hulk hoganWWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan was recently a guest on The Buzz with Jimmy Traina, and he talked about a number of topics, including training for a comeback, the possibility of John Cena turning heel, and more.

You can read a few excerpts from the show below:

Hogan on making a comeback, and who he might face:

“I am training on a personal level and trying to get to a point where I would feel confident enough to go in and tear the roof off the place again. “

“John Cena would be the guy I would love to wrestle.”

Hogan on John Cena heel turn:

“It’s not just about ‘rasslin’ anymore. It’s a bigger business. It’s more about entertainment, and across the board, how all the dominoes fall when you make a knee-jerk reaction like that, so I really can’t answer that question anymore.”

Hogan on what WCW could’ve done differently:

“I think WCW still would be around if they’d have kept their focus on their product and not what Vince was doing. You start wanting to compete with the monster, the monster might eat you. I think they were both separate entities. The Monday Night Wars were great, but I think the focus was more ego driven. ‘We wanna beat the WWE.’ I never had that thought in my head.”

Hogan on who the bigger star is: The Rock or himself?

“If you’re gonna ask me who the bigger star was in the wrestling business, I’m gonna say me. If you’re gonna say who’s the bigger star in Hollywood, I gotta say The Rock.”
