It's been rumored for a while that WWE officials may be waiting for the right time to bring him back, and some fans have wondered if Hogan could be showing up on the Raw 25th anniversary show. Hulk - whose real name is Terry Bollea - says he hasn't returned Stone's calls or the various calls from others echoing the same sentiment.

"They want me to run for governor, they want me to run for mayor", the Hulkster told TMZ's Harvey Levin (via The Hill.) "At the end of the day, I'm just so confused because it's like watching the politicians - the Democrats and the Republicans - it's like nobody wants to work together".

Seriously, this has been somewhat of a thing ever since former Trump advisor Roger Stone said he'd like to see Hogan run against Florida governor Rick Scott in a hypothetical Republican primary.

He added that he didn't want to be a part of the "chaos" between Republicans and Democrats, which he compared to a wrestling match. It is believed that he will challenge incumbent Florida Sen. Scott has yet to formally announce his bid, but it's expected he'll challenge current Senator Bill Nelson, who has served the state in the Senate since 2001. "I'm so excited about those kids", Hogan said.

Hulk Hogan is a big celebrity in the United States, but is he really qualified to run for office?

The ex-WWE star could face an uphill battle with any Senate bid.

Hogan was purportedly caught on tape in 2015 using racial epithets to describe his daughter's boyfriend, and then said he was "a racist to a point", according to the New York Daily News.

In 2016, he settled with Gawker for $31 million in a lawsuit after the media outlet released a sex tape featuring him.

Despite his confidence over a potential political career, Hogan has had no shortage of negative press in recent years. "I'm about ready to jump on a plane and fly to Japan and get involved with that Bullet Club, man".
