No matter what happens, it's had to distance Hulk Hogan away from the WWE.

The Hulkster is the primary reason the company is the juggernaut it is today and without the American hero, the early WrestleMania's wouldn't have been nearly as successful.

However, in 2015, the WWE was forced to sever ties with the 64-year-old after he was caught on camera making several racist remarks.

Hogan has suffered the cold shoulder of the biggest wrestling promotion in the world since, but with his appearance in the upcoming Andre the Giant documentary, many believe that the door is open for the 12-time world champion to make a stunning return.

Mark Henry, who is set to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame next week, isn't quite ready for the Hulkster to return.

”There are leaked videos of the Andre story on HBO coming up, on the 29th is the opening in Los Angeles, and he’s in it," Henry told Busted Open Radio. "It’s kind of a deal where you have to accept it. He’s a public figure. It doesn’t mean that everything that he’s done is forgiven, you just gotta take the good with the bad and see how you could help the situation. I’m sitting on the chair of the delegation and they’re not ready. I’ve had many talks, with dozens of guys, and the consensus is there’s a lot of work to be done to heal that wound and to fix that wall.”

”There’s gonna have to be more community service and outside work. Support for programs and even creative programs that deal with diversity in the workplace. ... I don’t process everything like everybody else. I believe that everybody should be given a second chance but I also believe that you have to own your issue, whatever that issue is. You gotta try to make closure on everybody else’s behalf, not just yours.”

TMZ caught up with Hogan a week on from Henry's remarks to ask him what he thought about the former Strongest Man in the World's comments, and he had a humble reply.

"I totally agree with him, not to the black wrestlers, to all the wrestlers. What I said was way out of line and I'm forever sorry for that," said Hogan.

Can Hogan ever rebuild his reputation and make a return to the WWE?
