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.
