“Who Killed WCW,” VICE TV’s new docu-series, has been a huge hit with pro wrestling fans around the world as it tells the story of the unfathomable downfall of World Championship Wrestling. However one major name that won’t be appearing in the series is WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan.

Former WWE writer Brian Gewirtz recently spoke with Peter Rosenberg on a number of topics including how Hogan, who played a major role in WCW when he put the promotion on the map during the time that he debuted the nWo as Hollywood Hogan, will not be a part of the series despite The Rock’s Seven Bucks Productions reaching out to the WWE Hall of Famer.

Gewirtz said, “We did reach out to Hulk. He is not appearing in the documentary to talk. He couldn’t do it. We tried on both sides. It didn’t work out. His POV is pretty much…a lot of people have a lot of opinions on him and talk about him. Some positive, some negative. His POV is definitely represented on the show. Obviously, him and Eric are very close and Eric can speak to a lot of Hogan’s POV at the time, both in terms of signing him, the heel turn, the botched finished with Sting, the match with Goldberg, the Finger Poke of Doom, Bash at the Beach, all of that stuff it pretty well covered. He’s not physically talking on the show, but he’s definitely represented.”
