Hulk Hogan reinstated into WWE Hall of Fame
STAMFORD, Conn. — 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.

Jerry Lawler Says Removing Hulk Hogan From Hall Of Fame Was An Overreaction, Blames PC Culture

Jerry Lawler says WWE overreacted by removing Hulk Hogan from their Hall of Fame in 2015, blaming the whole thing on PC culture going too far.

Lawler was interviewed at Florida Supercon by The Roman Show and was asked about Hogan being reinstated into the WWE Hall of Fame over the weekend.

“I’m not shocked at all. I was shocked while he wasn’t in the WWE Hall of Fame,” Jerry replied. “I think the whole thing was kinda blown out of proportion. I’ve known Hulk Hogan his entire career and, for the claims about him being a racist, there was absolutely not one ounce of truth to that at all.”

It’s worth noting here, however, that there WAS truth to that. In an audio conversation that has since leaked online, Hogan himself is heard saying he’s racist “to a certain point.”

The King adds, “I just thought it was an overreaction that he wasn’t in the WWE Hall of Fame. It’s part of how we have to be so politically correct these days. And honestly I think we go too far overboard in being politically correct.”


Admitting to being a racist and dropping racial slurs in the same conversation......CURSE YOU PC CULTURE!!! :MJ:

Like dodgy movie directors and their great films. I tend to think you have to separate someone like Hulk's work as a wrestler with his personally comments. As it is a lot of people have said they don't think he's a racist, just that those comments were off.

Everyone deserves a second chance.

Hulk Hogan needs to come back....he's been gone the amount of years he dropped N bombs in that video, he's done his time.

Also.....the meddling Russians gained power in his absence.....that's not coincidence. Hulkamania stopped running wild and Putin rises
