A few weeks ago just prior to TNA's 'Bound for Glory' pay-per-view Hulk Hogan "quit" as general manager of Impact, but was expected to return once a new deal could be hammered out. Now it appears that plan has blown up in the face of TNA, as Examiner.com is reporting that Hogan has a verbal agreement in place to return to WWE.
For the WWE having Hulk Hogan return to where "Hulkamania" was birthed and help promote the WWE2K14 game leading up to 'WrestleMania' 30 in New Orleans is a big win for the sports entertainment juggernaut. The report of this deal has come down to us from our colleagues at WrestleZone that can be found in there article here. Hogan would sign a legends deal with WWE to make appearances for them and possibly even a return to the ring, even though Hogan has not always been in the best shape to wrestle anymore these days.
If all of this is true the WWE Universe should be abuzz with the possibilities of whom Hogan could face in the ring. Some years ago fans wanted to see Hogan battle "Stonecold" Steve Austin but Austin was too injured to have competed in such a match, but is now healthy enough to have one more contest at 'WrestleMania." A one-on-one match with CM Punk is certainly a possibility as well, and may be even with John Cena to let Hogan "retire" with a title like the World Heavyweight Championship.
Whatever may come it will certainly be interesting to see how this plays out, and when the deal is finalized, how WWE will re-introduce Hulk Hogan back to the WWE Universe on Monday Night Raw. Expect Vince McMahon to also return to television at the time because it would be hard for WWE to have Hogan back without McMahon there by his side.
