Update On Hulk Hogan’s Future With WWE/TNA, WWE Hall of Fame & WM30
With Hulk Hogan currently a free agent, most people within WWE believe that he’ll wind up back with TNA. That said, there is still interest in negotiating with Hogan to bring him in for WrestleMania XXX. At the end of the day, it’s going to come down to how much money TNA is willing to offer him.
There are plans to induct either Randy Savage or the Ultimate Warrior into the WWE Hall of Fame. In the event that either man is inducted, WWE wants Hulk Hogan to induct them.
WWE wants a big legend to be part of a match at WrestleMania, to help make the 30th anniversary show feel special and to help keep the buyrate over 1 million buys. With The Rock and Steve Austin most likely not wrestling, WWE could make Hogan a strong offer to get him on board. Last year’s WrestleMania numbers came in lower than expected and the feeling is that The Rock’s drawing power has diminished.
If WWE’s unable to get either Hogan, Rock or Austin to wrestle, another selling point for the show could be hyping the Undertaker’s match as his retirement match.
