Last year, Hulk Hogan was fired from the WWE due to a sex tape that was first made public by National Enquirer which included the WWE Hall of Famer making racist remarks.

Hogan has since sued the media company Gawker because of their actions, and he managed to pick up a sum of $140 million, added up from two different rulings after the Florida courts decided to side with him.

The former WWE superstar is now in the process of suing the business for the second time over claims they leaked sealed documents to the National Enquirer revealing racist comments made in the 2007 sex tape.

The main question many fans have wondered since he was first fired by the WWE is will he ever make a return in the future.

After Hogan's legal inquiries are over, the WWE will likely make their intentions clear as to whether they'll ever take The Hulkster back. It all depends on what their feelings are towards the man. Triple H has said he is open to him returning, but whether or not that will happen remains to be seen.

Mr. T - who made iconic appearances in the WWE at WrestleMania I and WrestleMania II and who is a friend of Hogan - recently appeared on Ring Rust Radio, according to Wrestling News Post. Here, the WWE Hall of Famer spoke about the WWE, including his feelings towards The Hulkster after his racist remarks.

He said: "I don’t have a problem with Hulk Hogan. People say things and do things, and who am I to judge? I am a Christian, and the bible teaches me to forgive. So what am I going to say? The man did something wrong. The whole operation with how it happened was bad with him being filmed and everything. I’m mad at his buddy. Hulk loved the guy, and he betrayed him, but that is life.

"Judas betrayed Jesus. Lady Red betrayed John Dillinger. Those things happen. If Hulk Hogan called me, I would talk to him. I wouldn’t cut him off for what he did. I haven’t lost any respect for him. Everybody has done something that we wish we didn’t say or do and wish we could take it back. He is still cool with me."

Black wrestlers in the WWE had mixed opinions on The Hulkster when the comments first emerged, and the company's actions towards it, so some of them won't be happy if he makes a return in the future.

With Hogan being such a big figure in WWE history, it's next to impossible for the company to forget he even existed. The question is if he will ever be forgiven by the company for what he has done. As previously mentioned, The Game is open to having him back, but is Vince McMahon?
