Hulk Hogan Wants To Go Fishing With NXT Superstar Colin Cassady

WWE icon Hulk Hogan has given his full backing to a superstar-in-waiting who at one point looked as if he would never get a chance at the big time.
NXT star Colin Cassady is "a big dollar sign" according to the Hulkster, who wishes he could've had the near 7 footer face him during his heyday.
But had Cassady - real name Billy Morrissey - not made improvements after crunch talks on his future in 2013, Hogan may not have ever heard of him.

In ESPN's 'Behind The Curtain' documentary, which aired on ESPN in the US last night, Cassady's future was seen being debated by Triple H and other senior figures in production meeting scenes, the likes of which have never been shown on TV before.
Ruminating over whether it may be time to 'fish or cut bait' on the 28-year-old, Triple H says: “The day of developmental being a career choice is over.
“At some time it becomes unfair to him to continue his training for so long.”
Thankfully, it is decided Cassady is a prospect worth the continued investment - and going by Hulk's endorsement, Colin looks like he will be one that pays off.
