Hulk Hogan has seen a lot in his legendary career. The two-time WWE Hall of Famer has a lot to say about the current crop of pro wrestlers as well.
Pro wrestling has certainly evolved over the past few decades. Gone are the days of buff steroid-driven musclemen, as smaller indie talent have taken over a majority of the card. Hulk Hogan noticed this trend, and he might not be 100% for it.
Hulk Hogan recently spoke to the Full Send podcast, and he opened up about today’s pro wrestling landscape. While going into the business today, he also made a quip that some of the pro wrestlers making the rounds today should be bagging groceries instead.
“All the guys I wrestled looked like monster sized and nowadays, there are a lot of guys that look like wrestlers and a lot of guys that don’t. A lot of guys that look like wrestlers, and then you got guys that look like they should be bagging my groceries. So the difference is How athletic the guys are. Smaller guys can do all kinds of crazy stuff. They do so much impressive stuff in one match, I wouldn’t do that much in a year. But what does it mean? You know?”
Hulk Hogan might be a bona fide WWE legend, but he was also involved with a lot of controversy along the way. This comment is just another in a long list of triggering things Hogan has made.
Even today, stories about difficulty working with The Hulkster is coming to light. We can only imagine how his ego would be if Hogan could add rock star to that list of accolades. After all, he still claims that he tried out to be Metallica’s drummer.
WWE will continue with their new generation of Superstars. That doesn’t mean that Hulk Hogan is going to be a big fan of how things are going down.
