Report: WWE Bringing In Hulk Hogan & Brutus Beefcake For WrestleMania Weekend

Hulk Hogan is going to WrestleMania.

According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider, WWE is bringing in Hulk Hogan for WrestleMania 35 weekend. There is no word on what Hogan will be doing during WrestleMania weekend and it has not been confirmed that Hogan will be on the show itself.

PWInsider also reports that Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake will also be part of WrestleMania 35 weekend. Their report states that Beefcake could be inducted into the 2019 WWE Hall of Fame with Hogan being the man to induct him. Earlier this month, Twitter user @WrestleVotes reported that Beefcake will be part of the 2019 Hall of Fame class.

Hogan has not been part of the WrestleMania festivities since 2015 when he made a cameo appearance at WrestleMania 31. On that night, Hogan, alongside Kevin Nash & Scott Hall, helped Sting in his battle against Triple H & D-Generation X.

That same year, tapes leaked of Hogan using racist language, leading WWE to release him from his contract. Hogan was brought back into the fold in July 2018, showing up at Extreme Rules to issue an apology to the WWE locker room. Hogan officially returned to WWE television this past November, serving as the host of Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia. Hogan would return to Raw in January to honor the late "Mean" Gene Okerlund.

Recently, Hogan was part of the WWE WrestleMania 36 press conference in Tampa.

WWE has not announced Hogan nor Beefcake as being part of WrestleMania 35 or any of the planned events that weekend.
