WWE releases statement on Hulk Hogan’s return

Hulk Hogan

Former World Champion Hulk Hogan had recently spoken to APNews about not appearing at the Raw 25th-anniversary show and claimed that he would like to have one more match in WWE:

“Brother, if I’m not there, I’ll definitely be there in spirit, One way or the other, Hulk Hogan influenced each and every one of those guys you’re going to see on TV Monday night. I don’t know if they want me back. I think the fans want me back. I think that I’m part of that company from the ground up. I might have that one more match where I really beat the hell out of Vince. I’ve still got one in me.”

Considering this and the fact that Triple H had said in a recent interview that he is open to the idea of the Hulkster returning to the company, a lot of fans wondered if it will be happening anytime soon.

However, after this news picked up, the company released a short statement to The Associate Press on the matter and said that they are still committed to their decision:

“At this time, WWE remains committed to its decision”

WWE released Hulk Hogan from his contract back in July 2015 after the racial remark controversy, stating that they are “committed to embracing and celebrating individuals from all backgrounds”,

    I think that is what a lot of people forget when they go on their “bring back Hogan or its not a real celebration” rants.
    Yes he has appeared on Raw since his return to the company from WCW, but his impact on Raw is minimal.
    Same goes for guys like Sting and Goldberg etc. They may have appeared on Raw, but that does not mean they are a big part of it.

    Guys like Taker (first main event match of first ever Raw), Stone Cold, Rock, Jericho and DX etc, these are the true legends of Raw.

    I really don’t Hulk as an integral part of the history of RAW though. The Monday Night Wars of course, but not as a part of what built RAW.
