Hulk Hogan may not have made it to Saudi Arabia for WWE Crown Jewel 2019 if not for the aid of Brock Lesnar, who flew to 'The Hulkster's' aid earlier this week.
As reported by Pro Wrestling Sheet yesterday, Hogan suffered significant travel hiccups with his connecting flight from Iceland, with a hard landing "causing the tires to blow out and the brakes to melt." Unfortunately, this rendered the plane unflyable.
Hogan and fellow passenger Jimmy Hart were stranded. Fortunately, one of Hogan's friends just happened to have landed at the same airport and had space to scoop Hulk and Jimmy up, flying them to Saudi Arabia.
That friend? WWE Champion Brock Lesnar, according to PW Insider.
Imagine the banter Lesnar and these three geezers would have had on a private jet all the way to Saudi Arabia. Sounds like a hoot and a half, brother.
Hogan will "coach" a team comprised of Roman Reigns, Rusev, Ricochet, Shorty G, and Ali against the Ric Flair-led Randy Orton, King Corbin, Bobby Lashley, Shinsuke Nakamura, and Drew McIntyre in what will likely be the night's main event. Lesnar defends his WWE Championship against Cain Velasquez.
