WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan has publicly stated that he wants to wrestle one last match.
Hogan recently conducted an untelevised interview with the Los Angeles Times after his appearance with the MLB on FOX pregame panel on October 4.
Hogan states he has already had conversations Vince McMahon about having one final match, possibly at WrestleMania 36, which will take place in his hometown Tampa, FL.
I talked to Vince [McMahon] 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, now IMPACT]… I pray I can have one more match… one last retirement match.’
Hogan has also expressed his desire to wrestle WWE Chairman Vince McMahon,
I’d love for it to be against Vince. I had such a great time with him in the ring at WrestleMania 19.
I had no idea what to expect from him [Vince], but he’s a great bad guy [heel]. His timing is great…. I’d like to get in the ring with him one more time for my last match. That would be perfect.
However, Hogan also expresses how he regrets using the ‘Leg Drop’ that has caused him back and hip injuries,
If I could change anything, it would be my finisher. I would never use the ‘Leg Drop’. All the back surgeries I’ve had are because of that damn leg drop. I had scoliosis, brother… I had the largest arms in the word and I should have used a ‘Sleeper Hold’ or another finisher with my arms.
Hogan has previously stated that he’s “too old” to wrestle but seems keen on one more match.
Hogan is 66 years old and has undergone seven “unsuccessful” back surgeries. He’s scheduled for an eighth soon.
Hogan was raised in Tampa and it’s only fitting for his very last match to be at “The Showcase of Immortals”; the event that he initially popularized in the 1980s.
WWE reinstated him last year and he has since returned to WWE television.
Hogan’s latest WWE appearance was on the September 30 season premiere of RAW, whereas he & Ric Flair promoted their multi-man tag team match for Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia on Halloween night.
