Hulk Hogan may be back in the WWE spotlight again, and even possibly reforming NWO, but he recently starred in a podcast where he was asked how he feels about the people who refuse to accept his apology for his racist remarks. Hogan had this to say:
“A lot of people accepted my apology. And a lot of people heard what they wanted to hear and a lot of the narrative that came out of the meeting was on point. A lot of the narrative was really different. I was surprised to hear some people interpreted what I said that I was just sorry I got caught. I’m on camera, whatever they interpreted, but I never said that. I just hope the brotherhood can get back to the way it was. Outside the ring, you’re supposed to protect your brother. In this case, it’s a situation where 75, 80, 90 percent of the wrestlers are protecting me and they’re giving me another chance to move forward. There’s just a few that don’t understand the bond and the brotherhood of wrestling. If someone makes a mistake, you need to forgive them and move on and try to let them prove themselves.”
Hogan is right that many wrestlers have accepted his apology, but of course, Hogan’s comments were of extremely sensitive and personal nature. Are you excited to see Hogan back in WWE? Do you think his apology was heartfelt? Sound off in the comments below!
