• Old School WWF Jobber Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 56th birthday of Old School WWF Enhancement Talent Johnny K-9 (Real name: Ion William Croitoru).

• Ex-WWE Personality Says Fans Want To See Hulk Hogan vs. The Undertaker At WrestleMania 36
During a recent interview with Wrestling Academy, WWE Hall of Famer “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan revealed that he’s pushing hard to get one final match in WWE at WrestleMania 36.
Below is what Hogan said:
“I’ve been talking to Vince McMahon. History is very important to me. I’ve had a very long career and part of my career was with a very, very small company and a very gracious lady called Dixie Carter in TNA and I had one of my — actually my last match there. That’s hard for me to live with. I want my last match to be in WWE.
I’ve been pushing and negotiating very hard and I’m actually healthy, I’m in very good shape. Little bit under 300 pounds, maybe 295 pounds. I’m getting ready.
I’m going to have one little tiny surgery on my back, maybe take me a couple of months to recover, but I’ve got my eyes set for WrestleMania.
The one I’d love to get in the ring with if I only had one person would be Vince McMahon. I’m very sick of his stuff too.”
Former SmackDown Executive Director Eric Bischoff appeared on the Pancakes and Powerslams podcast and was asked who Hogan’s opponent should be if he returns for a final match.
Below is what Bischoff said:
“Wow. Wow, wow, wow, wow. I think the fans would probably like to see perhaps Hulk and Undertaker.
I know Hulk would probably more than anything want it to be Vince McMahon. You know, if he’s gonna work a match with Vince McMahon, I want to work Hulk’s corner. Me and Vince got a little bit of business to take care of. [laughs] Just kidding, just kidding.
No, you know, I would want for him whatever he would want. Again, a guy with a career like Hulk Hogan, and if he’s able to.
God bless him, if that’s what he wants to do and he’s able to make that happen, I’d be the second happiest person in Florida that night.
But it’s hard for me to imagine that he’ll be able to get ready for something like that. But who knows? He’s done it before.”
The Undertaker vs. Hulk Hogan last took place in 2002. It ended with Undertaker defeating Hogan to win the WWE Undisputed Championship.
