Hulk Hogan may be an icon of professional wrestling, but these past few years, his behavior has been tarnishing his legacy.

Hogan originally made his name as a babyface “Real American” before transitioning to the “cool heel” as part of the NWO. His popularity made him powerful and there have been rumors throughout the years that he abused his power to stay on top.

Now, in an interview with the Orlando Sentinel, Hogan himself admits that he kept his top spot in the business by holding down younger talent.

“Once I got in the spot, to keep the spot, that’s where the politics came in,” Hogan told the Sentinel.

 

“Everybody goes, ‘Well Hulk Hogan was a politician.’ Well, thank God I was!” said Hogan. “That’s why I made more money than anybody, that’s why I kept the belt longer, that’s why instead of a five- or six- or 10-year run like the Rock or Stone Cold or different wrestlers, I had a 35-year run on top.”

Despite his 35-year run as a top guy, Hogan is still willing to return to the wrestling business as he still believes he has a place with the WWE.

“This is a total ego trip, but this is what I would love: To be the hood ornament of the WWE, to be the Babe Ruth of the WWE, and to always be around when any of the big stuff is going on,” Hogan said.

“I’d like to be part of the ongoing growth of the wrestling business and be with the WWE the whole time, that’s the only place to be,” said Hogan.

Hogan is expected to make an appearance at the next WWE pay-per-view, the rather controversial Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia.
