Jesse The Body Ventura

Recently we posted about Jesse Ventura’s interview and his beliefs on Hulk Hogan, well here’s even more.

In an interview with WrestlingWorldInsanity.com, Jesse Ventura had some rather harsh words for Hulk Hogan. After years of speculation, Ventura has revealed that it was none other than Hulk Hogan who ratted him out to Vince McMahon for wanting to form a wrestlers union in the late 1980s. The union issue was one of the major factors that contributed to McMahon and Ventura’s strained relationship back in the day:

“Let me say this. Hogan was the biggest thing ever in wrestling. You know, in our era, there’s no doubt about that. Hulkamania on all that, but it’s like my agent in Hollywood would say. When everyone was Hulkamania this, Hulkamania that, my agent kept saying, “Yeah. That’s great. But this Jesse Ventura is truly more talented.” Hogan and I have not been on good terms for a long, long time ever since I tried to unionize wrestling and he’s the one who ratted me to Vince. So, at that time, I realized this so-called friend was indeed not a friend; that he was completely in it for himself. But that’s the nature of the business. You know, it is a cut-throat business and I accept that. I don’t have a great deal of respect for Hogan, today, and one of the reasons is because of that show he does, “Hogan Knows Best.” This is just my opinion, but I’d never exploit my family that way to the media. I think that’s grasping at stardom and attempting to stay on top.”

Ouch. Now I want to see the Hulkster’s response…
