After having a run with WCW which lasted 2 years, Sid Vicious joined WWE back in May 1991 but left within a year. While he later returned to the company and became the World Champion too, fans still wonder why Vicious left WWE abruptly during his first run.
During his recent interview with Hannibal TV Sid talked about his first stint with the company and claimed that Hulk Hogan was the reason why he left WWE.
According to him, Hogan got booed by the fans during the 1992 Royal Rumble and he started complaining to Vince McMahon about it. This caused the former Champion to be fed up with the situation and he decided to leave the company:
“He [Hogan] is putting on like a woman, screaming at Vince like Vince planned for him to get booed, I went to Vince’s office and I said, ‘Vince, I can’t work in a place where a grown man acts like this.’ I said, ‘I’m going home, I’m done.'”
It’s worth noting here that apart from WWE Sid won many championships in other promotions as well, including a couple of World titles in WCW.
