• Hulk Hogan Could Have One Final WWE Match After Next Surgery
During a recent interview with Los Angeles Times, WWE Hall of Famer “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan noted that he has talked to Vince McMahon about doing one final match in WWE after his upcoming back surgery as he can’t live with the fact that his final match took place in TNA.
Below is what Hogan said:
“I talked to Vince, and I said I really don’t know if I could live with myself knowing my last match was with TNA [Total Nonstop Action Wrestling]. If I can get fixed, I pray I can have one more match. I told Vince, ‘When I get through this back surgery, I’m going to get in the best shape of my life and we’re going to talk about me having one last retirement match.’
I’d love for it to be against Vince [McMahon]. I had such a great time with him in the ring at WrestleMania 19. I had no idea what to expect from him, but he’s a great bad guy. His timing is great. I loved wrestling him, but everything he does hurts.
When you’re in the ring with someone and they’re hurting you, you kind of pinch them on the wrist, and the whole match I was doing that to Vince. I was like, ‘Vince, take it easy!’ Everything he does hurts, but I’d like to get in the ring with him one more time for my last match. That would be perfect.”
Hogan’s last WWE match took place at SummerSlam 2006, where he defeated “The Legend Killer” Randy Orton.
