Hogan in 2002

Once the nostalgia buzz wore off, it seemed Hulk Hogan found a really suitable spot as Tag Team Champion with Edge in the Summer of 2002.  How come just a few weeks later, they were losing the titles and Hogan was being killed off by the newcomer Brock Lesnar?  Then he finally returns six months later, but to feud with Mr. McMahon?  I'm assuming Hogan's ego got involved along the way?

Yeah, Hogan was fine putting people over as long as he was getting his win back, brother, but Vince dangled that carrot in front of him and then once it became apparent that Survivor Series 02 would not in fact result in Hulk getting the belt from Brock, he was out, dude. *Flexes*.
