Hulk Hogan was welcomed back to the WWE with open arms earlier this month, appearing for the first time on their programming in the United States since March 2015.

We all know the controversy that surrounded the company terminating their business relationship with the Hulkster, but it has now all been brushed under the carpet.

It doesn't seem as though Hogan will be on television much aside from special occasions, but the WWE fans still react for him like they did 30 years ago.

As with any man whose wrestled in their career, they'll know it's very hard to step away from the profession that took over their livelihood, and for Hogan it's no different.

He last competed in 2012 at a live event in the UK when he worked for TNA Wrestling, little did we know the low-key show would be his final in-ring appearance.

Now being back in WWE's good books though brings the opportunity - despite being in his 60's now - of potentially one more match.

When Hogan was asked by People whether or not he would like to return though for a one-off, he was pretty definitive in his response.

"I'm too old to wrestle," Hogan bluntly stated, per WrestlingInc.

Hulk Hogan has commented on the chances of him stepping in the ring one more time.

"I embarrassed myself enough out there by moving too slow, so I don't want to get back in there again.

"I don't think I could. I could probably wrestle somebody like John Cena or Vince McMahon, but as soon as I'd be done they'd be taking me straight to the hospital to fix something … the body's too worn out for that."

Hogan's got a point, he's now 65 years of age but that hasn't stopped people taking bumps in the past - Vince McMahon still does occasionally.

But it really is for the best that Hogan stays away from the wrestling ring, no matter how tempting it probably is to get right back in there.
