Thats a good question. I always thought the Lou ferrigno Hulk just couldnt capture the strenght described in the Hulk Comics. Just lifting a car seemed like a feat on the show. Then the movies come along and BAM they capture the true strenght of the Hulk throwing a Tank like it were bicycle. So going back to a person would be hard to accept or to even suspend disbelief after seeing the CGI version.
