Hulk Hogan and WWE reached a truce last year after a long distant standoff. Hogan is now making regular appearances and is set to be a part of the upcoming Crown Jewel as his team will face Flair’s team in Saudi Arabia.
“The Immortal” Hulk Hogan was interviewed by LA Times where he surprisingly revealed his desire for a retirement match at WrestleMania 36 in his hometown of Tampa, Florida. He also added that he spoke to Vince McMahon regarding the same. He said:
“I talked to Vince, and I said I really don’t know if I could live with myself knowing my last match was with TNA [Total Nonstop Action Wrestling],” he said. “If I can get fixed, I pray I can have one more match. I told Vince, ‘When I get through this back surgery, I’m going to get in the best shape of my life and we’re going to talk about me having one last retirement match.’
Hogan also revealed that he would like to wrestle Vince McMahon in his final bout which would mark a rematch from their match at WrestleMania 19. He said:
“I’d love for it to be against Vince,” he said. “I had such a great time with him in the ring at WrestleMania 19. I had no idea what to expect from him, but he’s a great bad guy. His timing is great. I loved wrestling him, but everything he does hurts. When you’re in the ring with someone and they’re hurting you, you kind of pinch them on the wrist, and the whole match I was doing that to Vince. I was like, ‘Vince, take it easy!’ Everything he does hurts, but I’d like to get in the ring with him one more time for my last match. That would be perfect.”
