Is that what it takes? There may be no bigger star in the history of professional wrestling than Hulk Hogan. He helped put the WWE on the map back in the 1980s and is still one of the top names in the industry’s history. However, some incidents have kept him out of the WWE spotlight and while some steps have been made to make things better, Hogan is still away from the company. That may be changing though.
A new tweet from the Chairman of the General Sports Authority in Saudi Arabia shows Hogan and asks “What is the World Cup that nobody is talking about?” In the official announcement for Crown Jewel on WWE.com, a World Cup tournament was mentioned though no details have since been released. While not confirmed, there is a possibility that Hogan will be presenting the trophy to the winner.

Like two friends coming together.
Opinion: As odd as that might seem, you go with what the people paying all the money want to see. That’s the case with the Saudi Arabia shows and if the people paying for the shows want Hogan, they’re going to get Hogan. WWE has already made it clear that they aren’t worried by some of the issues that come with things like this so Hogan appearing wouldn’t be the most shocking thing in the world.
Do you think Hogan will show up? Do you want him to be there? Let us know in the comments below.
