WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan was in the news this week once he appeared on this week’s Monday Night RAW episode and is back in the headlines after doing a recent interview with Sports Illustrated.
In this discussion, the pro wrestling legend gave his take on the future of former IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega and if WWE is the right fit for him.
Omega made big news this week once he mentioned that he was “stepping away” from NJPW (New Japan Pro Wrestling) which led to speculation that he could be headed to the WWE or potentially sign with AEW. Hogan talked about what he thinks it would mean if Omega decided to join the WWE.
“It’s tough to go your whole life without eating at McDonald’s or riding in a Chevrolet,” said Hogan. “If you don’t touch on the WWE, the story’s not complete. But maybe Kenny could be the exception.”
It should be noted that Omega is still under contract with New Japan Pro Wrestling until his contract expires on January 31.
Hogan would continue by talking about how just like with Omega, he started to become a big star in Japan. He would reflect on his journey in the country back in 1978 and how he fell in love with it but mentioned how times were different back then. You can read the full interview here.
