WWE Comments on Hulk Hogan, Hulk Hogan Comments on WWE
There’s an article about Hulk Hogan in the Associated Press and how he hasn’t been invited to the 25th anniversary Raw on Monday.
The AP asked WWE and this is what they said:
“At this time, WWE remains committed to its decision,” the company said in a statement.
“At this time” leaves an opening for the future, of course, and it has been rumored that Hogan’s name has been talked about within WWE recently. It seems like some people in WWE would like to bring him back, but it’s a matter of whether or not there would be backlash in the media and from advertisers.
Hogan had this to say about the situation:
“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.”
On not being invited to Raw 25:
“Brother, if I’m not there, I’ll definitely be there in spirit. One way or the other, Hulk Hogan influenced each and every one of those guys you’re going to see on TV Monday night. And that includes Vince McMahon, too.”
On the Gawker tape and being fired by WWE:
“It devastated me. The bottom dropped out. It was just a situation that was unexpected; didn’t even know it was going on at the time. I was blindsided by it.”
On loving the Bullet Club in NJPW:
“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.”
