The whirlwind that has been the week following Wrestlemania on the radio station has been crazy. For the first time since doing the radio show I can honestly say I am star struck. This week we interviewed one Hulk Hogan.
Since I can remember, I would turn the TV on and watch WWF and later WCW to try and catch Hulk on TV. It was as a child that I would say my prayers and convince myself that I absolutely NEEDED to get the vitamins that Hulk said to. Essentially he could do no wrong. From the times of feuding with Randy Savage as The MegaPowers collided or later, joining the n.W.o. If Hulk Hogan did it, I had to be a part of it in some way, shape, form or fashion.
In the heyday of the Monday Night Wars, Hogan helped lead the faction to war against his former employer. The WWF and Vince McMahon helped shaped the future that became professional wrestling, but Hulk Hogan took it to the forefront with his role in Rocky 3 leading the way. Whether you are a pro wrestling fan or not, you have been a fan in some way.
TNA Impact wrestling has come to Corpus Christi the week this blog is going up. With this, I was able to meet Hulk. But in the weeks leading up to it, I was able to meet Hernandez and Chavo Guerrero, Jr. Interviewing Hulk. SoCal Val basically stole my heart. This week, Wrestling Week as I have dubbed it, has been nothing short of a dream come true.
Welcome to my childhood. Dream come true.
