have Austin vs. Hogan matches before, and obviously, it didn't go through. The original plan for Wrestlemania X8 was Hogan vs. Austin, but Austin, who has always hated Hogan, nixed the idea.
Although it may be a long shot, Hogan vs. Austin would be just the match to put Wrestlemania 25 over as the best of all time. [Of course it would require other superb matches]
So what do you guys, think? Do you want to see Austin vs Hogan at Wrestlemania?
If so, give me a hell yeah!
