Hulk Hogan returns to WWE at controversial show in Saudi Arabia

WWE is looking to an icon as it stages perhaps the most controversial event in pro wrestling history. More

Roman Reigns' vacated WWE Universal Champion was claimed at Crown Jewel this Friday, and you'll never guess who's back in the hot seat.

After being announced as a featured talent for WWE's Crown Jewel show in Saudi Arabia earlier his week, Hulk Hogan officially made his WWE return at the event today.

"Bringing him back to host a show in Saudi Arabia is an epic case of tone deafness and reeks of total desperation after Cena and Bryan bailed on participating in the event".

You can officially add Big Show to the list, which isn't altogether that surprising as he will likely be accompanying his new partners in The Bar to ringside for their Smackdown Tag Team Championship defense.

Other WWE superstars are set for action as Shawn Michaels returns from retirement to team up with Triple H to take on The Undertaker and Kane.

One of the biggest highlights of the event will definitely be the first-ever World Cup tournament.

- The Bar (Cesaro and Sheamus) vs.

OnePlus 6T launch: Specifications, features, 7 biggest takeaways
OnePlus , one of the fastest growing premium smartphone brands across the world, has today unveiled the OnePlus 6T smartphone. OnePlus 6T comes loaded with a 6.4-inch Optic AMOLED display with 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio.

DX (Triple H and Shawn Michaels) vs. SmackDown Live is represented by Jeff Hardy vs The Miz and Rey Mysterio vs Randy Orton.

Cena was replaced in the World Cup match by Bobby Lashley on Monday night's WWE Raw.

Hogan was sacked from WWE in July 2015 after using racist language multiple times in a leaked video, but has consistently apologised since.

With the Crown Jewel event, WWE eventually made the decision to go ahead, transparently citing business reasons in their "very hard decision" to proceed with the show.

- Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Rusev for the United States championship (kickoff show). The New Day might have gotten to ride to the ring on a sweet magic carpet - but it didn't help them carry home the gold from WWE Crown Jewel.

The event will be live on Sony Ten 1, Sony Ten 1HD (both English) and Ten 3, Ten 3HD (both Hindi).
