• WWE Nixed Major Plan For Hulk Hogan
According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider, WWE had big plans for “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan, but that plan got nixed when they had to release Hogan in 2015.
Johnson noted that WWE was planning to reveal a Hulk Hogan Statue:
“I know at one point they were going to do a Hulk Hogan statue reveal and the entire idea was to build a DVD documentary around Hogan’s career and it would end with the reveal of that statue. Perhaps now that Hogan is back in their good graces they’ll pull that idea out of mothballs, we’ll see.”
A Statue for Hogan seems fitting as he’s the biggest name in Professional Wrestling history and we hope this happens soon!
