While Hulk Hogan was never the best at putting over his opponents in his heydey, he’s one of the best at understanding how the business works regarding creating stars, and he’s picked one out he believes will be the future of the WWE.

He has plenty of options to choose from; the company needs a replacement for John Cena, and while Roman Reigns looked like the successor, many would probably pick the likes of Seth Rollins or even Sami Zayn as the next big face.


Not according to Hogan, though. Speaking to ESPN, The Hulkster said that current WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens is the future of the company.

While many don’t believe Owens deserves the accolade, one of the many being Vince Russo who claims making him the biggest star is a mistake, Hogan seems to be in the champion’s corner.

He said: “This kid Kevin Owens, no matter how he looks physically and no matter what you think about him, when he walks out, he’s over in such a weird way.”

The biggest criticism of Owens is that he doesn’t look like a typical WWE star, something that Vince McMahon loves. However, it’s been proven over the years that you don’t need to look like a chiselled, Greek God to be over or to become the champion.


It’s even more amusing as Owens can do more impressive things than those in better shape.

The only disadvantage that he has now is that he’s so over as a heel, that the fans can’t stop cheering for him, despite his best efforts to stop them. Hogan went on to add that this current heel run for Owens will one day turn him into the biggest face on the roster.

He added: “I look to see a guy with a lot of hope who could break through this cookie-cutter menu that people have now to choose from and break through and change the game again.

“A guy like Kevin Owens shows me that hope spot that no matter how much TV you have to shoot, no matter how many towns you have to make – here is one guy that will put it back on track and make it easier for everybody to figure it out.”

He went on to praise him by calling him the smartest wrestler in the WWE right now because he’s one of the few that truly understands heat. He also knows the right time for a face to get a comeback and is as masterful as Pat Patterson when it comes to back peddling.

Because of him, the fans are more sympathetic towards the good guys. That’s a special quality to have.
