With recent reports surfacing indicating that WWE Hall Of Famer Hulk Hogan is in talks to return to the company, fellow Hall Of Famer Booker T took to his radio show, Heated Conversations, to offer his thoughts on the matter. Here’s what he had to say:
“The only thing Hogan can do is apologize, atone for it, and we move forward. Everyone deserves a second chance that’s just the way I am. I talk about Hulk Hogan being in my corner, back in the day and a lot of the boys they may look at me and say, ‘Why is Booker T talking to [Hogan]?’ Back in the day, if it wasn’t for Hulk Hogan, I don’t know if Booker T and Stevie Ray would have got the push that we got.
“Back in the day, Sister Sherri was an intricate detail to Harlem Heat, and our success, and it was all because of Hulk Hogan. Saying ‘Hey man, those are the guys you need to put your money behind.’ I’m taking that ‘word’ and put it over to the side, and let that man take his rightful place back, which is in this business. I’m not going to take that away from him.
“I’m not going to sit here and say ‘No, he should be blackballed or black listed from the game, forevermore!’ for saying something a lot of us say on a daily basis. I don’t myself, but a lot of us do. Let this man who has done so much for the wrestling business truly take his rightful place back in the WWE.”
