WWE News: Why Hogan's Going on Japan Tour, Darren Young Injury Update
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 04.30.2014
Plus why is talent being asked to name finishers?
- As previously reported, Hulk Hogan is going on WWE's tour of Japan in July. The reason for doing so is to boost ticket sales there, where their popularity has been sagging somewhat. It has apparently worked as ticket sales spiked as soon as Hogan was announced. This is his first wrestling-related appearance in the country in over ten years.
- Darren Young should be back in the ring in either September or October. Young injured his ACL earlier in the month and had to undergo surgery.
- We previously mentioned that WWE is asking its talent roster to come up with their own names for their finishers, instead of just calling them traditional wrestling names. This is so that the company can trademark the names, as they are unable to trademark terms like "suplex," "power bomb" or "body slam."
