Why Steve Austin didn't want to wrestle Hulk Hogan

During his recent Grilling JR podcast, Jim Ross commented on why Steve Austin never had a match against Hulk Hogan:

ďAustin had it in his mind that Hoganís style and Austinís style were oil and water. He just didnít 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 wasnít on that list. Steve could be wrong too. Iím not saying that Hogan and Austin couldnít have a good match. Look at the match Hogan had at WrestleMania 18 with the Rock. Steve is a stubborn guy and he just didnít feel it. Thatís 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 didnít happen because Steve didnít 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.Ē (quote courtesy of
