Source: SportsVibe.co.ukAs noted earlier, Hulk Hogan did an interview with Sports Vibe. Here are some more highlights from the interview.
Comparisons with WCW and TNA: "They're similar, one of the things is that it's a slower burn here because when Eric Bishoff and I came in, the original thought process was if we had a great idea like putting AJ Styles and Ric Flair together or putting the belt on Robert Roode we could move like WCW, we thought things would happen a lot quicker.
"Once we got here, and no disrespect intended, there is a chain of command. There is a check and balance system so instead of the company getting hot-shotted with a great Hulk Hogan idea, the check and balance system is in place to make sure everything moves along at the right pace and that we don't do something too big, too fast that we may not be able to follow up with.
"There are a lot of safety precautions in place and now that I've learned the system, I'm trying to work through it gracefully, but still be pushy because I want things to happen fast."
Similarities and differences between Dixie Carter and Vince McMahon: "When I worked with Vince McMahon, it was more of an outlaw situation at the time. I would call Vince up at 4 o'clock in the morning saying 'I've got to drop the belt to Macho Man because that's what I feel' and Vince would go 'okay.'
"Basically for the first twelve years it was me and Vince McMahon running the WWF. I lived in Stamford, Connecticut, just a couple of blocks away from Vince's house and we worked out every day together and we rode motorcycles everyday together and we were together everyday and made all the decisions.
"With TNA if I say I want to drop the belt tomorrow, everyone will say it's a great idea but maybe it will happen or maybe it won't, or maybe it'll happen in six months, so that's the difference.
"But things aren't like what they use to be. It's a new era and a new age and I don't have the luxury of lacing the boots up and doing it myself and that's what I'm used to, doing it myself, but I'm getting used to taking a back seat a little bit."
