Booker T responds to Hulk Hogan being blacklisted from WWE


There's no doubt that Hall Of Famer Hulk Hogan is at odds with WWE and its Superstars over his comments leaked out on a personal video several years ago.

A few years ago a personal video from Hogan was leaked online and he could be heard making some highly racist comments.

Of course, WWE acted accordingly by terminating their contract with The Hulkster and essentially blacklisted him from the company.

Years later, Hogan has been trying like crazy to earn the forgiveness of his fans and make amends in regards to his relationship with WWE.

There have been several reports throughout the past few months suggesting that Hogan and WWE are in talks to have him return to the company.

Every time a report suggests Hogan and WWE are in talks, however, WWE issues out a statement indicating no deal is currently in place.

Of course, many black WWE stars are at odds with Hogan potentially returning to the company. Many black WWE stars have expressed their issues with Hogan and would like a formal apology before any reunion with the company takes place.

One black Superstar who seems to be on the opposite side of things is none other than WWE Hall Of Famer and former WCW World Heavyweight Champion Booker T.

In a recent episode of his radio show, Heated Conversations, Booker T explained why he doesn't think Hogan should be blacklisted by WWE (quotes via Cageside Seats):

“The only thing Hogan can do is apologize, atone for it, and we move forward. You know everyone deserves a second chance, that’s just the way I am.

"I talk about Hulk Hogan being in my corner, you know back in the day. Lot of the boys may look at me and say what is Booker T talking about?

"Back in day, if it wasn’t for Hulk Hogan, I don’t know if Booker T and Stevie Ray would’ve gotten the push that we got.

"Back in the day, Sister Sherri was an intricate detail, she was an intricate part of Harlem Heat and our success, and it was all because of Hulk Hogan saying, ‘ hey man, those are the guys you should be putting your money behind’ I don’t know if Hulk Hogan made any money off that.

“I’m not gonna take that away from him. I’m not gonna sit here and say, ‘no he should be blackballed, blacklisted from the game forevermore for saying something that a lot of us say on a daily basis.

"I don’t myself, but a lot of us do. So, I say let this man, who has done so much for the wrestling business, truly take his rightful place, and that’s back in the WWE.”
