In an interivew with NOLA.com to promote the WrestleMania 30 pay-per-view, WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan commented on his return to the company, his health and more.
Highlights from the interview are below:
On his WWE return: “When I came around the corner and the people saw me (the first night), it felt like I was standing behind a 747 and all the engines were firing, it was so much energy and the people were so loud I went “wow, it still works”. Second appearance was better, the crowd was electic and then this last one in Brooklyn, I’m definitely cool now, there’s nothing to worry about, I’m okay.”
On why he continues to use the “brother”: “It kind of started after WrestleMania 1. As soon as we became mainstream, I would fly into cities and do newspapers and go to radio stations and just meet kids in hospitals. Sometimes, I was meeting up to 100 to 200 people a day, if you meet 10 people a day it’s hard to remember everyone’s name, so as I was meeting a couple of hundred people a day, the word brother just stuck because I couldn’t remember everybody’s names.”
On his health: “Everything’s good, my body kind of went through some drama with back surgery and stuff, but I’m pretty much patched up and ready to go. I feel like I got a shot in the arm when I came back to the WWE, so, I’m all charged up with gas and ready to rumble.”
