• Hulk Hogan Wants One Final Match In WWE
During a recent episode of his podcast, Old School WWF Veteran Bruce Prichard talked about SummerSlam 2006, where Hulk Hogan defeated Randy Orton in his final WWE match.
Prichard went on to say that Hogan still wants one final match in WWE (since his last pro-wrestling match was in TNA, not WWE):
“If you were to ask Hulk today, I think Hulk would tell you, ‘I’ve still got one more in me, brother.’ In his head, he does. I just wouldn’t for his health. I don’t want to see that, man.
I want to remember Hulk Hogan as Hulk Hogan and the way he was and for him to come back and do some nostalgia stuff and be Hulk today. Always entertaining, always great.
I just, man, he is Hulk Hogan. You don’t want to see Hulk Hogan, you know, gimping around the ring. I just don’t want to see that.”
Prichard then talked about Hogan beating Orton and then going to TNA to wrestle more matches:
“First of all, as we discussed before, nobody kicks out of the leg drop. Hulk Hogan beat his a$$ because it was Hulk Hogan goddammit!
But you know, also at the same time, the back issues and all the other issues that Hulk had between his knees and back and everything else. It was time for him to be out of the ring.
I’m glad that was his last match, at least in WWE. He would go on to have more elsewhere, but I don’t think that was the best thing for his longevity and for his body in general.”
Hogan’s final pro-wrestling match took place on January 27, 2012, where he teamed up with Sting and James Storm to defeat the team of Kurt Angle, Bully Ray and Bobby Roode in a 6-man tag team match at the TNA Maximum IMPACT UK Tour 2012.
