She told her dad “You promised me you wouldn’t do it... You said you wouldn’t get in the ring. You’re going back on your word.” 

Hulk admits, “She’s right. I made a mistake and creatively I created a storyline where I didn’t realize that painting a guy red and yellow, giving him the rub from Hulk Hogan will create a scenario where people would start cheering for me.” So he admits he boxed himself in. “So, I have to wrestle.”

But Brooke is upset, “she always comes, but she’s like I can’t watch this . . . If something happens. You end up in a wheelchair; you get carried out in a stretcher. I can’t be a part of this.”

Hulk says she’s right, but “I don’t see things going that way.”

But Hulk is most concerned about Brooke’s reaction:  “I just got to get through it. Get out of the ring and say ‘I told you so. I wouldn’t get hurt.’ That’s what I got to do and then she’ll back off. But then I really got to not do this.”

The Hulk Hogan who enters the ring Monday Night, is a kinder-gentler Hulk.

Hulk says outside the ring he and Ric Flair are friendly but, Ric “has the belief that he made wrestling.--his technique, the technical aspects are the foundation of this business, which I agree with. But it also had to be complimented with the showbiz, the smoke and mirror the Hulk Hogan that had a little bit of technical, but more flash and charisma and Hollywood.”

Hulk’s return to the ring takes place live Monday Night at 9 p.m. on Spike.
