Legendary wrestling great Hulk Hogan has hinted that he is interested in returning to the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), but in due course as the deal is not on the table yet .
Hogan, 64, real name Terry Gene Bollea, was fired by the WWE in 2015 after several recordings emerged in which he reportedly made racist comments.
There was much speculation on whether Hogan would be returning to the WWE, especially when it was reported that the Saudi royal family wanted him to return at the Greatest Royal Rumble PPV that happened last month.
On the wake of the recent speculations, Hogan made it clear during an interview with the The Buffalo News that he was not with WWE yet. He however, claimed he would like to return to the organisation as soon as possible.
“Until you hit a home run, it’s not a home run, Hogan said. “All these things say it’s imminent or rumors, that’s like saying ‘maybe, possibly, could be.’
“Until I’m back home with the WWE, I’m not home. Hopefully someday I can go back home and be with my family, the wrestlers and all the people I love. I just really, really hope it happens.”
Hogan also talked about the leaked racist tirade that got him fired years ago in the same interview. He admitted that he made mistakes but that people shouldn’t have judged him on them.
“People know me. I’m human being like anybody else, and sometimes, people make mistakes. When they do, you watch that person a little bit more closely than you did before to see what kind of person they really are. I just want people to judge me by my actions, not a few misspoken words. To those few fans who feel (hurt), I’m forever sorry, and I’ll do whatever I can to make them feel comfortable with me.”
