Dixie Carter Talks About Hulk Hogan’s Popularity

Dixie Carter discussed the importance of Hulk Hogan to TNA during a recent interview with BANG Showbiz. Carter went on to claim that Hogan is the most famous wrestler in the world and his fame rivals Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley.

“He (Hulk) is bigger than any brand, company, name – he is synonymous with wrestling and is probably one of the most recognisable faces or figures on the entire planet. Name me someone who is alive today who’d be more recognisable in any corner of the world? In places like Africa and Asia, or if you were walking in Thailand? Princess Diana or Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley maybe? But they aren’t even with us anymore. The Rock?

“Well, if you are walking in a village in Africa would people know who The Rock was? I think his film work has been outstanding. I’m a huge fan of The Rock, I think he is phenomenal, but would that happen?”

    I agree, and that already happan. Hulk is a bigger star then any brand, company, name and i half agree with miss Cater but comparing Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley and now The Rock? to Hulk Hogan i’m a huge fan of hulk but..We are in 2013 The Rock is now the biggest name in wrestling and the world..The Rock is now a bigger attention. Im a big wrestling fan im just speaking reality.

    • THE Rock is the biggest and the best wrestler out there today ,no one in wrestling can make a come back like the rock , From Raj bachulal South africa

        Yeah..True. I dont think Wrestling wouldnt be alive today if it wasnt for Hulk Hogan he’s one of Kings of Wrestling, he made it cool..You cant take that away from him, but today The Rock is bigger then Hulk and when time passes, Rock is still gonna be Bigger then Hulk Hogan.

          The Rock can still work a match lolol let alone main event a Wrestlemania in 2013. Hogan’s LAST good match was back in 2002….and coincidentally with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. She really doesn’t know what she’s talking about.

    I think Dixie Carter believes her own hype.
