Hulk Hogan is saying his prayers and taking his vitamins hoping for a return to the WWE … but The Hulkster says it’s not a done deal yet, despite reports.
“All these things say it’s imminent or rumors, that’s like saying ‘maybe, possibly, could be,’ Hogan said in new interview with BuffaloNews.com. “Until I’m back home with the WWE, I’m not home. Hopefully some day I can go back home and be with my family, the wrestlers and all the people I love. I just really, really hope it happens.”
As we previously reported, there have been recent talks between Hogan and WWE. A statement from the company confirmed that was the case, but noted he’s still not under contract.
A report from TMZ this month, however, claimed Hulk’s return is almost a done deal.
“Everybody gets knocked down,” Hogan told BuffaloNews. “A true champion gets back up and moves forward in a positive way. Nobody ever said life would be fair or you’d always make the right decisions, but through tenacity and a willingness to learn from your mistakes is what I’m all about.”
Writers note: If you add “well, let me tell you something Mean Gene” to the beginning of that quote and “BROTHER” at the end … you’ve got a damn good late ’80s Hulkamania promo.
