WWE: Hulk Hogan makes astonishing WrestleMania 32 claim

Published 74 Comments

In the aftermath of WrestleMania 31 just about everyone agreed that the WWE had put on a hell of a show - some even talking about the Levi's Stadium event as one of the best 'Manias ever.

But, whilst there is no doubt that it was a spectacular occasion, those in charge of the WWE are never ones to rest on their laurels. Indeed, they have long been talking up next year's WrestleMania 32 in Texas as a record-breaking event.

Big update

One way to ensure the AT&T Stadium event tops the lot is to round up as many of WWE's biggest names as possible for the night's action. So Hulk Hogan's comments in a press conference this week should definitely grab everyone's attention.

Hogan was speaking at an event in Australia to promote WWE's impending tour of the nation:

"Next year they're going to try and break my (WrestleMania indoor attendance) record. So I stopped Vince McMahon in the hallway and I said, 'let me tell you something...there's no way you're running WrestleMania next year without Hulk Hogan on the card.'"

"Whether it is for my last hurrah and it's my retirement match. Whether it's for my next run, or whether it's just to beat whoever has the title and become the champion again. If you guys are in that stadium next year, I am going to be there."

Hulk Hogan is not a man who is easily deterred when he has his mind set on something and, fortunately for the WWE Universe, it looks like Vince is on board.

"He (Vince McMahon) took my hand and he said I look forward to it."

Real chance

Hulk Hogan has been involved in plenty of big WWE events in recent times where his position hasn't surpassed much more than a glorified cheerleader.

WrestleMania 32 though could be very different - the prospect of Hulkamania fans getting to see their idol fighting in the ring once again now a very real possibility. Hogan himself shed some light on what he has to do to convince the powers that be. 

In the same interview, the veteran wrestler said that Vince McMahon had told him that, if he passes a physical in the run up to 'Mania 32 in 2016, then he can wrestle in front of what could be well over 90,000 fans in Dallas.
