WWE’s Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia has received a lot of press for the wrong reason. As the event gets closer, it seems like more and more people are coming out and advising WWE against throwing the huge Saudi Arabian show. But apparently, Hulk Hogan is more than happy to go.
Hulk Hogan recently spoke to the Orlando Sentinel where he confirmed that he is looking forward to going to Saudi Arabia with WWE.
“There are a lot of plans in the works. 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.”
Whether Hogan actually goes to Saudi Arabia is another matter entirely, because we’ve been hearing a lot of rumors that WWE is working to move the show’s location. But no matter where Crown Jewel is moved to, we’re willing to bet that Hogan will be enthusiastic about going anywhere so he can be in a WWE ring once more.
This news was first confirmed by Joe Peisich on Barnburner’s No Holds Barred podcast as we previously reported on in late September. Only time will tell what happens next as WWE’s situation with the Kingdom Of Saudi Arabia seems to be getting even more complicated. But at least The Hulkster is looking forward to going.
