I believe it was.

Yep, it was the current Immortal Hulk that Slott had Thing defeat, with the blessing of Ewing.

I was happy with it. I think we get very slightly into some more Thing/Hulk comparison in #24, though it’s not a “nun-uh!” rematch.

Referring to the comparison in IH24 where Hulk origin is tied to FF and Galactus origins, as they all are tied to blends of Radiation/Cosmic magic

He also liked writing Ben Grimm in Empire enough that a rematch wouldnt be a sure win for the Hulk

“I haven't written the Thing before now - I thought going in that he'd be quite straightforward, but once I started writing him, I could see how much depth was there, and how he'd react both when things were relatively easy and when he was fighting on his last ounce of strength, seconds from death. Which I guess is a spoiler of sorts! Sorry, Thing fans, but we're going to put the idol of millions through some tough times…”

"Every time I write a new FF member, they become my favorite FF member. Case in point: The Thing. Just a couple of days ago I wrote a scene with Ben, and there's a reason he's one of the most beloved heroes Marvel has. I get a lot of "who's strongest" questions, being the writer of Hulk, and looking online I see a lot of people bragging -- or more likely complaining -- that their hero is, or isn't, displayed as strong enough. That they're getting jobbed, or winning in a single blow, or having "feats," or whatever. Ben isn't famous for winning fights; he's famous for not losing them. The Thing's strength is not that he can punch harder or lift more, or even take more punishment - it's that no matter what you do, he will never stay down. That, to me, means more than simple feats of strength."

He also said in an AIPT interview that he liked writing Thing so much, a rematch wouldnt necessarily favour Hulk

“What one character you haven’t written before Empyre has been the most fun to write now?”

"Probably the ever-lovin’ blue-eyed Thing. There’s a particular moment in the story where he really clicked for me, and I felt like I “got” him on a visceral level – he might be one of my favorite Marvel characters now. Which doesn’t bode well for ol’ Greenskin in their eventual rematch…"

Also Molina and Taylor had a kind of rematch in a one shot where the Hulk was driven out of Banner by Loki through magic and went into spiderman, Thing had to knock the immortal hulk-spider out.

As for the Time variance authority and the reckoning war i dont think it was ever referred again....
