- Speaking of Hogan, he looks to be in great physical shape. As noted, he did an appearance with Sting at the Ace Comic Con outside of Phoenix, AZ earlier this week. He posted the photo below of himself flexing in Phoenix, while challenging any current WWE stars to compare physiques with him. While some people took the challenge as a hint that he might be appearing at RAW 25 this Monday, we reported earlier this week that Hogan mentioned on Twitter that he will not be at RAW 25, but will "be home watching and cheering on my friends."
