You make great points... And again, I'm not a Hogan-fan myself. But keep in mind, Pro Wrestling isn't about "Wrestling". And the wrestling aspect has gradually decreased since the time Hogan first won the WWF belt. The most important aspect is the ability to draw... That's always been important and is probably more so now. The ability to work the mic– another critical skill. Charisma– Again, it's always been an component but even more so over the 30 years. And the ability to make your opponent look credible is a fundamental skill that the great ones share. All this went goes into creating the "story" and yeah, Hogan couldn't wrestle a lick, but he had charisma by the buckloads... he could work the mic and in his own way could put opponents over. Hogan learned the "Jerry Lawler technique" of putting guys over by letting them beat the blazes out of you for several minutes and then doing the herculean comeback. Most other wrestlers would do that by letting their opponent do what they want to with them for a few moves, kick out from a pin attempt and they would take over the match for a few moves– back & forth, back & forth. Hogan's matches were generally short so there wasn't much back & forth. Maybe a little at the beginning but then the heel would punish Hogan for several minutes, Hogan would come back, leg-drop, pin. I thought his matches sucked but obviously most ate it up. The guy could draw. No doubt in my mind that Hogan is one of the top-10 greatest of all time. Ahead of Austin. Ahead of HHH. Ahead of Cena. Ahead of the Undertaker. Ahead of the Rock. There are only a few guys I would put ahead of Hogan.
