Hulk Hogan Reveals Who He Was Supposed to Face at WrestleMania 24, Names His Current Dream Opponent

WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan, who noted on social media that he will not be present at WrestleMania 34 this year in New Orleans, recently spoke with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated’s Extra Mustard.

During the interview, Hogan had the following to say on a WrestleMania dream match:

“If I could go back and wrestle one guy, it would be Cena,” said Hogan. “That was the match that was supposed to happen in Orlando [at WrestleMania 24]. I’d had my second or third back surgery, and when I was on the phone talking to Vince, my back went out again. That is a match I’d have loved to do, but I’d still love to get in the ring one more time with The Rock again. That match was so electric.”

On his favorite WrestleMania matches, Hogan offered the following:

“There are a couple matches that I really love,” said Hogan. “There is WrestleMania I, which probably happened before [most current fans’ parents’]were born. “There’s The Rock match, which was really cool, but the one match that really set the table, the one match that etched the WWF in stone, the one match that built Titan Towers and set the whole company was the WrestleMania III match with Andre the Giant.

“That’s the match, brother. That was the match that made people realize this wrestling company, the WWE, was not going anywhere.”
