Gorgeous George was the Babe Ruth of wrestling. He was the first megastar in the industry, just like Babe Ruth. Both were big time attractions, especially for what they were doing at the time (well before anyone else was doing the equivalent in their sport). Neither of them would be a great transition to the modern age because of that. You think Babe Ruth would have been crushing the ball like that against Bob Gibson in his prime, or saw anything like Randy Johnson's slider. George wouldn't be able to go in the ring with a Shawn Michaels in his prime.
Hogan is more like Hank Aaron or Ted Williams, or Nolan Ryan maybe.
Triple H is Barry Bonds. Everyone hates him and doubts the merits of many of his late career accomplishments

Hogan = The Babe Flair = Nolan Ryan (in my opinion the best pitcher of all time)
Some randoms: Owen Hart = Roberto Clemente Undertaker = Cal Ripken jr. Hbk = Ken Griffey jr Rey Mysterio = Ozzie Smith The Rock = Pedro Martinez Stone Cold = Ty Cobb Ken Shamrock = George Brett Triple H = Mariano Rivera John Cena = Barry Bonds The Miz = Brady Anderson Daniel Bryan = Dustin Pedroia CM Punk = Roy Halladay Samoa Joe = David Ortiz
