Legendary Hulk Hogan returns to ‘Monday Night Raw’ - and we do not envy his rivals

Hulk Hogan is coming out of retirement at 65, and he looks great.

Hulk Hogan is a wrestling legend and has been sorely missed by his fans since he was fired from the WWE in 2015.

Now he is coming back to the ring on  WWE’s "Monday Night Raw" as a tribute to the recently deceased “Mean” Gene Okerlund.

Okerlund, who worked with Hogan from 1980 to 2017, died on January 2, 2019, at the age of 76.

“We never rehearsed or did anything scripted from a writer. Gene would ask me ‘hey big man what do u want to do?’ I would always answer ‘just follow you ,brother.’"

A LEAKED VIDEO BROUGH DOWN THE HULK

Hogan, who was one of the most popular pro-wrestlers of all time, was fired from the WWE after a video was leaked in which he made racist remarks about his daughter Brooke’s African-American boyfriend.

In the aftermath of the backlash of outrage from the media and the public, Hogan was removed from the WWE Hall of Fame and from the TV show "Tough Enough" where he was a judge.

Hogan is a twelve-time world champion: a six-time WWF World Heavyweight Champion/WWF Champion and a six-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion. 

REDEMPTION AND RETURN TO THE RING

Three years after Hogan's fall from grace, WWE star and vice president of talent, Triple H, hinted at his return:

“He’s obviously such a huge part of our history. There’s no denying his place in the business but he’s made some serious mistakes."

In July 2018, the WWE reinstated Hogan into the Hall of Fame, stating:

“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.”

Hulk Hogan is back, and he is raring to go, and promises fans some great moments in the ring, and some serious pain to his opponents.

THE LEGEND OF HULK HOGAN

The man most of the world knows as Hulk Hogan was born Terry Gene Bollea in Augusta, Georgia.

Hogan started out as a musician, playing fretless bass guitar in several Florida-based rock bands. In his spare time, Hogan worked out at Hector's Gym and met the wrestler brothers Jack and Gerald Brisco, who were impressed by his physicality. In 1976, the brothers persuaded Hogan to try wrestling, and the rest is history.

Hogan is a twelve-time world champion: a six-time WWF World Heavyweight Champion/WWF Champion and a six-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion. 

In a related story, the father of WWE Superstar Natalya, Jim Neidhart, known to wrestling fans as 'The Anvil,' has recently passed away at the age of 63.
