Ryback - 'Right' time for Hulk Hogan to return to WWE
WWE Superstar Ryback is hoping Hall of Fame inductee Hulk Hogan returns to the company to appear at 'WrestleMania XXX' in New Orleans on April 6.
WWE Superstar Ryback says it ''feels right'' for Hulk Hogan to return for 'WrestleMania XXX'.
The 32-year-old professional wrestler - real name Ryan Reeves - is hoping rumours the legendary grappler is coming back to appear at the WWE's showpiece event in New Orleans on April 6 are true because he thinks Hulk will bring even more excitement to the show.
Ryback - who can be seen competing in the 'WWE Royal Rumble' this Sunday (27.01.14) , which is available in the UK on Sky Sports Box Office - told BANG Showbiz: ''To have a guy like Hulk Hogan come back for 'WrestleMania XXX' it just feels right. His impact on the WWE and the significance of his career in the WWE to where it is now, he played a big part of that. To have him back, and I don't know his physical condition or anything of that nature so I don't know what role he can play, but just to have someone like Hulk Hogan there in the building in New Orleans it just feels right. I'm hoping something can be done on that end.''
Ryback - who is due to join a host of other Superstars on the WWE UK tour in May 2014, tickets for which are now on sale at Bookingsdirect.com - is also excited about the Hall of Famer's potential return because he wants to meet Hulk, 60.
He added: ''He's one of the few guys I'm yet to meet so at that end it would be cool to have him as part of the show.''
Hulk hasn't been seen on WWE television since December 2007 and speculation has been rife for months he will return for the special anniversary of 'WrestleMania'.
The multi-time world champion competed at the very first event in 1985, tagging with Mr. T to wrestle the team of Rowdy Roddy Piper and 'Mr. Wonderful' Paul Orndorff.
