The legendary wrestling commentary - who was a regular fixture for the sports entertainment brand across the 1990s and 2000s - has called for the superstar to appear at the upcoming show in Saudi Arabia because he is beloved by so many fans there.

Speaking on his own podcast 'The Ross Report', JR said: "Why wouldn't you have Hulk Hogan there? So to me it just makes sense that you'd figure a way to have Hogan on the card.

"Let the folks see him that grew up idolising him in that part of the world. Does it play in all parts of the world? Hell, I don't know.

"I don't know, but I think it would be a massive hit, with great publicity and build great anticipation in Saudi Arabia if the Hulkster was on the card."

The 'Crown Jewel' event - which takes place on November 2 at the King Fahd International Stadium - will mark the second time the company has hosted a pay-per-view event in Saudi Arabia following the success of the 'Greatest Royal Rumble' in April.

Jim's comments come after his fellow WWE Hall of Famer was reinstated by the company over the summer three years after the transcript of a tape was leaked in which he uttered racist language, using the 'N-word' to describe his daughter Brooke Hogan's ex-boyfriend.

WWE said in a statement on its website: "After a three-year suspension, Hulk Hogan has been reinstated into the WWE Hall of Fame. This second chance follows Hogan's numerous public apologies and volunteering work with young people, where he is helping them learn from his mistake. These efforts led to a recent induction into the Boys & Girls Clubs of America Alumni Hall of Fame."

Hogan - whose real name is Terry Bollea - is said to have addressed the entire roster backstage at the 'Extreme Rules' event in July, and he later went to Twitter to thank them for the support.

He wrote: "Just met with the @WWE Superstars and on all levels the volume of love and support was overwhelming.

"I've been praying for this day and I finally feel like I made it back home. Only Love 4 the #WWEUNIVERSE brother HH"
