However, the six-time wrestling world champ already has one political opponent, his own daughter Brooke Hogan.
Hogan had been encouraged to run for Florida's Senate seat this year - challenging the incumbent Sen.
Republican strategist and former Trump adviser Roger Stone is urging Hulk to challenge Florida Governor Rick Scott in the Republican primary.
When asked, however, if she thinks Hogan will ultimately run for an office, Brooke says "I don't think so".
I don't know if they want me back. The Republicans and Democrats act like they hate each other and they don't want to do anything except create chaos. "So I really don't want to be any part of that".
Hogan, who wasn't wrestled since his TNA Wrestling stint in 2012, wanted Hulkamania to run wild in 2018. "I have a great life here on the beach".
However, Hogan backtracked on his statement and admitted that the thought of running for politics has crossed his mind and said that he would run as a Republican if ever that time comes. The interview was theoretically in response an article earlier this week in which former Trump adviser Roger Stone brought up the man at the center of a years-old scandal involving a sex tape with a friend's wife who was sacked by the WWE in 2015 for using racial slurs on tape as the potential Republican candidate for Senate in Florida.
"After seeing Donald Trump's fan base and watching what Jesse Ventura did (as governor of Minnesota)".
Hogan is still hopeful that he'll get the call but it doesn't look like it's in the cards right now.
"I think it's important to have people who come from outside the perimeters of career politicians in politics". The governing: Brother, I don't want to watch, okay?
Hogan's relationship with WWE was estranged after he was caught making racist comments in a private video.
