Hulk Hogan talks not changing his workout, getting his name, staying in shape, getting nervous, more
As noted earlier, Hulk Hogan represented WWE at the Susan G. Komen Race for The Cure event in Washington D.C. this past weekend. Hogan appeared on FOX 5 in Washington D.C. to talk about the event. Below are some highlights:
* Hogan said that he hits the gym about 5 days a week, and that at "61 years young" he's trying to keep up with the young guys. He noted that staying consistent and making right choices keeps him "on point."
* His favorite memories include his match with Andre the Giant at WrestleMania III and the first WrestleMania.
* He talked about getting his name and noted that he was wrestling as Terry Boulder. He said that he was wrestling in the Southern belt and was on a talk show that Lou Ferrigno was also on. The host said to Hogan, "oh my God, you're bigger than the Hulk." Hogan said that the name stuck and he was billed as Terry "The Hulk" Boulder before Vince McMahon Sr. changed it to just Hulk Hogan.
* He said that he used to get nervous talking to kids, although he's gotten over it. He noted how kids are so honest, and that it was tough for him to get used to the honesty from children. He said he used to get nervous about it, but he's used to it now.
* He hasn't changed his workout regime, and says that he does the exact same workout today that he did 35 years ago.
At the end of the interview, Hogan did a segment with the weatherman on the channel and ripped his shirt off.
