Former Universal and WWE Champion Seth Rollins is certainly one of the top Superstars in the company right now. He also respects those who came before him and paved the way to his success, but even Rollins has exceptions to this rule.
While speaking on The Complex Sports Podcast, Seth Rollins shared his Mount Rushmore of pro-wrestling. While mentioning Hulk Hogan, Rollins made sure to mention that Shawn Michaels is his favorite pro-wrestler of all time.
Seth Rollins then explained why he chose Hogan over Michaels and then also noted that regardless of his contributions to pro wrestling, Hulk Hogan isn’t a great human being.
“Shawn’s my favorite wrestler of all time, but we’re talking about contributions to WWE and what they’ve meant to the business, and look, if it were up to me, in that situation, I would scratch Hogan off that sucker probably. But again, if we’re just talking not the kind of human being you are but we’re talking about your contributions as a wrestler to the company, okay, Hogan was responsible for everything that happened after the late ’80s.”
“Look, Hulk’s always been really nice to me, but that doesn’t make him a great human being.”
While Hulk Hogan will forever be remembered for his several contributions to the world of pro wrestling, his racist comments in a leaked tape years ago definitely destroyed his reputation and even now he is trying to rebuild it all over again.
