WWE has confirmed that Hulk Hogan has been re-inducted into the Hall of Fame following a three year absence.
Back in 2015 Hogan was removed from the company’s HoF after recordings of him making racial slurs surfaced.
However, after a number of public apologies and taking responsibility for his mistakes, he’s back.
In a statement, WWE said: “After a three-year suspension, Hulk Hogan has been reinstated into the WWE Hall of Fame.
“This second chance follows Hogan’s numerous public apologies and volunteering to work with young people, where he is helping them learn from his mistake.
“These efforts led to a recent induction into the Boys & Girls Clubs of America Alumni Hall of Fame.”
Hogan is somewhat responsible for a large amount of the promotion’s mainstream success, having been the face of the company throughout the 80s and early 90s.
The famous red and yellow attire, coupled with his unforgettable catch phrases made in a global megastar, propelling WWE to new heights.
In 1994 Hogan left WWE, jumping ship to WCW where he would create even more history, joining the NWO, who would help change not only WCW, but the wrestling business itself.
Eventually, after Vince McMahon bought WCW and all its rights, Hogan, along with original NWO members Scott Hall and Kevin Nash, would return to the company that created him, beginning a new era.
He was originally inducted into WWE’s Hall of Fame in 2005, along with Rowdy Roddy Piper, Cowboy Bob Orton, the Iron Sheik, and more.
