Now Hogan has announced on Instagram that he will be appearing at the Hard Rock Cafe in Tampa, Florida along with Flair. The event will be hosted by Jimmy "Mouth of the South" Hart.
This look like a great opportunity for fans of both Flair and Hogan to have a chance to meet and talk with two of the all-time greats in the sport.
Hogan was also in the news recently when it was reported that Roger Stone, a former adviser of president Donald Trump wants him to run for U.S. Senate in the state of Florida, according to The Washington Post.
So maybe Hogan will start campaigning for a seat in the senate while at the Hard Rock Cafe with Flair.
It looks like Stone enjoys trying to get people with zero political experience to run for office.
“At the moment, I am more focused on persuading Hulk Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, to challenge Governor Rick Scott for the U.S. Senate nomination in 2018,” Stone told Slevin. “At a minimum, I hope to convince Hogan to body slam Scott in every debate. If the governor is under the impression that his personal responsibility for $1 billion in Medicaid fraud is no longer an issue, he’s wrong.”
The only other time that Hogan attempted to "run for office" was in 1998 after he announced that he was retiring from wrestling in order to run for president. Of course he wasn't serious. It was a stunt during his time with World Championship Wrestling that last only about a month.
It would be interesting to see which party Hogan would run under. My guess would be the republican party, since that's what Stone seems to back.
Hogan showed support for president Barack Obama back in 2008, but then backed Mitt Romney in 2012. He did tell Piers Morgan of CNN that he felt like Obama didn't make a difference and that he was looking for someone to come in and help out with unemployment as well as the national debt which is why he supported Romney in 2012.
Could anyone really take Hogan seriously as a senator? I'm not sure if he could get elected in Florida, the way Jessie Ventura was able to get elected as the governor of Minnesota back in 1999.
Former wrestler Ryhno also attempted to run for the Michigan House of Representatives, but ended up losing. It would be interesting to see what would happen if Hogan ends up running for a seat in the senate.
