Hulk Hogan has responded to negative comments made about him by WWE superstar CM Punk about him this morning on the BJ Shea Morning Experience show in Seattle. You can listen to an MP3 of the interview at this link.
Hogan listened to the comments and said, â€œWell, you know, itâ€™s kind of like the law of attraction. Heâ€™s probably going to attract more of that negative stuff to his career because, you know, if youâ€™re functioning on that level, thatâ€™s probably what you are going to attract, but at the end of the day, you know, I was selling out Madison Square Garden when that kid was pooping in his diapers, so you know, youâ€™re going to see what Iâ€™m all about. Iâ€™m not there to wrestle. I donâ€™t have a contract to wrestle. Iâ€™m there to run this company. Make it better, like I said, give the talent a choice. All the talents that are locked in thereâ€¦Iâ€™m sure Vince McMahon is giving CM Punk the big push but paying him crumbs, because I know how that goes, because Iâ€™m giving the fans a choice, and the talent a choice and Iâ€™m going to prove to this negative guy that heâ€™s wrong.â€
When asked about Punk making a personal attack on him, Hogan said, â€œThatâ€™s cool. I understand heâ€™s surrounded by negative stuff up there and I can see why heâ€™s jaded in his opinion. One of the things that I learned a long time ago is that you canâ€™t judge anyone. You canâ€™t judge a book by itâ€™s cover. Some of the craziest looking, weirdest people seem to be the nicest people and the most honest people in the world. I would never judge anyone before I meet them. Some day down the road, CM Punk and I are probably going to work together and I would never judge him under any preconceived notions. I would judge him on the type of person he was when I met him. Itâ€™s all good, brother. I am vibing so high brother. I am going to reward those who are with me and those who arenâ€™t my friends, I am going to win them over and make them my friends.â€
