UPDATE: WWE confirmed to Wrestling sheet today that Hogan would serve as “Host” of Crown Jewel. He was advertised on the WWE events listing of Crown Jewel earlier today, but has since been removed:
Hulk Hogan, perhaps the biggest star in wrestling history, has been cast into the wilderness for the past few years after some racially charged comments made in a leaked video.
However, he is seemingly back in WWE’s good graces, having been reinstated into the Hall of Fame and WWE have been actively promoting his NWO event in Florida next week.
Hogan has now expressed in an interview:
“I’m looking forward to going to Saudi Arabia with the WWE, looking forward to WrestleMania — but yeah, we’re moving forward at a rapid pace. It’s exciting to have this opportunity again after all these years where I was there and gone.”
It is unsure if Hogan is referring to an appearance at the controversial Crown Jewel event or a future Saudi event. Hogan seems very proactively determined to get back within the WWE on a more permanent and visible way. Wishing to travel the world with the company and make appearances at Wrestlemania next year and beyond.
There is no official word from the WWE regarding any potential Hogan appearance as of writing.
