WWE Issues New Statement Confirming Hulk Hogan’s Status, More On Hogan – WWE Talks
We noted earlier today, via TMZ.com, that Hulk Hogan is reportedly close to signing a deal which would see him return to WWE, as the two sides have had recent, positive talks.
PWInsider.com also reported that there were discussions in WWE about bringing Hogan back for a surprise appearance at the Greatest Royal Rumble, likely because members of the Saudi Royal Family requested Hogan’s presence at the event, however that of course did not happen.
The TMZ report furthered WWE was paying close attention to Hogan’s speech at the Boys & Girls Club this week when he was inducted into the Alumni Hall of Fame, as WWE wanted to see how Hogan would be received by the live crowd, and he ended up receiving an overwhelmingly positive response.
