Hogan tipped to return to WWE TV in February 2014
long last wrestling legend Hulk Hogan is to return
to the WWE.
pro wrestling news services such as Pro
Wrestling Observer, Pro
Wrestling Torch and Wrestling
INC advise that the Hogan signing (possible handshake
deal) is done.
Australian based Media
Man agency has put feelers out, and all industry
insiders contacted also say that Hogan is indeed returning
to what many consider his true wrestling home - WWE
(formally known as World Wrestling Federation)...
where Hogan ruled the ring for the 80s and 90s.
Hogans contract with TNA ended in 2013 and ever
since, rumors about his WWE return have been swirling.
things stand, Hogan has agreed to return to WWE and
make appearances in the build up to Wrestlemania 30,
as well as on that show.
WWE doctors have been unable to medically clear Hogan,
which rules out a match or any serious physical involvement.
now appears that Hogan will be booked to return on
the February 24, 2014 edition of Monday Night Raw,
which is the raw after the Elimination Chamber 2014
PPV. This is a massive day for WWE, as the WWE Network
launches at 11PM EST that same day, as Raw goes off
is planning to use Hogan and other major names from
the past (including those not featured on Old School
Raw) to bump a rating and create interest in the Network
is also negotiating with WCW icon and former Hogan
friend and foe, Sting, and talks are ongoing.
the surface it appears that the remainder of 2014
may be the year of the big men in the WWE - both inside
and outside the ring, with COO Triple H leading the
charge, and with Batista winning the Royal Rumble
match to a mixed reaction, and Roman Reigns being
the stand out star of the event. Not sure we would
want to be in Daniel Bryan's shoe's at this time,
regardless of his immense in ring ability and massive
fan base. 2014 look to be the year of the giants and
Hulk-A-Mania is about to run wild once again.
