The date of Crown Jewel is rapidly approaching and Hulk Hogan dropped an interesting quote in a new interview that might fuel speculation over a surprise appearance.
Hogan was interviewed by the Orlando Sentinel and the topic of his recent return to WWE was touched upon. “There are a lot of plans in the works,” Hogan told them.
Adding, “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.”
WWE’s current contract with the Saudi Arabian government is a long-term deal, so Hulk could just be speaking generally. As of this writing, there’s been no announcement from WWE saying Hulk will be at Crown Jewel. However, they have been heavily promoting his upcoming NWO reunion event.
Hogan finished the interview saying he’d like to be WWE’s Babe Ruth and used as a “hood ornament” for the company going forward.
“I sure would love to be a part of the WrestleManias and the big events and the grand openings and the new conquests of the WWE,” he explained. “Saudi Arabia! Hong Kong! China! Antarctica! The North Pole! Whatever it is, I’d like to be part of the ongoing growth of the wrestling business, and be with WWE the whole time, that’s the only place to be.”
