Big Update on Hoganís WWE Return Ė WrestleMania XXX and the Network
Regarding Hulk Hoganís talks with WWE, weíve noted before how Triple H and Vince McMahon do not want his return deal with the company to be contingent on him having a match at WrestleMania XXX. Word now is that WWE feels Hogan wonít turn down the opportunity to return even if heís not happy with his role at WrestleMania XXX. WWE officials feel they have a lot of leverage because they can pay Hogan more than TNA and itís not like Hogan was eager to stay in TNA anyway.
WWE is looking for Hogan to have a ďmajor roleĒ in terms of being featured on programming for the WWE Network and hope his presence will entice older fans to check out the service even if they have no interest in the current product.
The same goes for Bruno Sammartino as WWE is hoping to use him as an asset to the Network in a similar fashion but they do realize that he has far less mainstream name brand value compared to Hogan. Also, given Brunoís age, thereís no way the company can rely on him still being alive to continue to film new content consistently for the next 5-10 years.
