Bob Backlund Says Hulk Hogan Didnt Meet The Standards To Be WWE Champion
November 01, 2015 (00:45) [ Indexed from Wrestling-Edge
WWE Hall of Famer Bob Backlund recently appeared on the Two Man Power Trip podcast to discuss various topics. Here are the highlights.
Thoughts on Hulk Hogan:
I thought that he didn't meet the standards and I know Bruno would have thought if I had been doing all that goofy stuff he was doing he wouldn't have liked me being champion and I'm sure that Bruno feels the same way. He (Hulk) didn't meet the standards outside the ring to be able to represent the WWF. Did the WWE fire him recently? Because, I would have fired him thirty years ago. He was saying one thing and doing another.
Being asked to turn heel by Vince McMahon Jr. in 1984:
I said no. I said no because I had a daughter that was six years old at the time and I didn't want to have her have problems in school. I've heard a lot from the Savoldi's. Mario Savoldi said that they had a lot of problems when his Dad was a bad guy and I didn't want to do the same thing to our daughter and also I sponsored Bob Backlund's kids tournaments and I made a lot of promises to kids that I wasn't going to be doing this and that and would be doing good things they could be proud of and I didn't want to let them down either.
The 1992 return and the plans to finally turn heel:
I went in there to do the "All American Boy" again. But it was also the time that I said I wanted to be bad now. I wanted to be bad because the good guys were lying, cheating and swearing. Let me be bad by being good and I became a bad guy by being a good person.

Kevin Nash Believes He Has One More WWE Run In Him
October 31, 2015 (14:30) [ Indexed from Wrestling-Edge
WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash recently spoke with Sports Illustrated's Extra Mustard site to discuss The Undertaker and if he has one more run in him. Here are the highlights.
On one more WWE run:
"I have one more run. I'm started to get things fixed. I'm getting my shoulder fixed, I'm getting my neck fixed. I miss it, so never say never."
On still being amazed by The Undertaker:
"There's a reason why, right now, Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson are out touring. People want the drama. When guys are kicking out of 450-f------ moonsaults on one-and-a-half, what's the false finish? There are so few storytellers left, but 'Taker can go out there and tell a story."

Hulk Hogan Says WWE Shouldve Suspended Him Instead Of Firing Him
October 28, 2015 (18:15) [ Indexed from Wrestling-Edge
During his interview with BANG Showbiz to promote his upcoming "Evening with Hulk Hogan" event in the UK on November 14th, Hogan commented on WWE firing him earlier this year after his leaked racist rant was released to the public.
"It was business," Hogan said, via TV3.ie. "I understand they're a public company - and with a political correctness vibe in the air, I understand why they've removed all mentions of me. I don't think they're right, the WWE knows me better than anybody and they know I'm not racist. So I wish they had taken a different choice of action, such as suspension."
"This whole racist rant or these comments - not to make light of them - but the people who have been supportive of me look at them more like just a mess-up, or a bad day and they know that's not me.

President Of Gawker Expects To Lose The Hulk Hogan Sex Tape Trial
October 27, 2015 (21:30) [ Indexed from Wrestling-Edge
The Hulk Hogan - Gawker lawsuit stems from Gawker.com posting clips of a stolen sex tape featuring Hogan in October of 2012. Hogan is attempting to get $100 million from the company.
Heather Dietrick, Gawkers President, and General Counsel, stated to Capital New York that she expects to lose this case.
"Its probably difficult to win the case entirely, outright, knowing the jury that were facing, but its possible. More likely than not, we end up with a really small judgment that we can easily carry, and we appeal that," Dietrick said during a Gawker staff meeting held on Thursday.
Dietrick would continue, Its quite possible that Hogan just gets a very small judgment against us, and then we have to make the decision: do we appeal that and incur further fees to vindicate the First Amendment rights that we know were on the right side of, or do we simply say, OK this very small judgment is a win and makes it very difficult for Hulk Hogan, whos spent a lot of time on pursuing this case and could walk away with something very small[, to keep the lawsuit going].
The trial of this case will be held in March of 2016.
