Eric Bischoff Says Scott Hall And Kevin Nash Was Really Excited To Team Up With Hulk Hogan
A lot of the big names of professional wrestling back then left WWE to join WCW along with Hulk Hogan. The Macho Man Randy Savage, Lex Luger, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash and Ric Flair were to name a few. The blow was very difficult for WWE to deal with.
Hulk Hogan started his WCW career as a baby faced but in 1996 he turned heel by shocking the entire world of professional wrestling. He teamed up with the Outsiders and formed a new stable named The New World Order.
At that time it was really a huge deal for any wrestler to work with Hulk Hogan. And forming a stable with the Hulkstar was even a bigger deal without any doubt. On a recent edition of the 83Weeks podcast WWE Hall of famer and former WCW president Eric Bischoff that Kevin Nash and Scott hall were really excited and thrilled to be teaming up with Hogan. He said;
“Scott was chill. He was like, ‘Dude, Hulk Hogan, he’s the shit.’ He was cool with it. He had that laid-back approach to it and saw the opportunity because Scott is a very smart guy when it comes to the wrestling industry.
“He knew it was gonna be big. Kevin was really excited. So, early on, there were no issues about it. Later, it would become a little challenging because of the different personalities and egos and getting three people who have kind of been singles stars in their own right to work together consistently night after night. That was a bit of a challenge. But going into it, they were thrilled.”
