Initially, the idea was to bring Hulk Hogan back to WWE and have him work a match at Wrestlemania 30, but the medical staff for the company refused to let that happen, so officials backstage are now working on a plan to have Hogan be the host of the pay per view instead.
While WWE is still mulling over the candidates to induct the Ultimate Warrior into the hall of fame during Wrestlemania 30 weekend, CM Punk has revealed that he has asked management for the role. The feeling backstage is that officials are hoping to get Hulk Hogan to do it.
"Same thing. I always had good experiences with Hulk. I had opportunities to be on camera with him and in the ring with him and I felt like he definitely wanted the best out of all of us. If he comes back, that'd be great, but if not, I understand. He's got his career that he still sort of wants to do and creative things he still wants to do in his life before he completely gets out of wrestling. Whatever's best for him, I wish him good luck."
"Um I think Bischoff is still around, I think it's just a production capacity. I think with Hogan, some people think he had more clout than he did. I think they really wanted him to do a bit more but I think he just didn't want to really do more at this time. As far as Hogan as a person, cool cat. As far as working with him, I wouldn't know. I never worked with them. I never see them, I never talk to them. When they just asked me 'This is what we need from you' I did it and that was that."
"I'm not that close to Hogan and never have been. He's a businessman. End of story."
