Race sits down with In Your Head Wrestling Radio to discuss Hulk Hogan and the WWE championship.
Well, no matter how you want to word it or how you want to say it, if you’re good enough to get to all the places that Hogan was at you’ve got to be way the hell above average…Hogan gets good and bad raps virtually on a daily basis, but the end product was he was who he was and he would not have gotten there were he incapable of handling the process of getting there and then handling it once after he was there
Race talks to WGD Weekly about Hulk Hogan and his last conversation with Owen Hart before his death.
In confronting the Hulkster, he was the type of guy, that he was being paid to do what he did, and that is how he looked at it. He didn’t look at it as though he was running roughshod over everyone else out there. I confronted him about all that garbage. There was no push come to shove or anything.
The second King of the Ring tournament is held. Harley Race overcomes Roddy Piper, Don Muraco, Paul Orndoff and Pedro Morales to claim the crown. Race comments.
In the tournament itself, I had to advance four times. Getting by Morales at the end was something special. He had been World Wrestling Federation Champion. He was the guy who I really wanted to face to make the King of the Ring mean something. I think overall, it did real well.
