• WWF Legend Teases A Return To WWE
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:

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.
With that being said, Hogan teased a return to WWE by tweeting the following:
Back in the day the challenge was simple, work 300 days a year even if you’re hurt if you want to keep your spot. Today? Well maybe we’ll just have to find out, brother. HH #wwf #wwe pic.twitter.com/LHz2AiD1Ch
