We’re being told that Hulk Hogan is still a free agent as of press time. Hogan was trying to leverage WWE against TNA Wrestling in hopes of landing a better deal, following TNA’s decision to decline the option on his contract.
Triple H and Vince McMahon see Hogan as a face they can make a lot of money off of in terms of merchandise and licensing. Dixie Carter is not believed to have taken the WWE interest seriously until she realized the two parties were actually trying to work out a deal.
Hogan is scheduled to meet with Dixie Carter some time this week, while Triple H wants an answer as to whether or not he wants to return to WWE sooner than later. As we reported with Hogan’s inclusion in WWE 2K14, him agreeing to be in the game was a precursor to this and he’s trying to make the deal that benefits him the most.
