• “I don’t think the match had a chance in hell to live up to the hype” – Jim Ross On Hulk Hogan vs. Stone Cold
During an episode of the Grilling JR podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross talked about Hulk Hogan vs. “Stone Cold” Steve Austin not happening, which would’ve been the biggest dream match of all time.
Here’s what Good Ol’ JR said:
“I think Steve’s issue was just that Steve had a very high pace – intense, aggressive, somewhat snug, high pace. That just may not have fit Hogan’s stylings at that time because of his back. But it would have been an interesting attraction.
Hey, it would have been a great poster. It would have been a great promo. It would’ve drawn interest, it would’ve made money, but I don’t think the match had a chance in hell to live up to the hype of the two stars.”
