    shawn michaels aka the heart break kid did it all he is the first grand slam winner in the companies history...also shawn was apart of the biggest group in wrestling history and made it was it was which was DX....also the main reason why HHH got a huge push later in his career but also shawn michaels has dont it all every match possible from ladders, hell in a cell which by the way he was the first in both kinds.....iron man match against bret hart which was an incredible match and his first heavyweight title run....also not many guys including hulk hogan can do that actually i dont think any of hogans matches lasted more then 12 minutes and hbk has done 4 iron man matches and a 57 minute match on raw against cena this year at 42 years old which is amazing to do at his age....also he is still 50 times better then more then half the wwe roster...and he can still put on main events day and night....hulk hogan washed up after NWO and i mean the original NWO not the either your NWO or WCW which was the death of WCW because it came down to the whole roster being NWO and maybe 6 WCW wrestlers....but hogan never won every title and never did any special match besides a cage match....shawn is a icon and a legend way beyond hogan and he has done more then hogan has.....

    It's like asking who is better? Evander Holyfield or Muhammad ALI...

    Think about it... It was Hulk Hogan who basically started the whole WWF phenomenon. He wasn't the greatest wrestler but he had an uncanny ability to work the crowd.

    He was the first to slam a giant. His best friends were movie stars (Rambo and the Terminator). He had his own cartoon. When they brought him back a few years ago to feud with HBK, the writers gave the win to Hulk Hogan. Also, look what he did when he went over to WCW. Nobody can draw in a crown the way Hogan can.

    Now don't get me wrong HBK will go down as one of the greatest with HITMAN, STONE COLD, HHH, ROCK but as far as 'who is the Greatest', that would have to go to Hulk Hogan.

    Legends like Roddy Piper, Rick Flair and Andre the Giant, would place second.

    Hulk Hogan is the greatest. You know when you hit the top of the ladder when you are one of the most reconizable faces in the world, your picture is every where. You are in TV, music videos, movies.

    If it was not for Hulk Hogan Shawn Michaels would be working in a strip club in Mexico.

    This one is easy. You can prove it to yourself. Do you know anyone who knows absloutely ZERO about wrestling? Wouldn't know a wrist lock from a wrist watch?

    Ask them, or better yet, show them two pictures, one of Hogan, the other of Michaels and ask if they know who these guys are. Most everybody knows who Hulk Hogan is. That's no knock against HBK. He's one of the greatest of all time, but he's not Hulk Hogan.

    Hulk Hogan. He is by far the most popular wrestler, compared to HBK.

    HBK become large in that tournament. His overselling thoroughly canceled out Hogan's underselling and it became out to be a noticeably strong tournament. i do not comprehend what become more suitable ridiculous, HBK's overselling or the dimensions of the american Flag in Hogan's the front.

    Right now, Hulk Hogan because he has had 6 world title reigns (6 wwf/e championship reigns) compared to Shawn Michaels' 4 world title reigns (3 wwf championship reigns, 1 world heavyweight championship reigns). Don't get me wrong, Shawn Michaels is one of the best ever and i think that he has another world title reign in him before he retires.

    As annoying as he is, Hogan is the greatest. He's the most well known, and has helped WWE rise up.

    Neither are the greatest in my book.

    But then again, ask anyone, wrestling fan or not, and they will know who Hulk Hogan is.
