Hulk Hogan Advertised For WWE Crown Jewel

Hulk Hogan

Hulk Hogan is being advertised for Friday’s WWE Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia.

On Wednesday, WWE added Hulk Hogan to their Crown Jewel lineup on their official website and mobile app. If Hogan appears at the event, it will mark his first time appearing on a WWE show since 2015.

Hogan told The Orlando Sentinel last week that he was heading to Saudi Arabia with the company. WWE’s efforts to promote Hogan’s recent events are seen as an effort to gauge fan interest in the Hall of Famer’s return.

WWE cut ties with Hogan in 2015 after a sex tape was leaked featuring Hogan using racial slurs. In July, Hogan was reinstated to the WWE Hall of Fame, and he visited backstage at a WWE event to apologize to the locker room. Hogan is currently in civil court with the people he says stole the tape from his former best friend Bubba The Love Sponge.

We’ll be providing live play-by-play coverage of Crown Jewel right here on Friday at noon Eastern Time.

    What a “REAL” American. Returning for Saudis. Him and HBK, two peas in a pod. But this is nothing new for him. He is back again doing anything for money. “Politicing for money is how I keep myself relevant brotherrrrrrr” HH.

    WWE has been based on the fact that they feel “you aren’t going anywhere and will watch them regardless of what they do” and that they can tell you who to cheer and who to boo. Hulk will get a heroes welcome there and they feel that it will translate into what will happen in the states. They will be in for a rude awakening.

    Really starting to sound like WWE are in panic mode that they won’t get the viewers on this so are throwing in things like the old orange racist to draw people in, and potentially having a woman on commentary to say “Look, we are already making change here”.

    This is bull crap. Regardless of whether or not he should come back, Hogan’s return should be in front of US fans, just like HBK’s return to the ring be in the US. I know WWE is getting thrown a lot of money and want to be a global company, but the US is what brought them to the dance. Big returns and special events should only happen here. They can do all the house show ppvs they want overseas, but the really big stuff should only happen here.
