Hulk Hogan's daughter Brooke claims that you should never rule out a return to the ring for her father, or even for Ric Flair.
Hulk Hogan is a WWE icon. Despite The Rock and John Cena becoming household names over the past few years, for most people, the first name that pops into their heads when they think of pro wrestling is The Hulkster's. That's why his attempted scrubbing by WWE from their history is a bitter pill to swallow.
What makes that pill even harder to swallow is why Hogan is almost completely absent from their current programming. When a man who, for many, was a childhood hero has a sex tape released and then has a recording leaked of him making some extremely racist remarks, it's pretty hard to watch. WWE has been a lot more lenient towards The Immortal One's name being used on their television recently though. Plus, Hogan is starting to appear in ads for the WWE Network, so maybe a come back is on the horizon.
Hulk's daughter, Brooke Hogan certainly seems to think so. TMZ caught up with the 12-time World Champion's daughter who stated that we should never rule out a come back from The Hulkster. "Wrestling is always in your heart," Brooke told TMZ, adding "he's been known to make crazy decisions and make comebacks." Brooke also revealed that she and her father spoke with Ric Flair recently, saying that he's doing well and wouldn't even rule out a comeback for 'Naitch since guys like him are "indestructible."
Brooke isn't the only one with a Hulk Hogan come back on her mind. Hulk himself took part in a Q&A on his YouTube channel last week, asking fans if they would like to see him return to professional wrestling. Whether WWE would welcome Hogan back at this point is another thing entirely, but it would certainly seem that if they want him, The Hulkster would be more than willing to oblige.

Fans are likely extremely split on the thought of Hulk Hogan returning to WWE. While most fans aged 25 and above grew up on Hogan in some form or fashion, it is extremely hard to forgive what got him black balled from the company in the first place. At WrestleMania 33 this year, WWE proved that they don't need a run-in from an old, retired star to pull off a great show, and with that in mind maybe there isn't a place for Hulk Hogan in present day WWE.
