Hulk Hogan Names Three Greatest Wrestlers Of All Time

Hulk Hogan

Hulk Hogan has named who he believes to be the three greatest wrestlers of all time.

The topic of the ‘best of all-time’ is one that has entertained and created debate among fans for generations. While fans of a certain vintage may point towards the likes of Lou Thez, Bruno Sammartino or Danny Hodge, others might look towards Ric Flair, Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels.

Although others would then argue that it’s impossible to exclude The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin and Hulk Hogan. Aside from generational differences, every fan looks for something different when naming their own “greatest.”

While hanging out with Ric Flair, WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan was captured on camera naming his own personal top three. The star, naturally, named Flair as number one, himself as number two and the Texas Rattlesnake Stone Cold Steve Austin at number three.

“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 honor 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!”

Ric Flair currently finds himself wrapped up in a feud with Becky Lynch. Speaking on a recent episode of his podcast, Flair hit out at Lynch for referring to Ronda Rousey as “Ronnie.” For her part Lynch later responded in typical ‘Big Time Becks’ fashion on social media.

Ric Flair’s very public spat with Becky Lynch and WWE stems from their use of the phrase “The Man.” The WWE Hall of Famer believes he owns the trademark and in November said that he would “go back and get” it when he was “legally cleared.”

Despite this, a report later suggested that WWE and Lynch are able to use the moniker, and still sell merchandise which heavily features the phrase.
