Hogans Original Mania 9 Opponent

Theres a few interviews with Matt bourne where he said the company wanted to do Doink/Hogan at Mania 9 which he turned down then supposely also turned down Bulldog also for the same show. Any truth to these? How the hell do you even get to Doink/Hogan?

​Yeah, everyone in the wrestling world was, I'm sure, originally booked to headline Wrestlemania against Hulk Hogan at some point in their own minds.  
Also, British Bulldog was released about six months before Wrestlemania, so I'm assuming that one's not correct, either.  ​
