Jim Ross reveals why Steve Austin didn’t want to work with Hulk Hogan. The two were the biggest WWE Superstars. However, they never faced each other in the ring.
While Hulk Hogan took the WWE to the very top, Stone Cold Steve Austin ensured that the promotion stayed there. Arguably two of the biggest stars the world has ever seen, it is indeed surprising that the duo never faced each other inside a WWE ring.
The fans would have lapped it up. While Hogan carried the rock and wrestling era, Austin defined the Attitude era. This would have been the biggest match on earth if it were to happen. However, Austin didn’t feel that there was any chemistry between the two.
Jim Ross reveals why Steve Austin didn’t want to work with Hulk Hogan
The legendary former WWE commentator Jim Ross, revealed on this week’s episode of “Grilling JR” why Austin never played ball with Hulk Hogan.
“Austin had it in his mind that Hogan’s style and Austin’s style were oil and water,” Jim Ross said. He just didn’t feel the chemistry.
‘Austin was never about having good matches. Austin was about having great matches. He knew better than anybody else in the world who he could work the best with. Hogan wasn’t on that list.
‘Steve could be wrong too. I’m not saying that Hogan and Austin couldn’t have a good match. Look at the match Hogan had at WrestleMania 18 with the Rock. Steve is a stubborn guy and he just didn’t feel it.
‘That’s what we are trying to explain in meeting with these guys is that there is a new sheriff and town and his name is Stone Cold. It is not Hulkamania anymore.
‘But if we could use Hulkamania in a bitter way, in an angry way, maybe we could get a WrestleMania out of it. That was the idea but it never came to fruition.
‘It didn’t happen because Steve didn’t push for it. I believe Hogan probably would have gone along with it because it would have been a great payday and he could have worked with Austin.”
