Hulk Hogan Responds to Recent CM Punk Promo

Posted by Matt Boone February 24, 2013 12 Comments

Hulk Hogan had some words for CM Punk and his promo about Superstars of yesteryear having it easier than him during an interview with Fighting Spirit Magazine.

“CM Punk never had to walk into a dressing room where he wasn’t supposed to be. He never walked into Kansas City, where Harley Race was the champion for 20 years, where Harley had told all of his friends and neighbors that he was the only heavyweight champion, because he was the NWA champion. CM Punk never walked into Kemper Arena and had Harley Race put a gun to his head and say, ‘Get out of my town, kid’.

So, does CM Punk have it easier than me? When I was flying 300 days a year, doing double-shots, and there was no Rock and no ‘Stone Cold’ around, but just me for the first 15 years? During the day, I was flying from New York and stopping in St. Louis, taking a TV station manager out to lunch, and then in the afternoon getting to the building early in another town, like Chicago, and cutting a TV deal before wrestling that night. So, no, I don’t think I had it easier than him.”

      he forgot the steroids in the morning, noon, and night. i guess thats why he didnt include weight lifting/training either

      He also fails to mention how he played politics throughout his career to get him and all his friends in the spotlight. He also doesn’t say how Punk was never supposed to be in a WWE locker room because he was seen as too small. Which made Punk work extra hard to get what he has now.

      I like the “there was no rock,no stonecold was just me for the first 15 years” so i guess macho man,ricky the dragon steambouat,ric flair,ultimate warrior,sting were just figments of our imagination?

      I’d like to hear Harley Race’s story on that. I think the gun pointed at Hogan was a far fetched lie. Just like how Doink said “Randy hated Hulk. Hulk’s story about Randy and him making amends is bulls***.” I think this story about Harley Race pointing a gun at him is crap, too. With these two stories, I think Hogan will say anything to make himself look good.

      PS: He is a good giving tree, though. But I wouldn’t recommend seeing his cousin across the field “who is another giving tree” – that’s another lie from Hogan’s mouth. I saw it on Robot Chicken! lol!

      I can’t blame Hogan for holding on to whatever bit of publicity he can get. Even if it’s just responding to an obviously scripted promo to draw heat. The man is less and less relevant every day that goes by.

      If Hogan is so irrelvent why yall comment? Hogan IS STILL MORE FAMOUS THAN CM PUNK IN 2013. And he’s right above all. I’m a wrestling historian, not only did wrestlers make less in the 60s, 70s, 80s, but they where paid much less. Look at how many wrestlers have gave there life that wrestled in the 80s, Curt Henning, Rick Rude, Big Bossman, many more, they where on the road 315 days out the year. Hogan can say whatever he wants about Punk, because Punk keeps his name in his mouth on Raw, you simple minded WWE fans, are the reason the wwe makes so much money, because yall have no idea about wrestling history, cause if any of you morans did, yall wouldnt even of commented. Because, at the end of the day duh he’s right. News flash WWE ikes, when Hogan was champion, did yall know, WRESTLEMANIA, SUMMERSLAM, SURVIVOR SERIES, AND ROYAL RUMBLE WAS CREATED, HE CAN SAY ANYTHING HE WANTS WHEN THEY STILL MENTION HIM ON RAW.
