"Some of the fans want to know about the wrestlers and what were they really like, some of the fans want to know what went down in my personal life and how true was this and how true was that, and I answer everything totally honest."
In an interview with the Canadian Press, Hogan spoke about his affinity for Toronto and some of the memories he cherishes when he wrestled in the city.
"Oh my God, I could just go on and on. A couple of the big ones were, we did the Maple Leaf Gardens thing, that was always awesome. We did the SkyDome thing, that was always awesome. But one of the things that really caught me off guard when I was wrestling...
"I came up to Toronto and they said,'Oh, you're doing a little outdoor show called the CNE.' I went,'OK, a little outdoor show, maybe 5,000, maybe 10,000 people.' I swear to God, when I showed up, there were over 70,000 people at the CNE Centre. So that blew me away."
Hogan also came up with an interesting hypothetical situation which speaks about how loved he is in the Canadian city.
"And it's always been that way in Toronto. They are wild. I was telling somebody the other day,'I swear, if I was broke, totally homeless, hungry, if I crawled with one arm across the border, the people in Toronto would feed me and clothe me and shelter me forever."
His real name is Terry Gene Bollea and was a 14-time world champion, a six-time WWF/WWE champion, seven-time WCW World Heavyweight chamion, IWGP Heavyweight champion and former WWE World Tag Team Champion with Edge, per the Fan Expo Canada's official website.
Hogan was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2005.
