In the latest edition of the Grilling JR podcast, Jim Ross revealed that Vince McMahon has tried multiple times to recreate that idyllic relationship he had with Hulk Hogan. Jim Ross clarified: "Over the years, Vince McMahon has tried many times to recreate that beautiful relationship he had with Hulk Hogan.
Vince made several gestures to get closer to Hogan, but I don't think he succeeded completely. Let's say that a good balance has been restored between them, but there is no longer the bond of the past." JR also talked about Triple H, who retired this year shortly before WrestleMania 38.
The Game, having undergone a delicate heart surgery, has given up on wanting to fight again: "I'm not sure why, but someone got the word out that HHH wasn't a hard worker. Hunter was a great heel and has grown into a formidable wrestler over time.
My feeling is that a lot of people don't appreciate Paul Levesque's work for political reasons. You can't tell me he's a bad worker. This is gigantic bullshit, I assure you 100%."
Hulk Hogan is counted among the greatest performers of all time, although his reputation has partially cracked over the years.
In addition to being a twelve-time world champion, Hogan also held the WWE Tag Team Championship with Edge and the WCW World Heavyweight Championship. He also won the 1990 and 1991 editions of the Royal Rumble match and holds the record for being world champion for multiple consecutive single years.
After Bruno Sammartino, he is the second wrestler ever by overall number of days as a WWE Champion. The Hulk was one of the pillars of the Stamford federation in the late 1980s and early 1990s, having the ability to entertain fans like few others. His sensational farewell in 1993 ruined his friendship with Vince McMahon.
