We are able to confirm there have been quiet talks between WWE and Hulk Hogan. As we reported, Hogan denied such talks on Twitter but the wording deserves attention. He’s not lying as it was his representatives that have been the ones talking with WWE, not Hogan personally.
The hang up is WWE wanted the Gawker lawsuit settled and done with before even considering Hogan back for Wrestlemania. The case is set to go to trial in March and WWE doesn’t want to be associated in any way. Hogan thinks he’s going to win and the lawsuit could be more lucrative than Wrestlemania would be for him. But him not settling looks to be the deal breaker keeping him out of WWE for now.
Switching gears, production is underway on WWE 2K17. Low Ki, TJ Perkins and Kenny King have been doing mocap work for the game.
