Update: The Latest Backstage News on Hulk Hogan Potentially Returning to WWE

Nick Paglino

Hulk HoganF4WOnline.com is reporting the general feeling backstage in WWE is that Hulk Hogan will be re-signing with TNA, and will not be returning to the company.

There are people in WWE, however, that would like to see Hogan return for WrestleMania 30, as they feel someone like him is necessary to spike the WrestleMania buyrate, which was considered disappointing for the event this year.

If WWE were to induct Randy Savage or Ultimate Warrior into the Hall of Fame next year, then Hogan's ideal involvement during WrestleMania weekend would be to induct either or both of them, and then work some type of angle with a mid-card heel at WrestleMania.

With both The Rock and Steve Austin questionable for WrestleMania, many feel someone big like Hogan could be the person to deliver a strong buy rate for the PPV. If The Rock does commit to the PPV, it will be the fourth consecutive WrestleMania he has appeared at, so the feeling is his power to boost the buy rate might be dwindling.
