Hulk Hogan has been shunned from everything WWE related for more than a year now after historic racist comments were leaked to the media.
These comments cost WWE more than $50 million in a matter of hours after the comments were made public and this then forced WWE to resort to shocking measures to ensure that more stakeholders didn't back away from the company as well.
WWE removed Hogan's profile from their website and announced that he had been officially released, but now it seems that Hogan could be making his return to WWE as soon as WrestleMania 33 next year.

HOGAN TO RETURN AT WRESTLEMANIA 33?
Hogan has since won his case against Gawker Media, who were the company that leaked the comments that cost him his WWE career, and with this he has taken home $31 million, which has forced the company to sell up.
Hogan is now able to return to WWE and it seems that he would need to for the money after it was announced that he was going through an expensive divorce with his wife Linda.
According to a report by The Inquistr, Hogan's daughter Brooke was recently asked about if her father would return to WWE and the former TNA star commented that there were people contacting Hulk about a return at WrestleMania 33 next year.
She said: "I'll just say I know that people have been calling him...for WrestleMania."
WWE SET TO WELCOME HOGAN BACK
Since the WWE Hall of Famer won his lawsuit against Gawker Media, WWE has been much more open about using Hogan in their advertising videos and using him on the WWE Network, which means that the company no longer see Hogan as a threat to their investors.
Vince McMahon didn't actually want Hogan to leave in the first place, but the domino effect for the company meant that he was left with little choice. It was always said that Hogan would be welcomed back regardless when he was released, so it will be interesting to see how the WWE Universe welcomes him back if he is part of the biggest show of the year in 2017.
