WWE Reinstates Hulk Hogan After N-Word Suspension
On the eve of the Extreme Rules PPV event, WWE is ready to let bygones be bygones with wrestling superstar Hulk Hogan and reinstate him back into the Hall-Of-Fame.
On Sunday, WWE released the following statement regarding Hogan’s return.
After a three-year suspension, Hulk Hogan has been reinstated into the WWE Hall of Fame. This second chance follows Hogan’s numerous public apologies and volunteering to work with young people, where he is helping them learn from his mistake. These efforts led to a recent induction into the Boys & Girls Clubs of America Alumni Hall of Fame.
Hogan, aka Terry Bollea, was released by the company after a recording surfaced of him using racial slurs. In addition to firing the Hulk, WWE removed Hogan from their website and all merchandise from the online store.
Hogan has been spotted at today’s PPV and tweeted the following on his reception from the other WWE superstars and staff.
Just met with the @WWE Superstars and on all levels the volume of love and support was overwhelming. I’ve been praying for this day and I finally feel like I made it back home. Only Love 4 the #WWEUNIVERSE brother HH
