WWE Officially Announces Hulk Hogan’s Return

Hulk-Hogan-WWE-Superstar-12

Just hours after TMZ broke the news that Hulk Hogan would be appearing on RAW this Monday (something rumor sites have been claiming a while), the WWE made the announcement that Hogan had indeed returned to the company – and will host WrestleMania 30.

Not sure what the WWE’s original plan was for keeping Hulk Hogan’s return a secret – as you’d assume they’d have benefited from advertising his appearance this Monday. But the way it looks not is that they, once again, rushed out an announcement due to the media breaking the news early.

Vince McMahon Comments on CM Punk

Either way, Hulk Hogan’s back, he’ll be on RAW, and he’s hosting WrestleMania 30. Here bits from the official press release:

WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan has returned to WWE (NYSE:WWE) and will host WrestleMania® 30 on Sunday, April 6 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. Hogan will make his long-awaited return to WWE this Monday on Raw®, which airs live at 8 pm ET on USA Network. He will also appear on WWE Raw Backstage Pass, airing live on WWE Network on Monday night at 11:05 pm ET.

“We are thrilled that Hulk Hogan has returned home to WWE,” said WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon. “It’s fitting to have him help us celebrate 30 years of WrestleMania and usher in a new era with the launch of WWE Network.”

“Words cannot express how excited I am to be back in the WWE family,” said Hulk Hogan. “I only have one question for the WWE Universe: whatcha gonna do when Hulkamania runs wild as the host of WrestleMania 30?”

Hulk Hogan Returning to RAW on Monday

1alg-hogan-jpg

There’d been reports that Hulk Hogan was headed back to RAW to help hype the WWE’s launch of their WWE Network and now it’s been confirmed. What’s he gonna do at WrestleMania 30? Well, that’s another matter.

Mark-Paul Gosselaar as Ryu

TMZ has confirmed what many of us already suspected, that Hulk Hogan was returning to WWE TV on this Monday’s RAW to do some “old school” selling of the new WWE Network.

“We know .. Hogan has been training at the WWE Performance Center in Florida … and our rock-solid wrestling sources tell us the Hulkster will make his re-debut with the WWE on “Monday Night Raw” on Feb. 24th.”

We do know however that Hogan didn’t pass the WWE’s psychical for in-ring action, so he probably won’t be throwing down with anyone. And as for his role at April’s WrestleMania 30? Well, the rumor is that he’ll be acting in a “host” capacity. The way The Rock did back at ‘Mania 27.

Here’s TMZ’s pic of Hogan at the WWE Performance Center…

How do you take something delightful and make it even more delightful? Why, you use footage from the awesome new Guardians of the Galaxy trailer, starring Parks and Rec/LEGO Movie‘s Chris Pratt, and you turn it into the Parks and Rec opening credits!

And yes, in case you couldn’t guess from the giant MTV logos splashed all over the video, this specific piece of inspired internet comes from the station formerly known as Music Television.

Bruce Springsteen Covers INXS

695772-bruce-springsteen

When Bruce Springsteen tours down under, he gives the people what they want. And here he is at a recent gig in Sydney, Australia covering an INXS classic.

R Rated Movies Become Kid’s Books

Full disclosure: I’m a massive INXS fan. So hearing The Boss cover 1982′s “Don’t Change” (and then bleeding it into “Born to Run”) has me musically geeking out like a mo’fo. Now, if he could just do Midnight Oil’s “Forgotten Years” on his next stop…

And yes, that is Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello playing guitar. If you didn’t know, he’s been playing with the E Street Band on and off for a few years now.

Here’s the original INXS version, btw…

The WWE Issues a Statement on CM Punk’s Job Status

20130311_Video-Still_RAW_punk

With rumors circulating this past weekend that CM Punk had been granted an early release, the WWE felt compelled to release a short-but-sweet statement regarding his current situation.

Jim Ross + Jamaican Club Dancing

There were a few whispers (which I didn’t report on) over the past few days that people were talking backstage at WWE house shows about CM Punk being officially gone from the WWE – that he’d been given the okay to walk away from his contract early.

The WWE, just moments ago, reached out to f4wonline.com

“WWE has officially stated that C.M. Punk has not been released.”

This is the first time the WWE has mentioned, albeit briefly, the Punk crisis. Despite this claim though, and the fact that Punk is still listed on the Superstar Roster page, there are still plenty of rumors out there stating that Punk’s been telling people that he’s done (via PWInsider.com)

The Guys of Full House Reunited on Jimmy Fallon

Screen Shot 2014-01-30 at 9

Though they reunited first for the teasers for their upcoming Super Bowl yogurt ads, the dudes from Full House – Bob Saget, John Stamos, and Dave Coulier – popped in on Jimmy Fallon last night to help him overcome his fear of leaving Late Night.

Pretty funny skit here, especially the revelation that Fallon himself is combination of all three of the Full Housers personalities.

Would HBK Un-Retire to Face Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania?

9d8738c3d2a0b3452c65966c03e1cc84

It’s being reported now that the WWE wants Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels to come out of retirement to face Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 30. Although, naturally, the ball is said to be “completely in his court.”

If HBK does decide to come back, it would only be for one match, not a handful like The Rock did. And it would only be for a match with Bryan – no one else. Although a part of me would really want to see HBK and Hunter re-team as Corporate DX and face Bryan and Punk. But that’s just a dream.

Despite the fact that HBK came in to work a few segments with Bryan, and to guest ref one PPV match, there is currently nothing set for him return-wise.

WWE Issues a Statement Regarding “Fake” Sin Cara on RAW

SIN-Cara

Following the hubbub on this past Monday’s RAW, where the role of the masked Mexican Superstar Sin Cara was portrayed by Hunico (while Mistico, the original Sin Cara, was FourSquaring from Mexico), the WWE has released a statement…

“The original performer behind the Sin Cara mask remains under contract to WWE,” the statement reads. “WWE will continue to invest in the character and retain it as part of WWE programming.”

So it reads like Hunico will be playing the Sin Cara role for a while (as Sin Cara merchandise continues to do very well) until they decide what’s to be done with the original performer.
