Hulk Hogan Gives Thoughts On Whether AEW Could Be A Competitor To WWE WWE

WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan finds himself rather distant from the world of professional wrestling nowadays, only making very sporadic appearances on WWE television for big anniversary shows.

That being said, Hogan has a lot of free time on his hands, and he spends that time keeping up with the wrestling landscape, not just in WWE.

Speaking to Ariel Helwani on the MMA Hour, Hulk Hogan was asked about his thoughts on All Elite Wrestling, where he said that he not only thinks they’re doing good, but could be a competitor to WWE.

He said:

“I was talking to somebody and I equated it to NASCAR drivers: You need ‘seat time’. You need to spend time in that seat until your start winning championships. It’s almost like AEW is on track, like ‘The Little Engine That Could.’ I just think they need more seat time. They just need to be around a little longer to be really, really, really competitive to where they could go head to head on Monday nights or something like that. But they’re moving forward quite quickly. They’re doing a great job over there.”

When asked by Helwani if he was a regular viewer of AEW television, he said:

 “I record everything brother! I’m a wrestling fan, c’mon!”

The card for the AEW Double Or Nothing event on Sunday, May 28 is as follows:

AEW World Championship – MJF (c) vs. Darby Allin vs. Jack Perry vs. Sammy Guevara
