Even though Hulk Hogan has been welcomed back into the WWE fold, people bringing up the racist things he said on tape continues to worry him.
In 2015, Hulk Hogan proved that not even the biggest name in the wrestling business is untouchable. After recordings of the Hall Of Famer saying some incredibly racist things emerged, WWE cut all ties with him. The Hulkster was deservedly cast out into the cold. However, last year he was welcomed back into the WWE family.
Hogan's return began with the former WWE Champion addressing the locker room. The address was apparently recorded and might well feature on a WWE documentary somewhere down the line. However, the way in which some Superstars reacted to what Hogan had to say might mean it never sees the light of day. Apparently, it felt more like Hogan was sorry he got caught rather than truly regretting what he said.
There is a chance that Hogan has now won over those who were skeptical backstage. Big E tweeted that he and The Hulkster had a good talk over WrestleMania weekend. However, Hogan admitted on Booker T's Hall Of Fame podcast this week that those comments still haunt and worry him. "The people that keep bringing it up and keep pushing it forward…those are the people I worry about," Hogan admitted to Booker and his listeners.
Due to the comments being made in 2006, and not made public until 2015, Hogan also claimed he doesn't even remember saying them. He was also sure to highlight that he is in no way claiming he didn't say those things. Hogan admits that it is him in the recording and even though he doesn't remember saying those heinous things, he deeply regrets doing so nonetheless.
Sadly for Hogan, those comments will likely follow him around for the rest of his life and career. Not everyone is going to forgive what he said and considering the severity and offensive nature of the comments, that is entirely understandable. He currently finds himself back under the employ of WWE against all odds and he will just have to accept that some wrestlers and fans don't agree with that.
