Hulk Hogan Says He’s Training Hard For One More Big Match (Wrestlemania?)
Hulk Hogan, much like his co-star in Rocky III, Sylvester Stallone, is never going to think he’s too old to do what he did in his youth. Which is why Hogan at age 61 says he’s been training his ass off as if he was “getting ready for the WWE Championship” even though it’s been 10 years since he wrestled in a WWE ring.
“I got some advice from a wise man, his name is Vince McMahon and he said, ‘Never, say never.’ I’m back home in the WWE, this is where I started, I’m home and to end the legacy and put the period on the end of the sentence I am training right now like I’m getting ready for the WWE Championship,” Hogan tells BANG Showbiz.” You just never know when Hulk Hogan is going to tear the house down. It could be any time, it could be anywhere. I am training and getting ready for my last match, my last run or my retirement match. It’s not over until the fat lady sings and I haven’t put the period at the end of the sentence yet.”
Hogan went on to say that he hopes that Vince McMahon will give him a shot to participate at Wrestlemania 31 on March 29th.
“If it happened I would want it to be the greatest match of all time, of course … If it’s the end of my career and a huge emotional send-off that would be great, or if it’s the beginning of another huge run for Hulkamania and me chasing the dream of winning the WWE title, that would be brilliant. I’m thinking very positively about getting back in the ring.”
While Hogan is completely delusional about chasing the WWE title, should McMahon give Hogan the green light for a single match at Wrestlemania 31 I have one and only one suggestion for his opponent: the man he’s been training – Riff Raff, aka Jody Highroller, the Neon Python. Ratings…Gold.
