WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan recently spoke with India Today, and he previewed his appearance on WWE RAW Legends Night. In the interview, Hogan explained why he thinks Riddle could be a huge star for the company.
“I’ve been watching him and he’s really got good instincts,” said Hogan. “He’s really got a good aptitude for understanding what needs to be done, you know. It’s all about instincts and timing. His timing is off a little bit, but it’s starting to come each and every week so, I mean, he would be the next one I’d put my money on.”
Hogan famously had similar praise for Kevin Owens a few years ago. If Riddle’s career follows a similar track as that of Owens’ time with the company, Hogan’s prediction could be correct.
“The Hulkster” also discussed WWE RAW Legends Night, and he compared it to WWE WrestleMania.
“Oh man, I’m really excited,” said Hogan. ” I’ve had very exciting moments. I remember going into WrestleMania 1 with goosebumps, not knowing what the heck was going on. I remember being scared to death of Andre the Giant and being afraid of my own shadow not knowing if he was going to break me in half. Then I remember wrestling the Rock and the fans were cheering. It’s kind of one of the crazy WrestleMania moments.
“For me to show up at the ThunderDome after all this time? To have [Ric] Flair and Kurt Angle with me, all my buddies, the Big Show? We’ve even got Beth Phoenix and Torrie Wilson. It’s just the unexpected wrestling moment I didn’t think was going to happen this late in my career. I am just totally pumped for this. I feel like I’m getting ready for WrestleMania or something.”
WWE RAW Legends Night is on January 4, 2021, and several stars from the past, like Hogan, Carlito and Jeff Jarrett, will be appearing on the show.
