A source close to WWE spoke with Wrestleview.com today indicating that talks between Hulk Hogan and WWE have been taking place and that an "agreement in principle" is currently on the table. While it doesn't appear at this time that a deal has been finalized between Hogan and WWE, a verbal agreement has been discussed.
Hogan has a history of walking away on verbal agreements if he isn't happy with how certain aspects of a deal plays out (royalties is said to be a big one). This same source stated that WWE officials have no interest in Hogan wrestling.
So while an official deal hasn't been agreed to, we can confirms talks have taken place.
