WWE Hall Of Famer Talks Nixed WrestleMania Main Event With Hulk Hogan, More

Arda Ocal of theScore Television Network and the Baltimore Sun recently spoke with WWE Hall of Famer Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka. Here are some highlights:

His daughter, Tamina, in WWE: "I taught both her and my son. At first they were using her pretty good, but all of a sudden they start (having her lose) and I thought 'what's going on here'? She hurt her wrist and was out for a while and now she's back again. She looks better than ever and I'm so proud of her. I tell her to put only one focus in your mind and take care of #1 and that's it."

Proposed angle to turn heel and main event WrestleMania with Hulk Hogan: "Vince McMahon came up to me and said 'we want you to turn heel'. I said 'OK, what's up brudda?' and Vince said he wanted me to wrestle Hulk Hogan and I said I loved it. I heard that Hogan later that 'I don't want to wrestle with that crazy maniac.' But I loved him anyway."

Snuka also discussed why he decided to write an autobiography, still taking bookings and wrestling, a possible return for his son, how he gave The Rock "The People's Eyebrow," how he was supposed to become WWWF champion and more. You can listen to the full interview below:
