WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan recently did an interview with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated where he talked about an interesting topic, which was the future of former IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega.
The star of NJPW has a big decision to make after he announced that he would be “stepping away” from the company as his contract with New Japan Pro Wrestling expires on January 31st.
“It’s tough to go your whole life without eating at McDonald’s or riding in a Chevrolet,” said Hogan. “If you don’t touch on the WWE, the story’s not complete. But maybe Kenny could be the exception.”
“I fell in love with Japan in 1978,” said the 65-year-old Hogan. “Times were different back then, there were no cell phones or internet. There was no cross-promotion of social media platforms, and you couldn’t watch my matches in Tokyo or Fukuoka or Osaka like you can now. I wasn’t married until December of ’83, and I hadn’t started a family yet, so in ’78 I was over there running hard.
