Hulk Hogan’s Claim About The Rock is Ridiculous

Hulk Hogan’s recent comment that the The Rock is the best wrestler he has ever been in the ring against should come as no surprise, considering the fact that Hogan has about as much credibility as Jerry Springer.

Hogan’s comment is laughable on its face. There’s nothing wrong with the Rock, other than he was never a good professional wrestler. He was among the best ever on the microphone, which fueled his career as one of the sport’s all time legends. But here’s what Hogan said about The Rock in an interview with UK publication, The Star:

“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.”

Hogan is clearly pandering to the Rock, probably because he was one of the few celebrities to moderately defend Hogan’s recent racist comments.

Thank God for the Rock and his presence in professional wrestling. He’s a tremendous athlete and good for professional wrestling. But he’s nowhere near most of the professional wrestlers Hogan has stepped into the ring with. So many, many, many professional wrestlers had more talent, timing, offense, defense and overall ability and skill to tell a story inside the ring.

Here’s a short list of some of the wrestlers better than the Rock whom Hogan has been in the ring with:

  1. Ric Flair
  2. Randy “Macho Man” Savage
  3. Shawn Michaels
  4. Bret “The Hitman” Hart
  5. Triple H
  6. The Undertaker
  7. Yokozuna
  8. Sting
  9. Randy Orton
  10. Ted DiBiase
  11. Rowdy “Roddy” Piper
  12. Cowboy “Bob” Orton
  13. Bob Backlund
  14. The Iron Sheik
  15. Mr. Wonderful Paul Orndorff
  16. Harley Race
  17. Jake “The Snake” Roberts
  18. Sgt. Slaughter
  19. Greg “The Hammer” Valentine
  20. Kurt Angle

I could go on. And on. And on. And on. And on. And on. And on. And on. And on. And on. And on. And on. And on. And on. And on. . . . .

Give it a rest, Hulk. No one believes you.
