I have been busy doing research into new jersey.  I came across this article done on Hul Hogan in the newspapers.   The date is April 4, 1986.  It is hyping Wrestlemania 2.  Here is the quote word for word.

 When I first won the heavyweight title from the rather bland Bob backlund, I was just doing what I'd been doing the last 10 years.  And I told the kids I was training, saying my prayers and eating my vitamins, man.  Your not gonna see Hulk Hogan in the paper with some drug or sex scandal I can guarantee that.  It was a situation when I won the world heavyweight title, I was immediately thrown in the eye of the storm as far as the media.  And once people started listening to my rap and the kids started picking up on it, they actually believed in me after they watched week after week, time after time.


Umm...  did he just call Bob bland?   lol

Umm...  he has no clue or recolection who he won the title from?

umm...  no drug scandals?

Hogan has always lived in his own mind for sure.

That's one of the saner and less delusional quotes that I've heard from Hogan.  He means he took over the mantel of the company from Backlund, not that he actually won the belt from him.  And let's face it, the company line always was that Backlund was bland.  That's not an outrageous statement.  As far as drug and sex scandals, he's certainly not going to admit that there might be some on the horizon and back in 1986 no one was really thinking along those lines with him yet.

He was right about Backlund being a boring interview.

He was sort of right about taking over for Backlund, since Sheiky baby was a One Month transitional Champion.
