• Hulk Hogan Comments On His Feud With WWF Legend Not Working Out Well In WCW
During a recent appearance on Apter Chat, WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan talked about a lot of interesting things.
One of these things was Hogan’s feud with Old School WWF Legend Bret “Hitman” Hart not working out well in WCW.
Below is what the Hulkster said:
“We tried. I mean, we did everything. We put the belt on him. I put him over. I wrestled him a bunch of times. It’s just you’re in the ring with somebody and I know Bret wasn’t in the best physical shape back then. I think he’s coming off that stroke or something. I’m not exactly sure what happened. He fell off his bicycle or something.
Maybe I’ve got my time frames confused. I can’t remember. It’s been so long. All I know is Bret came in, paid him a ton of money, all smiles, hugs, kisses, the whole thing, put him over, did jobs for him, put the belt on him.
I don’t know what else we could have done. I don’t know bro. I tap out on that one.”
