Lance Storm’s Reaction To Hulk Hogan’s Apology For Not Putting In As Much Effort In The Ring
Hulk Hogan’s career in WWE might not be over just yet. He appeared at the WWE Crown Jewel event but Hogan hasn’t stepped foot in a ring on US soil since his 2014 “suspension” which was more like an erasing.
But as Lance Storm discussed what it takes to really get heat during F4 Weekly, he told a story about The Hulkster that really puts it into perspective how Hogan viewed the business. But at the top of his game and over as all get out, The Hulkster was in a place where it was easy to get heat so it didn’t require the effort it could have otherwise.
“I wrestled Hulk Hogan in 2002 when he did his comeback tour when he teamed with Edge. He even said one night because Jay, Adam, and I were the ones the ones who did a bulk of the physical work in that tag team program let’s not kid ourselves.”
“There was one point where Hogan came up and said. ‘Man I feel bad, you guys are putting in all the work. You’re putting all the ideas together and taking all the bumps. I just looked at him and I was like, ‘Dude, just bring the people. We’ll do all the work.’ It’s like, ‘You’re over, life gets easy.’ That’s where if you just take the time to create over babyfaces, heat’s easy to get.”
The conversation was dealing with WWE’s constant need to draw heat on babyfaces that just didn’t work out. It comes off as more mean than anything and babyfaces aren’t able to get over before they’re pummeled back down. It was easy for Hogan because he had 20 years of Hulkamania running wild at that point in his career. Maybe someday WWE will get it if I were a betting man they’re using some different kind of math to figure out these problems that Vince McMahon came up with in his head.
