Bruno Sammartino appeared on Inside The Ropes on Thursday night where he gave his thoughts on TNA Impact Wrestling star Hulk Hogan, “People get fooled by publicity. Hogan wasn’t a good champion at all. In 1985, Hogan had been champion for a year and a half. Vince asked me to put on the tights because the house was down. He would do a good house the first time, but if he came back the second, or dare the third time, he couldn’t draw. He wasn’t a great performer. It did not work. He would use him more for merchandise and pay per view events. He was not a good for a champion like previous people.”
Bruno is certainly entitled to his opinion but most historians and those of who went to arenas at the time saw a different result. It seems Bruno as great as he was, is one of those that never accept when their time passed someone else came to the top.
