• “Think about what Hulk Hogan did in his matches” – Former WCW World Champion To AEW Wrestlers
In a recent Owen Hart Tournament match on AEW Dynamite, Jeff Hardy defeated Darby Allin in a match that involved a lot of crazy, high-risk moves.
During a recent interview with SK Wrestling, former WCW World Heavyweight Champion Vince Russo talked about how these wrestlers need to start wrestling like 2-time WWE Hall Of Famer Hulk Hogan, who drew the most money in the history of Professional Wrestling.
Below is what Russo said:
“Everything makes sense when you get down to logic. It (high-risk moves) is all illogical. All you have to look at is when you think off the top of your head, who made the most money in the history of this business? With Rock and Austin and all those guys, 99 percent of people are still gonna think Hogan. Think about what Hogan did in his matches, bro!
Seriously, think about the money this guy made. Think about, to this day, everybody knows who he is. Think about the commercials, the endorsements, the movies, everything he’s had, and think of his match.
All you gotta do is always go back to logic. It just kills every argument that there is.”
