- WWE Divas Champion AJ Lee is once again a member of the Raw roster. She was transferred to SmackDown shortly after her “Pipe Bombshell” tirade and the official WWE website now has her listed as a member of Raw again. The home page of the WWE App, however, has not been updated as she is still featured on the SmackDown graphic (below CM Punk representing Raw).
– WWE continues to highlight the legendary career of Hulk Hogan. “The Hulkster” is currently featured on the front page of WWE.com, as rare photos of the iconic wrestler are being showcased again. Also, the company’s YouTube account just released a clip from last year’s nWo: The Revolution video release of Kevin Nash, Billy Kidman, Jimmy Hart, Ted DiBiase and Cody Rhodes discussing Hogan’s infamous heel turn at Bash at the Beach in 1996.
WWE highlighting Hogan’s career online is not an indication that he’s coming back to the promotion. Joey Styles, WWE’s Vice President of Digital Media Content, revealed in an interview with VOC Nation last month that the Hall of Famer was intentionally placed on the front page last month as means to build traffic after news surfaced that his contract with TNA Wrestling had contract expired.
“Nobody at WWE.com knows if the (front office) is talking to Hulk Hogan,” Styles said. “But it’s out there on every other site; we know that fans are thinking it, so why wouldn’t we use all of the videos and content that we own and use it on the site to build traffic and entertain the fans?”
