Elderly Gentlemen to Possibly Engage in Choreographed Fisticuffs

Bleacher Report suggests a Hulk Hogan vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin match could happen in the WWE.

Bleacher Report, which has featured charmingly loving coverage of pro wrestling for quite a while now, posted an article yesterday speculating on the possibility of a match between aged superstars Hulk Hogan and Stone Cold Steve Austin. Though the rivalry has been a fixture in the minds of wrestling fans for nearly two decades, this most recent round of speculation started up when the 49 year old Austin answered a question on the radio about which of the two was the bigger star:

If you're talking to me, it's going to be Stone Cold Steve Austin. If you guys are talking to Hulk, it's going to be him. I respect Hulk Hogan because his career lasted some 30 odd years. I think I lasted about 15, but during my peak years, I took the business to a height it never seen before.


Hogan, 61, wasn't going to take that kind of trash talk lying down, brother, even if doing so would actually be easier on his surgically replaced hips:

I think that’s in his own mind. My career was twice as long as his. I’ve been a main eventer since 1978 when we sold out Shea Stadium. I just totally disagree with him. I know he had a good run when he was in the Attitude Era. I don’t know how long the Attitude Era was — four years, eight years — I don’t know how long it was. That’s where we totally disagree. Maybe he and I should lock up and figure this thing out. That would be a nice match.


Two thoughts. First: Hogan has been a main eventer since the year before I was born, and that actually makes ME feel old. Second: That sounds like a challenge!

Bleacher Report goes on to halfheartedly make the case that neither man is technically too old to get in the ring and note that Hogan has expressed interest in wrestling current champion John Cena. This kind of talk comes up yearly, and will as long as both men are still breathing, but it does get more and more unlikely every year. Just because you can doesn't mean you should.

Still, train wreck though it might be, there's no way wrestling fans wouldn't tune in it to watch that match headline Wrestlemania. I know I would.
