We reported earlier that Hulk Hogan was officially added to the WWE Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia on Friday and we can now confirm his role will be the host of the event.
Hogan's return to the company has been in the works for a while now and his appearance on Friday will be his first WWE TV appearance since 2015.
Hogan himself confirmed the news to The Orlando Sentinel a couple weeks ago. He said:
"There are a lot of plans in the works," Hogan said. "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."
