A source close to Wrestlezone sent in word that an employee of the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA – the site for tonight's WWE Smackdown taping – spotted Hulk Hogan in the backstage area. According to the source, Hogan said hello to a few people backstage, but denied taking any pictures.
If the rumors are true, Hogan is not likely to show up at tonight's WWE Smackdown taping, which will air this Friday. Should he return to the company at all, it will most likely happen on Monday Night Raw or a major PPV such as the Royal Rumble, or WrestleMania XXX. However, given that WWE will be firming up all its plans for the April event in the coming weeks, Hogan is likely backstage meeting with Triple H and other executives, working out a deal for Mania.
We will update the situation should any more information become available.
