Hulk Hogan Discusses Vince McMahon Relationship, Obstacles with TNA & More

Hulk Hogan recently spoke with STLtoday.com. Here are some highlights from the interview.

Early obstacles with TNA: “Communication was tough. The creative people were kind of a wild card. It was a situation where we all sat in a meetings and agree on creative directions. … We would agree on stuff, then I would sit back and watch the show and it was completely different than what we talked about earlier in the production meetings. … Those were the biggest hurdles I had in the beginning was why this perfect little unit wasn’t functioning as planned. The biggest obstacle was keeping people from going into business for themselves.”

His relationship with Vince McMahon: “On a personal level we are fine. Business is business with Vince. At the end of the day, I’m not working there. Basically, Vince does what’s best for business for him. … On a personal level, Vince will give you the shirt off his back and I know that.”

Comparing his babyface character to John Cena’s: “I don’t think you can compare the two. Everyone has their time and their moment, and the business changes on a daily basis. What we’re talking about today might not be relevant a week from now.

“The John Cena I watch on TV, and know, started out being a Hulkamaniac when he was a kid. He said he fell in love with the wrestling business and had certain favorites and at the end of the day, simply because he is such a great performer in the ring and that he has been around so long. The last time I was in the WWE, he was just starting, which was about 10 years ago. It’s taken that long to develop his character — for him to be the man — for him to be one of the biggest leaders of all time of this business. And whether the fans boo him or whether the fans cheers for him, at the end of the day, they are loyal to him because he is a constant. They know he will deliver. He is going to always be there, and he is going to outperform anybody else around.

“I think there is a lot of respect involved and whether (the fans) like him or hate him, they believe in him and respect him.”

    and the later obstacles hulk?? oh that would be you

  • Z….

    The answer to that first question completely sickens me. He is straight up putting the blame on Russo when he is 100% describing EXACTLY what he has been doing the entire time. By the way, TNA was flourishing under Russo when he took over from Jeff Jarrett in 2009 and then took a turn towards pure garbage after January 2010…Hmm I wonder what happened….

      They signed hogan& bitchoff

      • Z….

    Tna sucks bad now! Hulk really doesnt have all the blame I mean who wouldn’t take advantage of a dumb bimbo like Dixie Carter if you could its Dixie’s fault for even hiring Hulk Hogan and then on top of that paying him so much money

    • Z….

      I guess thats one way to look at it, especially when you consider that she extended his and bischoff’s contracts a couple of years ago…
