— The slow, inevitable reintegration of Hulk Hogan into the WWE Universe continues.
According to a report today by PWInsider, Hulk Hogan will be on hand for WrestleMania 35. Well, WrestleMania 35 weekend at least, which is taking place in the New York/New Jersey area.
This will be the first time Hogan will be on hand for WrestleMania weekend since 2015. Hogan appeared at WrestleMania 31 in Santa Clara, California as part of a surprise reunion of the nWo backing Sting in his match against Triple H (who was backed by D-Generation X).
While it’s quite possible that Hogan will appear at WrestleMania 35, he’s more likely to induct his longtime friend, Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake, into the WWE Hall of Fame.
A few weeks ago, WrestleVotes broke the news of Torrie Wilson’s induction into the WWE Hall of Fame and said that Beefcake would be part of that class as well.
PWInsider confirmed with WWE sources that Beefcake will be on hand for Wrestlemania 35 weekend as well. While that doesn’t confirm his induction, it definitely looks like it’s happening. For WrestleMania weekend, WWE generally only brings back former stars that are Hall of Famers or going in.
— On Wednesday, Amazon.com began selling the first-ever Becky Lynch Funko WWE POP! figure and it’s already a huge success. The figure is currently the No. 1 best seller in Amazon’s Toys & Games section, which I believe is a first for a WWE product.
On the massive success of the figure, Becky tweeted the following:
The figure is available now for pre-order at Amazon.com for $10.99. It’s only available on Amazon and won’t be released until August 9. If you order the figure today, you won’t be charged until it ships.
Watch Becky unveil the figure in the video below.
