Hulk Hogan appeared via Skype on SmackDown tonight to reveal his full five-man team to take on Team Ric Flair at WWE Crown Jewel on October 31.
Already announced were Ricochet and Rusev. Captain Seth Rollins was pulled earlier this week following the announcement he’d be defending the Universal Title in a Falls Count Anywhere about against The Fiend Bray Wyatt at Crown Jewel.
Hulk Hogan first declared Shorty G and Ali as his new team members, but left revealing the new captain for later in the show.
And then it was Greg Hamilton who had the pleasure of announcing the new team captain – Roman Reigns.
He simply did this during Roman’s entrance before the Reigns & Bryan vs. Corbin & Nakamura tag team main event.
Earlier in the night, Reigns had challenged Nakamura for the IC Title, but Corbin clobbered him with his sceptre to cause a DQ. Bryan then came out to equalise and the tag bout was made.
That means the teams are now as follows:
Team Hogan: Roman Reigns, Rusev, Ricochet, Shorty G, Ali
Team Flair: Randy Orton, King Corbin, Bobby Lashley, Shinsuke Nakamura, one more TBA
