It's been nearly eight years since Hulk Hogan wrestled his last match, but the WWE Hall of Famer has made it clear that he wants one more showdown in the middle of the ring.
The WWE icon recently said in an interview with the Los Angeles Times that he's talked to Vince McMahon about possibly doing one last match. Hogan added that if his back surgery goes well, the idea of him coming back for one more bout will be entertained.
Not only that, but Hogan added that he wants McMahon to be his opponent in a potential retirement match. WrestleMania 36 will take place in Hogan's hometown of Tampa Bay, Florida - and the two already have a history together on the Grandest Stage of Them All. They clashed at WrestleMania XIX, where Hogan defeated McMahon in a street fight.
A Hogan and McMahon match is far from certain to happen, but betting odds have already been released for the match. BetOnline (h/t Ringside News) lists Hogan as a -300 favorite, while McMahon is a +200 underdog.
The match is by no means a guarantee to happen, however. Hogan is 66 years of age, and his back surgery has to be successful if there's any hope of doing one more match. Vince is also 74 years of age, and it's unknown if he'd be interesting in having another match himself.
Hogan's last match took place for TNA on Jan. 27, 2012, where he, Sting and James Storm defeated Kurt Angle, Bully Ray and Bobby Roode. His last WWE match was against Randy Orton at the 2007 SummerSlam pay-per-view.
Vince Is The Perfect Opponent For Hogan
Hogan and the WWE chairman have a long history together. They spent ample time in building up WWE during the '80s, but they also had a complicated working relationship - with The Hulkster leaving WWE numerous times throughout the decades. That's why Vince himself is an excellent choice for Hogan in the latter's final match.
