It is beginning to look more and more like Hulk Hogan may get that one more match that he’s been hoping to get. Apparently, Vince McMahon has given the go-ahead for Hogan to have a send-off match at WrestleMania 32 next year, and that would mean the Hulkster’s last ever match would be for WWE. Now, does this mean that next year’s big event could see the retirement matches of both Hulk Hogan and The Undertaker?
According to WrestleZone, Hogan had a press conference in Australia yesterday and the subject of WrestleMania 32 was brought up. That was when Hogan talked about WWE trying to break the indoor attendance record and he wanted to be a part of it.
“Next year, WrestleMania is going to be where the Dallas Cowboys play at the AT&T stadium and next year they’re going to try to break my indoor attendance record.”
Obviously, Hogan wants to be a bigger part of it than just a guest host or something like that. Well, even though it’s still close to a year away, it seems as if the wrestling legend has already gotten the go-ahead from Vince McMahon to have one more match.
“So, I stopped Vince McMahon in the hallway and said, ‘Let me tell you something brother, there’s no way you’re running WrestleMania next year without Hulk Hogan on the card. Whether it’s for my last hurrah and it’s my retirement match, whether it’s for my next run or whether it’s to just beat whoever’s got the WWE title and become the champion again. If you guys are in that stadium next year, I’m going to be there.’ And Vince McMahon shook my hand and said, ‘I look forward to it.’”
McMahon and WWE have yet to personally comment on the possibility of Hogan getting back into the ring. Actually, if it is true, they may not say anything until much later as they probably wouldn’t want to spoil Hogan’s in-ring return any more than it already has been.
Hogan did say that he’s “thinking very positively about getting back in the ring” and has a dream of winning the WWE title. It would be a huge thing to do in front of the possible 100,000 people in attendance at WrestleMania 32, as Fansided predicts.
Should Hogan end up getting one more match, it would have to be after doctors medically clear him. Even then, he would likely be placed in a tag-team match of some kind.
Should Hulk Hogan have one more match at WrestleMania 32, that event could be the big send-off for both he and The Undertaker as it is expected to be the retirement match for the “Dead Man” as well. Vince McMahon will likely have final say on this, but it may be a while until he says anything at all.
