Big Update on Hulk Hogan’s WWE Status

Discussion in 'General WWE' started by Super Saiyan Goku, Jan 16, 2014.

  1. Hulk Hogan reached a verbal agreement with WWE this past week, according to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

    The latest is that Hogan will not be wrestling at WrestleMania XXX and most likely would not pass a WWE physical. That said, he will have some sort of role at the WWE Hall of Fame and WrestleMania XXX. WWE has been talking about inducting the WrestleMania 1 main event (Hogan & Mr. T vs. Roddy Piper and Paul Orndorf) into the Hall of Fame, with all 4 men being on hand for the ceremony.

    As reported earlier this week, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper has been pushing for a match at WrestleMania that would pit himself & CM Punk vs. Hulk Hogan & John Cena. Piper put Punk over during Old School RAW and tried convincing Punk to get on board for the idea, but it wont be happening, for a variety of reasons.

    At one point there was talk of Hulk Hogan appearing at the ‘groundbreaking’ WWE Network announcement, but the company did not want Hogan’s return to distract from the Network announcement. The decision was made to hold off on his return, which will help pop a big TV rating as WWE is negotiating their TV rights fees.

  6. If you are right, I will put the picture of your choosing in my signature. :pity:
     
  7. Punk would have made for the perfect ally to team with Piper in a match against Cena and Hogan. However, I would have preferred if Hogan and Piper were simply in each guy's corner instead. That's a way to get them both involved as a callback to their rivalry from the original WM that also didn't require having them step back into the ring again. The problem is that Punk isn't a heel and a heel turn certainly isn't something that's gonna happen before Mania, especially with a feud with HHH already in motion.
