Ross offered some advice to the former WWE Champion, saying he should just lay low for a while, and wait for the right time to hype up a possible comeback.

He said: "I thought Hulk showed up well on ABC (Good Morning America). The only thing I can tell him is that brother to brother, just let her go. Back away from Twitter for a while, right now is not the time to hype a comeback.
"As much as folks want to see Hulk in one more match, you know come on, every fan wants to see one more great in one more match. Who the hell do you know who doesn’t want to see one more great in one more match.

"You don’t think fans want to see Steve Austin or The Rock or Edge or Ric Flair at 65 in one more match. Why not? If I was Hulk, I would let this thing lay low, I would lay low and I would do good things, good works, off the record.
If Hogan wants fans to start backing him again, rather than just seeing him for his recent racial tirade tape release, Ross suggested a different way of trying to achieve that.
He said: "To resurrect your image and feel good to do it. Donate to charity, don’t do it to make good headlines. Do it because you want to. That creates good karma and if you do or do not believe in good karma, good karma goes around and comes around.
"That’s how I would address that, I would keep my a** off Twitter, I wouldn’t sure as hell be hyping a comeback. I would go on a diet, get in better shape and have one more match brother. Not now, please.
"Someone needs to get Hulk some better advice. Just lay out man, just lay out brother and let things get back to normal. We know you’re not a racist, but every time you bring it up, you bring it up. So let it go.”
Ross is correct. Hogan could return to the WWE or to wrestling as a whole one day. Right now though, whilst the feelings of many fans are so raw after what was exposed, the best thing for him to do would be to lay low for a while.
