PWInsider is reporting that Hulk Hogan has arrived in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia for Friday’s WWE Crown Jewel event. It is also being reported that Jimmy Hart took the flight with him.

It was confirmed yesterday that Hogan would be apart of WWE Crown Jewel in a hosting role according to Pro Wrestling Sheet and CBS Sports.

Wrestling fans have not seen Hogan in a WWE capacity since 2015 after it was revealed that he made racist comments on a 2006 sex tape and audio from a 2008 conversation between him and his son Nick while his son was incarcerated after a car accident involving him and a 22-year old friend (who Hogan also assassinated the character of). Hogan has since tried to rebuild his character in hopes to get back into the company’s good graces by apologizing on shows like Larry King and Good Morning America. Back in May, Hogan commented to the Buffalo News that he apologized “To those few fans who feel (hurt), I’m forever sorry, and I’ll do whatever I can to make them feel comfortable with me.”

Hogan was reinstated by WWE on July 15 after serving a “three year ban” by the company. That day, Hogan apologized to the WWE locker room while he was backstage at WWE Extreme Rules that sparked statements from Titus O’Neil and The New Day, calling Hogan’s sincerity into question.
