Neal Pruitt, known as the voice of the NWO and a WCW Producer, worked with some of the biggest names in wrestling -- including one of the biggest of all in Hulk Hogan.
During a recent Reddit Ask Me Anything, Pruitt talked about working with Hogan and his willingness to please fans.
I remember doing an interview at Hulk's house in St. Petersburg with Gene Okerlund. After the interview was over, Hogan asked how it was. Gene said it was just fine. I didn't agree however because I knew he could do it better. So we did it again, without hesitation.
I'm grateful for Hulk and the times I worked with him. One of my best memories is him in Chicago when he signed autographs for what seemed like hundreds of people. He was even willing to stay overtime and miss his flight back home so he could sign those autographs. I thanked him in our limo ride back to the hotel. He said he hadn't passed up an autograph in 15 years, and wasn't about to do it now. I said, 'that's why you're on top'.
For some reason, Hulk always felt comfortable around me. I guess it was because I didn't bullshit him, and treated him just like anyone else.
My father said 'there's no-one better than you, and you're no better than anyone else'. That's something I've tried to live by, and it's worked for me so far.
