• Controversial Former WWE Wrestler Feels WWE Wants To Use Hulk Hogan To Spike Their TV Ratings
During a recent interview with Ringside News, controversial former WWE wrestler Muhammad Hassan talked about “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan being reinstated into the WWE Hall of Fame.
Below are the highlights:
On working with Hogan:
“I loved working with him, he was great. He was very, very cool, very relaxed, he was warm. I remember working with him, oh it must have been Boston, or maybe it was New York, but I was on with him on Hogan Knows Best because he was kind of making a comeback and it was against us (himself and Shawn Daivari). I remember him coming up behind me, going, “Hey brother,” picking me up. He’s a big dude. He was just awesome to work with.”
On Hogan being reinstated to the WWE Hall of Fame:
“I saw he got reinstated, and I cannot stress how that speaks volumes of Hulk Hogan for who he is as a wrestler, and an entertainer. In WWE, the ratings are dropping, and I feel like they are looking at Hogan again to kinda spike them. That says a lot because he’s been doing this for what 30-40 years now and he’s still a ratings machine. You put him on TV and people are going to watch.”
