Hogan will forever be the face of a generation of
WWE superstars: Triple H - August 2013
WWE World Champion Triple H talks about the impact
of Hulk Hogan in the wrestling industry and the overwhelming
success of The Rock.
Hulk Hogan brings to the industry: I think hes
one of the biggest superstars in the history of this
entire industry. Hulk Hogan will forever be the face
of a generation of WWE superstars. I dont know
that theres a more recognizable guy. Theres
the Rock and theres Hogan, theres Cena
and theres these recognizable characters that
become household names and Hulk Hogan is one of the
biggest of those of all time, a true legend in our
business and no matter what, he always will have that
place in the WWE Universe. Always.
he knew the Rock would get so big: Its
funny, years and years ago I was asked to give a quick
line and somebody threw names at me. When they said
the Rock I said most entertaining guy Ive ever
met. He can morph himself into whatever is going on
at the time. I remember Mick Foley and I walking into
the studio for Saturday Night Live and Mick was saying
I dont if Rocks going to be good at this
comedy stuff because at a certain point in time he
hated doing the comedy stuff in what we did. And we
walked in and he was up on a table pretending he was
this primate guy in this skit and we just started
laughing and Mick was like alright, well I guess thats
off the table now.
just can do anything. He has no fear of putting himself
out there and letting people in and thats phenomenal
and its part of the reason for his success.
Hes also one of the most driven guys I know.
To be on top in the WWE requires a lot of work and
determination. I think that the lessons Rock learned
in the WWE, he carries over and I think he has a work
ethic like theyve never seen before in Hollywood.
He gets that from here."
