UPDATE: As of 2:30 pm Eastern, Hulk Hogan’s image is no longer being displayed on the live events page for the Crown Jewel show. We have asked for clarification from the WWE on Hogan’s status and are awaiting a response.
The WWE’s Crown Jewel in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia this Friday could feature Hulk Hogan’s first appearance on camera for the company since his firing in 2015.
The live event page for Crown Jewel has recently added Hogan’s name to the list of talent scheduled to appear on the show.
Hogan was fired in the summer of 2015 by the WWE after the discovery of a racist diatribe by Hogan was discovered from the sex tape he was involved in with Heather Clem. Hogan had been serving as an ambassador for the company and was a judge on the USA Network’s Tough Enough series when he was dismissed by the company.
Hogan was welcomed back into the company this year with the WWE announcing he had been placed back into their Hall of Fame. He appeared backstage at the Extreme Rules event in Pittsburgh this past July and spoke to the locker room but has not appeared on camera since being brought back.
During a recent interview with Jay Reddick of the Orlando Sentinel, Hogan hinted at a possible appearance for the company in Saudi Arabia
There are a lot of plans in the works. 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.
