Bro, the number of times in the old Western existed the gunfight in the O.K. Corral? And bro, the number of times did the babyface take 5 bullets, however what was the important things? I'm leaving! Brother, Rocky I, Creed might have beat my butt; I'm going out. Brother, Big E crawled out of the cage. No, brother, this is your champion! Hulk Hogan would have never crawled out of the cage. He would have been bloodied. He would have pulled up to the ropes on his feet and made it through the cage like the gunslinger. A Champion needs to never ever be crawling out of the cage, Chris!" described Vince Russo.
Russo likewise said that Hulk Hogan would never have done the same as even a battered Hulkster would have mustered up the strength to go out like a true warrior.It's Drew McIntyre all over once again: Vince Russo on Big E's continuous WWE title reign.
