Hulk Hogan on Randy Savage: “it would be cool to induct him”



Excerpt from an interview Hulk Hogan did with Fighting Spirit Magazine

“I’ve heard all these urban legends about Randy doing something to piss Vince off,” said Hogan. “I’ve heard two or three different stories, and I don’t know if any of those are true, but he deserves to be in the Hall of Fame, and I would love to be the one that inducts him. I’ve got a speech for him ready to go. I just think it’s a must that he’s in the Hall of Fame; he was so influential in this business, especially in the WWF, and in my career.

“You know, he’s the only guy we could pass the belt to, and we wouldn’t lose money. You gave the belt to The Ultimate Warrior – I don’t want to drop a bunch of names – and right away the revenue went down. Give the belt to ‘Macho Man’, and things would stay the same, or get better.”

“For me, it would be cool to induct him. We had a rift for about 10 years, and then right before he passed away, I was getting an EKG, when I hear (mimicking Randy’s voice) ‘Yeah, what’s up, brother?’ And I looked over, and he was there, looking great. I said, ‘Hey Mach, how you doing?’ I shook his hand, and introduced him to my wife, Jennifer. He’s like, ‘Hello lovely lady, how ya doing?’ Jennifer said to him, ‘Oh, Mr. Macho, I’ve heard so much about you. You know, we’ve got three or four lawyers at the house today, so we’re gonna cook up. We’d love to have you over.’ But he just went, ‘I don’t dig lawyers, baby, maybe we could start out with a phone call?’

    Honestly, I’d rather it be Ricky Steamboat, Jake Roberts, Ric Flair, or someone else. Yes Hogan had a great feud with Hulk, but if I recall from the old urban legends of yore, Randy disliked Hogan.

  2. Jake Allen says:

    Let Steph do it so she can confirm the myth that Vince blackballed him for sleeping with her

  3. -J- says:

    lol…let his bro “the Genius” Lanny Poffo do it.

  4. Kerry says:

    Actually, Lanny doing it would be more appropriate than anyone else.

  5. StunningSteve says:

    This is the guy who caused Savage to sever ties with TNA just by him being in the company.

  6. Kid Vicious says:

    Do you know what would’ve been really cool? If they had inducted him 10 years back when he was still alive.
