Famed wrestling play-by-play man Tony Schiavone, who is currently the lead commentator for MLW, held a Q&A on his podcast What Happened When. One of the questions Schiavone received was what WWE match he wish he could have called but couldn’t. Schiavone’s answer? The WrestleMania 18 showdown between “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan and The Rock.
I would have loved to have called the Hogan versus Rock from WrestleMania match. I think that would have been a lot of fun. Talking about the history of Hulk Hogan, and being in Toronto, and I never got to call a Rock match. I really think calling that match would have been great.
Schiavone did work for the WWE for one year between 1989-1990, calling the Summerlsam and Royal Rumble pay per views. Most of his tenure took place with NWA/WCW until the promotion ended in 2001.
