During the last hours, several portals have indicated that Hulk Hogan and Jimmy Hart have traveled to Cleveland, Ohio, a city that is only two hours away from Pittsburgh, where the PPV event of WWE Extreme Rules will be held tonight. It might seem like a simple coincidence, but Hogan does not have an appearance scheduled for these days in Cleveland, which makes us suspect that we could be facing one of the surprises of Extreme Rules.
One of the things that have made us suspect is that Hogan has tried to show that he is in Miami by posting an image on his social networks, but several people have posted images of him on the plane in the direction of Cleveland. However, it should be noted that Monday Night Raw will be held tomorrow in Buffalo, NY, a city that is practically the same distance as Pittsburgh. Many media indicate that Hogan could appear in Extreme Rules, but if his return is official, it is likely that his appearance occurs tomorrow on Monday Night Raw.

Since winning the trial against Gawker Media, Hulk Hogan has resumed contact with WWE to make his return to the world of entertainment sports. Hogan was scheduled to return at the Greatest Royal Rumble event, held on April 27 at King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, but the plans changed. Hogan said in a later interview that the negotiations with WWE were in the right direction. “Things move in the right direction pretty quickly,” he said. “It’s about the execution and the time, the right place and the right time, but things are going in a good direction.”
In mid-May, Hogan and WWE intensified the talks to sign a new collaboration contract. According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer, a meeting between Hogan, Vince McMahon and Triple H was held on May 12 in order to reach an agreement and everyone came out very satisfied. Since his dismissal in 2015 for his racist comments, Hogan had disappeared from all media related to WWE because of his involvement. However, there have always been contacts between him and Vince McMahon for a return, which ultimately did not occur due to his sex scandal.
