St. Louis, Mo. (KMOX) – Wrestling star Hulk Hogan spoke with KMOX Sports Director Tom Ackerman this morning about Impact Wrestling Live tonight at the Chaifetz Arena.
“This (St. Louis) is a great wrestling town,” Hogan told Ackerman. “If you got booked in St. Louis, that was a big deal. That means you were on the right track with your career.”
Hogan now works on the executive side of the sport — running the wrestling organization TNA, Total Nonstop Action Wrestling.
Ackerman and Hogan talked about “Hulkamania” and how it started in St. Louis 30 years ago when Hogan had his first match back in the WWF here in the city at the Kiel Auditorium.
