We are aware there are reports out there with the possible return dates of Hulk Hogan and The Undertaker in WWE. Since we cannot confirm those dates, we will not post them. However, we can provide updates on both.

Hulk Hogan is back with WWE and the plan as of last week was for him to return to the company and guest host Wrestlemania XXX. This was The Rock's role when he returned to WWE a few years ago and is the role tapped for Hogan. One issue regarding the Hulkster's return to his former employer was neither Vince McMahon nor Triple H wanted a contract for him to return contingent on a match at Wrestlemania. We're not saying there isn't a chance Hogan doesn't do something physical in his return to WWE, it's just the company didn't want a deal contingent on it. As noted, we cannot confirm a television return date for Hogan but he is expected back for the run up to Wrestlemania just as The Rock did a few years ago. WWE will also look to utilize Hogan as someone to entice lapsed fans to signup for the WWE Network. His inclusion on Wrestlemania XXX was seen as something vital to accomplish this goal.

The Undertaker is tapped to face Brock Lesnar in a match for the streak at this year's Wrestlemania XXX pay-per-view. He'll be returning to television in the build to the show to help promote it. Like with Hogan, we cannot confirm when this date will be.
