WWF Legend Hulk Hogan had an interview with Forbes about his new CBD wellness company, in which he also praised Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and acknowledged him as the top guy, who carries the company these days.

Here’s what The Hulkster had to say:

“I’ve got a soft spot in my heart for Roman, but I think he’s one of the only main event guys that’s keeping the art form alive. He can go out there and wing it. He doesn’t need a writer to tell him what to say.

I can tell by the way he wrestles, he’s not following some choreographed pattern.

He is really good with placement and physicality and knowing where he is at all the time in the ring. And it’s like when I wrestled, I never ever, ever talked about my match.

I would see guys sit in the back room and talk for an hour about a 5-minute match, and I’d go to Andre. I said ‘What are we doing tonight?’, Andre responded ‘Don’t worry’. I said ‘Okay’. That’s how I was raised. And I see that in Roman.

(Back then) I woke up like at 5 o’clock in the morning sleeping in the front yard with a bunch of his Samoan brothers. During that time, they took a picture of me holding Roman Reigns, and he was like 2 or 3 years old.”

Hogan also appeared on ‘The MMA Hour’, where he had the following to say about The Tribal Chief:

“He’s got it figured out. A lot of people wrestle for 20 or 30 years and they don’t ever figure it out. I mean, they’re smart to the business, but they really never figure it out.

He’s figured out as far as placement and timing goes, and that slow, methodical cadence when you’re in the ring.

End of the day, if I was in my prime and I walked in with him, I could draw some major money with him.”

Roman Reigns recently hit 1,000 days as champion, and he’s already up there with the greatest and longest champions in WWE/WWF/WWWF history.

Only ‘The Immortal’ Hulk Hogan (1,474 days), Bob Backlund (2,135 days) and record holder Bruno Sammartino (2,803 days + 1,237 days) are above him on the list of the longest World Title reigns.
