After a scathing review of his restaurant where the reviewer said the food was lackluster and the establishment was dirty and ragged for not having been open long, Hulk Hogan is doing all he can to stay in a positive light in the public eye. On Saturday Hogan lashed out against current TNA World Champion Jeff Hardy and former WWE World Champion CM Punk and indicated he would soon be taking part in a new reality series based on his life.
While no details were given about the TV show Hogan took not only Hardy to task but also TNA Wrestling CEO Dixie Carter saying he (Hogan) would prefer to have Bobby Roode as champion. On the recent UK tour champion Jeff Hardy was unable to accompany the rest of the TNA roster due to his felony convictions. In the interview Hogan said, while saying Carter was the boss and he picks his battles ""The (UK) tour plus a champion makes sense; a tour with no champion doesn't make sense."
As for Punk, who made comments indicating that stars of yesteryear had things easier than today's wrestlers, Hogan said "So, does CM Punk have it easier than me? When I was flying 300 days a year, doing double-shots, and there was no Rock and no 'Stone Cold' around, but just me for the first 15 years? During the day, I was flying from New York and stopping in St. Louis, taking a TV station manager out to lunch, and then in the afternoon getting to the building early in another town, like Chicago, and cutting a TV deal before wrestling that night. So, no, I don't think I had it easier than him."
The interview, a six page feature in the current issue of Fighting Spirit Magazine is available here.
