Hulk Hogan returning at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia

Hulk Hogan told the Orlando Sentinel newspaper that he will be traveling to Saudi Arabia with WWE for Crown Jewel and will be making his first WWE televised appearance since 2015 when he got fired midway through the Tough Enough season where he served as a judge.

“There are a lot of plans in the works,” Hogan said. “I’m looking forward to going to Saudi Arabia with the WWE, looking forward to WrestleMania – but yeah, we’re moving forward at a rapid pace. It’s exciting to have this opportunity again after all these years where I was there and gone.”

The Saudi General Sports Authority chairman, Turki Al-Sheikh, recently tweeted a photo of Hogan, tipping off everyone that Hogan would indeed be making the trip.

The Hall of Famer had been a persona non grata in WWE for a few years but recently was invited backstage at Extreme Rules to apologize for the racist rant that was caught on tape from several years before.
