Speaking with the Two-Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast, Hulk Hogan reflected on working with King Kong Bundy and says that an underrated element to King Kong Bundy were his good looks.

"What I always said about him is, when I saw his face, 'that's a good looking man'. King Kong Bundy was a good-looking guy. A lot of people never saw that because of the shaved head and he was so big, but he was a good-looking man when he was younger. I didn't pay much attention to him when we both got old but when he first started wrestling. Austin idol is huge as well. He had that same face, just so huge as Mike McCord that you couldn't tell he was a good-looking guy, but that's how Bundy was. He was always nice to me. He was just heavy-handed as hell," said Hulk.

Hulk Hogan, speaking about the main event of WrestleMania 2 said he was so confident in his program with Bundy that he wasn't worried about if the other two WrestleMania events would fall apart, he knew they would be able to hold up the expected quality and still be able to deliver on the show.

"WrestleMania 2 was a good one man because that was a weird deal to have that thing in three different locations," Hulk said. "To wrestle him to have him in that little storyline if everything went awry and screwed up everything, if everything fell off into the ocean in New York and Chicago, we'd have still held our own. We'd have been okay."

Elsewhere in the same interview, Hulk Hogan officially declared himself retired for good and said there's no chance of him having another match. Read more here.
