WWE News: Hulk Hogan wants to have his final match against Braun Strowman
What's the story?
WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan recently did a Q & A on his youtube channel that can be found below. A fan (at around the 2:45 mark) asked him which current WWE wrestler he'd like to have a match with, and the Hulkster seemed to have his answer locked and loaded.
He said that he wanted to get into the squared circle with none other than the Monster Among Men and current number one contender for the WWE Universal Championship, Braun Strowman.
In case you didn't know...
The "Immortal" Superstar has not had a professional wrestling match since January of 2012 while he was still working with TNA.
Excluding his appearances as a judge on the last season of "Tough Enough", the Hulk Hogan hasn't since been on WWE television since WrestleMania 31, where he briefly reformed the NWO alongside Kevin Nash and Scott Hall to support Sting in his match with Triple H.
The heart of the matter
When answering the fan's question, this was the Hall of Famer's response:
"If I could wrestle one WWE Superstar because I probably got one left in me, it'd be Braun Strowman. Because I know that even though he's getting over and he's really getting over and he's really getting over, I think that if he ran into the power of Hulkamania it'd blow him and his career through the roof. But we'd have a good time finding out what he's made of, brother."
Notice he mentioned he "has one more left in him", implying that he not only wants to have this match but also that it would indeed be his last. Hulk has always been very outspoken about wanting the last match of his career to be in the company "where it all began", WWE.
Several reports have suggested that Hulk Hogan is back on good terms with Vince McMahon. Now that the storm from the racism scandal has largely passed, there is every possibility that the Immortal One could find his way back to the WWE.
However, there is almost no chance that he would be cleared to compete in a WWE ring, meaning that he will probably never wrestle Braun Strowman.
While some will have fun fantasizing, this means absolutely nothing. Before this, Hogan was campaigning for a match against Cena.
Hogan will always have a reason for wanting "one more match", and it will always be with the biggest star in the company. It's a bit surprising that his answer wasn't Roman Reigns, but heading into No Mercy, no one can argue with the rapidly growing popularity of the Monster Among Men.
