John Cena: You can't have WrestleMania 30 without Hulk Hogan

With rumors swirling that Hulk Hogan will show up at "WrestleMania 30", the biggest star in WWE, John Cena, has come right out and said it needs to happen.

When we last left Hulk Hogan, he was telling reporters he's done with TNA and currently looking for a job. He's also maintained for some time now that he will be making an appearance at WrestleMania 30 in April of next year in New Orleans, even if it means buying a ticket to sit in the audience.

As if.

Meanwhile, Jimmy Hart has been telling whoever will listen that he believes "The Hulkster" has a couple good matches left in him. Negotiations between the two sides is ongoing and at last report were going well.

Now, John Cena, the biggest star in WWE at current time, has chimed in with his thoughts on the matter in a recent interview with TMZ and he's hoping Hogan will be at the big show:

"I grew up in the 80s as a fan of the old WWF. (Wrestling Hulk Hogan) would be a dream come true. But I certainly don't want to put him in a situation he's not physically capable of. We operate at a high level of speed in the WWE nowadays. I think you can't have a WrestleMania 30 without Hulk Hogan. I really, truly hope he's there in my heart of hearts because as WrestleMania turns 30 I think we need 'The Hulkster'. But we'll see if we can get him there to do whatever he can do. I'm speaking to you as a Hulkamaniac. To me, he's always welcome."

Hogan vs. Cena would quite possibly be the biggest money match to make right now but it would almost assuredly be the worst worked bout of the past 20 years. As Cena himself says, there's only so much you can do with someone in Hulk's physical condition.

Still, the general sentiment is that Hulkamania needs to ride at WrestleMania at least one more time.
