Hulk Hogan has recently revealed who he thinks is the greatest wrestler of all time. The debate has raged for the entire history of the sport who could be considered the greatest of all time.
One man also considered one of the greatest of all time is the 1980s icon Hulk Hogan. The Hulkster is a thirteen time world champion, winning the WWE Championship six times, the WCW Championship 6 times and the IWGP Heavyweight Championship once.
He is known for being the star of wrestling in the 1980s and 1990s in WWE then WCW, and also a Hollywood career which includes hit films like Rocky III and Gremlins 2.
Everyone has their own opinion on who the greatest of all time is, and there is a limitless number of criteria that can be used to determine the best. Is the best the highest drawing wrestler? Then maybe Hulk Hogan or Steve Austin. The best in-ring talent? Bret Hart or Bryan Danielson. Simply the wrestler who connected with the crowd the best? Maybe Dusty Rhodes or Adam Page.
Hulk Hogan has his own opinions on who the best wrestler of all time is, and he made that known whilst hanging out with the legendary wrestler Ric Flair. The two Hall of Famers were seen together recently at a part, where Hogan grabbed a microphone and proclaimed Ric Flair to be the greatest wrestler of all time.
“Well, let me tell you something brother! I want everybody in here, on the one, two, three, to give me a ‘Wooo!’ for the greatest wrestler of all time. One! Two! Three! Wooo! Hey thank you guys for coming out. This is the greatest wrestler of all time, Ric Flair,”
“In honour of the third greatest wrestler ever, ’cause he’s [points at Flair] #1, I’m #2. In honor of the third greatest wrestler of all time, that no good [inaudible] Rattlesnake, Steve Austin. Somebody give me a hell yeah!”
Hulk Hogan named “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair as the greatest wrestler of all time. This was followed by himself at number two, and Stone Cold Steve Austin as the third greatest wrestler of all time.
