WWE's Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia has been perhaps the company's most controversial show in years, and that's saying something.
With the current situation tensions in the Kingdom, a situation that has seen two of WWE's top stars in Daniel Bryan and John Cena both refuse to travel for the show, WWE was reportedly considering cancelling it altogether, as well as looking for a new host venue, before deciding to carry on with their planned performance.
And it looks like the WWE are making another move that may not go down so well with a group of their fans, with one controversial Hall of Famer in line to host the show.
According to a recent report from Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet, it has been confirmed that Hulk Hogan is making a comeback to appear at Crown Jewel and that he will also be the host for the show.
Satin tweeted the news out earlier today, saying that the news was confirmed to him.
This had been predicted earlier in the year, when Turki Al-Sheikh - the Minister and Chairman of the General Sports Authority in Saudi Arabia - tweeted out a picture of Hulk Hogan along with a message about the WWE World Cup taking place at Crown Jewel.
Al-Sheikh, the man who is in charge of all WWE events in the Kingdom, would be someone who would definitely know if Hogan would be at the event - and it looks like he has got his wish.
Hogan was last at a WWE event in July when he apologized to the WWE locker room backstage at Extreme Rules, but he never appeared on-camera.
Reports at the time stated that several WWE stars left that meeting with Hogan, who was apologizing for his racist language that was uncovered in his leaked tape, believing that Hogan's apology wasn't genuine at all and that he was only sorry for getting caught.
With Saudi Arabia splashing the cash on their deal with the WWE, they get whatever they want. And it looks like that includes a man who hasn't been seen on WWE television since 2015.News Now - Sport News
