Backstage Update on Hulk Hogan's Imminent Return To The WWE
Sunday, May 13, 2018
It has been rumored and teased for several weeks now that Hulk Hogan will be returning to the WWE sooner rather than later. Apart from The Ultimate Warrior, Yokozuna and The Undertaker, officials from The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia also asked that Hulk Hogan make an appearance at the recently completed Greatest Royal Rumble Event. However, perhaps not wanting to risk controversy, WWE decided not to make that move.
Amidst all the recent reports of Hogan nearing a WWE return, according to a report in a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the wording of WWE's public statement on the matter "Hogan is not currently under contract to WWE" pretty much tells everyone that they are close to an agreement.
If and when Hogan does return to the WWE, it remains to be seen what his role will be. The reports also indicate that he will actually get in the ring and wrestle, but he is 65 years old and WWE has already seen what has happened to Jerry Lawler and Ricky Steamboat in the past.
