Looks like they're trying to drum up press for Austin/Hogan again. They've been teasing this for the last year now (with Hogan's HOF comment, then with Austin's this year).
By pure blind speculation on my part, it's always seemed that Hogan was game for the match, but Austin seems to be the hold-out. Hogan's comments seem to confirm that, but I'm sure health issues factor in here. Given that he nearly died for his last real match (vs Rock at WMXIX), I'm sure he's okay with sitting out of the ring for the rest of his life. Anyway, given the big bluff they pulled last year teasing this match, I don't have high hopes we'll ever see it.
I liked what they did with Hogan last year vs HBK, but I don't really see how much mileage they can get out of yet another Hogan comeback. I guess they can put him in there against Rey or Cena.
EDIT: Interesting to see Hogan's comments on HBK after their match.
I love Hogan. I think he has truly gone insane. Like Hogan would have jobbed to HBK. And it wasn't just Bret who didn't shake Hogan's hand at the HOF ceremony. I didn't see anyone outside of Gene Mean make contact with the Huckster, at least on what was televised. I'm starting to find Hogan as humorous as another insane former wrestler he mentioned, Warrior.
