“LeBron is #3” – WWE Legend Puts Hulk Hogan Ahead of LeBron James

There are several questions in the Universe that can never be answered. One of them revolves around athletes such as LeBron James, Hulk Hogan, Roger Federer, and other renowned names.

The question is – what if one athlete had chosen a different sport? Would they be as big a success? For example, a fan asked a similar question: “If LeBron were a wrestler, who would he be?”

Now, most of the time, these questions are directed towards the Legends of the sport. And, this particular question was directed towards The Iron Sheikh.

The WWE Legend promptly answered, and revealed that LeBron would be the number three jobber, while it’s Hulk Hogan first and Hulk Hogan second.

In fact, his exact term was “number 3 Jabroni”. The word “Jabroni” was a part of The Iron Sheik’s character. He used this term for jobbers or for pro-wrestlers whose work was to put other wrestlers over.

LeBron James doesn’t have a good fortune with WWE Legends

While The Iron Sheik put Hulk Hogan over (quite sarcastically), James had the chance to be in The Undertaker’s good books.

Unfortunately, in 2016, The Deadman was waiting for an hour, but he never bothered to come out to meet him at a Cavaliers Game. It was all the more questionable considering WWE and Superstars were invited to the game!

Such actions don’t quite sit well with legends. Especially those who have contributed a significant lot to their sport and have risen to top because of their hard work and skill!

Additionally, it’s unlikely LeBron James will ever shift his focus on pro-wrestling. He may enjoy watching it, but he’s never going to step in the ring. Rather, the court than the ring for King James!

Hulk Hogan is rather popular among Superstars

It’s not just The Iron Sheik who thinks that Hogan is a good one, but there are others as well.

Hogan has been quite the popular choice among the four names pro-wrestlers take for their Mount Rushmore of Wrestlers.
