Hogan Wants to be More Involved with WWE

Mar 9, 2019 - by James Walsh

The Tampa Bay Times spoke with WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan, while he was in the city for the recent WrestleMania 36 press conference. The event is being held in Tampa Bay, Florida in April 2020. Hogan said he wanted an active role with WWE. 

When asked about his future with WWE Hogan stated the following: 

“I’m not really sure. I can’t wrestle anymore because nine back surgeries, two fake knees, two fake hips. … I’ve had 17 surgeries in the last ten years. I kinda missed the memo on the ‘fake’ part [of wrestling] … Vince [McMahon] has this master plan. And I don’t mind being the hood ornament, and I don’t mind being the Babe Ruth of the promotion, but Vince is putting together a whole new thing. … I still feel like I’m 20 in my head, but my body’s telling me, ‘Easy, brother.’ I’m not sure what the title is, but hopefully really soon I’ll be back and really, really active.” 

WWE reinstated Hulk Hogan into the WWE Hall of Fame in July 2018 in what was retroactively called a “three-year suspension” due to racist remarks he made during a rant that were leaked online.
