EXCLUSIVE

Hulk Hogan may have retired from wrestling, but someone powerful is twisting his arm hard ... to run for U.S. Senate ... something he says doesn't interest him, but he made it clear to us that could change.

Republican strategist and former Trump adviser Roger Stone is urging Hulk to challenge Florida Governor Rick Scott in the Republican primary.

Hulk says he hasn't returned Stone's calls or the various calls from others echoing the same sentiment.  He's been silent ... until now.

Listen closely ... he says no, but it's clearly not a no in perpetuity.  

One thing's clear ... the former WWE champ says if he throws his hat in the ring, he's going to Washington.

WWE superstar Roman Reigns is 100% denying that he bought steroids from an imprisoned PED kingpin ... claiming he has no idea who the man or his company is. 

“I have never heard of Richard Rodriguez or Wellness Fitness Nutrition," Reigns said in a statement to ProWrestlingSheet.

In a recent phone interview from jail, Rodriguez fingered Reigns -- along with Mark Wahlberg and Josh Duhamel -- as celebs who purchased 'roids from him using aliases. 

Roman's calling BS -- saying he learned his lesson after being flagged for a WWE wellness policy violation about 2 years ago ... adding that he's since "passed 11 tests as part of WWE’s independent drug testing program."

FYI, Rodriguez is being investigated by the DEA, and is facing charges for conspiracy to distribute anabolic steroids and money laundering. He was indicted and arrested last year.

Eva says she's been sober 5 years, but hit "rock bottom" prior to coming to WWE -- serving 3 months behind bars for multiple DUIs, and struggling in her personal and professional life.

Thankfully, the "Total Divas" star was able to enter into a 12-step program to get clean ... and says she still attends AA meetings every week to avoid falling off the wagon.

Eva's killing it as a fashion designer and fitness model these days ... but says she's still in a constant battle with alcoholism -- "This fairytale life is always one drink away from shattering."

Update: Eva was a guest on "TMZ Live" Wednesday and spoke candidly about her struggle ... and why she's choosing to speak up now.

Triple H snuck out of Republique restaurant in L.A. first. Ronda followed with her agent in tow and was in a pretty great mood.
