Rampage Jackson Will Do What He’s Told In TNA, Starstruck When He Met Hulk Hogan

MMAMania.com has a new interview online with Quinton “Rampage” Jackson. In it, he discusses working for TNA Wrestling and what he felt like meeting Hulk Hogan. Below are the highlights:

Doing what TNA tells him to do:

I think what will help me is I have no ego. I’ll do what they tell me. It won’t be my way or the highway. I’ll work with them. I want the best just like they do.

Meeting Hulk Hogan for the first time:

It was great, man. Now I know how fans feel when they get to meet their favorite fighter because that’s how I felt. I didn’t realize notice it before. I didn’t know this about myself but I wasn’t really a big fan of anything but pro wrestling. I didn’t realize that until I met Hulk Hogan. I’ve met actors and famous people before and they’re cool and all, but I was literally starstruck when I met Hulk Hogan. The last time I was that starstruck was when I was 17 and I met one of the biggest pro wrestlers in Memphis from back in the day. It was a cool experience.

Oh yeah. It taught me. When I met Hulk Hogan I was startstruck but what I did was I kept my damn mouth shut. I babbled a little bit but I kept my mouth shut. I shook his hands and I kept it to myself. Some fans want to pat you on the back, hug you, do weird things. For a guy like me, it’s hard to explain. You’d have to wear my shoes a bit to understand. I’ve got nothing against anybody but sometimes, you may not know this but I’m a germ freak. I don’t want to eat and have all these people shaking my hand, talking over my food. I don’t even want a waiter hovering over my food. If you sit down at a restaurant and order something, you don’t want to get interrupted. I might not always want to be approached or have fans get mad at me for not taking a picture because I’m in a rush because I’m always late for everything. I’m a human being in a human situation just like them and I thought of that when I met Hulk Hogan and I kept it to myself. I shook his hands, said “it’s an honor to meet you” and I wish a lot of fans could do the same thing. I do sympathize with them, though.
