Hogan Trashes Warrior Again, Clarifies Bobby Roode Comments

Hulk Hogan recently spoke to Examiner.com in an attempt to clarify his controversial comments about Bobby Roode “not being ready” to hold the TNA World title, days before Roode was set to headline TNA’s biggest PPV of the year, Bound For Glory. Hogan said that he didn’t think Roode had what was needed as a babyface and needed to go heel to get that extra edge:

“It was my opinion, and it was a simple gut feeling to do what was best for the company I was sitting watching Roode’s parents saying what a great son he is and his wife saying what a great husband he is and his kids saying what a great dad he is. He’s the ultimate good guy. He’s going to win the belt! But, then what? Who does he wrestle? So, I sat back and thought, ‘You guys have just done one of the best old school wrestling angles I’ve ever seen.'”

“[Turning Roode heel] give him that extra spice – then he’ll have everyone to work with, rather than throw him out there and set him up for failure.”

“It was just me trying to take a step back, throwing in my two cents. They didn’t have to do it – I didn’t make anyone do anything. It just makes sense.”

Hulk Hogan also took a few shots at the Ultimate Warrior during an interview with the UK’s Sports Vibe , calling Warrior an “idiot” who was never one of the “boys” and was in the business strictly for the money. Regarding Warrior, Hogan said:

“.. You can’t do business with him, he really never loved this business, some of us have the business in our veins like Ric Flair, Vince McMahon, Macho Man and myself. That’s what we are, we can’t move without this business. I think the Ultimate Warrior came in just to make money and he only lasted a couple of years, then when he left, he tried to do independent things but would screw the promoter’s over.”

“He’s really not what we would call one of the boys. The last time I saw the Ultimate Warrior, he was at my house spending time with my family, having a great time. Then all of a sudden I haven’t seen him for 10-years and I see all this crazy stuff he was putting on Twitter. Someone must of hit him in the head with a brick or something.”

“You just have to ignore him because he’s an idiot and you can’t do business with him. I can just pray for him and feel sorry for him, the guy is messed up, so there isn’t going to be a Twitter wrestling match between me and him because he might not show up or he might do something crazy. I’m into doing positive good things, I don’t need that crap.”
