Hulk Hogan Responds to Recent CM Punk Promo

Hulk Hogan had some words for CM Punk and his promo about Superstars of yesteryear having it easier than him during an interview with Fighting Spirit Magazine.

“CM Punk never had to walk into a dressing room where he wasn’t supposed to be. He never walked into Kansas City, where Harley Race was the champion for 20 years, where Harley had told all of his friends and neighbors that he was the only heavyweight champion, because he was the NWA champion. CM Punk never walked into Kemper Arena and had Harley Race put a gun to his head and say, ‘Get out of my town, kid’.

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.”

    Oh, poor baby, Terry. You had to get up early and sit down on flights for endless hours while travelling. Big whoop. Bring that Kayfabe on!

    Look at Punk he’s an undersized guy in a business of giants, he’s straight edge in a business where you’re looked down on if you don’t drink and his parents never supported him at all. I’m not saying its a harder lifestyle nowadays because its most certainly not but it was harder for Punk!

    But Hogan, you didn’t grow up an angsty teen!

    I still think Punk puts a lot of personality and opinion in his promos, even if there is kayfabe. Nonetheless, I still agree with Punk. Hogan did wrestle during the days of territories, but Punk’s been told for 6 years that he’s “too small” or that he’s “disgraced the title” and whatnot, but still became champ in Chicago and cemented a main event hall-of-fame career.
