Chad Dukes of CBS Radio Washington DC 106.7 The Fan and recently talked to WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan. Here are some highlights;


One change he would make to his career:

“As far as wrestling goes, I would have changed one thing, and I really wasn’t thinking. My whole gimmick was ‘The Largest Arms in the World.’ I was the first guy to have the big arms, I mean Billy Graham had it but my arms were bigger, I was way over 300lbs, and I had the largest arms in the world. So, why do the legdrop? Why land on your tailbone for 35 years and have 9 back surgeries? When if you’re working the gimmick brother and you’ve got the largest arms in the world wouldn’t you use the sleeper?”

Praise for Bray Wyatt:

“He fits in that grey area, and I’m gonna put myself over, that I started when I turned bad guy, Hollywood Hogan and people cheered me. It just showed the fans, whether you’re good guy or bad guy, they’re gonna cheer who they love and like to watch perform and I think he kinda broke down that barrier again. At first I was like ‘Oh man what is this guy doing,’ and then I started watching him and with the mind games and the rap and basically how good he was in the ring. I remember one pay-per-view he wrestled Daniel Bryan in the opening match, was like a year or so ago, nobody could follow that match. It was the first match of the pay-per-view and they tore it down. Daniel Bryan and Bray Wyatt. And I said this guy’s gonna be red-hot.” 

The Hardcore legend Mick Foley recently talked to and commented on his appearance earlier;


“It was very flattering to try and enhance that match in people’s minds. Just a year before, I was sitting at home like, “I wonder why they’re not calling me?” Then they called me to be on their panel for Survivor Series, which I really had no illustrious history doing. This year I’m just glad The Big Guy was like, “What about Mick Foley?” I hadn’t been on the show for 7 months or so. I think it showed me and the fans that I can still be valuable on that show in limited doses. I’ll look forward to the next call 7 or 8 months from now and contribute in other ways. They got the Network and a bunch of other projects. There’s always a little role for Mrs. Foley’s little boy.”
