Hulk Hogan has re-entered the world of professional wrestling (or 'Sports Entertainment,' as Vince McMahon prefers to call it) after a long hiatus. Hogan, who was publicly disgraced by saying the n-word multiple times in a leaked sex tape, has recently been brought back into the WWE fold. Previously, the company expunged all reference to the wrestler from its catalog of products.
The Hulkster granted an interview with People, in which he discussed his life, his struggles with an angry public and his Gawker lawsuit, and also the prospects of him getting back in the ring. Sounds like Hulk is set to hang up his boots.
“I’m too old to wrestle. I embarrassed myself enough out there by moving too slow, so I don’t want to get back in there again,” he said in the interview. “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.”

The world laments not getting to see Hulk Hogan, 65, wrestle Vince McMahon, 73.
Hogan recently delivered a eulogy for 'Mean' Gene Okerlund, the legendary commentator and backstage interviewer who became an icon during wrestling's golden era.
The wrestler got visibly choked up before snapping back into character and cutting a promo.
Regarding Okerlund, he described the moment he learned he had lost his friend. “It felt like my Adam’s apple went backward or something, I couldn’t catch my breath. I guess my wife thought I was having a heart attack. It hit me so hard cause I just talked to him a couple weeks before about getting together the weekend when I came back from New Years.”
