Hulk Hogan was a part of the WWE since July after a sex tape was released with him making racial remarks, and there is serious doubt over if he will ever be allowed back to the WWE one day. However, one highly respected member of the business is hopeful that he can return at some point in the future, Triple H.
The Game has said in a recent interview with Greg and the Morning Buzz show for New Hampshire radio station Z107, according to talkSPORT, that he hopes Hogan is able to do what he needs to do in order to come to the WWE one day.
He said: “For me, I hope so. It’s about reinvigorating his brand and him as a human being and the confidence within the world as to who he is. But the one thing about people, in general, when somebody is on top, they love to see him fall and when they fall, they love to see him make that comeback.

"They’re great stories and I think that’s where people are. Do I think he can be forgiven and make amends with the world and move forward? Yeah, absolutely. But at the same point in time, for us in that time frame, you’re putting up a message to the world of how you’ll tolerate things and how you’ll react to things. And we did what we needed to do, and he’ll do what he needs to do to get himself back.
“And it’s not, to me, at the end of the day for him, how he’s perceived by the world, him as a human being, I’m sure is a lot more important to him than anything else. And re-establishing who he is as a human being I’m sure is of utmost important to him, and I’m sure he’s gonna do it, and when he does, we’ll go from there.”
The Game and The Hulkster have clashed in the past, most notably at the Backlash pay-per-view in 2002 for the Undisputed WWF Championship, with Triple H entering the contest as champion. The Cerebral Assassin lost the match to Hollywood Hulk Hogan, as he was known at the time.
Many fans would love to see Hogan back in the WWE one day because he is such an icon and a huge part of their history that simply can not be overlooked. If he is welcomed back, the argument will be made that other superstars that have done controversial things to the same degree should be allowed back as well.
It's a tough call to make.
