On Sunday night, WWE confirmed that Hulk Hogan has been reinstated into the Hall of Fame. 

Understandably, most fans think that means one thing - that he's in-line for a return to the promotion. 

HULK'S BACK?

After his controversial exit back in 2015, it was unclear if Hogan could ever return to WWE - but after this weekend's events, that looks closer than ever. 

The wrestling icon was spotted flying to Ohio on Sunday - and it's believed he then made the trip to Pittsburgh, to join up with everyone else at Extreme Rules. 

That was all later confirmed, with Hogan himself tweeting about what happened backstage ahead of the pay-per-view. 

"Just met with the @WWE Superstars and on all levels the volume of love and support was overwhelming," he wrote.

"I’ve been praying for this day and I finally feel like I made it back home. Only Love 4 the #WWEUNIVERSE brother HH."

APOLOGISING FOR HIS ACTIONS

According to PW Insider, the reason Hogan met with superstars backstage was to formally apologise for the racial slurs that got him fired three years ago.  

On top of that, he apparently also said sorry for embarrassing the company - and after he was done, received a big reaction from those in the locker room. 

PW Insider sources have suggested that many were shaking Hogan's hand and some were even hugging him - but that may not tell the whole story.

A SPLIT REACTION

Former WWE star Mark Henry has revealed that the locker room was actually split on Hogan's message. 

"I do feel like he genuinely wants to clear his name. He sees people that used to respect him, they look at him different. And it hurts," Henry told TMZ, per NoDQ.

"He brought that on himself. But, he’s trying his best to clear that up."

"It’s 50-50. I’ve talked to guys that were like, ‘Man, the hell with him'," the former wrestler turned WWE producer continued.  

"And I had guys that were like, ‘You know what, man, if you’re willing to make a change and try to help out and go and speak up and be a part of the answer rather than a part of the problem, then it’s all good."
