According to Sports Illustrated, Hulk Hogan was turned down when he asked for $750,000 from New Japan Pro Wrestling for an appearance. Reportedly, the promotion wanted Hogan to appear at Wrestle Kingdom 12 as a member of the Bullet Club.

Hogan has not been seen in a wrestling ring since he left WWE in 2015. He was there in a non-wrestling role. He stopped appearing on WWE and was eventually released by the company during a controversy regarding his sex tape and his use of a racial slur. His last match was in Impact Wrestling in 2012. His last pay-per-view match was against Sting at Bound for Glory in 2011.
Fightful Wrestling will continue to cover Hogan's status with any wrestling promotion.
