WWE News: Hulk Hogan comments on WWE return and potential Senate run
What’s the story?
WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan was interviewed by WFTS (Transcribed by WrestlingInc) recently. In the interview, Hogan talked about a potential plunge into politics, his desire to wrestle Ric Flair, and the chances of him making a return to the WWE.
In case you did not know…
The 64-year-old Hulk Hogan last appeared for WWE in 2015 after which he was released by the company. Hogan’s leaked sex tape and the controversy that followed was the reason behind WWE’s decision to terminate Hogan’s contract.
A year later, Hogan went on to win the lawsuit regarding his sex tape and in turn, clearing his name to a certain extent.
The heart of the matter
In the interview, Hogan said that he is currently not interested in entering politics now. He did, however, admit that people are trying to get him into the mix. Earlier, Donald Trump’s advisor Roger Stone had mentioned that he is persuading Hogan to run for Senate.
Hogan also said that he is trying to set up one more match with Ric Flair.
“I'm trying to talk Ric into getting in the ring with me one more time. Ric seems to forget, maybe he's been hit in the head with too many steel chairs. In this business – Never say Never." He said.
As far as his potential return to WWE was concerned, Hogan had the following to say.
"The fans are pulling for it, wrestlers are pulling for it. We've got a really good rapport with everyone and we are working towards it – changing the story and making things right again."
The WWE return of Hulk Hogan is a real possibility. A couple of years back, Triple H had mentioned that he is open to bringing back Hogan on board and now that Hogan is away from all the controversies, there aren’t many things stopping the return from happening.
Hogan might be 65-years-old but he is still one of the biggest names in the wrestling business. While Hogan’s desire to wrestle Ric Flair might be a bit overboard, he could come back in a non-wrestling role and end up being a mainstay on the WWE television.
