Hulk Hogan On Potential In-Ring Return: “I’m Too Old To Wrestle”


WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan spoke with People about various topics including his recent return to Monday Night Raw in order to honor the late great WWE Hall of Famer Gene Okerlund, who recently passed away, and more. Here are the highlights:

Where he is in life today vs. then: “People are all human and they make mistakes, so it’s about forgiving people and learning and growing.  I’m definitely not in the same place I was 12 or 13 years ago, you know, when I said such stupid words, what came out of my head. That’s not who I am.”

Potentially returning to the ring as a wrestler, “I’m too old to wrestle. I embarrassed myself enough out there by moving too slow, so I don’t want to get back in there again.  I don’t think I could. I could probably wrestle somebody like John Cena or Vince McMahon, but as soon as I’d be done they’d be taking me straight to the hospital to fix something … the body’s too worn out for that.”

Okerlund’s passing: “It felt like my Adam’s apple went backward or something, I couldn’t catch my breath. I guess my wife thought I was having a heart attack. It hit me so hard cause I just talked to him a couple weeks before about getting together the weekend when I came back from New Years.”
