WWE Issues Statement on Hulk Hogan

Hulk Hogan recently took part in an interview with the Washington Post where he spoke of his current relationship with WWE. In response, WWE issued a statement on their decision to distance themselves from the 6x WWE champion.

Hogan had this to say regarding possibly appearing on the Monday Night Raw 25th anniversary show next week:

“Brother, if I’m not there, I’ll definitely be there in spirit,” Hogan said. “One way or the other, Hulk Hogan influenced each and every one of those guys you’re going to see on TV Monday night. And that includes Vince McMahon, too.”

Hogan has been banished from the company for the last 3 years, the result of public backlash following a series of leaked audio recording which featured Hogan using racist language. He successfully sued Gawker for $140 million as a result.

“I’m 64 years old and right now I could go out and tear WrestleMania down,” Hogan said. “I might have that one more match where I really beat the hell out of Vince. I’ve still got one in me.

“I don’t know if they want me back,” he said. “I think the fans want me back, I think that I’m part of that company from the ground up. Triple H I know is a huge fan of the guys that gave their blood, sweat and tears and their personal life to make this happen. I know Triple H would love to see me back on the inside again.”

WWE issued the following statement in regards to their decision to separate themselves from Hogan:

“At this time, WWE remains committed to its decision,”
