What’s the story?
Hulk Hogan has taken to social media, so as to open up on his relationship with The Ultimate Warrior.
Addressing accusations against Warrior, that his changed persona during his final return to WWE was a ruse, Hogan asserted that Warrior was indeed a changed man.
Besides, Hogan also confirmed that the two of them forgave each other shortly before Warrior’s death.
In case you didn’t know…
Performers such as Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, and The Ultimate Warrior were the top WWE Superstars back in the late 1980s and early ‘90s.
However, Hogan and Warrior weren’t on the best of terms with one another, as the former accused Warrior of unprofessionalism, and not being a good in-ring worker, among other things.
Meanwhile, Warrior lashed out against Hogan, as well as several other contemporaries of his such as, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall, insinuating that Hogan, Nash, Hall and the Hulkster’s backstage entourage were simply out to sabotage The Ultimate Warrior with workplace politics.
The heart of the matter
One ought to note that WWE inducted The Ultimate Warrior into the Hall of Fame in 2014, and Warrior is said to have settled his differences with Hulk Hogan and Vince McMahon in what turned out to be the former’s final days.
Hulk Hogan seemingly addressed the fact that upon his 2014 return to WWE, Warrior and he buried the hatchet, and that the latter was a changed man.
Below is an excerpt from Hogan’s Tweet regarding the same:
“Warrior spoke with a God presence when we talked we said we forgave each other we said we loved each other,I choose to believe his words,next day at Raw we laughed with Patterson and had a blast! Any negative,jaded,evil opinions that his words were not true I refuse to believe HH”
Furthermore, when a fan asked Hogan as to what made the latter question that Warrior forgiving him wasn’t genuine, the Hulkster responded by saying that a person close to Warrior seemingly suggested that the latter’s apology to Hogan wasn’t genuine.
Hogan added that it doesn’t matter, since he & Warrior forgave each other, and had a great time alongside Pat Patterson on the RAW after WrestleMania XXX:
Hulk Hogan presently works as an entrepreneur, and has time and again reiterated that he’s indeed open to returning to the world of professional wrestling.
While Hogan was present at WWE’s recent screening of the Andre The Giant documentary, WWE simply clarified that Hogan isn’t under any contract with the promotion.
It’s great to hear that Hulk Hogan and The Ultimate Warrior truly forgave one another.
Much like the old adage goes, "To err is human, to forgive is divine."
