You bet he's going to be doing just that. He's going to become the heavyweight champion of the world and I'll tell you why. First of all, the man is undefeated in over 15 years as a professional athlete.

You see Hogan, few short hours from now that clock is ticking. And it's ticking in our direction not yours. Hulkamania is over. Hulkamania is dead. The doors going to be shut on the history books on Hulk Hogan once and for all. There is a new heavyweight champion of the world.

And Hogan, I know it's happening to you now because it's happening to me. The butterflies are in my stomach. The adrenaline's flowing thru my veins and I'm getting ready. Cause I'm gonna manage the heavyweight champion of the world. And Hogan, hey you've had three good years. You've got nothing to look back on. But it's all over.
