Recently, the WWE Universe witnessed a string of WWE Hall of Famers and legends coming back for one night on a special Raw Reunion episode. The episode ended with Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair addressing the fans, followed by Stone Cold Steve Austin sharing beers with the legends.
Austin later announced that he had recorded a podcast with none other than Hulk Hogan. When it comes to the Mount Rushmore of pro-wrestling, fans have always been divided on who sits on the top. Two names that regularly make it to the top of the list are Hogan and Austin. Both of these legends have had incredible careers, and the podcast featuring Hogan didn't disappoint one bit.
Here are 10 incredible backstage tidbits Hogan revealed on the podcast.
#10. Hogan's original career choice
After grinding for a while, Hogan soon became the hottest act in Professional Wrestling at that time. He was the perfect guy to play the part of an American Hero, and Vince McMahon made it a point to utilize him to his fullest potential and help WWE earn millions in the process. But what did Hogan have in mind before deciding to become a pro wrestler?
Hogan stated in the interview that before he was in the business, his goal was to become an accountant. It's baffling to think how different pro wrestling would be today if Hogan would have gone on to become one!
#9. Where did Hogan like to wrestle?
During the 70s and 80s, Hogan wrestled all across the world, appearing in WWE, AWA, NJPW, and various other promotions. Hogan became a major attraction while wrestling in Vince McMahon's WWE, and went on to get involved in the main events of the first 9 WrestleMania shows!
While talking with Austin, Hogan revealed that he preferred wrestling in Japan, as they allowed him to take backdrops and he didn't have to go over matches for hours on end.
