It appears like The Undertaker will have some company on February 24th.
PWInsider is reporting that Hulk Hogan and Jimmy Hart will be appearing on the same episode of Raw, the night of the WWE Network launch.
It has been widely reported that Hogan will not be wrestling at WrestleMania XXX, as he did not pass a physical, but that hasn’t stopped any speculation.
Rowdy Roddy Piper has said that he wants to be in a match with Hogan at WrestleMania, he doesn’t care if it’s singles or tag, he wants a match. Piper even took to Twitter to voice his desire:
FOR THE RECORD!! I CAN PASS THE PHYSICAL AND WLD FIGHT HOGAN ON A DIME!! !

Seeing Hogan and Piper in a match at the 30th WrestleMania, after they were part of the match that headlined the first, would be fantastic, but only for nostalgic purposes. That being said, Hogan doesn’t have to be in a match to excite the crowd, neither does Piper for that matter. A Piper’s Pit segment in the middle of the show would probably suit these guys much better, because Hogan is not in good enough shape to be in a match, whether he can technically pass a physical or not.
Besides, it would be a shame if these guys took away a spot from a young guy who deserves it. At least in a Piper’s Pit segment, these guys can do their thing, and stand tall at the end, but still give a boost to a young talent, which is exactly what they should be doing anyway.
