• SmackDown Star Says Hulk Hogan Will Return To WWE One More Time
During a recent appearance on Opie Radio, Old School WWF Veteran & current SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon talked about two huge names in the Professional Wrestling business – Hulk Hogan & The Rock.
Below are the highlights:
On if they knew The Rock was gonna be a huge star when he arrived in the WWF:
“No, but he had IT. When he first started, we gave him a big push due to his lineage…When we presented him as Rocky Maivia, people just sh*t all over it. They’re like ‘Die Rocky Die.’ People just puked all over it.”
On The Rock joining The Nation Of Domination:
“There, Rock started getting his voice. He cut his hair, got a little more cleaned up. Then that’s when the gift of gab started happening. He got to speak a little bit more and we could see the star just rising from there.
Big credit to Dwayne specifically because everything that happens in WWE is a collaboration. You have to have the “IT” factor, but you also have to put in your own thought and time to what that character is.”
On Hulk Hogan possibly returning to WWE:
“What else you got? He’s an icon, that’s for sure. He’ll be back, I mean I grew up with Hulk, he’s iconic.
I’m not going to press stuff but I would assume he’ll come back one more time. We could talk about Trump, something less controversial.”
