In an interview with Wrestling Inc, Jesse ‘The Body’ Ventura told the story about Hulk Hogan ratting him out to Vince McMahon.
The story goes that Ventura was trying to start a union for wrestlers in WWE. Hogan told Vince and the idea was nixed.
“I found out about it at a sworn deposition at my court case. Vince put his hand on a Bible and swore to tell the truth. At a deposition you can ask about anything. I told my attorney how I stood up in the locker room and tried to unionize and the next day I got a call from Vince reading me the riot act. How would he know? There was nobody in the room but the wrestlers, I picked my time. I told my lawyers if they could find out how he learned, I’d sure like to know”
“I was sitting right in the room and couldn’t say anything. My attorney said ‘Mr. McMahon, has anyone ever tried to start a union?’ and I remember the quote, he said ‘Jesse Ventura may have spouted his mouth off about it one time,’ so they asked ‘How did you know?’ and without hesitation, he said ‘Hulk Hogan told me.’ Right there under sworn deposition, I learned how Vince learned. Hulk continued to deny it, even when Vince went on national TV and was confronted by Larry King. Yet, Hogan continues to deny it”
As you can imagine, Ventura is not a fan of Hulk Hogan….
