Hulk Hogan Says He’s Only Used Creative Control Once, Talks Ultimate Warrior

Hulk Hogan spoke to The Sun on a number of topics including creative control, Ultimate Warrior, not losing to Shawn Michaels in 2005, the Montreal Screwjob and more.

Regarding Hogan’s use of creative control dating back to his time with World Championship Wrestling, he said, “People say ‘Hogan, you have this creative control clause?’ and I say ‘yeah, but the only time I’ve ever exercised it in 30 years is when Vince Russo screwed me’. And it didn’t even help then! I got screwed and couldn’t do anything about it!

“Nowadays, we have a working relationship. I would have bet my bottom dollar that we wouldn’t work together again. There was a point in time where if I was to go to TNA it was him or me. The truth is Eric Bischoff sold me on it. Eric had met with Vince and explained to me how things were different and we should sit down to talk.”

In June, Ultimate Warrior released a hate-filled attack against Hogan, claiming the wrestling icon is a cocaine-abusing “dope head” who once tried to get Warrior to have sex with his wife. Hogan says of his rival, “What is the Warrior doing? What has this guy been saying? I’ve never approached him for sex. I can’t speak for my ex-wife!

“We had a guest house, he stayed in it. We worked in my gym, he hung out in the pool all day with my kids, he was super nice to family. There was nothing but respect.

“All the insane, crazy stuff he is saying is nuts. Now even the most hardcore Warrior fans know he’s a goof. His cover’s gone now, he’s so far out of line everybody just knows he is an idiot. He has no credibility. It’s sad.”

The 45-minute audio interview with additional quotes concerning Michaels and the Montreal Screwjob is available here.

    Are you still botching moves???????

  • Stevie P

    Hogan used creative control to not play bass for Metallica.

  • Max


    Randy has no creative clause, so its not him who buries other wrestlers but management.

  • XSF

    Kamala may not have been much of a wrestler, but he’s certainly a pretty cool guy from my experience. I don’t see the need to rag on him because of a comment some dude with a troll username makes.

    @ Kamala’s foot

    Don’t hate on Bulldog. Davey Boy has more credibility than the fat star-painted carcass you got sawed off of

  • Bill

    Hogan’s used creative control once? Yeah, & Randy Orton has only buried once.

  • Stevie P

    What a load of crap. He used it as early as 1994 when he was supposed to drop the title to Flair but didn’t want to.

    ^Stop sucking off Hogan and Bitchoff^

    Bulldog’s dead body has more crediblity than Hogan.

  • Jason

    Hogan is the man and I trust him more then any of you nuts thats for sure.

  • Max

    true, but Warrior has lost even more credibility than he had. He has a debt in credibility.

  • Jon

    Are you kidding me?!?! Hulk Hogan has lost all his credibility. He’s an absolute self absorbed nut!

  • Max

    well he has more credibility than warrior thats for sure.

  • Ray

    And -you- have any credibility, Hulky? LOL.
