Former WWE star Paul Roma recently opened up on WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan, who is one of the biggest names in pro wrestling. He has multiple accolades to his name during his legendary career. ‘The Hulkster’ has been a part of many iconic moments. However, the backstage stories about the legend indicate that his ego may have gotten in the way of other performers reaching the same heights as him.
Paul Roma talks about Hulk Hogan
Roma had a stint with WWE from 1984 to 1991. Speaking on Cheap Heat Productions, the former WWE star shared his honest thoughts regarding Hogan’s career:
“He can’t wrestle,” Roma said. “All joking aside, he can’t wrestle. He was a great showman, they put a lot of money behind him and they made it work, right? Hogan started believing his own b*****it, you know what I mean? ‘Hey, I’m really beating Andre The Giant.’ No, you’re not. No, you’re not. ‘Hey guy, hit me with your finish, I’m gonna kick out of it,’ of course you are. You kick out of everybody’s finish, that’s what you do, but at the end of the day, you’re just a punk ass.”
Hogan’s rivalry against The Iron Sheik inside and outside the ring remains to be one of the greatest chapters of the industry. Sheik never shies away from taking shots at ‘The Hulkster.’
The Iron Sheik has been quite vocal about his aversion for Hulk Hogan behind the scenes, often claiming that the Hulkster’s ego is the primary reason for it. Responding to a recent tweet inquiring about everyone’s greatest sporting achievements, the WWE Hall of Famer was quick to answer with a harsh statement:
“BEATING THE F*** OUT OF THAT NO GOOD DUMB SON OF A B**CH HULK HOGAN”, tweeted The Iron Sheik.
Sheik previously called Hogan a racist after his 2015 n-word remarks surfaced, writing, “WHO WANT TO SEE THE LEGEND REPLACE THE HIWDY DOODY HULK HOGAN IN THE @WWEToughEnough GIVE ME HELL YEAH.”
