It seems to be accepted on how the Hulkster was responsible for the mainstream explosion of the 80's. I've been thinking lately that Piper deserves more credit for his role in being the foil than Hulk does for being the conquerer of the evil force.
Would the success still have happened if Vince had Hogan just do the big fat challenger of the month like it turned into, or was Piper actually the key?
He was certainly ONE OF the keys, but without Hogan it doesn’t work at all. I certainly wouldn’t say Piper deserves more credit.
