• Hulk Hogan vs. John Cena Almost Happened

During the latest episode of Something To Wrestle, Bruce Prichard discussed “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan’s return to WWE in 2005.

Prichard noted that Hogan was impressed with then WWE Champion John Cena while working with him on TV in a 6 man tag team match.

Hogan saw the potential in Cena and immediately began discussing a future match with him, but they never got to that point as Hogan left after defeating Shawn Michaels at SummerSlam 2005.

Below is what Prichard said on the podcast:

“Hulk was always looking for that next mountain to climb, the next Superstar to conquer. So yeah, you are looking at Cena? You are looking at who you want to be in the ring with and play with and have fun.

Of course, it’s John Cena. I definitely remember that and I definitely remember Hulk going holy cow, this is going to be good.

Hulk was already gone before we could (book the match against John Cena).”
