Hulk Hogan Makes Controversial Return To WWE's Hall Of Fame

PERTH AUSTRALIA- NOVEMBER 24 Hulk Hogan gestures to the audience during his Hulkamania Tour at the Burswood Dome Hulk Hogan Makes Controversial Return To WWE's Hall Of Fame

Earlier today, WWE.com announced that legendary wrestler and American icon, Hulk Hogan, is being reinstated into the WWE Hall of Fame after a 3 year suspension due to the use of racial slurs during a recorded conversation with his son, Nick (who was in prison at the time because of the brutal vehicle accident he caused).

Hulk Hogan announced via Twitter that he met with the WWE locker room at the Extreme Rules event in Pittsburgh on Sunday.

In a statement released on Sunday, the organization said this is his "second chance" after his innumerable public apologies and volunteering with children's programs. These efforts led to a recent induction into the Boys & Girls Club of America Alumni Hall of Fame.

Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, was sacked by WWE on July 24, 2015, when new portions of the sex tape, which was part of his multi-million dollar lawsuit against Gawker over its publication, revealed him using the N-word in discussing his daughter Brooke's sex life. In a lawsuit against Gawker, the wrestler eventually won a $115 million settlement, which effectively ended Gawker's reign of terror.

The 64-year-old made his professional wrestling debut in 1977 and was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2005 by Sylvester Stallone.

Many news sources had reported that a deal was in the works, but it seems that Hogan was in the building just for the Network special, as confirmed by WWE themselves.

"I hope it can happen", Bischoff said. They live to hate. "But I don't think people value that kind of negative input as much as they used to because people recognize it for what it is, and that's people who want to be noisy and get attention".

Hulk Hogan's has been wrestling since the 1970s and is widely regarded as one of the greatest wrestlers ever.

Hogan was previously removed from the Hall of Fame due to remarks from a racist rant he made were leaked online.
