There have been WWE rumors that Hulk Hogan might make a return to WWE, and recently, he teased doing just that. The former WWE champion has been away from WWE for some time, ever since comments he made that were leaked on audio. However, there has been an underlying belief that WWE would let time move fans away from Hogan's scandal, and then he would make a big return to World Wrestling Entertainment. Recently, the professional wrestling superstar praised one of the newest stars within WWE and even teased taking on a role with him at ringside.
In a recent report from Still Real to Us, it's noted how the Hulkster praised big man Braun Strowman. Hogan tweeted a message on Sunday night, the same night that Strowman was involved in a Fatal 4-Way with Roman Reigns, Samoa Joe, and the WWE Universal Champion, Brock Lesnar.
The Hulkster indicated he was thinking, "I should've been the ref or @BraunStrowman manager, he looks like the new Huckster to me brother."
Hogan added a SummerSlam hashtag to the tweet as well. Strowman came up on the losing end in the match, but he did quite a bit of damage throughout the match, nearly sidelining the champion after dumping a table on him.
So could Hulkster help Strowman? Hogan was, of course, the catalyst for helping to make professional wrestling a mainstream phenomenon. He's also no stranger to being around some of the biggest and baddest in the business, including current WWE star The Big Show and the late, great Andre the Giant. In terms of the current WWE landscape, Braun Strowman is certainly becoming the best big man in the business as he continues a nice push. As Cageside Seats reported, Strowman will take on Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Championship. The site reports it will be the main event match at the next WWE Raw pay-per-view, No Mercy 2017.
