“I think if you look at The Undertaker, his impact on this industry, the longevity that he has. At the level that he played and the impact that he had, how do you not give him the nod for that role?” Eric Bischoff mentioned.

“But if you’re going to talk about who had the most significant impact on the industry in the early stages of its amazing growth, how do you not pick up Hulk Hogan? So it’s a tough one. It all comes down to personal preference,” Eric Bischoff added.

Bischoff believes if it was about the wrestling industry making pivotal development in the early 80s and 90s, then the greatest of all-time awards should go to Hulk Hogan.
