WWE 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 said during an interview with the Orlando Sentinel that he could possibly appear at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia next month.
“There are a lot of plans in the works,” Hogan said. “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 promoting his upcoming nWo reunion event.
Hogan, who is 65 years old, has an idea how he would write his own final chapter in the wrestling business.
“This is a total ego trip, but this is what I would love: To be the hood ornament of the WWE, to be the Babe Ruth of the WWE, and to always be around when any of the big stuff is going on,” Hogan said.
“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. 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.”
