"The Immortal" Hulk Hogan was interviewed by Fighting Spirit Magazine recently, and candidly spoke on the passing of "Macho Man" Randy Savage, and his desire to induct him into the WWE Hall of Fame.
“I’ve heard all these urban legends about Randy doing something to piss Vince off. I’ve heard two or three different stories, and I don’t know if any of those are true, but he deserves to be in the Hall of Fame, and I would love to be the one that inducts him. I’ve got a speech for him ready to go. I just think it’s a must that he’s in the Hall of Fame; he was so influential in this business, especially in the WWF, and in my career.
The Hulkster also mentioned Savage's unique ability to draw a crowd, rivaling only himself through the 1980s.
"You know, he’s the only guy we could pass the belt to, and we wouldn’t lose money. You gave the belt to The Ultimate Warrior – I don’t want to drop a bunch of names – and right away the revenue went down. Give the belt to ‘Macho Man’, and things would stay the same, or get better.”
