WWE Legend Hulk Hogan (real name – Terry Gene Bollea) celebrated his 67th birthday, yesterday. As seen in recent times, he’s still in shape and claimed jot to be done with wrestling, yet. As noted prior to WrestleMania 36, he was determined to compete in one last match within the WWE and he might still be hoping for the same.
As seen in the tweet posted on his official Twitter account, Hulk Hogan clearly noted that he’s not yet done with in-ring competition.
“I’ve been from MSG, the Silverdome and to the Moon, I love this beach and all I wanted was to live my life here, some stayed with me for the journey some left, to those that truly loved and believed in me thank you with all my heart, I’m not done yet BROTHER HH.”

After competing in WCW and WWE, from time to time, Hulk Hogan was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2005 by Sylvester Stallone. They first became friends while filming Rocky III together in 1981.
The Immortal One went to bad terms with WWE after the racism scandal, five years ago. In 2018, he was reinstated into the WWE Hall of Fame. He has always been a Hall of Famer since 2005 but his profile just wasn’t on the website between 2015 and 2018 due to the controversy.
Hulk Hogan underwent back surgery on November 12. He removed a few screws that were injected into his body to fix previously broken ribs from wrestling days. Thereafter, he got back to shape while hoping for one last WWE match at WrestleMania 36. It was supposed to take place in his hometown of Tampa, Florida but the coronavirus pandemic never let that happen.
As seen in a video during WWE’s Crown Jewel tour, The Hulkster spoke with a YouTube channel based in Saudi Arabia while the WWE roster was in the Kingdom. Hulk Hogan was asked about an in-ring return, and if he stated that he’s ready for a comeback one day.
“Yeah, I’ve been talking to Vince McMahon,” Hogan said of a possible return. “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 named Dixie Carter at TNA. I actually had my last match there. That’s hard for me to live with. I want my last match to be in the WWE.”
The last TNA TV match for Hulk Hogan took place at the Bound For Glory pay-per-view on October 16, 2011. He lost to WWE Hall of Famer Sting in a match that saw Dixie regain storyline control of the company if The Stinger won.
Hogan later teamed with Sting and James Storm in a six-man tag team match for a win over Bobby Roode and two more WWE Hall of Famers, Bubba Ray Dudley, and Kurt Angle, at the TNA UK, live events on January 26, 2012, and January 27, 2012.
