Hogan's feud with Ric Flair
Back on March 4th 1999 on Thunder, Hogan spoke out against Flair in a special announcement by the NWO. Here is a transcript of what he said from a video on you tube that's been removed. I'd like you to read it and tell me why Hogan expressed such jealousy and feelings of hatred towards someone who had every right not to have reacted when David turned against him.

I thought about my little son, Nicholas coming to me and saying, “dad, stick it, Everything you did for me, every time you laced the hockey skates, every time you took me to the emergency room to get stitched up, even if it might not even be your fault dad, by playing a little too hard, uh, forget, forget all that. Forget thanking you for all the help, forget the love, and holding you when you were sick, and had the hundred and five degree fever, forget, all that, you know, forget all the meals, the protection, the shelter, forget all that. I hate you dad.” I, you know people hate me, man. People look at me and they´re disgusted, whether they´re shooting, whether they´re working, you know, whether they´re at work or whether they´re at home, they hate me, you know it´s like, for fifteen years, hey man, train, pray, eat your vitamins, you know, Hollywood, not Hollywood, but Hulk Hogan loves you, um, and all of a sudden I look at them and said I did it for the money. I really didn't care anyway, I mean I´m a businessman, I got my own agenda, you know. You know, a lot of people think I´m bad, that I´m not a good person. Well, you know, I´m used to the comments, the jealousy the straight up deal that that´s the way it is, but (laughs) when I saw Ric Flair, when I saw the lust, the love in his life, is wrestling, that he actually lives for wrestling, that he actually keeps showing up, just to hear the people one more time? Ric Flair is worse than I am. Ric Flair is a rotten piece of crap in the bottom of the barrel. Ric Flair showed no remorse for his own son, for the fact that his own son said, “Ric Flair, dad, I don´t love you, I don´t care about my mom, my brothers and my sisters. The love I have for this woman is greater than that, anything you've ever given me, I don´t care about that, I´m throwing it all away.” Ric Flair didn't react. He just went woo woo styling and profiling. I´m going to the Marriott, everybody meet me at the Marriott. He didn´t even care that he lost his son? I mean, that´s as rotten as you can be.

Re: Hogan's feud with Ric Flair
My question is why was Hogan trying to project himself onto Ric Flair, when he himself whipped David in public, in front of his father as he was forced to watch. What gave Hogan the right to preach what was rotten and how Ric Flair was worse than he was?

He was a heel.

Re: Hogan's feud with Ric Flair
A heel with a very bad excuse for a reason. I mean, you can't beat some one up and then he joins you, and expect his father to react the way you'd like him to. Come on, it was bad writing and possibly even Hogan pulling his weight to make things work his way. He tried to meddle in Randy Savage's life before, so how he came across as the holier than though figure in his feud with Flair suggests he got the writers to pen what he wanted them to.

Re: Hogan's feud with Ric Flair
hogan is a piece of shit bastard scumbag in reallife. It's easy for him to be a heel. His whole family is rotten like his drunk and drive son and his slutty daughter. His ex-wife is dellusional too.

Re: Hogan's feud with Ric Flair
I'm almost done with Ric Flair's book and was just reading about this period of time. I don't think Ric Flair was too pleased with this angle and he was not pleased with WCW. One thing that Flair says he is still mad about till this day is Hogan whipping David a bunch of times with the belt. It was only suppose to be a couple times but Hogan took advantage of the situation and thought it'd be funny to whip him a lot. If I had to guess Hogan was talking like that because Flair didn't care about the storyline and thought it was stupid. Hogan was possibly trying to get more of an honest reaction from Fliar? I know after reading the book I want to rewatch those segments because how Flair talks about it there was lots of real life drama going on behind the scenes (of course it's wcw).

Re: Hogan's feud with Ric Flair
On a talk show on Canada's version of ESPN, TSN, called "Off the Record", sometime around 2000, Hogan said that while playing "The Hulkster" (brother), he would feel he was the best, but as Terry Bolea (himself), he knew Flair was the best. I can't prove that nor can I be sure that Hogan was on the level.

But as far who comes out as the winner in the end, it's too obvious. Hogan was ready to kill himself, or so he says, when Layla Ali called saved and his life. Hogan can barely walk. Flair seems to be in very good shape. His appearances on Raw have won him "The Universe".

Any further disputes as to who is the greatest of all time are over. Whether you like him or you don't like him, you have no choice but to pay HOMAGE TO THE MAN!
