Embedded in the video below is footage of Mickie James on "Daybreak" in the United Kingdom:
Stone Cold Steve Austin had a great run, no doubt about it, but Hulk Hogan has had a longer run in the ubsiness with being on top. And regarding Hogan’s wrestling ability, if you look at his matches in Japan, you see him wrestle differently than in the states. What many don’t realize about Hogan is that he was very intelligent and he kept things simple for himself if they worked. Because the states calls for more showmanship than wrestling maneuvers, he emphasized that here but in Japan, he emphasized more wrestling.Kevin, wrestling is only the name of the game if it is actual wrestling (like the Olympics). But in what we know as pro wrestling, it isn’t about who does the best moves or has the best transitions between moves. It’s about who can get the audience to connect with them to where fans are happy just to see the wrestler regardless if his match is a DUD. It isn’t about whether a person put on the greatest matches, it’s about whether they can get to a place where millions of people buy tickets, watch television or order pay per views just to see them. Austin definitely accomplished this and no disrespect to him but he did not hold the top spot for as long as Hogan and is not as recognized as Hogan.
