Why Hulk Hogan vs. John Cena Should Never Happen

Hulk Hogan vs. John Cena should never happen. 

The statute of limitations for this match expired well before Hogan's last back surgery, and if this match happened in 2014, it would be a tragedy. 

At 61 years of age and with a history of back problems, Hogan can no longer take a bump. He can't even hit the Leg Drop—his iconic finisher. Following Jerry Lawler's heart scare from last year, it would behoove WWE to no longer permit 60-year-old wrestlers to compete, no matter how big the name.

Hogan vs. Cena would be the discount version of a main event, and its failure to deliver would hurt the legacy of both living legends. 

Hogan has had a knack over the years to make bold statements that are more or less just talk. Let's hope his recent claims to the Matthew Aaron Show Podcast (h/t WrestlingInc.com) of "training like crazy" for one more match is just that.
