Hulk Hogan

The Associated Press is featuring an interview with WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan where he talks about parting ways with WWE back in 2015 after audio went public of Hogan using “repeated racial slurs  to describe a man his daughter was dating at the time.”

The article notes that Hogan’s biography remains removed from WWE.com in the wake of the situation nearly three years ago and that he is not advertised to appear on the RAW 25th Anniversary show this Monday night in New York.

Hogan spoke at length about the possibility of a return to the company.

“I don’t know if they want me back. I think the fans want me back. I think that I’m part of that company from the ground up. Triple H I know is a huge fan of the guys that gave their blood, sweat and tears and their personal life to make this happen. I know Triple H would love to see me back on the inside again. I’m 64 years old and right now I could go out and tear WrestleMania down. I might have that one more match where I really beat the hell out of Vince. I’ve still got one in me.”

WWE, in response to the possibility of a Hogan return, issued this statement.

“At this time, WWE remains committed to its decision.”

The possibility of Hogan getting involved with The Bullet Club in Japan was also mentioned in the article, with Hogan excited about any kind of potential opportunity.

“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.”

  1. Man, . the WWE. Vince is a piece of shit. What’s funny is Hogan would indeed tear the house down at Wrestlemania and he’d be more over than anyone on that roster. Unreal how they are treating this guy (their biggest star in the company EVER) all because of some stupid comments he made which had nothing to do with the company. I hope he goes to Japan or does something soon with another organization.

  2. Terry Gene “Hulk Hogan” Bollea will do anything to keep his name relevent and in the mouth of fans it’s a shame.

  3. I know the Bullet Club is more or less a rip off of the NWO (and DX) but for Hulk Hogan to join them is kinda ridiculous. I’d be like a grandpa joining a club his grandkids are in. I’m a fan of Hulk Hogan,but I’m not gonna agree with everything he does and WWE needs to stop being so petty.

  4. So now Vince is a piece of shit because he won’t hire an open racist for his publicly traded company so you can have a mild pop for Hogan coming back for the 25th Raw Anniversary?

    Jesus… Marks think the stupidest shit.

  5. I think Hogan done as a “wrestler”. He should go back to playing bass for Metallica which is a thing that definitely happened and was in no way made up by Hogan

  6. But they mention people who kill their girlfriends (Snuka) every week, just because his daughter wrestles there. I agree, Vince is a piece of shit who only has a conscience when it comes to who makes money at a certain time. Bringing back Hogan one night wouldn’t make Vince look any more or any less respectable.

  7. I don’t think Vince is a piece of shit for it or that he should have to bring Hogan back for a mild pop but I do agree the company is hypocritical right now with Hogan considering (as noted) Snuka’s situation and others who’ve done questionable things and I’m sure his shareholders aren’t fans of discussing murderers on their programming – they just don’t realize the Snuka thing as he doesn’t have the name recognition Hogan has. They (shareholders) also aren’t fans of current talent being involved in leaked gang bang video, I’m thinking, but it’s basically overlook when desired…I also think Hogan is thinking more for a program that amounts to more than Raw 25 and they could make money from a program BUT I’d say the voices are louder in relation to Hogan’s situation because his name is so branded.

  8. an open racist yet he has lots of black friends and even black celebs who came to his defense for that phone call. i mean just because you say a racist word doesn’t mean youre an actual racist or else pretty much every teen and adult on this planet would be considered a racist then. he got pissed off on the phone talking to his daughter because she was hanging around a bunch of thugs at the time and said to her that she doesn’t need to be hanging around those n*****. people say stuff out of anger sometimes that they regret saying. it happens to even the best of us, but what he said isn’t a big deal, it boils down to who he is which is why it was a big deal. i mean if someone like you or i said what hogan said no one would even give a crap, because we aren’t a celebrity and that’s what it boiled down to.

  9. What did he do here? Answer interview questions that may have been even asked somewhere he was at the time. I would go to far as to say this is the least amount of heard about Hogan in years and really, go back through WV and look at how little he is mentioned anywhere in relation to news. I’m not a fan of Hogan in any way, shape or form and am happy we don’t here as much about him but if he wanted, he could be in the news daily with something or other so is he really doing anything to keep his name in the news? Or is it that you simply don’t like him and his connection to wrestling?

  10. No no that isn’t funny it isn’t true

    Most the mania crowd are smart wrestling fans

    And hulk Hogan actually can’t wrestle he hasn’t put a good match on in his career
    And he’d get found out

    He wouldn’t tear down a paper wall …

    He is overated as hell

  11. I will never forgive that piece of crap over what he said about the young guy that was basically killed (perm vegetative state) by his son and his driving. Talking shit and trying to make his son as the victim and that it was gods doing made me lose anything I ever thought of him and if I never see him with wwe again it will be too soon. I dont care about whether he is a racist or not, he was done long before that for me.

  12. He doesn’t have to be ric flair/shawn michaels/ ricky steamboat when he wrestles. Hes a story teller he gets the crowd into his matches and people love it.

    Look you can know how to do the arm bar 300 different ways and make every wrestler look like dog poo but it doesnt matter if nobody cares.

  13. Confusing, are you saying the mania crowd just became smart since his last appearance because every appearance he has had a massive pop and at a time when he was almost done he even had a bigger pop than the Rock and the crowd turned him face on the spot? So, are you saying he couldn’t wrestle than or can’t just in the last few years? Because what you’re saying wouldn’t happen because the crowd knows he can’t wrestle has happened every single time he has returned? BTW, I agree if you’re comparing Hogan to great in ring performers from a wrasslin’ perspective that Hogan can’t hold their tights and I’ve never been a fan but his cheesey promo skills when cheesy promo skills were needed and his in-ring storytelling ability have more than made up for it the eyes of most fans and most see him as a big part of how wrestling became national and more available to viewers.

  14. in all fairness he was hes son, most parents will do anything to try to protect their kid. Do you have children?

  15. exactly, you can be the worlds best wrestler and that doesnt mean you draw the biggest crowds, Dean Malenko is a huge example, now that man knew wrestling holds
