It's time to lift some weights, brother...

What's the story?

It turns out when you're out of the WWE Family, you're never really out. Even though WWE has seemingly wiped Hulk Hogan from their history books, the WWE Hall Of Famer is said to be on his way back to being reinstated into the hallowed halls of Vince's Museum of Muscle Men once more.

Hogan inspired so many who got into the business and continues to be a treasured part of the pro wrestling community. WWE Performance Coach and pro wrestler in his own right, Steve Corino recently had the chance to hang out with The Hulkster and shared an incredible message in the process.

In case you didn't know...

Steve Corino is a coach at the WWE Performance Center now, but before then he was an announcer for ROH. Even before that, he had quite a career as a performer in the ring.

The heart of the matter

It's pretty crazy how life can work out sometimes. Corino recalls that on January 6th, 1983, he was watching Hulk Hogan wrestle at the first live pro wrestling event he ever attended. Now, 35 years later he's working out alongside The Hulkster.

It's a pretty great turn of events and speaks volumes to how much pro wrestling can mean to people and stick with someone through all these years.

On that night 35 years ago, Hogan signed a young Corino's program and today he's lifting weights beside him. Time has a very interesting way of developing, brother.

On a side note, both Corino and Hogan look great so they're obviously no strangers to the gym.

What's next?

It would be nice to see Hulk Hogan back in WWE's good graces soon enough.


After all, many backstage believe it is time for The Hulkster to return.

They just don't want to run the risk of Hogan winding up in a sticky situation if he's asked about the reason why WWE distanced themselves from him in the first place.

Author's take

Steve Corino has worked very hard to be where he is today and he was inspired early on by people like Hulk Hogan. It's a pretty cool picture that he shared and a story too which only goes to show how much Hogan means to people

There are millions of fans with stories like Steve Corino's. Only they might not work for WWE.
