Video: Hulk Hogan complimentary of Triple H taking over for WWE from Vince McMahon

Hulk Hogan was recently asked about Triple H taking over WWE from Vince McMahon and his answer is more than a little surprising.

Current TNA General Manager Hulk Hogan was asked in a recent interview, an outtake of which you see above, about his feelings on Triple H taking over the reins at WWE for Vince McMahon once he finally steps aside. "The Hulkster" was surprisingly complimentary and put over his promotion's chief competition:

"Well from what I see... I had a great conversation with him a long time ago in New York and he seems to be dialed in. He seems to be... he's not Triple H the wrestler, he's Triple H this kind of like step back and he's got a real good feel for the big picture. Vince (McMahon) will always be around but I just think they're a cohesive team. They won't miss a beat and if you call them at five in the morning or two o'clock in the morning, they're the type of people that the business is 24 hours a day for them. They're going to be a strong force to be reckoned with for quite a long time. They'll keep everybody busy."

Agree or disagree with what Hogan says here? Is WWE going to be well off with Triple H running the show and McMahon gone? Or will it just provide an opportunity for TNA to close the gap?
