Bruce Prichard On Why Hulk Hogan vs. Randy Savage Worked Well

Bruce Prichard spoke about why the feud between Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage worked so well in an interview with CBS’ In This Corner podcast (via Wrestling Inc). Here are the highlights.

Why the feud worked:

“The beauty of it was that we had time to tell a story, and we had time to let it develop to tell its story to see it slowly as they would in real life. Things don’t happen immediately in life. It takes time for it to seep in; that was the beauty of the story where you started way back almost a year ahead of time and you told a very simplistic story that either some people got and some people didn’t, but when you go back and you show them along the way and you had the viewpoint from two very different people involved in it, then you go, hey, now I get it, now I see it. It was beautiful, and when you have time to tell a story that is best.”

If the hatred was real:

“We will never know. That is the beauty of it as well. It was real to them as well. If you feel it and believe it, that becomes the difference a lot of times with the talent today that wants to ‘play’ a wrestler or ‘play’ a part versus living the part. Actually being what you are portraying.”
