With his time with WCW he usually got one of the loudest pops from the crowd during his promo's and entrances. He was definitely a fan favourite throughout his entire career. That was until he had his mini stint with the WWE Back in 02.

The Rock and Austin owned the wrestling world from 1997-2003. The only guys who reached there popularity were guys like Goldberg and Sting who were were only able to maintain it for 2-3 years before dropping.
