It appears as though Hulk Hogan may soon be on his way back to the WWE after having the company cut ties with him after Gawker released some racial slurs in his sex tape.
Hogan recently won a lawsuit against Gawker, causing the company to go out of business. Shortly after that the WWE decided it best to cut ties with ‘The Hulkster’ by removing quite a bit of content of his from the WWE Network, however, they have slowly been re-adding content over the past few weeks.
It has been speculated over the past few weeks that WWE is slowly but surely bringing back Hogan to ‘test the waters’ with his return to the company, and much speculation has been made as to when his potential return could take place.
According to a report from Ring Side News, Hogan could be making his return as soon as Wrestlemania 33 season, or at the actual event itself. Ring Side News also reports that the massive concern with bringing Hogan back is the potential backlash they will receive from the African American fan base following Hogan’s racial comments.
The more time the WWE takes with Hogan’s return will be better for the former WWE Champion’s return, as it gives the WWE Universe time to forgive and forget the incident as time heals all wounds.
You can read some of Hogan’s racial slurs, courtesy of The National Enquisiter, here below:
“I guess we’re all a little racist,” he crowed on the tape, multiple sources have confirmed exclusively to The ENQUIRER.
“She is making some real bad decisions now,” Hulk said, sources tell us. “My daughter Brooke jumped sides on me. I spent $2-3 million on her music career, I’ve done everything like a jackass for her.”
“I don’t know if Brooke was f*cking the black guy’s son,” Hulk raved, the sources add.
“I mean, I don’t have double standards. I mean, I am a racist, to a point, f*cking n*ggers. But then when it comes to nice people and sh*t, and whatever.”
“I mean, I’d rather if she was going to f*ck some n*gger, I’d rather have her marry an 8-foot-tall n*gger worth a hundred million dollars! Like a basketball player!
“I guess we’re all a little racist. F**king n*gger.”
Truely disturbing to hear a man so idolized as ‘The Hulkster’ use such hateful words. If a WWE return is in fact in his near future, the WWE might want to consider a bit more time for a return rather then thrusting him right back in at Wrestlemania 33.
