One of the best-known professional wrestlers, Hulk Hogan, came close to making a comeback at this year’s WrestleMania.
Vince McMahon’s son Shane contacted the legendary wrestler to see if «Hulkamania» would return to WWE.
Hogan’s wrestling career has been on hiatus since his appearance at a TNA house show nearly six years ago. He was part of a six-man tag team at that event.

Hogan said that McMahon referred to him as an «old man» when recalling their conversation.
«He [Shane] He’s like, ‘Hey, you got one more on you, man?'» Hogan said. «I said, ‘Take it easy on the old man stuff, bro… What you wanna do?'»

Hogan added that McMahon tried to talk him into getting back in the ring.
“He said, ‘All you have to do is stand in the middle of the ring, and I’ll come to you.’ I said, ‘Well, right now, my back needs a little more work. But that’s something we can talk about next year,’ Hogan said.
McMahon made a shock return to WWE during WrestleMania 39 at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles. But he ultimately couldn’t compete due to a torn quadriceps, which he suffered shortly before the fight began.
Hogan, however, hasn’t completely closed the door on his wrestling career, saying he’d like to compete in a «retirement match.»

«I always wanted to have a retirement game… I’m not moving like I should be,» he said.
‘So I’m going to keep working, keep training and do rehab and see where I am in about six months. All I’ve figured out in the wrestling business, bro, is never say never.»
