Without Hogan WWE would still have grown just at a slower pace probably. Beyond Hogan WWE grew due to buying up talent, working with MTV and being on the cutting edge of cable and closed circuit/PPV. As others said he would have found someone else to push. Maybe Piper, Patera, Hillbilly Jim or Savage. It would probably have to be a bigger guy size wise, decent promos and American or close enough to be portrayed that way.

Several people tried to convince Fritz that he could have taken World Class to a much bigger scale based on the ratings of the syndicated show. But Fritz was certain that Texas was all his boys would ever need.
What about WCCW was it ? (Not 100% sure got right federation) . Had idea of going global (before WWF ?) but promoter wasn't interested in the idea . What would of happened ?
Combination of Fritz not wanting to go into anyone else's territory and who he was away from the ring probably playing a huge factor in the downfall of his family and by association, the popularity of his promotion.
