Seth Rollins cast a huge shadow over Hulk Hogan before his second WWE Hall of Fame induction with the nWo tonight. Vince McMahon’s bold “warning” to Hulk Hogan has been leaked.
Rollins told the Complex Sports Podcast on Apple Podcasts: “If you just do what they’ve done in WWE, you’ll probably have to go. [John] Dinner, ”Rollins said. “I think Cena. God, it really is between Rock and Stone Cold. I’m going to have to say Stone Cold on that. Hogan probably and then probably [Bruno] Sammartino. Rock is a fair argument, but I’d say Steve’s impact on WWE is greater than Rock’s, especially during his time here because Rock had a pretty short career. He really was at the top for not long, and then he went overboard and is now the biggest movie star in the business.
“So I don’t take anything away from Dwayne, from DJ, from my boy, but Austin was a fan favorite in the late 90’s and it really ushered in the Age of Attitude, I would say, more than anyone else. And Rock was a big part of the Attitude Era deep down, but it wasn’t necessarily the catalyst like Steve was. Steve was the catalyst for business to be as good as it was, and he was the guy who was selling stadiums and Austin 3:16 jerseys and all that. So yeah, that’s a tough question. “
Rollins hinted that Hulk Hogan is not a good human being, despite being nice to him backstage.
“Shawn is my favorite. Shawn is my favorite wrestler of all time, but we are talking about contributions to WWE and what they have meant to the business, and look, if it were up to me, in that situation, I would probably take Hogan away. But then again, if we’re just talking about the kind of human being you are, but we’re talking about your contributions as a fighter to the company, okay, Hogan was responsible for everything that happened after the late 80s. “. Wrestling inc transcribed Rollins’s comments.
