Watch as Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan makes his return to WWE at Crown Jewel!

Hulk Hogan returns to WWE airwaves for the first time since 2015 (after being reinstated to the WWE Hall of Fame in July), when he was suspended for racially-charged comments.

The promotion is defiantly moving forward with the event despite widespread criticism that the company is prioritising cashing in over acknowledging the human rights crisis in the country after the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Bigger! Badder! And usually with an event logo connecting the event to its host city, like the NY skyline or the fleur-de-lis for New Orleans incorporated into recent WrestleMania designs. Despite pressure from politicians and considerable backlash from fans in the wake of journalist Jamal Khashoggi's murder inside a Saudi Arabian consulate in Turkey, WWE has made a decision to push forward with the event - which will be the second pay-per-view staged in Saudi Arabia this year. It began with Hogan's likeness surfacing on the superstars page for the Crown Jewel event on the company's website, leading speculation of his involvement with Crown Jewel.
