Hulk Hogan wants back in WWE, WWE remains “committed to its decision”

By Jason Powell, Prowrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

Hulk Hogan told Dan Gelston of the Associated Press that he would like to return to WWE. “I don’t know if they want me back,” Hogan said. “I think the fans want me back. I think that I’m part of that company from the ground up. Triple H I know is a huge fan of the guys that gave their blood, sweat and tears and their personal life to make this happen. I know Triple H would love to see me back on the inside again.”

WWE issued the following statement to Gelston regarding Hogan’s status with the company: “At this time, WWE remains committed to its decision.” Read the full story at APNews.com.

Powell’s POV: The WWE statement certainly didn’t close the door on Hogan completely, but it certainly doesn’t seem like he’ll be appearing as a surprise at Monday’s Raw 25. Hogan even expressed interest in having a WrestleMania match against Vince McMahon. He even said he’s interested in working with Bullet Club in Japan if WWE is not interested. Is Hogan “All In”? Probably not.

  1. I loved Hogan as a kid and Hollywood Hogan during the Monday Night Wars, but Hogan never ever needs to be on WWE TV again. He got a nice goodbye with hosting WM 30, the birthday celebration, and the MSG Banner night. Either one of those could be used the the bookend to a Hogan DVD they produce later on.

    While he doesn’t need to be on TV again, I do think WWE should sign him to merchandising deal just so we can get action figures/t-shirts, etc, and so that he can be included in WWE 2K video games again.
