According to one person in WWE, the issue today is that while there is still a real Wellness policy in effect, the tests are few and far between and there are so many ways to get around them that guys are back to being just as big as ever.

Jimmy Hart has been talking to various live event and touring companies, both in the US and in the UK, about producing a Hulk Hogan road show. It is not a given that Hogan would actually be headlining the shows, only that he would be presenting the shows.
