Kevin Nash Says Hulk Hogan is the Greatest Worker of All Time

Aug 2, 2021 - by James Walsh

Kevin Nash made an appearance on 83 Weeks to discuss a wide range of topics.

During it, Nash explained why he believes Hulk Hogan is the greatest worker of all time:

“People will always ask me, ‘Who’s the greatest worker of all time?’, and I’ll say, ‘Hulk Hogan.’ They will say, ‘What?’ The number one thing about being a pro wrestler is you have to, in my era, you have to be able to go out there 300 nights minimum a year, and do this. That’s part of the job. The one thing that that I always knew, and I probably worked with Hulk 30-50 times in my life where we’ve been against each other doing something, I knew for a matter of fact, a million percent, I would bet everything I own, that I’m going to come back to the locker room in the exact same shape that I left it. That’s the key to the work. I’ll say it to the day I die, one of the biggest parts of our business that died happened at Hell in the Cell when Mick Foley fell, whatever he fell, 40 feet through that table, because now we took work, and made it a stunt.”

Nash went on to say, “In 2002 or 2003, whenever I had my Hell in the Cell, they came to me with it. I said, ‘Great, if we don’t go out of the cell.’ They looked at me like, ‘Oh, this is going to be sh*t. This will be horrible.’ I said, ‘He’s been running from me for three months. That’s what a cell is for. That’s what a cage is for. The cage is because the heel continues to get away from the babyface, and now he can’t.”

    Big Daddy Cool gets “it”.

    100% agree with Nash. People tend to confuse great “wrestler” with a great “worker”. Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair had the same match for decades and drew millions. You can do 200 moves a night…But at the end of the day, if it doesn’t draw money, it doesn’t matter. People didn’t pay to see Hulk Hogan wrestle. They paid to see Hulk Hogan be Hulk Hogan. That’s a great worker.
