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

The event, now airing on the WWE Network, marks Hogan's first appearance on WWE TV since the Summer of 2015.

In a one-on-one match, AJ Styles will look to defend his WWE Championship against Samoa Joe.

WWE Crown Jewel will start at 9:30 PM IST.

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

Unclear if the plan was to make Hulk a part of "Crown Jewel" all along - or if he was a last-minute Plan B after John Cena and Daniel Bryan refused to participate over the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

WWE Crown Jewel will take place at the King Saud University Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. 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.

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

Hulk Hogan's return to the WWE was going to be controversial no matter what, but this takes things to another level.

Which channel will live telecast WWE Crown Jewel? The ensuing cover-up of his murder has been exposed in recent weeks, and the WWE even reportedly considered moving the event, but that would have been in breach of a contract with Saudi Arabia.

Fans can watch it on the WWE Network for £9.99 per month with a free month trial if you subscribe immediately.

WWE informed the public that Crown Jewel was going to remain in Saudi Arabia by way of their third-quarter earnings report on its corporate website, saying, "Similar to other US -based companies who plan to continue operations in Saudi Arabia, the Company has made a decision to uphold its contractual obligations to the General Sports Authority and stage the event".
