Hulk Hogan hasn’t had a pretty media light shined on him recently, however now he makes a statement of interest to many wrestling fans and pundits alike. Who was the best wrestler to ever face Hulk Hogan? Roddy Piper? Andre? Macho Man? Ultimate Warrior? Sargent Slaughter? None of the above actually, in his opinion.

Hulk Hogan recently was interviewed by The Star in the United Kingtom to promote his upcoming “Evening with Hulk Hogan” event on November 14th. He was asked who is the best wrestler he has faced over his thirty year career, to which he responded:

“The best I’ve ever grappled was the Rock. This guy had the talent. He had everything. If things went wrong in the ring he knew how to fix things on the spot. Not just an instinct. He had a really good feel for this business. So The Rock, without a doubt was easily the best.”

In other news the WWE has to scramble to find a top babyface for the company now that a few of the head guys are either involved with other ventures or injured.

WWE will be pushing Dean Ambrose into a more prominent position as a top babyface in the company, according to Dave Metlzer on the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio.

Ambrose will join Roman Reigns and Kane in leading the babyfaces while John Cena is out filming a new tv series and Randy Orton recovers from injury over the next several months.

Dean was elevated to main event status earlier this year and challenged Seth Rollins, unsuccessfully for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in a couple of main event pay-per-view matches.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
