The Miami Herald recently interviewed WWE Legend Hulk Hogan to discuss his induction into The Boys and Girls Clubs of America Hall of Fame in San Diego, California. During the interview, Hogan also discussed a potential return to the WWE, the nWo changing the wrestling business, Ronda Rousey, and more. Below are the highlights from the interview:
On Ronda Rousey and her connection to the late Roddy “Rowdy” Piper: “I think it was a really, really cool situation that Ronda went to Piper first, out of respect, and asked Roddy, if she could use his name. Piper was grateful that she was asking, and he was just overwhelmed that she would want to represent it on that level.”
On a possible WWE return: “Well, never say never. That would be a dream come true for me to go back home. I started many, many years ago in 1977, 78 for Vince McMahon Sr., and I’ve been back-and-forth several times. So I’d like to go back one last time and stay there and never leave home again.”
On the nWo changing the pro wrestling business: “The nWo — Hogan, Hall and Nash — kind of like changed wrestling and kind of like made a pivot, where everybody used to cheer for the good guys, and we kind of made it cool to cheer for the bad guys. So, the way we changed wrestling’s history and the course of the train of thought that the fans have now, I think is attributed a lot to the nWo’s reign of terror. I think the nWo — definitely the three original founding members — deserves a spot in the WWE Hall of Fame.”
