During a recent appearance on the Stories With Brisco & Bradshaw podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Abdullah the Butcher recalled his match with Hulk Hogan in Japan in 1982.

The match was so well received by fans that Hogan told Abdullah he would ask Vince McMahon about bringing him into WWE.

Abdullah said, “I wrestled Hogan in Japan, we tore the place down. He got color for me, Bam, bam, he’s bleeding. I was just doing my stuff like that. We sold everything out in Japan and Hogan said … ‘I’m going to talk to Vince McMahon. I’m going to bring you in but you’re not going to wrestle nobody but me and I’ll make you so much money it’s unbelievable.”

According to Abdullah, McMahon spoke with other wrestlers about his matches as well as his habit of using weapons and bleeding. This is apparently why McMahon opted to never offer Abdullah a WWE contract.

Abdullah, however, was inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame as part of the Class of 2011.
