In some Hulk Hogan notes:

WWE & Hulkster did squabble over financial matters, leading to him not being used this year at Wrestlemania. He wanted his merchandise pushed more, which the company is no longer featuring.

Hogan's agreement with WWE is that he will always be paid at least equal to the highest paid performer on whatever show he works.

Hogan is still upset about the potential money match of himself v. Steve Austin not happening.

Hogan never liked the idea of working Khali at Wrestlemania.
