Hulk Hogan has made a bold claim.

In an interview with The 700 Club, Hogan said that fellow wrestling legend Roddy Piper contacted him after he died in 2015.  The 700 Club has been the flagship television show of the Christian Broadcasting Network since 1966.

Wearing a ‘John 3:16′ shirt Hogan described how he and Piper never got along inside and outside the ring when they were stars in WWE.

“A buddy of mine Roddy Piper passed away. He was trying really hard to surrender and get his life straight so he would text me every single day. In the wrestling business for 25 years, we couldn’t stand each other. We were at each other’s throats…He did not like me and I did not like him. That’s just how it was. Once we got older and we had some conversations we started talking a lot. He asked me about my spirituality. He really didn’t connect but he was very curious. He wouldn’t surrender. All of a sudden he passes away,” recounted Hogan.

Hogan then described what happened next. He received a text message from Piper two days after he died.

“It wasn’t a text message. It was a text message that was a voice message…but this text message came in two days after he died. The text message goes:’ I am just loving in my brother. I am just walking with Jesus. Walking with Jesus and loving you, my brother.’ He would never had said that when he was here. It is amazing how things work,” Hogan said crying and having to wipe his eyes.

Hogan also spoke about how much he misses Andre the Giant.

“I miss Andre’s honesty because he didn’t pull any punches with people. He had a very, very rough life. I would walk with him through the airport and I would hear people making horrible comments. He is 7’4 and 650 pounds. I would travel with him a lot and there was never…he could never sit in that chair. There was never a comfortable chair. He couldn’t hold a fork or a knife. Whenever he would get a hotel room I would go into his room and help him push the beds together. He still wouldn’t fit on two double beds. I miss his guidance and his friendship,”

As to why people still remember him and his wrestling legacy Hogan responded: “I think it is generational trust. The parents and the grandparents all know who I am. The kids know who I am but in Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malaysia, they might not know Tom Brady but they know Hulk Hogan. It is crazy how many homes I have been into around the world in a consistent basis every weekend for forty-plus years.”

Describing himself as a “meat suit filled with the power of Christ”, Hogan says he became a Christian at 14 but “derailed”. His recent baptism reawakened him.

“It broke down that fourth or fifth wall to tell people the truth about my Lord and Savior. How you should look at things. How you should care for people and not judge them. It set me free. I wasn’t the perfect vessel that I should be. Once I was baptized I felt all new. It was a major pivot in my life,” he said.
