From 1987 to 1988, Hulk Hogan and Bigelow worked as a tag team where they took Ted DiBiase and either Andre the Giant or Virgil in a series of tag team matches.

However, when they worked together, Hogan was almost seven years older than Bigelow. So, the question is – did they work well together? WWE Legend Bruce Prichard has an answer.

“They liked each other. I think they both like the Iranian tobacco and they liked each other.”

The duo even headlined the first Survivor Series as a tag team.

Bam Bam Bigelow did not like what Vince McMahon was making him do

Bigelow played babyface, but he didn’t want to. Even though Vince McMahon thought he would work well as a babyface, Bigelow had other ideas.

“You know, Scott was a big agile guy. I don’t know, Vince saw him as a babyface. Vince just looked at him and thought this guy, people are going to love and he’s a babyface. But, Bigelow didn’t like being a babyface. He felt more natural as a heel and he always had that mean rugged look and it just was a disconnect.”

Apart from that, there’s no word on him coming back. He’s focusing rather heavily on his beach shop. In fact, that was his primary focus for the holiday season, considering limited edition action figures went up for sale at his beach shop.
