Hulk Hogan Talks Failed WWE Return And Match With John Cena, Says He Was Afraid To Call Vince

As noted earlier, Fighting Spirit Magazine has a six-page interview with Hulk Hogan in their latest issue. During the interview, Hogan discussed how unnecessary surgeries from the Laser Spine Institute in Tampa prevented a career-ending match with John Cena from taking place.

"It was part of a 25-year deal (with WWE)", Hogan said. "I was filming Hogan Knows Best, and Vince McMahon and I started negotiating. It was at a time when I was coming back for the one-off shows with Shawn (Michaels) and Randy (Orton).

"But it's wrong about Cena that was just part of the whole thing where I would show up once in a while and wrestle. It was one of those times where Vince and I were in love one day, and fighting the next. We were negotiating a 25-year deal, and part of it was me wrestling Cena in Orlando at Wrestlemania. I called Vince and said, 'I'm good to go'. I'd just had my first back surgery, and everything was supposed to be perfect, but just before I was due on TV, my back went. I was scared to call Vince, but when I did, I was like, 'Dude, my back has gone out again'. After more surgeries, instead of a morphine pump to ease the pain, they inserted a battery (into my back) that was made by NASA for the space shuttle, and lasts forever."

The six-page interview with Hulk Hogan is in Issue 90 of FSM, available now from WH Smiths and Easons in the UK and Ireland, and for iPhone/iPad and Android via FightingSpiritMagazine.co.uk.
