WrestleMania Why Not Hogan VS Piper

Adrian StaehleSenior Analyst IMarch 16, 2009

Hulk Hogan has had some great matches at WrestleMania but not the match that I and the world wanted to see. WrestleMania I had these two in the same ring but it was not the match I really wanted to see.

WrestleMania II: They could have kept the rivalry going from WrestleMania I but they decided to put Piper vs Mr. T and Hogan vs King Kong Bundy I mean I liked the Piper/T boxing match but this was the chance to make WrestleMania big a year earlier.

WrestleMania III: Piper and Hogan could have been on a collusion course if it wasn't for Andre the Giant. Don't get me wrong, the Hogan/Andre match was awesome so I would only added Piper to make the match intresting but that's me.

WrestleMania IV: Piper wasn't even apart of WrestleMania IV so that could with the tournament set up in a build of a life time Hogan vs Piper for the vacant title it would have been the best scenario for WrestleMania but it never happened.

WrestleMania V: Piper again not apart of WrestleMania for the second straight year and another chance wasted for these to get it on instead it was the Mega Powers and they put on a good match but I think it could have been better and breath taking to watch.

WrestleMania VI: This could have been it WrestleMania VI in the Skydome Hogan vs Piper in the biggest match in history but it was not to be as Piper faced Bad News Brown to a no contest and Hogan and Warrior did put on one hell of a show but a lot would agree they would have rather see Piper in that spot.

WrestleMania VII: Piper for the first time being there was not in a match but in Virgil corner to help him against DiBiase as it was perfect timing with Hogan and Slaughter but again another missed chance for Hogan and Piper.

WrestleMania VIII: Hogan was facing Sid and Piper losing to Bret Hart in a epic match but even if wasn't going to be a WWE Title match building those two up for a WrestleMania match would have been epic but again another missed chance for the WWE.

WrestleMania IX-WrestleMania XIX: These two went to WCW to battle it out but it would have been better to see them on the biggest stage of them all WRESTLEMANIA.

WrestleMania XIX: A little to late to see Piper and Hogan at all even if it was Piper hitting Hogan ith a pipe so the question is to you did the WWE mess up by not letting them face on the biggest stage of them all at WrestleMania.
