Hulk Hogan called out by rival after 24 years

Published 1 Comments

It has  been 24 years since the 1989 Survivor Series, but one wrestler has not forgotten the defeat that took place there.

Tiny Lister, also known as 'Zeus' was defeated by returning WWE legend Hulk Hogan during the series in late 1989 but is now demanding a rematch against the 60 year-old icon.

When asked by TMZSports recently if he would return to WWE, Lister said: "Hell yeah!, as a grudge match. We got some unfinished business, I didn't get all my money... And I must get my money."

Lister appeared in Hogan's 1989 move 'No Holds Barred' and then appeared as Zeus during SummerSlam and Survivor Series losing twice to Hogan during those match ups.

Lister has since appeared in a number of movies, highlighted by a small appearance in 'The Dark Knight' in 2008.

The actor was convicted of mortgage fraud in 2012 and so could certainly do with some good publicity and perhaps a pay day, not sure how much a grudge match with wrestling legend Hogan would help his PR in the long term however.

Hogan is now 60 and Lister is not much fresher at the age of 55 so an actual matchup between the two seniors would probably be out of the question on health concern reasons. However, it is still fun to see if these two stalwarts of the golden age could still perform in 2014.
