According to PWInsider, “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan might be returning to WWE pretty soon. PWInsider is reporting that WWE officials are in talks with Hogan for a return and the talks have been going on for a few weeks now.
WWE issued the following statement to PWInsider:
“We have had discussions with Terry Bollea (aka Hulk Hogan) about how he can help others learn from his mistakes, however, he is not under any contract with WWE.”
With that being said, Hogan will be appearing at a WWE related event for the first time since his WWE release in 2015 at next week’s premiere of Andre the Giant’s documentary in Los Angeles, California. WWE collaborated with HBO Sports for this documentary and Hogan was interviewed for this documentary.
It looks like WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2018 inductee Mark Henry isn’t happy with talks of Hogan’s return to the company.
Below is what Henry said about this story on Busted Open Radio:
“There are leaked videos of the Andre story on HBO coming up, on the 29th is the opening in Los Angeles, and he’s in it. It’s kind of a deal where you have to accept it. He’s a public figure. It doesn’t mean that everything that he’s done is forgiven, you just gotta take the good with the bad and see how you could help the situation.
I’m sitting on the chair of the delegation and they’re not ready. I’ve had many talks, with dozens of guys, and the consensus is there’s a lot of work to be done to heal that wound and to fix that wall.
The delegation is pretty much all of the more established African-American wrestlers in the country and in the world, for that matter. Every promotion… there’s not a wrestling promotion that doesn’t house someone from the delegation.
There’s gonna have to be more community service and outside work. Support for programs and even creative programs that deal with diversity in the workplace. I don’t process everything like everybody else. I believe that everybody should be given a second chance but I also believe that you have to own your issue, whatever that issue is. You gotta try to make closure on everybody else’s behalf, not just yours.”
