WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan recently spoke with Sports Illustrated to promote his induction into the Boys & Girls Clubs of America Alumni Hall of Fame. Hogan also talked WWE and how he remains in awe of WWE Champion AJ Styles and his work.
"AJ has turned out to be one heck of a performer, one of the best in the world," said Hogan. "Beyond that, he's just such a good person."
Hogan also praised AJ for what he does outside of the ring, where The Hulkster says AJ is even more phenomenal.
"What AJ does in the ring is phenomenal, and that's why we call him the 'Phenomenal One', but when he's outside the ring, he's even more phenomenal," Hogan said. "It's so cool to see how he takes care of his family and loves his kids. If people saw him outside of when he wrestles, they'd have even more admiration for him."
Regarding his troubles over the past few years, Hogan said the one aspect of his life that has never wavered is the support from his fans.
"So many people are so loyal," Hogan said. "That support has given me my pulse. I've wrestled for four generations of people, but after all these years, I never thought the popularity would still be this big. I'll be 65 in a couple months, and I had no idea there would still be this groundswell of interest. People have stood by me through the good stuff, but also through the controversy. People were loyal and stood behind me even when big corporations made decisions based on their corporate policies. The fans stuck with me. It's been amazing how loyal they have been to me."
