Hulk Hogan closing in on a deal to return to WWE

Hogan was fired by the WWE in 2015 shortly before an incriminating tape with him making racist remarks surfaced. The iconic wrestler, who wasn't pleased with his daughter Brooke dating a black man, used the n-word several times in the tape.

Wrestling legend Hulk Hogan and WWE are batting eyes at each other, and that potential contract talks are "positive," according to TMZ.

 

The news of Hogan's return swirled ahead of the Greatest Royal Rumble event in Saudi Arabia, where the 64-year-old was requested to appear at the event. Hogan didn't participate, but the two sides are apparently close to terms.

 

Interestingly enough, the WWE had said in March that there weren't plans to have Hogan back in the organization.

Hulk Hogan is an important part of Andre the Giant's history, however his appearance at tonight's HBO premiere of the documentary and his plans to help others learn from his mistakes does not mean WWE is rehiring him. Hogan is not scheduled to be at any upcoming WWE events.

Hogan was fired by the company in 2015 shortly before an incriminating tape with him making racist remarks surfaced. The father-of-two, who wasn't pleased with his daughter Brooke dating a black man, used the n-word several times in the tape, and also said, "I guess we're all a little racist."

 

Hogan was inducted into the Boys & Girls Club Hall of Fame on Thursday. In his ovation-garnering speech - which the WWE surely learned about - mentioned the wrestler having the desire to help educate kids not to use offensive language.
