During an appearance today on Bubba The Love Sponge, Hulk Hogan said he would not be appearing at WrestleMania 25 this year on April 5 in Houston, TX. Hogan said he was in discussions with Vince McMahon at one point, but in the end they couldn’t find something that would work. He said Vince’s anger over the “Celebrity Championship Wrestling” show has blown over and they can speak to each other in a civil manner. In regards to rumors that Hogan is skipping WrestleMania over a money dispute, Hogan said that wasn’t true and wasn’t going to keep the money for himself stating he would give every dime to John Graziano “since nobody is helping that kid.”
