• Hulk Hogan’s Possible Role At WWE Crown Jewel PPV
It looks like the in-ring return of WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels might not be the only return we see at the WWE Crown Jewel PPV on November 2 in Saudi Arabia.
As we noted before, PWInsider reported that WWE officials are discussing bringing “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan back to WWE programming at the WWE Crown Jewel PPV. Hogan’s last live appearance on a WWE show was back in 2015.
In an update to this, Turki Al-Sheikh (Chairman of the General Sports Authority in Saudi Arabia) posted the following Tweet with a photo of the Hulkster:
وش كأس العالم اللي ما أحد يحكي عنه ذا؟ pic.twitter.com/xnlEho2OFI

The translation of this tweet reads: “What is the World Cup that nobody is talking about”.
For those who don’t know, a WWE World Cup to crown the ‘Best In The World’ will take place at the WWE Crown Jewel PPV.
The Fired Up podcast is now reporting that Hogan is expected to present the WWE World Cup trophy to the winner of this tournament at WWE Crown Jewel PPV.
No word yet on if WWE will announce Hogan’s return for WWE Crown Jewel PPV in advance or if he will appear at the PPV as a surprise name.
