After Hulk Hogan took to his official Twitter account where he talked about his WWE return at Crown Jewel, Rusev challenged the WWE Legend to a match at WrestleMania 35. You can see the exchange here:
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

This led to Rusev responding to that tweet by challenging Hogan to a match at WrestleMania 35.
