WWE Hall Of Famer was interviewed on “Stories with Brisco and Bradshaw.” Hart was on to talk about his days in Memphis, his days with The Gentrys, Elvis Presley’s pro wrestling fandom, stories from his time in WWE and more.
Hart talked about his friendship with Hulk Hogan in WWF:
“Well, I originally met him in Memphis. I didn’t know him that well. Then we met back in New York. He said, ‘I thought you were coming in to manage me.’ I said, ‘No. I’m coming in as a heel manager.’ I had King Kong Bundy, who I had in Memphis, and Jim Neidhart. Hulk and I didn’t travel a lot together because of the babyface/heel, but we bonded. I went to his house and did the little parties with him and helped set him up. Then we cut a wrestling album together, The Wrestling Boot Band. We always bonded doing stuff. Then he would take me along the trips that he would go on. He would say, ‘I want Jimmy Hart to be with me for this’, because he knew I didn’t drink, do drugs, or be around any of that stuff. With Hulk, we would always sit and talk about a certain thing. What do you think about whatever, and then try to make it better.”
Hart was asked how Hulk is doing now:
“Well, he’s doing a lot better. Still, after 12 back surgeries, hips, and knees, he’s doing so much better. He’s been taking this therapy every week and it’s been really improving him more and more so he can get up and get about pretty good now. He still looks good. He always has the hair and has the tan. His upper body is unbelievable. He always looks the part. He can still do an interview at the drop of a hat. He knows what to say and when to say it. He is such a magnet. People love him no matter where we go. It’s crazy.”
Jimmy Hart was asked his Mount Rushmore of wrestler’s musical entrances:
“Of the top of my head. It would have to be, I look at people who drew the most money, where their entrance music was a part of it. The Undertaker would have to be on there because even though it’s simple, you still have to go with that. You have to go with Triple H. He drew a heck of a lot of money, and I love that song that he came out to the ring to. I thought that was great. Of course, drawing the most money too, I always think about Hulk Hogan with ‘Real American.’ That drew a heck of a lot of money. If I could put one of my own there, it would have to be ‘Sexy Boy’ for Shawn Michaels. I loved them all, but if the fans let me put one on there, it’s Shawn Michaels.”
