Bengaluru, Dec 2: Hulk Hogan was removed from the WWE alumni section, last year. All of his data from wwe.com as well as the company were deleted when he was accused of a racism scandal, last year. WWE wanted to erase the name of the immortal one from the history books and hence removed him from the Hall of Fame, as well.
The intention of WWE was pretty clear that they did not want the man back into the company. However, things have changed drastically since the Hulk star has won the lawsuit filed against him by the Gawker media and he was released of all his accusations. Going by the recent indications, Hulkamania may be running wild again around WWE.
In an episode of Stone Cold podcast with Big Show, they talked about the star on TV which was banned, previously. Also, on the Edge and Christian Show, he was mocked by the show hosts, which is supposed to be one indication, as well.
PWInsider.com reported that he was in the New York City to film some content for the WWE Network, recently.
Apparently, WWE is trying to bring him back prior to the Wrestlemania season. Rumours also suggest that he might be appointed as the Raw or Smackdown General Manager upon return. Triple H already admitted that they are intended to hire him back but they are not sure at this time when the time will be perfect.
Meanwhile, Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Newsletter already reported that WWE is hiring Hogan's voice for a few TV commercials to bring him back, slowly into the TV tapings. But, they are confused if bringing him back would harm their PR status.
Furthermore, Hogan's daughter Brooke Hogan also supported it by saying that there are some talks between WWE and him regarding Wrestlemania season.
But, the immortal one has denied all of this. However, he might be intentionally doing this since no contact finalisation has been done yet.
Hulk Hogan is one of the four WWE's franchises till date. The other three are Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, and John Cena. After completing his first stint WWE, he headed towards TNA and returned in the year, 2014 just prior to Wrestlemania 30.
