His appearance Friday, as host of the "Crown Jewel" event, was his first public appearance for the company since 2015.
The WWE is looking to an old friend to help out with perhaps the most controversial event in professional wrestling history.
Professional wrestling icon Hulk Hogan is in line to make a surprise return to World Wrestling Entertainment this week, more than three years after he was sacked by the company after an audio recording of Hogan making racist remarks was released by the National Enquirer.
The event is surrounded by controversy after the WWE made a decision to go forward with it despite an American resident and Washington Post journalist being murdered earlier this month at Saudi Arabia's consulate in Turkey.
Lost, for some, amidst all of the talk about whether the WWE's second major event in Saudi Arabia should be happening or not are moments that would otherwise garner a lot of attention in their own right.
The live streaming of WWE Crown Jewel event will be available on Sony Liv app and WWE app.More news: Watch the Final Super Smash Bros
