Wrestling icon Hulk Hogan shared an interesting story about calling himself “Triple H,” his longtime rival The Ultimate Warrior and WrestleMania VI.

WrestleMania VI has become one of the most iconic WWE events in history. It was that time when the reign of Hogan was ended by Ultimate Warrior after a one-of-a-kind wrestling showdown.

After 29 years, Hogan reflected on the historic event during an exclusive talk on "The Steve Austin Podcast." According to Hogan, WWE CEO Vince McMahon believed he would make more money from Ultimate Warrior than him, Wrestling Inc. reported.

"I had my gimmick going. All the sudden the Ultimate Warrior comes along, and he has the neon colors on, I have a big set of arms and one big ab, he has a 12-pack. All the sudden I'm sitting in a room and seeing Vince look at him and not really look at me anymore and Vince is calculating the dollar signs. I could see Vince seeing him as a better money-making package than me because I had been along for a while," Hogan said.

Hogan then continued by revealing that during the they were doing the WrestleMania event, he had asked Vince McMahon two important questions.

"When we did the  WrestleMania  thing, we did the build-up pretty good. Then it gets time to go over the finish, and whether I'm going over or not, I have the same two questions: Why are we doing this, and what happens next? When I was told to put the Warrior over, I asked those questions and Vince said, 'I think the red and yellow is over, we have gotten everything we can out of it,'" Hogan revealed.

Surprised by McMahon’s response, Hogan came up with an idea and proposed that he call himself “Triple H.”

“And I was like, 'Damn, Vince what if after the finish I point to God, give him the belts and leave, but I do that slow Three Stooges turn, I go back and gaff his a-- and call myself Triple H, Hollywood Hulk Hogan? He said, 'that would never work and you can't be a heel.' So, he squashed that," Hogan revealed.

Hogan then continued by unveiling the story behind the iconic moment in WrestleMania VI.

"I knew if I slid back out there and grabbed that belt from Hebner, looked up to God and said okay and handed it to him, it would work. He is the one that pulled me in for the hug and he said, 'I love you'. Now, when I leave, I was betting on the people to follow me going down that aisle. And when you watch, every person is watching me down that aisle, not him celebrating in the ring," Hogan revealed.
