Hulk Hogan is considered by many to be the greatest professional wrestler of all-time as he helped make the industry in the modern era’s popularity.
With the event he helped make famous, WrestleMania, only mere weeks away, he sat down with HannibalTV for an exclusive interview. There have been rumblings in recent weeks that “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and Vince Mcmahon will be returning to the ring at the Superbowl of wrestling event.
Hulk Hogan was also asked by Vince Mcmahon’s son, Shane Mcmahon, if he had one more match left in him. Hogan last had a regular schedule years ago when he went up against the likes of Brock Lesnar in his rookie year and faced off against Randy Orton. So, the Hulkster has some knowledge of the new stars of today. Hulk Hogan’s last WWE match was against Randy Orton at SummerSlam in 2006.
Shane, how can I put this to you in a WAY you can understand. The dude RETIRED for a reason. He’s had so many back surgeries, that I can’t even count on one hand.
And you want him to Wrestle??

The man also known as “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan, made it clear that he does not have one more match in him. He says, “No, no, no, no, no,” because “in the last ten years I have had twenty three surgeries.” He explained the surgeries included his back and both knees.
The “Babe Ruth Of Wrestling” gave his list of his top competitors and had Andre “The Giant” at the top of his list. In the 1980’s, the two wrestling legends made history with an indoor record crowd of 93,172 fans coming to the Silverdome in Detroit to be entertained by their championship match-up.
A year later in 1988, Hogan and Andre would set the North American record for pro wrestling viewing of a match with over 33 million eyeballs.
