• Hulk Hogan Begins Training For WrestleMania 36 After Undergoing Back Surgery

During an interview with Wrestling Academy back in November 2019, 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.”

Hogan recently underwent his 10th back surgery and he has already begun training for WrestleMania 36.

Below is what Hogan tweeted:

“They said 4 months light weight then 6 months I could train slowly again after back surgery number 10, buuuttt at 7 weeks 4days my MANIACS can see I’m on the grind with my pizump on brother! I mean PLIZEASE WrestleMania is right around the corner Brother! HollyWoodHH4Life”

Hogan is going to become a 2 time WWE Hall of Famer during WrestleMania 36 weekend when the nWo gets inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame Class of 2020.

Hogan noted on Twitter that he plans to party in “nWo style” at WrestleMania 36 after their Hall of Fame induction:

“Very grateful that the four original nWo members HollyWood, Big Kev, X and Scott are getting inducted to the WWE HOF.

We are not coming back to take over and change the business again, we are just coming back to celebrate our run, get inducted and party NWO style at WrestleMania. HH”
