The Immortal Hulk Hogan had some very special praise for WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns – saying the Samoan Dynasty peaked with The Rock, but that the Tribal Chief is taking it to a whole other level!
Ahead of a very special ‘Legends Night’ edition of the show – where Hogan joins over 20 iconic names such as Ric Flair, Kurt Angle, Beth Phoenix and Torrie Wilson among others – the Hulkster spoke with WWE UK, and reminisced about Afa and Sika, the Wild Samoans, and how they kept him on track.
“Romans Reigns’ father Sika and his partner Afa, they pretty much put me on track when I was lost. I mean, my first run in WWE, I left Florida and we met up and drove to the first TV and when we were up there they had been in the business quite a while so they groomed me and they helped me and kept me from making too many mistakes when you’re first in the business.
“I’ve got so much respect for the Samoan Dynasty, and to understand how it peaked with The Rock, I see Roman Reigns taking it to a whole other level now. He’s solid, he’s consistent, he’s got the look and there are no holes in his work… he’s really, really spot on. “
When speaking about what the fans can expect from Legends Night, Hulkster said he didn’t even know! But that he is looking forward to reminiscing with friends again.
“Well, the fans should tune-in because you never know what to expect. I don’t even know what to expect. I’m going there just to have a great time, reminisce with friends, but when you’re talking about having Flair and Kurt Angle there, Big Show, Carlito… anything is possible. We could end up in the ring, brother. We could end up taking over the whole WWE in one given night. You don’t know what’s going to happen. That’s why I’m so excited.”
