As noted, WWE Hall of Famers Kevin Nash, Scott Hall and Hulk Hogan will be reuniting for a “Too Sweet” nWo reunion, and during a recent interview with Sports Illustrated’s Extra Mustard, Hogan had the following to say on the tour:

“First off, this whole nWo thing has Vince McMahon’s blessing. I’ve heard people say otherwise, but I have a great rapport with Vince, we talked about this, and we’re acting under his blessing. The response is incredible, much greater than we expected, especially from people in the U.K. We had over 100,000 responses to the announcement.

“The fans are just so loyal. We’re all human, we all make mistakes, and I’ve made crazy, boneheaded mistakes. I’m not perfect, but I am trying to make a positive impact every day. People have stood by me and stuck with me. I’ll never forget that. They know me, they know who I am, and they know how much I love this business—this business is my life. I’ve got nothing but love in my heart for the fans, I’m forever grateful.”
