It does not take much to get WWE pro wrestling legend Hulk Hogan on stage as he did so with Dave Chappelle in Tampa, Fla. Hogan and Chappelle were photographed alongside Sky Hogan, Hulk’s new wife. Also during this weekend, Hogan hit the stage with country music star Jason Aldean. Hogan even posted pictures of himself and Sky with the Aldeans, too.
Hogan probably will not be returning to a wrestling ring in action anytime soon. He’s suffered a lot of injuries over the years and also has a number of surgeries in his history.
For pro wrestling fans, the name Hulk Hogan is synonymous with the 1980s industry boom. Hogan was in the right place at the right time with Vince McMahon. He was the big star of the first WrestleMania at Madison Square Garden. Hogan also would parlay that success into a movie role in Rocky II opposite Sylvester Stallone.
Hulk Hogan Has Wrestled for Almost Every Promotion
Fans also know that Hogan has wrestled for pretty much every major pro wrestling organization in the world. He even has spent time wrestling in Japan, where fans look at wrestling differently from American crowds. Among the feuds that Hogan has had in his in-ring career include with Roddy Piper, The Iron Sheik, The Ultimate Warrior, and Andre the Giant.
At one point, Hogan changed from a “babyface” fan favorite to a “heel” bad guy. He went by the moniker of “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan. Hogan formed a faction in TNA Wrestling, too.
Recently, Hogan sat down for an interview with Chris Van Vliet. In it, the wrestler talks about what the future looks like for him. And he did have a little news for all of the Hulkamaniacs out there
“You know, I still work with the WWE all the time,” Hogan said, according to WrestleZone. “I just renewed my deal with them, you know. And [Does that mean, we can hear your music hit sometime soon]. I hope so. It’s always fun to go out there. And maybe I can hang on to one of the wrestlers to get me out to the ring.”
“But it’s really crazy. Because when I was the world’s champion, you know, we sold a ton of merchandise. We didn’t have the vehicle to the internet and the stuff that they have nowadays. But we sold a lot of stuff you know, back in the day. The cartoons were very supportive of the merchandise and stuff like that,” Hulk Hogan said.
Of course, Hogan has had his personal issues, too. One question that some fans might want an answer to is if Hogan would even think about signing on with Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling company. There has not been any formal notice of it taking place. Yet Khan recently welcomed “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair to his promotion. Could the Hulkster be far behind Slick Ric? We will have to wait and see.
