The clear difference is that Rhulk is surprised by Thor's attack in the second fight and Thor doesn't give him a chance to recover from the first hit that Rhulk is not ready for.

> The Hulk makes a sudden recovery and takes another beating that seems endless(!) but doesn't fall?! The Red Hulk... overloads(?) and is floored by one punch from the Hulk.

That's because the Hulk is growing STRONGER while taking that beating. Plus, where does it state or show that Red Hulk "overloads"? All he comments on is that he is getting so hot.

> The Red Hulk is X-times stronger that Thor or the Hulk that we know, but it appears he can only sustain those levels for a limited time. I think that makes sense from a plotting perspective as I always said there had to be a 'Trick' the the Red Hulk, a flaw in his power in line with the Juggernauts for example. It's just that it was so crowbarred in and conveniently done here it seems unduly forced - How could Banner/Hulk possibly guess Red Hulks heat output to be such a fundamental key weakness?

How do you come to the conclusion that Red Hulk's heat output is such a fundamental key weakness? You never see ANY indication that Red Hulk is weakening. He only comments that he getting so hot. Nowhere does the book state that he can only sustain those levels for a limited time. What is stated is that Hulk is getting stronger. Thus, "getting stronger" is the reason he KOed Red Hulk with one punch until otherwise specified.
