WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan spoke to Sports Illustrated’s Extra Mustard recently. You can check out a few highlights below:
“If I was Roman Reigns, I would just listen to what the people want. If they want to boo me, then it’s like Razor Ramon would say–’I’ll be the ‘Bad Guy’ for you.’ Roman Reignsshould be as evil as he wants. If they’re booing him, then that’s what they want to see.”
“Triple H has stood the test of time. When he is in the ring, everybody loves watching him wrestle. His work goes back to DX and the NWO–the more evil he is, the more the people cheer him. Wrestling is in his blood, and people know what to expect when he gets in the ring, so people cheer his ass.”
Working at WrestleMania events:
“Once you get there in front of 100,000, the final element is how you respond to the people. Usually by the time you get to a crowd that big, you already have your act together. With a crowd that big–even if you bodyslam a giant–the signals come back awkwardly. It’s such a sea of people, you need to be able to read the crowd and roll to it. That’s why you see Triple H perform on a different level to connect with the crowd. That’s the mental aspect, and that shows you who the masters are out there.”
Hogan also goes on to talk about the Gawker trial and much more.
