The WWE has finally addressed the possibility of bringing back this Hall of Famer.
And that WWE Legend is Hulk Hogan. It’s been well documented that 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.
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, New Japan Pro Wrestling and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling.
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 has reported in the previous edition of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WWE is revisiting the idea of bringing Hulk Hogan back.
Hogan told Dan Gelston of the Associated Press that he would like to return to WWE.
“I don’t know if they want me back,” Hogan said. “I think the fans want me back. I think that I’m part of that company from the ground up. Triple H I know is a huge fan of the guys that gave their blood, sweat and tears and their personal life to make this happen. I know Triple H would love to see me back on the inside again.”
WWE issued the following statement on Hogan’s status with the company: “At this time, WWE remains committed to its decision.”
For those who are wondering about him appearing on Raw 25, Hogan has since shot down that idea of a possible return.
