Studying pretty hard lately with finals week starting Monday... Usually, I'll go randomly surfing on YouTube.com for matches. Somehow or another, I found myself watching Hulk Hogan vs. The Rock from Wrestlemania 18.

The match itself was a huge success because the WWE gave the fans what they wanted: a dream match-up.

The crowd in Toronto, Canada went absolutely apeshit for the entire match, though were probably additionally excited because it was the first time Hogan was in a WWF ring since 1993, and of course, the first Wrestlemania in Toronto since Wrestlemania 6 when Hogan lost to the Warrior. But just LISTEN to this crowd... 100% invested.

Sad fact is in today's 2010 WWE, there is absolutely no current roster match-ups heading into Wrestlemania 27 that could even get 1/10 of this kind of heat, which say through 2002, was pretty much regular for a Wrestlemania event. WWE would have to bring in someone, say Rock or Steve Austin to get a huge Wrestlemania pop given the way they've exhausted many match possibilities from the current WWE roster through the many Pay Per Views the WWE insists it must have each year.

But anyway, enjoy your weekend and enjoy a GREAT between Hogan and Rock:
