In that, the plan was to have Hogan and McMahon face each other in a Hair vs Mask match. Whoever loses, which would have been McMahon, would have their head shaved. In fact, that would have been the way to bring back Hulk Hogan.

During his talk on Something to Wrestle, Bruce Prichard reflected on the same storyline and explained how it was supposed to move forward.

“There was [a plan for the end of the Mr. America angle] and it was pretty much the idea was to shave Vince [McMahon’s] head and have a hair versus mask match and shave Vince’s head but, look, it was all based on the Midnight Rider angle that Dusty [Rhodes] had done in Florida and [Bill] Watts and everybody under the sun had done some version of it and this was our version of it with [Hulk] Hogan and it eventually would bring Hogan back.” H/t Something to Wrestle

Even though this was scrapped, Hogan’s impact in the industry is huge. He was actually one of the individuals playing host for WrestleMania 37 alongside Titus O’Neil.
