Hulk Hogan may be headed back to the WWE.
Hogan, maybe the greatest of all time. Hogan picked up mainstream popularity between the mid-1980s and early 1990s in the WWE. He would join World Championship Wrestling in the 1990s where he often performed as villainous New World Order (nWo) leader.
Hogan headlined the premier annual events of the WWE and WCW, WrestleMania and Starrcade, multiple times. He has also worked for other promotions such as American Wrestling Association (AWA), New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA).
During his professional wrestling career, he is a twelve-time world champion: a six-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion/WWE Champion and a six-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion. He was the first wrestler to win consecutive Royal Rumbles, in 1990 and 1991 respectively. Hogan was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2005.
Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WWE is revisiting the idea of bringing Hulk Hogan back.
Hogan's WWE return has depended on the company being reasonably sure that bringing him back won't cause a big backlash due to his racist comments debacle from 2016. It’s possible that WWE hires him in an Ambassador role.
Hogan was in talks about a return to wrestling of late, but not with WWE. It would have reportedly been an angle that would have been huge, but in the end, it wouldn’t have made economic sense.
The WWE Legend recently did an interview with OBJECTified on FOX News to talk about the incident and opened up about how WWE handled the situation by firing him. Hogan revealed that after everything went down he really didn't expect to get fired by WWE, which took him by surprise.:
"When I heard this was going to happen, I called them on a Thursday or a Friday. As I hung up the phone that night, they fired me in the morning," Hogan said.
"It really caught me off guard, I didn't expect it because the WWE knows who I am. I'm not that person, that's not who I am and that's not what I do."
"I think they did what was best for business," he said. "They were worried about losing sponsors and network support. It was tough, it hit me hard," Hogan said. "When you look at a 40-year career, it's just gone."
