Mark Henry has a way for Hulk Hogan to make a return to the WWE, one that he says will allow everyone in the organization to forgive him for good.
Hulk has to apologize, again, but this time to all the existing black talent currently wrestling for the organization.
“I think after an apology to all of the existing African-American talent that he would — we’re a forgiving world,” Henry told TMZ Sports.
While out in New York City, Henry was asked what he thought of Hogan’s chances of returning to WWE is since he’s been angling for a comeback.
Despite being one of the most important wrestlers in WWE history, the company excommunicated Hogan in July 2015 after racist comments he made were posted online as part of his leaked sex tape.
Not only did WWE terminate Hogan’s legends contract, it also removed him from its website in both the “Alumni” and “Hall of Fame” categories. The company has largely refrained from using any archival footage or mentioning Hogan by name in any capacity on WWE programming since then as well.
Hogan’s last WWE appearance came at WrestleMania 31 in March 2015. He joined reunited the nWo with Scott Hall and Kevin Nash and came to Sting’s aid in a match against Triple H.
During an interview in January with the Associated Press’ Dan Gelston, Hogan said he could “go out and tear WrestleMania down” if given another opportunity. WWE, however, told Gelston in a statement that they had no plans to change their stance on Hogan.
“At this time, WWE remains committed to its decision,” WWE said in the statement.
Hogan spoke to TMZ Sports two weeks ago and commented on his desire to get back to WWE and “correct a lot of stuff.”
“A lot of the wrestlers I stay in contact with, I have a lot of friends up there [in WWE],” Hogan said. “A lot of people in the office, they all know who I am. For me, I’d love to change that last story that was told with the Hulk Hogan career. I’d love to get back in the fold, get back on the inside and correct a lot of stuff.”
