During the interview, Hogan talked about how The Rock followed in his footsteps as he used pro wrestling as a stepping stone to branch out into entertainment.
Hogan stated that he kicked the door open with the wrestling and the entertainment part as well as kicked the door open by doing kid moves.
He thinks “The Rock came along and he ripped the door off the hinges. He went bang.”
Hogan continued by reflecting that the coolest thing was being at Madison Square Garden one time where he wrestled and tossed out his headband that was caught by The Rock, who was an eight-year-old at the time, as he was sitting in the crowd.
Hogan brought up how he learned about this when The Rock told the story while doing a press tour to promote the latest Jumanji movie. You can watch the interview here:
