Hogan On Angle & Hardys’ Problems, Returning To The Ring



Hulk Hogan appeared on Busted Open, which airs every Monday and Wednesday on Sirius 92 and XM 207 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. Highlights from the interview are as follows:

On whether he feels pressured to get back in the ring: “You know what it is, brother, it’s not pressure, I want to help. But then when I see myself in the ring, and I see myself on a good day, and I say okay, passable. But when I see myself on a bad day, and I’m trying to swing a chair and my body hurts so bad I can’t even swing it I go man, you shouldn’t be in there. I don’t feel pressure, but I want to help. But I want to help without destroying the product, I want to help without going oh my God, Hogan really sucks. You know, I would really like to do something, you know I don’t know how to find that sweet spot because I do all my vitamins, and drink all the fish oil and do all the stuff that you do when your trying to stay as healthy as you can.

“And then everything is fine and I feel great today, but tomorrow I can come in here and barely be able to get out of the chair and go well what did I do different? So I don’t know what’s going on, I guess its old age, I’m 58 years old, but that’s what’s got me. I can’t determine if I say okay today I’m like to get in the ring and hit you over the head with a baseball bat, or pull your leg, or hit you with a pair of knucks, you know. It’s a great thought, but I just don’t actually know until that moment how I’m gonna feel. It’s the weirdest feeling. So I want to help, I don’t feel pressured to get in the ring but sometimes I get a little sketchy thinking okay is this going to be a good day or a bad day.”

On guys like Matt and Jeff Hardy screwing up: “To see these guys step outside the parameters of what is expected in and out of the ring and screw up, you know? I mean come on. This business is a lifeline for me and for Vince, and for Dixie, and for Eric and for everybody that love this business, and RVD and Cena and everybody. And all of a sudden, you’re in or you’re out. You’re either all the way in the business or your all the way out. And when you screw up and when you don’t care, to me it shows that you don’t have it in your blood. And that’s what kills me. Because the party’s over man, this is business. And for them to step outside the lines and hurt a small upstart company like this, that’s doing a great job, that’s got huge opportunities, that’s where the hair on the back of my neck raises, because it’s not cool.

On the legal troubles of Jeff, Matt, and Kurt Angle: “You know the Jeff Hardy stuff, you know I kind of saw a little pattern and I’m kind of glad he is breaking the cycle. He’s saying he’s gonna break the cycle, and everything he said so far has been true to this point. You know the proof is in his actions in the long run. The Matt Hardy thing came out of nowhere because Matt Hardy, I don’t know him very well. Everytime I saw him and talked to him he was on point, we would talk about the show and what he was going to do in the ring, after the performance he would say did you watch? And everytime I talked to him, he was cool. I had no idea he was taking a walk on the wildside, he caught me way off guard.

“The Kurt Angle thing, I don’t know what to think of it yet. They said he blew, you know, and he wasn’t drinking. I can’t even begin to go there, I’m not going to put Hulk Hogan’s opinion over what the legal system comes up with, because I don’t even know what we are talking about with Kurt. I don’t know what the facts yet, I don’t know what’s going on. You know I talked to his wife and she said he’s a horrible driver. The whole time they were married she wouldn’t even let him drive the kids. He texts when he drives, he’s great in the ring as far as focusing but his people skills are horrible. He’s got two left feet, and it translates into his driving. I’m not making any excuses for him, but I want to know what the facts are before I pass any judgement.”
