WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan has recently undergone surgery on his back. It was mandatory to remove the battle scars from the past.
A lot of hardware was finally removed from the vertebrae region no November 12th which means the legends are in no shape to compete in the ring. But he is still hoping for one last WWE match at the biggest event of them all.
The next edition of WrestleMania takes place in the hometown of Hulk Hogan that is in Tampa, Florida. This is why the Hulkster has been campaigning for the last match of his career.
He thinks that he is in good shape to pull off one final match. However, it still depends on whether Vince McMahon would like to insert the legend into a match at this point in his career.
Hulk Hogan spoke with a YouTube channel based in Saudi Arabia during the WWE tour in the Kingdom last month for the Crown Jewel event.
The legendary name was asked about whether an in-ring return is possible and if he will be ready for a comeback one day.
He came up with a positive answer. Also, he confirmed of having talks with Vince McMahon to finalize a potential deal that could culminate a WrestleMania match in April,
“So, I’ve been pushing and negotiating very hard and I’m getting very, very healthy again. I’m in good shape. I’m a little bit under 300 pounds, maybe 295 pounds, and I’m getting ready.
I’m going to have one little teeny surgery on my back, it’ll take me a couple of months to recover, but I’ve got my eyes focused on WrestleMania.” (courtesy wrestlingINC.com)
He also gave a significant reason for demanding this matchup in the WWE. He won’t be happy to live with the memory that his last match took place in TNA,
“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.”
Speaking of history, the last match of Hulk Hogan took place at the Bound For Glory pay-per-view on October 16, 2011.
He lost to another WWE Hall of Famer Sting in a match that witnessed TNA owner Dixie Carter gaining storyline control of the company if The Stinger won. It appeared to be the final televised match for the Immortal One.
Hulk Hogan competed in another match after this where he teamed up with Sting and James Storm in a six-man tag team 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, and January 27, 2012.
