Back around Survivor Series, we booked how the main-event would turn out, and fun was had by all. Now, let’s  test out your best fantasy booking skills on a match between John Cena and Hulk Hogan. To keep things a bit more even both guys are in their prime. So, yes, Hogan can perform a leg drop without catastrophic effects.


Tale of the Tape

Hulk Hogan

Height: 6’7"

Weight: 302 lbs.

From: Venice Beach, California

6-time WWE Champion

John Cena

Height: 6’1"

Weight: 251 lbs.

From: West Newbury, Massachusetts

15-time WWE Champion


I’ll start things off...

Power: Hogan - While Cena has been given more opportunity to show off his strength, I will go with Hogan. His larger frame will help neutralize Cena. Hogan body slammed Andre the Giant!

Agility: Cena - He is not exactly quick as a cat but compared to Hogan, he’s The Flash. Also, on rare occasions has the ability to fly, which could be useful in getting Hogan off his feet.

Intelligence: Cena – Granted they are from two different eras, Cena has been able to use his environment much more effectively in matches.

Finishing Ability: Hogan – No one gets up from the leg drop.

Heart: Cena - Hogan has gone up against some evil men, but Cena’s battles have been much more vicious.

Winning 3-2, Cena would get the victory thanks to his ability to maneuver around Hogan’s power, and outlast the incredible onslaught, that is Hulkamania.


Now it's your turn, Cagesiders. How would the match flow, and who would come out victorious? There is no specific way to book. Play-by-play, strength/weaknesses, anything will work. In the poll, pick the winner, and rec which bookings are your favorite!
