Peter Rosenberg of Hot 97 FM is featuring an interview with Hulk Hogan talking about his return to TNA tonight at the Impact tapings in Fayetteville, NC and why he wasn’t a fan of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson trashing John Cena in his return promo to WWE two weeks ago.
“That is one of the reasons me and Vince McMahon don’t get along because we disagree on wrestling theory. He’s a genius. He has done a great job keeping the business alive and keeping it rolling.
(Peter Rosenberg asks Hogan if there was something Hogan didn’t like about Rock’s return).
“Yeah, yeah. There is certain ways to do things. You know, for The Rock to come out and say, we’ve gone from Austin 3:16 to The People’s Champion to all of a sudden, you can’t see me (in whiny voice). They spent so much time building John Cena up. If it was me I would have said, from the Austin era to The People’s Champion era to John Cena. And I just gotta know in my heart whose the better man. There is a way to really build somebody up. You know.
All of a sudden in three or four seconds he had the whole arena screaming that Cena sucks. Sometimes I just don’t understand the philosophy because John Cena is going to be there all the time. And even though The Rock said he was back, he was only back for one day. He isn’t going to be there wrestling every single week like John Cena is, you know, holding it down and keeping it real. All that stuff is scripted, they have Stephanie McMahon and writers telling The Rock exactly what to say. I just didn’t understand why they wanted to destroy Cena so quickly.”
