Backstage News On Possible Plans For Hulk Hogan's WWE Return

While The Hulkster was on his way to the premiere, TMZ caught up with him and asked him straight up if he will be returning to WWE & whether or not he will be at WrestleMania. He hasn't worked for the WWE since he was sacked by the company in July 2015 after a controversial sex tape was released showing him making racial slurs.

In the statement WWE said, "We have had discussions with Terry Bollea (aka Hulk Hogan) about how he can help others learn from his mistakes, however, he is not under any contract with WWE".

Reports over the past week stated that Hogan and WWE were in talks over a possible return to the company of the wrestling legend.

As noted, WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan will be attending tonight's "Andre the Giant" HBO documentary premiere in Los Angeles, and it will be the first time Hogan has made a WWE related appearance since his release from the company back in 2015.

However, to add clarity to their stance with Hogan after recent events, WWE released a statement about their relationship with Hogan via PWInsider.

Koke, Griezmann Score in Atletico Madrid's UEL 1st Leg Win Over Sporting
Simeone's Atletico host Portuguese visitors Sporting CP in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final on Thursday. Lazio edged a six-goal thriller 4-2 against Salzburg as all four home sides took an advantage into the second leg.

It seems at this point that it's a matter of when, not if, Hogan will return, and it's believed that WWE is waiting for the right time to bring him back to avoid backlash from their sponsors.

Prior to his involvement in the Rumble match, Mysterio's last appearance for WWE just so happened to be at WrestleMania 30 inside the same Superdome venue in which WrestleMania 34 will go down in a little over a week.

WWE continues to provide fans with dream matches at WrestleMania every year, with two more - Shinsuke Nakamura vs. AJ Styles and John Cena vs.
