• Hulk Hogan Says RAW Star Could Be The Next Ultimate Warrior
During a recent interview with Orlando Sentinel, WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan revealed that he’ll return to WWE programming at next week’s WWE Crown Jewel PPV.
He also noted during the interview that he’s also looking forward to WrestleMania 35:
“There are a lot of plans in the works. I’m looking forward to going to Saudi Arabia with the WWE, looking forward to WrestleMania — but yeah, we’re moving forward at a rapid pace. It’s exciting to have this opportunity again after all these years where I was there and gone.”
Hogan was also asked what he would like to do when he returns to WWE and below is what Hogan said:
“This is a total ego trip, but this is what I would love: To be the hood ornament of the WWE, to be the Babe Ruth of the WWE, and to always be around when any of the big stuff is going on.
I sure would love to be a part of the WrestleManias and the big events and the grand openings and the new conquests of the WWE. Saudi Arabia! Hong Kong! China! Antarctica! The North Pole! Whatever it is, I’d like to be part of the ongoing growth of the wrestling business, and be with WWE the whole time, that’s the only place to be.”
Hogan then talked about current WWE programming and noted that AJ Styles & Kevin Owens are his favorites.
Hogan also talked about one current RAW Superstar – Drew McIntyre. Hogan thinks McIntyre could be the next Ultimate Warrior:
“McIntyre has made this crazy change in his look. He’s intense in his interviews. There’s not a joke when he talks. The business is in his blood. He could be the next Ultimate Warrior, a good-looking WWE superstar that carries the belt for 10 years.”
