ESPN New York is featuring an article regarding New York Jets star Bart Scott’s “outburst” after the Jets win over the New England Patriots last weekend and how his childhood hero was Hulk Hogan. Hogan was interviewed for the piece saying he could tell Scott watched wrestling.
“I knew when Bart looked down the barrel of the camera he believed in himself and in what he was saying. And that makes him a real dangerous man. It was like one of my mid-’80s promos, and all that was missing were a few ‘What are you gonna dos?’ and some lightning bolts in there. It was right on the money. I think it’s cool that [Scott] is stepping up and showboating it a bit, because it’s about personality and entertaining people, too. I could tell Bart had been watching wrestling, and it’s pretty cool because a lot of these guys are afraid to step outside the box. Sometimes when you say stuff you believe it and it happens.”
