• SmackDown Star Says Hulk Hogan Is His Dream Opponent, Reveals What Him & Hogan Talked About Recently
During a recent interview with Gorilla Position, SmackDown Live star Rusev talked about how he wants to be a funny character and be a monster in the ring, his dream opponent & more.
Below are the highlights:
On wanting to be a funny character:
“Every time people are like, ‘oh you should be more serious like this and you’re a monster’… When you look at Kurt Angle, he always did the funny stuff. [Angle] steps in the ring and he’ll kick your ass twice and that’s why I was like, ‘that can be me, I can do fun stuff because that’s what I wanna do.’
At the same time in the ring, I can beat you so hard that you’ll never want to show up again. So that’s what I wanna do and that’s what I’ve been doing and I guess it’s worth it.”
On who’s his dream opponent:
“Hogan. He’s back in the Hall Of Fame. Yeah, Hogan, man he’s the guy I started watching wrestling because of him and I came to America because of him so I could be a professional wrestler so definitely Hogan.
I talked to him a couple weeks ago about some different stories about matches with Warrior and WrestleMania with The Rock in Toronto and yeah. He knows so much and he has so much experience with so many stories to tell.”
