• WWE Hall Of Famer Says It’s Time To Move On From Hulk Hogan Controversy

During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, WWE Hall of Famer Booker T was asked about Hulk Hogan being reinstated into the WWE Hall of Fame and Booker T said the following:

“There is not a building for the Hall of Fame, but the Hall is a very real thing. When guys get a chance to go on this journey and thank those fans for that ride, that’s extremely real.

It means a lot for those of us who have gone on that journey, and Hogan is one of those guys who has gone on that journey. If people still judged me from what I did 30 years ago, I would not be where I am now. But someone, a guy by the name of Bruce Gasarch, trusted me.

He said, ‘Man, I’m going to give you a chance.’ And that’s all I needed. Now I still have my broom, and I carry it around to sweep up all the dirt and trash I’ve left behind in my past.

Hulk is also going to have to carry that broom in his back pocket and atone for his mistakes. That’s the only thing we can do as human beings. Was the reinstatement right, was it wrong? That’s always going to be up for debate, but I think it’s time to move on.”

As we noted earlier, WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan confirmed that he’ll return to WWE programming at next week’s WWE Crown Jewel PPV.

Below is what Hogan said during an interview with the Orlando Sentinel:

“There are a lot of plans in the works. I’m looking forward to going to Saudi Arabia with the WWE, looking forward to WrestleMania — but yeah, we’re moving forward at a rapid pace. It’s exciting to have this opportunity again after all these years where I was there and gone.”
