Hulk Hogan Reveals Which Opponent Used To Actually Scare Him

Hulk Hogan recently took part in a five-minute interview with BBC, in which he discussed how much of wrestling is choreographed, his iconic look, and more. In the following quote, he responds to being asked if he's ever been scared about getting into the ring:

"Yeah, I've been really scared - Andre the Giant. Andre the Giant beat me up for the first eight years every day and I used to puke on the way to the ring before I got to the building, I was so nervous. Then we became friends, and after eight years, he started to like me."

    Hogan never lifted Andre over his head…he body slammed him,but never pressed him above his head. Hogan was big…but I wouldnt say he was THAT strong….EVER

    Did Warrior ever body press Andre? I could have sworn I saw a picture of him pressing Andre in a WWE magazine when I was a kid, but I'd never seen it since.

    Any decent sized wrestler could have body slammed Andre if Andre let them like he did hogan body slam him against his will that would be impressive

      There’s an Andre the Giant bodyslam compilation on YouTube of every (known) videotaped slam anyone every got on Andre…well, everyone who Andre allowed to slam him.

      One that I know for fact slammed Andre, but with no video cameras, is Masked Superstar. No reason he’d lie either, Andre was godfather to one of his daughters.
