Ever since Hulk Hogan was reinstated into the WWE Hall of Fame last month, multiple wrestling personalities have shown their support for the Hulkster.
The support continues as former WWF Interviewer Ken Resnick took the Hulkster’s side during a recent interview.
During a recent appearance on the Pancakes and Powerslams Show, Resnick talked about how he had seen Hulk Hogan treating African-American wrestlers, a specific example of seeing Hulk Hogan and Junkyard Dog interacting in locker room and more.
Below are the highlights:
On how he had seen Hulk Hogan treating African-American wrestlers:
“I worked with Hulk in the AWA, I worked with Hulk in the WWF, but we also spent time together. We spent a lot of off-camera time together talking. I saw the way he was in dressing rooms with other people and those comments (that led to his release from WWE in 2015) he made were absolutely disappointing. But I can tell you in all the years I had known Hulk I never, ever saw anything close to that. Never saw that side of him. He certainly worked with and did programs with African-American wrestlers… he always liked them, respected them.
I’d like to think that everybody has a breaking point and when those comments came out, he was going through the bitter, very public divorce with Linda, his son was going through everything as a result of that horrible car accident. I kinda think he just snapped. He was not the Hulk that I knew and we’ve gotten together on a couple instances since. He’s always been great to me, very warm to me. I can understand, certainly, on the heels of those comments, WWE kind of taking him off to air for a while, but I’m very glad that he’s back in the Hall of Fame and I’ve seen a number of comments he has made since that I choose to believe and feel were absolutely genuine.
I know how much fans meant to Hulk and mean to Hulk because I had countless opportunities to see him interact. I think he’s genuinely not only hurt for himself for having said those things and having them become public in the way and the manner of which it did, but I think he took it very hard and personal that he disappointed a lot of his fans. I’m glad that he’s back and have nothing but the most love and respect for him.”
On a specific example of seeing Hulk Hogan and Junkyard Dog interacting in locker room:
“One very specific instance in my time with (WWF), Hulk was working a program and teaming up with Junkyard Dog. So, I had the opportunity to see Hulk interacting with JYD in the locker room before the matches, after the matches, and it was the utmost mutual respect on both sides. It’s one thing to talk generally about it, but there’s a specific example. JYD and Hulk together had a long run teaming up.”
