• Backstage Reaction To Hulk Hogan’s RAW Return, Future Plan

According to Brad Shepard, WWE Hall of Famer “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan’s RAW return (where he paid tribute to “Mean” Gene Okerlund) was well received by both the fans and people backstage in WWE.

Hogan’s new T-Shirt also sold well and Brad noted that WWE might have some more plans regarding Hogan’s merchandise heading into WrestleMania 35 season:

“I talked to a source in WWE today about Hulk Hogan: His Gene Okerlund tribute on RAW was very well received at WWE HQ and they felt by the fans too. His new t-shirt sold well that night at RAW but otherwise he hasn’t made much noise in terms of merchandise sales.

Part of that is because WWE has been selective about promoting his stuff. You’ll notice he doesn’t have any fun merchandise – just basic logo stuff. The source notes that could change around WrestleMania season.”
