WWE Quickly Quashes Hulk Hogan's Claim About Nick Hogan's Alleged Involvement At WrestleMania 39

Hulk Hogan may have made something up, brother

From claiming he wrestled for 400 days in one year to suggesting he could have been a member of Metallica, Hulk Hogan has become infamous within professional wrestling for his constant lies. 

Hogan received the opportunity to provide insight into his version of the world and his past in an interview with Chris Van Vliet, during which the WWE Hall of Famer claimed there were talks for his son Nick Hogan to work with Shane McMahon at WrestleMania 39. 

"Shane called me and he sent me a picture from Madison Square Garden. I guess they have a Hall of Fame walk in there. Piper's boots are in there and some of my stuff is there, so Shane sent me a picture of him standing in front of my stuff saying, 'Hey old-timer. Do you still have one left in you?' I'm like, 'Okay, what are you thinking?' He said, 'Well, I didn't know if you had one left in your or maybe a surrogate such as Nick', my son. We started talking and I said the only way I could do anything was if I was in the middle of the ring and you came to me because I can't run. I can't hit the ropes. I have a hard time walking distance. Taking a bump, if I got up, I would have to roll to my left. I can't roll to my right. The only way I can get up is if I roll to my left to get up for some reason, so it would be a stretch," The Hulkster said.

"Nick, who was in Rikishi's school for a couple years, he was in there with Rusev and all those guys, and I would go out to California and watch him. Nick had it figured out and then he blew both of his shoulders out. I said, 'I don't know. There's a possibility of doing something, whatever the storyline is, whether Nick is a heel and, 'You destroyed my father's career so I'm going to destroy your personal life.' I don't know. There's a million ways to do it, but then a couple weeks later, Shane got hurt or something with his quad. (Chris Van Vliet pointed out that it was at WrestleMania). So anyway, that whole idea, I just never heard from them again, so that was pretty much it."

WWE have since denied Nick Hogan was ever considered for WrestleMania 39, with a WWE higher-up telling Fightful Select: "In no way is that true. I can't think of a time in the last 13 or 14 years that Nick Hogan's name was brought up at all, much less in a creative capacity. There has never been a serious conversation about him being involved in anything that I can think of. Even when Hulk would mention him being involved in things, there just wasn't an interest or a benefit to that."

The higher-up also noted that Shane McMahon has had some "wacky" ideas but they doubt even he would want to do an angle or match with Nick Hogan at WrestleMania.
