WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan recently spoke with Ariel Helwani on the MMA Hour on a variety of topics such as how Vince McMahon would be working 24/7 and how Vince just never stopped as well as how Vince McMahon would be banging on his door at 3AM asking him to work out and how it just drove him crazy.
Hulk Hogan said:
“Yes and no. Business wise, the amount of money it generated for him, and where it’s put him in this catbird position, up on this financial pedestal, I understand the security of it. Shocked that he would not be 24/7 involved with the business. That guy never stopped. It was seven days a week. I’d go to Monday Night Raw, and we’d have a post-production meeting at one o’clock in the morning after the show was over. I’d sneak back to my hotel, he’d be banging on my door at 2:30, 3:00, ‘Come on, monster. Let’s go work out.’ Used to drive me crazy. Then he’d sleep for four hours and have another 20-hour day. It was like that every day.”
Hulk Hogan also spoke about how Vince McMahon had his own big extended G4 airplane, which Hogan would call the slave ship as well as how he was surprised that McMahon would walk away from a lifestyle such as that because Vince enjoyed the luxurious lifestyle.
Hulk Hogan said:
“His plane, he had a big extended G4, I used to call it the slave ship. He talked me into going on it and flying to Monday Night Raw, then he’d never let me go home. ‘Oh, come on back to New York for three days. We need to California for a day.’ So I was surprised that he walked away from the lifestyle because that was him, he loved it.”
