Hulk Hogan's Full Team For WWE Crown Jewel Revealed

Including a new captain...

One entire team for the five-on-five tag team match at Crown Jewel has come together, as Friday night's episode of SmackDown filled in the gaps on Team Hogan, including the naming of a new captain.

That captain will be Roman Reigns, as revealed before SmackDown's main event, which pitted he and Daniel Bryan against Team Flair members King Corbin and Shinsuke Nakamura.

Two other team members announced for Hogan's squad include Ali, as well as Shorty G, formerly Shorty Gable, formerly Chad Gable.

Hogan announced Ali and Shorty G via a Skype call during the show, while the revelation of captain Reigns was made by ring announcer Greg Hamilton.

Seth Rollins bowed out of the match, and Hogan's team, earlier this week, due to his defense of the Universal title against The Fiend on the same show.

*WWE World: Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Cain Velasquez

*WWE Universal/Falls Count Anywhere: Seth Rollins (c) vs. The Fiend

*Braun Strowman vs. Tyson Fury

*Team Hogan (Roman Reigns, Rusev, Ricochet, Ali, and Shorty G) vs. Team Flair (Randy Orton, King Corbin, Bobby Lashley, Shinsuke Nakamura, and TBA)

*Mansoor vs. Cesaro

*Tag Team Turmoil: The New Day, Viking Raiders, The Revival, Lucha House Party, Heavy Machinery, The OC, Dolph Ziggler and Bobby Roode, Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder, and The B-Team.
