WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan’s possible WWE return has been the subject of much debate over the past several months, with Hulk Hogan publicly stating numerous times that he wants to return to the company.
Hogan already confirmed via Twitter that he will not be appearing at Raw 25 on Monday night, but noted he will be watching the show from home.
In a new interview conducted for The Associated Press, via The Washington Post, Hogan had the following to say on Raw 25:
“Brother, if I’m not there, I’ll definitely be there in spirit,” Hogan said. “One way or the other, Hulk Hogan influenced each and every one of those guys you’re going to see on TV Monday night. And that includes Vince McMahon, too.”
On being terminated in July of 2015 by WWE following released audio in which Hogan could be heard using racial slurs, Hogan had the following to say:
“It devastated me. The bottom dropped out,” Hogan said. “It was just a situation that was unexpected; didn’t even know it was going on at the time. I was blindsided by it.”
Additionally, WWE issued a statement on a possible Hogan return, noting the company currently has no plans to bring The Hulkster back to TV.
“At this time, WWE remains committed to its decision,” said a WWE spokesperson.
In related news, Hogan has announced the following details on an upcoming Q&A with WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair:
