Hulk Hogan is the guest on this week’s “WOOOOO! Nation” podcast with Ric Flair. Hogan and Flair have been close friends for many years and, as noted on the podcast, Hogan has helped Flair with personal situations over the years.
As noted a couple of weeks ago, people that are affiliated with WWE were told to steer clear from Hogan so it’s interesting that Flair went ahead and booked Hogan as his guest. WWE was aware over the weekend that Hogan would be taping an episode for the podcast.
On the podcast Hogan doesn’t really talk about his recent problems. For the most part, he and Flair talk about Hogan’s days as a wrestler, breaking into the business, working for the AWA, WCW, working for Vince McMahon, TNA and more. Hogan praised Dixie Carter for sticking with him when he was taking time off to get several back surgeries.
Hogan did address Bret Hart’s comments about him over the years. Hogan said that he and Bret were supposed to work a program in WCW but Bret got hurt. I think he’s referencing Hart’s concussion that put him out of action in 2000. Hogan added, “I’ve got nothing but love for Bret Hart.”
Hogan ended by saying that, at the end of the day, no one can take away the loyalty from his fans and he would never take that for granted. He said that he doesn’t have a bad thing to say about Vince McMahon or WWE because they had to handle things the way they thought they had to.
