Backstage Rumors on Hulk Hogan Possibly Wrestling For WWE Again
WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan recently appeared on The Howard Eskin Show in Philadelphia. During the interview, Hogan was asked if there were any wrestlers that he really didn’t like over the years. Hogan responded by saying that he got along with everyone.
“No, there’s nobody that I dislike, I don’t hate anybody,” Hogan said. “I know over the years I’ve had a couple of wrestlers get in the news or tell people how much they dislike me or what a cancer I was but I never had those feelings the other way towards any other wrestlers. I’ve never had a problem with anybody. Most of the guys I wrestled are really good people.”
After Hogan left the interview, Howard Eskin may have revealed some backstage news that Hogan will be wrestling for WWE again.
“The Hulkster, he really is a good guy and we didn’t talk about it, because it’s not done yet but it’s all but done, he’s coming back to the WWE and from what I understand, and again, we didn’t talk about it, he’s going to wrestle again at an event,” Eskin said. “[Hogan is] coming back to WWE. It’s not done yet but it is all but done. The Hulkster will be back!”
As previously reported, WWE and Hogan are said to be close to signing a new deal that would see him return to the company. WWE officials were said to be closely watching Hogan’s Boys & Girls Clubs of America Alumni Hall of Fame speech last week to see how the public reacted. WWE officials reportedly want to bring Hogan back but they want it done “the right way” and they want to make sure that they remain sensitive to people who were offended by his racist comments back in 2015. WWE issued the following statement in response to last week’s reports:
“WWE applauds the work Hulk Hogan is doing with Boys & Girls Clubs of America to turn what was a negative into a positive by helping young people learn from his mistake. While he has taken many steps in the right direction since we parted ways, Hogan is not currently under contract to WWE.”
