• Hulk Hogan Says nWo Would Murder The Shield
TMZ Sports caught up with WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan to talk about the upcoming nWo reunion.
Hogan was asked what would happen if nWo (in their prime) faced The Shield (Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose).
Below is what the Hulkster said:
“We would murder the bums, brother! We’d kill ’em. We laid the groundwork for taking shortcuts. We laid the ground rules, there’s no substitute for victory.
I used to wrestle with Roman Reigns’ dad. You’ve seen the pictures of me holding Roman Reigns as a baby.
Come on. We taught them almost everything we know.”
