“Pretty touchy subject but all this black lives matter garbage baffles me. I challenge anyone of any color or race to go watch 12 years a slave, the movie and realize how good you all actually have it. Learn heritage. Christ, Gandhi, Budda; they all Taught love and caring for others. This is getting out of hand. I Pray for this nation daily.”
Ryker won’t have any problem being called lil’ Hogan as he revealed a couple of months back that the Hulkster is his favorite wrestler:
“Hulk Hogan. I was blown away by him at 5 years old, just captivated by him. Definitely Hulk Hogan.
I got a chance to work with Hogan in 2010 and 2012 in the ring. I saw him at WrestleMania this year, went up and shook his hand, and he instantly remembered me.
It was so cool. He’s like, ‘It’s good to see you, brother’.”
