• “I made Hulk Hogan’s whole career” – WWF Veteran
In a recent interview with WrestlingInc, Old School WWF Veteran Virgil claimed that he made Hulk Hogan’s career.
As the “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase’s servant, he was involved in the 1988 storyline that included André The Giant winning the WWF Championship and giving it to DiBiase, which eventually led to the WrestleMania 4 tournament and culminated in the ‘Mega Powers vs. Mega Bucks’ match at SummerSlam 1988.
During their time in World Championship Wrestling, both Hogan and Virgil were in the nWo together from 1996 to 1999.
Here’s what Virgil had to say:
“I think I made Hulk Hogan’s whole career. Ted Turner and I put together the nWo. I got paid all day. I was like a moving reindeer. It was Too Sweet Meatsauce week. Olive Garden gave me a special order with Eric Bischoff because they love me that much.
They put out a restraining order on Eric Bischoff because he followed me to Olive Garden. I guess he wanted a bunch more meatsauce or something. He’s obsessed with me because I’m the Meatsauce King.”
