Hogan makes first WWE TV appearance since 2015.
WWE legend Hulk Hogan made his return to WWE television today at the promotion's controversial Crown Jewel PPV in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
The event, currently airing on the WWE Network, marks Hogan's first appearance on WWE TV since the Summer of 2015. The 12-time world champion had been reinstated into the WWE Hall of Fame back in July, following a three-year ban from the company.
Serving as the host for the Crown Jewel PPV, Hogan opened the event by addressing the crowd prior to the Rey Mysterio vs Randy Orton match. Check out The Hulkster's monologue in the video embedded below.
Hogan isn't the only WWE legend taking part in the Saudi Arabia PPV, as The Undertaker and Kane aka The Brothers of Destruction, are set for a tag-team match against DX's Triple H and Shawn Michaels.
Crown Jewel will also feature a World Cup Tournament, which will feature four wrestlers from Raw and four from SmackDown Live. On the Raw side of the bracket, Bobby Lashley (John Cena's replacement) will face Intercontinental champion Seth Rollins, with the winner taking on either Kurt Angle or Dolph Ziggler. SmackDown Live is represented by Jeff Hardy vs The Miz and Rey Mysterio vs Randy Orton.
Other matches on the card include Brock Lesnar vs Braun Strowman for the vacant Universal Title, AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe for the WWE Championship and The New Day vs The Bar for the SmackDown Live Tag Team Championship.
