– Hulk Hogan says he was the first to heap praise on Intercontinental Champion Kevin Owens. The Hulkster feels his look is not as important as his strong “old school” professional wrestling psychology.
“Well, I hate to brag about it, but I’m the first one to point the finger at Kevin Owens,” Hogan said in an interview with Radio Yorkshire promoting An Evening with Hulk Hogan at Sheffield Arena in Sheffield, England this Friday. “I saw him on NXT, like his second match, and saw him just chop and beat and grind and beating his guy down and doing it the old school way and really understanding how to get heat, doing it the old school way and I said, ‘that’s the guy’. I said, ‘that’s the guy. I don’t care if he looks like a wrestler [or] looks like an ice cream salesman. I don’t care. That’s the guy.'”
Hogan also talked about his storied career in professional wrestling, some of his favorite matches, opponents and more, along with discussing his recent WWE status and more. You can check out the interview here.
