David Dexter reports that Hulk Hogan recently appeared on Busted Open Radio. Here are the highlights…
On Hulk’s knee and overall health: “Thursday was a month, so a month and two and a half days for the old knee replacement, so I think I’m doing good. I saw some other wrestlers that had some knee replacements done and around the same time, I feel like Tarzan here all of a sudden, they said they weren’t even going to be able to walk around for eight or nine weeks, so I’m a little bit ahead of schedule. The weird thing is, now I got two new knees, two new hips; after eight back surgeries my backs fixed, I think I should be getting a title shot pretty soon. The oldest Heavyweight Champion of the world.”

David Dexter reports that Hulk Hogan recently spoke to Sky News Radio while promoting TNA’s UK tour.
Check out the highlights of the interview:
On wrestling again: “Well, I’ve learned in this business to never say never. As time goes by, I live vicariously through the younger talent. I was telling my wife Jennifer the other day that I’m in the U.K. and I can’t believe that I’m not ego-talking and I’m not the main event. I can’t believe I’m not wrestling Kurt Angle or I can’t believe I’m not wrestling Jeff Hardy. But, that was just the young heart talking. Then, I took a good look in the mirror and I realized that the old man couldn’t do it. I mean, I never say never. If there was a situation where my daughter Brooke might get in a bad spot or something goes awry, you never know. I could roll in there, pick up a steel chair or throw a punch or something. So, you can never say never.”
Hulk Hogan appeared on Busted Open, which airs every Monday and Wednesday on Sirius 92 and XM 207 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. Highlights from the interview are as follows:
Sex Tape: “I actually came to New York City on a trip that was already booked and planned to promote our new timeslot, 8pm on Spike for our show on Impact, and also pump our Super Bowl of wrestling, Bound for Glory. All of sudden, out of nowhere, this tape gets released and it was game changer. I had options, stay home, tail between my legs, not come up here, but that’s not me. It’s not my deal. If I did something, I’m accountable, and if I didn’t do it I’ll tell you the truth. That’s who I am, good or bad. So I’m here brother.”
