It’s a tricky situation. Hulk Hogan is arguably the biggest star in the history of wrestling. Whether you like him or not, there is no denying how influential and important he has been to the wrestling industry. He isn’t without controversy though as the infamous leaked tape showed Hogan making a variety of racist remarks. That is going to cause some issues and those issues may be flaring up.
According to Tom Colohue of Sportkeeda.com, multiple members of the WWE roster who are not happy to have Hogan on the show again. More than one name is refusing to work with him whatsoever, though it is not clear who these people are or if they will not be working the upcoming Crown Jewel show as a result. Hogan has recently been named a coach for a ten man tag match at the show against a team lead by Ric Flair.
To my knowledge, there are still multiple roster members who are unhappy with the continued use of Hulk Hogan in the #WWE.
More than one have openly refused to work with him and that has largely been respected. We could see more names refusing a Saudi Arabia appearance. #Raw

Let’s go with something a little more positive. Check out some of Hogan’s greatest moments:
Opinion: I can’t say I’m surprised by any of this as the whole thing is a bad situation and not something that can be forgotten at the drop of a hat. If someone cannot or will not accept Hogan’s apology, I certain can’t argue with them acting on what they think. Hogan is a legend, but that does not make him perfect and that has been made very clear. Hopefully this doesn’t change anything, but at the same time, the people who don’t want to work with Hogan are certainly being reasonable as well.
Do you think anyone will skip the show because of Hogan? Who else will be on his team? Let us know in the comments below.
