Hulk Hogan Shares Thoughts on Who Killed WCW

Hulk Hogan Shares Thoughts on Who Killed WCW – The new “Who Killed WCW?” series examines the downfall of the promotion that once beat WWE Raw in the ratings for 83 weeks. Hulk Hogan was one of WCW’s top stars for years, and his run with the New World Order is one of the most memorable periods in wrestling history. The company ultimately went under, and WWE acquired it in 2001.

Speaking with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, Hulk Hogan discussed the downfall of WCW.

“It’s not the flashiest story, but I can tell you what killed WCW. There was no way WCW was going to survive, not under those circumstances,” Hogan said.

Hogan, who opted not to be a part of Vice TV’s project, was talking about the infamous merger between American Online and Time Warner in 2001. The merger spelled the end for WCW, as Hogan recalled how Eric Bischoff was facing an unwinnable battle.

“So many people knock Eric, but there was an opposition he was dealing with from the higher-ups in the company. He just wasn’t going to win that battle. These were executives who had no idea what wrestling was all about, and they had no interest in learning. They wanted more traditional programming. They didn’t want rasslin’ in their high-brow portfolio. They weren’t interested, and nothing else mattered,” Hulk Hogan said.

The WWE Hall of Famer also shared his hope that “Who Killed WCW?” would show the odds that Eric Bischoff was up against, as he said that this was a crucial part of telling the whole story.
