Hulk Hogan set for major WWE TV role
Hulk Hogan is going nowhere. There was a lot of doubt if WWE will ever forgive him for what he has done and things seem to be cleared up right now. It's all forgiven and Hulkamania is going ro run wild in teh company once again.
PWInsider's Mike Johnson has now reported that Hogan is set to have a major TV role in the build up to WrestleMania 36. The former WWE champion is being considered because the pay-per-view is set to be held in Tampa – his 'country'.
Johnson was quoted saying; “It’s Tampa, which is Hulk Hogan country, so perhaps the nWo makes sense. I haven’t heard any definite names at this juncture.”
Rumours also suggest that nWo might be inducted into the Hall of Fame next year. The founding members, Kevin Nash, Hulk Hogan, and Scott Hall, are already in the Hall of Fame individually and it won't be long before they are inducted as a fraction too.
WWE wanted Balor at Smackville despite stomach flu
WWE wanted Finn Balor involved at Smackville despite having a stomach flu. The former Intercontinental champion was admitted to hospital straight away and is now expected to be on SmackDown Live tonight.
According to Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp, WWE officials planned on a backstage segment involving Balor and Nakamura with the champion attacking him. However, before they could do anything, Finn had to be taken to the hospital.
Sean said: “We're told that WWE officials realized that Balor left when they decided that they were going to film a segment where Shinsuke Nakamura took him out. We're told that Balor didn't know of the plans, and there wasn't any malice on his part.”
