The first major boom period for WWE came in the 80s. This started when Hulk Hogan defeated The Iron Sheik for the WWE Championship in 1983. Since then ‘The Hulkster’ gave his blood, sweat, and tears to WWE to help Vince McMahon make the company the behemoth it is in the world. However, after all those years, Hogan is hinting at a partnership with Mr.McMahon once again.

The partnership won’t be for any wrestling-related shows or a promotion. The six-time WWE Champion has claimed his new venture can partner with McMahon’s company while the sale to Endeavor, merging with UFC, is in process.

Recently, The Hulkster gave an interview to Forbes’ Alfred Konuwa to promote his new cannabis venture, Carma HoldCo. Behind Ric Flair and Mike Tyson, Hogan is also ready to enter this market for “wellness and health” purposes. He found out about the product after using it recently.

The host asked a series of questions to the 69-year-old, 2x- time WWE Hall of Famer regarding his new company. One of the questions was whether Hogan “approached AEW or WWE for some type of content partnership deal with Carma HoldCo?”

While speaking about a potential partnership with WWE, Hogan said, “Well, bro, I’m a WWE guy, so I don’t think outside that box right now.”

After working for WCW, NJPW, and even TNA/Impact Wrestling The Hulkster is with WWE now. He and Vince McMahon minted a lot of money back in the 80s when Hogan was the top wrestling star. 

It is unclear how WWE will react if Hogan ever pitches the idea of a partnership with the company. WWE only openly referred to cannabis last year while making RK-Bro 420 merchandise. Consequently, the company has a strict policy over its use, so Hogan may partner with AEW, too.

The Hulkster indirectly refers to partnering with AEW, too

While talking to Forbes, ‘The Immortal One’ was open about having a partnership with Tony Khan as well. However, he mentioned it indirectly while sharing his thoughts on being a WWE guy. Hogan hinted that he can be partners with WWE and AEW both at the same time.

The six-time WCW World Champion added, “But this is a whole other avenue. This is a whole other venture and a whole other product. So there are possibilities that more than two can play in the space, that’s for sure.”

Nevertheless, both Vince McMahon and Tony Khan will think twice before partnering with a cannabis company. Irrespective of Hogan’s legendary status, the business will be treated as a business.
