Hollywood Hogan vs The Rock – WrestleMania X8

Today we take a look at one of my Top 10 favorite matches of all time, brother.

The Rock vs Hulk Hogan –
While from a technical stand-point it was no masterpiece, it’s in the category of sheer entertainment that this match shines. I get the chills everytime I see how the crowd reacts to Hogan, turning him babyface and getting him the WWE Championship all in one match. It’s absolutely incredible as they cheer everything he does, and remain on their feet for the entire match. The Rock was great too, as you can tell he certainly didn’t expect such a strong reaction, but played along with it like a pro. They didn’t simply rest on crowd reactions either, as the match was hard-hitting and delivered a bevy of false-finishes.
