Hogan and Hall

Did Hulk Hogan and Scott Hall ever have an actual singles match against each other at any point in their career (not counting one of those Nitro bait-and-switch deals)? Maybe I'm crazy but it seems like their styles would have been a pretty fun fit if the opportunity had presented itself for Hogan vs. Razor ... Read more
