Hulk Hogan Makes Controversial Return To WWE's Hall Of Fame

16 July 2018

Hogan, now 64, was originally inducted into the Hall in 2005.

A fellow WWE Hall of Famer, five-time WCW champion and one-time heavyweight champion, Booker T agreed that Hogan deserves a second chance, saying on his radio show that "the only thing Hogan can do is apologize and atone for it and we move forward".

Following Hulk Hogan's three-year suspension that left him without employment in the WWE, the legendary wrestler was reinstated and couldn't be happier. The feeling at Extreme Rules was that Hogan is back with the company and Charly Caruso noted on the Extreme Rules Kickoff pre-show how everyone was excited for Hogan to be back with the WWE family. Additionally, Hogan is said to have made a formal apology to the WWE locker room for his comments that were leaked in 2015.

The WWE terminated its contract with Hogan in response - although, at the time, his lawyer said he resigned. Take this as pure speculation for now as it would be odd for Hogan to make his big WWE return at Extreme Rules rather than an episode of Raw or even at SummerSlam next month but crazier things have happened in pro wrestling.

Following the news, he is now once again a member of the WWE family, and a WWE statement revealed that after many apologies and attempts to rectify the situation, Hogan has learnt his lesson.
