Hulk Hogan‘s in-career has spanned over 30 years but he hasn’t quite wrestled his last match yet, well, not in WWE at least.
Hogan’s final WWE match was against Randy Orton at SummerSlam (2006) after which he went to TNA. On February 21, 2013, The Hulkster worked the last match of his career under IMPACT’s roof.
During a recent interview with Wrestling Academy, ‘The Immortal’ revealed that he can’t live with the fact that his final match was in TNA/IMPACT and not WWE. As a matter of fact, Hogan wants to retire in Vince McMahon‘s company and the same could be happening very soon.
“I’ve been talking to Vince McMahon. History is very important to me. I’ve had a very long career and part of my career was with a very, very small company and a very gracious lady called Dixie Carter in TNA and I had one of my — actually my last match there. That’s hard for me to live with. I want my last match to be in WWE.”
The 12-time World Champion has set his sights on WrestleMania and is rigorously discussing with McMahon to ensure he retires properly next April.
“I’ve been pushing and negotiating very hard and I’m actually healthy, I’m in very good shape. Little bit under 300 pounds, maybe 295 pounds. I’m getting ready. I’m going to have one little tiny surgery on my back, maybe take me a couple of months to recover, but I’ve got my eyes set for WrestleMania.”
Hogan underwent surgery last week and is doing well at the moment. He claims the surgery would get him back in good enough shape to wrestle again. The Hulkster also seems to have chosen his opponent for his farewell match at WrestleMania – that man is none other than Mr. McMahon himself!
“The one I’d love to get in the ring with if I only had one person would be Vince McMahon. I’m very sick of his stuff too.”
Let’s see if Vince takes up on Hulk’s challenge at the Showcase Of Immortals next year.
