Hulk Hogan made his comeback to WWE earlier this year after the company lifted the three-year-long ban on him for the racist comments that he had made earlier. He was banned in 2015 but in 2018, he returned to the company and also opened the WWE Crown Jewel held on November 2 in Saudi Arabia. Apart from that, he was also re-inducted into WWE Hall of Fame after being dropped from the list.
Hulk Hogan’s son, Nick Hogan, to ask about the Hulkster’s trip to Saudi Arabia for WWE Crown Jewel and if Hogan will ever retire. Nick said the response to his Dad in Saudi Arabia reminded him of what “Hulkamania” was like in the U.S. during the 1980s.
“Well, first of all, everybody think it’s a joke, but he’s still like over 6’5″ and over 300 pounds. He’s just a monster. And he’s strong.
“It’s just insane. I don’t know. he always just says he loves it. He loves training. He loves the wrestling the business. I don’t think he’ll ever quit.”
Nick – who appeared with his family on reality shows ‘Hogan Knows Best’ and ‘Brooke Knows Best’ between 2005 and 2009 – revealed that he knew about the comeback before the event, and described it as a “home run”.
He added: “How cool is that? That is awesome. I knew a little bit before because, obviously, I can’t say anything.
“It was just so cool because he had never really been to the Middle East before, so this was his first time going over to the Middle East.
“So, it was really interesting for him to see the reaction to Hulkamania in the Middle East. It was just a home run all around. It was so cool.”
Hogan has made many comebacks to WWE and also held a the WWE/WCW Championship 12 times. In 2014, during his fourth comeback to WWE, he was interrupted by Brock Lesnar during his birthday celebrations, where former superstars were present in the ring along with Hogan.
For now, Hogan is now expected to make his presence felt in the company during events but an in-ring match at this age is something which looks unlikely. He made his pro-wrestling debut way back in 1977 and participated in arguably the biggest match in wrestling history when he took on Andre The Giant at WrestleMania 3.
