WWE Has Reinstated Hulk Hogan Into The Hall Of Fame

He was originally inducted to the WWE Hall of Fame in 2005 but the organization cut all ties with him in 2015

Crediting the "second chance" to a string of public apologies and volunteer work from Hogan, WWE appears to be paving the way for Hogan to return to making appearances on behalf of the company, whether on television or otherwise.

Hogan has since been on an extensive public apology tour in an attempt to make amends.

Hulk Hogan hasn't appeared on WWE programming since he was sacked in 2015, but he recently said in an interview that he was working toward a WWE return.

A graduate of Robinson High School, Hogan, now 64, rose to fame in the 1980s as the ultimate good guy and champion of what was then called the World Wrestling Federation.

This announcement by WWE comes one day after multiple fans spotted Hogan at a Cleveland airport.

After Gawker published a portion of the sex tapes, Hogan sued.

Brexit referendum Q&A: is another poll becoming more likely?
It is thought that global development secretary Penny Mordaunt, work and pensions secretary Esther McVey and Brexit minister Suella Braverman could resign in the coming days.

After a three year absence from WWE following the release of a racist and profanity laden tape, Hulk Hogan is officially back in WWE. The feeling at Extreme Rules was that Hogan is back with the company and Charly Caruso noted on the Extreme Rules Kickoff pre-show how everyone was excited for Hogan to be back with the WWE family.

Several black WWE Superstars expressed displeasure and shock at Hogan's comments, including Booker T, Mark Henry and Titus O'Neil.

There's now talk of a possible TV return, but not everyone thinks the WWE should have forgiven him.

In 1994 he took his self-proclaimed "24-inch pythons" to the rival World Championship Wrestling until it was purchased by the WWE in 2001. The report states that Hogan received a strong reaction afterwards, and a number of wrestlers started shaking his hand and hugging him.
