WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley published the following on his Facebook this week:
WHY MICK LIKES HULK
Yes, I like Hulk Hogan – and here’s why. With each passing year, I think I gain a better perspective on what’s really important in life. There was a time – a period of many years – where Hulk’s name would bring up some negative feelings for me. He was the guy who made far more than I did with a style that was the antithesis of mine.
But for the past several years, whenever I see Hulk Hogan, all I can think of are the words Shane Douglas shared with me about Hulk Hogan and the kindness and warmth with which he showered the kids facing life-threatening challenges, who seemed to find strength and inspiration in Hulk’s larger than life physique and personality. I’ll never forget those words Shane told me, “Those kids would just be beaming.”
Those words are all I think of when I see Hogan, People can take issue with his wrestling style…as they often do with mine. But, when it’s all said and done, Hulk Hogan used that oversized personality, and really big heart to ease so much suffering that he saw around him..
In the bigger picture, does anything else really matter?
