Hulk Hogan Speaks Out - Steve Austin, TNA's Talent, Savage
Source: ESPNHulk Hogan recently spoke with ESPN.com. Here are the highlights:
On Randy Savage: "Out of all the guys who have died, that one hit me the hardest. I've known a lot of guys, I've walked into hotel rooms where there have been bad situations, but that one was a tough one."
On Wrestling Steve Austin: "If there is that one last huge match that really, really meant something to the fans, that would have to be against 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin. I can see him already making appearances back on TV and he's already starting to get full of himself," Hogan said. "I heard him say for a while that his back and his neck were too messed up to wrestle, but from I've been seeing lately, I think he's getting geared up to do something and I'd like to be a part of it."
On TNA's Talent: "I've really tried to be optimistic when looking at the talent that is there, and I've already tried to give the football to a couple of guys who are there and they are just so off into that: 'TNA Wrestling, this is TNA Wrestling, I have a five star match every week.' But that's not the big picture."
On Matt Morgan: "I think the one guy I really need to focus on is Matt Morgan. There are a couple of things that need to be fixed, and one of the main things is his interviews. When Scott Steiner looks at you and calls you a punk and says you look like a tiny turd in a toilet bowl, you need to comeback and say something about how you can look over the top of Steiner's head. Instead he's out there talking about how he respects Steiner as an athlete. His whole rap needs to change. I think if we sit down and really dial Matt Morgan in, he can be somebody who can really turn things around and lead Impact Wrestling to the promised land."
