- Hulk Hogan recently spoke with NOLA.com to promote WrestleMania XXX. Hogan also did a quick Q&A where he said if he could face anyone from today’s roster it would be John Cena, if he could face anyone from the 1980’s he didn’t get to face it would be Jake Roberts and his favorite WrestleMania match was Cena vs. The Rock from last year. Below are highlights from the interview:

Returning to WWE:
“When I came around the corner and the people saw me (the first night), it felt like I was standing behind a 747 and all the engines were firing. It was just so much energy, and the people were so loud, I went, ‘Wow. It still works.’ Second appearance was better. The crowd was electric. And then this last one in Brooklyn. I’m definitely cool now. There’s nothing to worry about. I’m OK.”

Why he says brother:
“It kind of started after WrestleMania I. As soon as we became mainstream, I would fly into cities and do newspapers and go to radio stations and just meet kids in hospitals. Sometimes, I was meeting up to 100 to 200 people a day. If you meet 10 people a day, it’s hard to remember everyone’s name. So as I was meeting a couple hundred people a day, the word brother just stuck because I couldn’t remember everybody’s names.”

His health:
“Everything’s good. My body kind of went through some drama with back surgery and stuff, but I’m pretty much patched up and ready to go. I feel like I got a shot in the arm when I came back to the WWE. So, I’m all charged up with gas and ready to rumble.”

    Personally i dont see why Bray can’t take out HH at WM or sometime and Hogan inlists Reigns (once free of Shield) to get Bray back at SS or something. The rub from HH will do great for RR and who knows after that, just an idea

  • Raul

    I believe that right now too but I fear down the line Vince and Hulk will see money signs in some crazy match for Hulk vs whomever and Vince will decide to take the risk. I’m sure both Vince and Hulk want his last match to be in a WWE ring even if it is like Bet ‘ last match where he beat Mix for the US title and then hand it over the next night.

  • D2K

    They won’t clear him to wrestle.

  • Raul

    He scares me, he sounds like a guy who really wants back in that ring. I would hate to see him get paralyzed because someone doesn’t stop him for his own good.
