— ESPN.com has posted an interview with TNA star Hulk Hogan, who talked about the viral video of New York Jets linebacker Bart Scott cutting a wrestling promo after Sunday’s win over the New England Patriots. Hogan, a childhood hero of Bart Scott, said the NFL star’s post-game interview was clearly inspired by wrestling interviews.
“It was like one of my mid-’80s promos, and all that was missing were a few ‘What are you gonna dos?’ and some lightning bolts in there. It was right on the money. I think it’s cool that [Scott] is stepping up and showboating it a bit, because it’s about personality and entertaining people, too.
I could tell Bart had been watching wrestling, and it’s pretty cool because a lot of these guys are afraid to step outside the box. … Sometimes when you say stuff you believe it and it happens.”
When asked whether Scott could have a future in pro wrestling once his professional football days are over, Hogan said:
“Oh yeah. When his career’s over and he wants to make some real money, tell him to give me a call and we’ll break him in the right way.”
Here’s the video of Bart Scott’s promo:
