On the subject of his movie career, Hogan explained that he’s actually more successful than The Rock:
“Compared to the success that Brad Pitt or Arnold Schwarzenegger have had, people probably thought I had a run of B movies that sucked. But those movies were cheap to make and they generated a lot of revenue. If you watch what my movies made against what The Rock’s movies are doing now, taking into account changing ticket prices and how many more theaters his movies were shown in, I still generated more revenue than he did.”
While Hogan believes a match with Steve Austin could do big business, he’s not sure if the two click enough to perform the match. He also had some less-than-flattering words for those under the impression that Austin is a star of his caliber:
“Austin has been in the business about 18 years and he was on top for four. I wrestled main events for 25 years. I could pull my dick out and I might be on top for four years – it’s called ‘cheap heat.’ Somebody who stays on top 25 years has to have more than that. It has to be in your spirit.”
