• Reason Behind Hulk Hogan Not Joining The Bullet Club After Negotiations Revealed
Hulk Hogan, who’s the biggest name in Professional Wrestling, has noted in the past during an autograph session & an interview that he’d love to join The Bullet Club. Below is what the Hulkster said:
“I would love to be in the Bullet Club. I’d love to be the OG for the Bullet Club. Teach them boys how to really get corrupt.
I’m about ready to jump on a plane and fly to Japan and get involved with that Bullet Club, man. I’m so excited about those kids.”
Bullet Club members The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson) told Sports Illustrated in an interview that they would love Hogan to be on their side:
Matt: “I’d love to welcome Hulk in. He’s honestly my favorite wrestler of all time, so working with him in any capacity would be fun.”
Nick: “I’d love to have him walk us down the aisle at the Tokyo Dome while the three of us play air guitar. That would be a dream come true.”
Wrestling Observer is reporting that there were legitimate talks of Hulk Hogan joining the Bullet Club, but a deal couldn’t be reached because Hogan was demanding a lot of money, and rightfully so.
Another thing that didn’t help the deal was that the Bullet Club members felt Hogan would leave them to join WWE as soon as the offer comes.
