8. Bruce Prichard Recalls Why Stone Cold Wasn’t The One To Face Hulk Hogan At WrestleMania 18

On a recent edition of “Something To Wrestle With” podcast, Bruce Prichard recalled why Stone Cold wasn’t the one to face Hollywood Hogan at WrestleMania 18. Below is what Prichard said:

“Well I can tell you from my vantage point and my discussions were, where are we going to go because the match was Austin and Hulk or Rock and Hulk. I think everyone agreed that Austin and Hulk were the bigger match that we had to get to, so the feeling was, why to give to them first, let’s build it some more.

Rock and Hogan were interchangeable in their careers. Originally it was planned for Rock and Hulk and then eventually get to Austin and Hulk at some point, whether that be at the next WrestleMania or not.

There may have been discussions where one wasn’t going to put the other over, but that was just gesturing and positioning.”
