Uht oh, maybe “The Hulkster” isn’t appearing in Saudi Arabia on Friday after all.
In an update, the company has removed the WWE Hall Of Famer from the list of Superstars scheduled to appear at Friday’s controversial PPV in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. It’s worth noting that the page also reflects the changes made to the card on WWE television earlier this week, with Bobby Lashley replacing John Cena in the World Cup tournament and Samoa Joe replacing Daniel Bryan as the challenger to WWE Champion A.J. Styles.
WWE has yet to make an official announcement about Hogan’s status for WWE Crown Jewel, however Hogan himself alluded to the fact that he plans to attend the event during an interview he did last week with the Orlando Sentinel.
“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.”
