Hulk Hogan is considered by many to be one of the most important personalities in the world of wrestling, but not everyone said they were happy to have worked with him or agreed in the judgment that is given towards the creator of Hulkamania.
In particular, his skills in the ring have often been criticized, as did former WWF champion Sycho Sid, also known as Sid Vicious, who fought a match with Hogan in WrestleMania VIII, known for a final extremely negative.
Speaking to Highspots Wrestling Network, Sycho admitted this deficit of the wrestling legend, as well as clarifying how his work in wrestling was dictated only by the desire to make money and not by passion. Here is an excerpt of his words: "Every night that something from WWF aired, it was something spectacular, but speaking of any WrestleMania night, I didn't already remember going to WrestleMania a year later.
For me it was nothing more than a question of money, I didn't care about the booking, the location and so on. No, I don't want anyone to get mad at me. but I wasn't there as a wrestling fan. I've never watched wrestling, I've never bought a wrestling magazine, it was really all about the money.
Many times I also have to admit that various wrestlers wanted to work with me only and only because they were afraid of being booed, and they knew that working with me would not be like that. When I think about the night of the match with Hulk Hogan, I don't think I'm telling the world at all that it was my favorite night of the year or anything like that.
For me it was a night with a horrible match with Hogan, a really horrible worker."
WWE announces a nostalgic episode of Smackdown!
Over the years, WWE has accustomed us to staging several important weekly episodes of its most popular shows, dedicated to the Superstars of the past or in any case to an idea and a type of wrestling that is now past.
The last episode of this type, which WWE wanted to stage from the ThunderDome, was the famous Raw Legends of January, with which WWE also wanted to stage the beginning of the challenge titled between Bill Goldberg and Drew McIntyre, when the Scotsman was still WWE Champion.
Apparently, this time Smackdown would be the brand that will return to take a dip in the past, given that WWE wanted to make an unclear but still very interesting announcement for next week and therefore for the next episode of the company's blue flag show.
. With a press release entrusted to an image during tonight's Friday Night Smackdown episode, where the most anticipated event was the main event between Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns, valid for the maximum title of the show, with Reigns obviously beating his opponent, getting him banned from Smackdown, WWE has announced that next Friday there will be an edition of the show that will return to the past.
At the moment no further details have been given regarding this special episode, nor have special appearances been announced for the evening, such as legends or other athletes, who have not been seen in the blue rings for some time.
The only thing that has been discussed since the very first minutes after the announcement, is that WWE could finally bring back the famous giant fist that dominated the titantron, at the entrance of the ramp leading to the ring.
For several years, many WWE fans have been asking the company to re-install the piece of scenography in that of Smackdown, both to better characterize Smackdown, and to return with the mind to the fantastic, most prosperous periods of the blue show, such as that of the beginning 2000s.
