WWE superstar Rusev has challenged Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan to a fight at Wrestlemania 35 next year.
He laid down the challenge after the veteran superstar tweeted about losing weight and returning to in-ring competition.
Ok, today is a new day. After seeing myself on Crown Jewel I have decided to get serious and get under 300lbs. I looked huge, swole, jacked and my arms are still bigger than most wrestlers legs. I don’t want to look like I can beat up the whole @WWE roster anymore. Only Love HH

It remains to be seen whether if the sports-entertainment company books the match. Judging by his physique, he may be seen in in-ring competition soon.
Hogan’s last match inside a WWE ring was against Randy Orton in Summerslam 2016, which he won.
He was last seen at the WWE Crown Jewel pay-per-view in Saudi Arabia on November 2, 2018.
