WWE Programming To Take Over USA Network During WrestleMania Week - Details

Recent rumors have suggested that Hulk Hogan could be making a return to the WWE after nearly three years away from the company.

Prior to his involvement in the Rumble match, Mysterio's last appearance for WWE just so happened to be at WrestleMania 30 inside the same Superdome venue in which WrestleMania 34 will go down in a little over a week.

Hogan 64, real name Terry Bollea had his WWE contract terminated in 2015 after being recorded making a racial slur.

Considering that representatives from WWE (Triple H & Stephanie McMahon) & Hogan were at the premiere together, the buzz of Hogan working with the sports entertainment giant started to spread.

USA Network, the exclusive cable home to WWE's flagship TV programs Raw and SmackDown LIVE, will again provide expanded access to WrestleMania, WWE's biggest event of the year. WWE didn't hesitate to release ANOTHER statement today regarding their relationship...or lack thereof with Hogan...

"However, his appearance at Thursday night's HBO premiere of the documentary and his plans to help others learn from his mistakes does not mean WWE is rehiring him".

At 10 p.m. ET on Saturday, WWE will be airing a one-hour special for the Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and on Sunday at 6 p.m. ET, fans can check out the second hour of the WrestleMania Kickoff Show on U.S., and WrestleMania 34 itself an hour later on PPV and the WWE Network. Mysterio has already said that he wants the match with Jushin Thunder Liger and he wants to wrestle Will Ospreay.

It seems at this point that it's a matter of when, not if, Hogan will return, and it's believed that WWE is waiting for the right time to bring him back to avoid backlash from their sponsors.

USA Network issued the following press release to announce their WrestleMania 34 week schedule.
