Could Hulk Hogan be returning to WWE?
According to Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the idea of Hogan returning to WWE was recently revisited by organization officials.
As has been the case in the past, his return hinges on whether sponsors would be okay with it and perceiving if there would be a media backlash where the racist quotes come out.
Hogan was in talks about a return to wrestling of late, but not with WWE. Meltzer says the angle would have been huge, but in the end, it wouldn’t have made economic sense. There is also a feeling that it would wind up as a tease and he would not go through with the angle, and it would just be his angling to get WWE to bring him back. Hogan has done this in the past as he would use outside promotions as leverage for Vince McMahon to bring him back to WWE.
