“As reported on WWE Backstage, The Gypsy King is slated to appear when the blue brand broadcasts from the lineal heavyweight champion’s hometown of Manchester, England. With Fury in the building, Braun Strowman shouldn’t be far behind as the two brawlers have unfinished business.

“Are Fury and Strowman headed for another epic collision?

While he completed his role at WWE Crown Jewel, Hulk Hogan did so while fighting through pain. The former champion will need surgery on his back next week.

Hogan, in an interview with Sports Illustrated explained what his next procedure will be.

“I’m going in for another back surgery next Tuesday,” Hogan said. “They’re going to fuse six levels together, so we’ll see how I feel after that. People have stuck by me, even when I made mistakes. Their love and loyalty have blown me away.

“The memory of wrestling still connects me to people. Hopefully it’s a memory that will live forever.”

Hogan and a group of superstars earned a victory over a team led by Ric Flair.

During his multiple WWE appearances, Hogan did not use any assistance to walk. However, footage of an altercation with a fan showed him using a crutch.
