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.
