Jim Ross Provides Insight On Steve Austin Never Wrestling Hulk Hogan In WWE

AEW Commentator Jim Ross did a deep dive with Conrad Thompson about Judgment Day 2002 on the latest episode of the Grilling JR Podcast. While discussing the main event, a match between Hulk Hogan and the Undertaker for the WWE Undisputed Championship, Ross explained why “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, the white-hot superstar whose relationship with the company had almost completely deteriorated by May of 2002, wasn’t in that main event against Hogan, but was instead relegated to a handicap match lower on the card.

Jim Ross Explains Why Steve Austin vs. Hulk Hogan Never Happened in WWE

Steve Austin vs. Hulk Hogan has gone down as one of the greatest "What If?" matches in WWE history. The pair only ever wrestled once when they were both in the WWE in the early 2000s via a tag team match involving The Rock, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall on the Monday Night Raw before WrestleMania X8. Austin would go on to wrestle Scott Hall at that event, while Rock took on Hogan in a clash of icons. Both sides have talked about why the match never came to fruition and Jim Ross provided his perspective on the situation during the latest Grilling JR podcast. He explained that Austin was cautious about working with Hogan after seeing how "The Hulkster" worked with The Undertaker at Judgement Day in May 2002.

Why Steve Austin Never Had a Singles Match Against Hulk Hogan

During a recent episode of his podcast, “Grilling JR,” Jim Ross discussed the 2002 Judgment Day PPV match between Hulk Hogan and The Undertaker. “The match was not an artistic success. But it wasn’t because those guys didn’t work their asses off. You’ve got a guy that’s got a bad back and he’s not a spring chicken … Taker tried to do all he could to make the match a success, but it just didn’t get the job done. And that’s sad to say when you’re talking about two legit legends like Taker and Hulk.”
