UFC legend Chuck Liddell was recently interviewed by Wrestling Inc. to discuss several professional wrestling topics.
Here are the highlights:
Being compared to Hulk Hogan:
It’s a great compliment because I loved Hulk Hogan growing up. I’ve watched it since I was a kid. I’ve never been a fanatic as I don’t watch it a lot. But I really became more of a fan when I met Shane McMahon. I was hanging out with him and he invited me to one of the big shows as I had never been to a big show. I went and watched these guys do all these crazy things off the ropes and ladders. It was really big guys doing crazy stuff and that really impressed me. It was a lot of fun. [Shane] is a wild man. We had a good time going out and hanging out.
Any interest in WWE:
I’d be interested in doing bigger shows or big events. I’d love to do some cross-promotion with them too. I don’t know if I can do the all-year grind with those guys. That’s a little more work than what I wanna put in these days.
How closely he follows wrestling now:
I never followed it real close as I was a casual fan. If it was on, I would watch it. I always joked that it’s kinda goofy and fun. When I went with Shane to one of the events, it was a lot more impressive in person than it was on TV. And it was impressive on TV, so it was fun to watch. It was an entertaining night and the event was entertaining. It would be fun to go out there and goof around and play a character. I like acting and doing those things. So, I could be whoever you want out there as it’s an act. Playing someone besides yourself is always a good time.
