WWE Hall Of Famer The Godfather has given his candid thoughts on wrestling legend Hulk Hogan and says The Hulkster is no friend of his.
The Godfather is best known for his run as WWE’s resident pimp from the Attitude Era but his own WWE journey began at the beginning of the nineties as the mysterious Papa Shango.
As Papa Shango, the real-life Charles Wright would tangle with Ultimate Warrior and memorably with Hulk Hogan at the end of WrestleMania 8 when Hogan had headlined the event with Sid. Being part of a main event angle on The Grandest Stage Of Them All however was dwarfed by what was going on in Wright’s real life as he explained on the Midnight Hustle Podcast. The Godfather didn’t go into detail about why but also chose to make it clear that Hulk Hogan is no friend of his:
“I was going through a bad divorce at that time, so Hogan, Warrior, Sid… that sh*t didn’t mean anything to me. I mean, nothing. I didn’t care about Hogan, bro. He wasn’t no friend of mine. Still isn’t, you know. It doesn’t even matter, doesn’t even matter. He’s not the good guy people think he is, and I’ll let it go at that.”
The main event between Sid and Hogan resulted in a disqualification win for The Hulkster after Sid’s manager Harvey Wippleman go involved. The story has often been repeated over the years that Papa Shago missed his queue to interfere in the match and cause the disqualification himself but The Godfather maintains he made his way to the ring exactly when he was told to:
“They had nobody else with heat on them so I kind of got thrown to the dogs, but that’s business, bro. I’m a businessman. It is what it is. The thing on being late, they just sent me late. I never even knew I was late. I just knew when they sent me I was supposed to go.”
The Godfather also revealed what The Undertaker recently told him in regards to how WWE Chairman Vince McMahon feels about him.
