Not that any of us were expecting Hulk Hogan to hit the ropes at WrestleMania 30, but just to cross all the “T”s, the WWE gave Hogan their physical examination…and thusly decided not to book him in a ‘Mania match.
Also, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Hogan won’t be put into any storyline that requires him to get physical. So he won’t even, say, get to clear the ring of bad guys if they get up in his face. It’s looking more and more likely that the main reason he’ll be a part of the show is as someone honored in the HoF (as there are still strong reports saying the first Main Event match from the first WrestleMania will be inducted).
