With his return to WWE being called a ‘done deal’, support from fellow Hall of Famers and even the rumored return of his daughter on the horizon, disgraced legend Hulk Hogan’s inevitable make-good with pro wrestling is upon us. The latest WWE Hall of Famer to back him up? Five-time (five time) WCW Heavyweight Champion Booker T.
On his show Heated Conversations, the member of Harlem Heat and infamous Hogan threatener shared his thoughts on Hogan’s various apologies, and whether or not he belongs as part of WWE’s image and history.
“The only thing Hogan can do is apologize, atone for it, and we move forward. Everyone deserves a second chance, that’s just the way I am. I talk about Hulk Hogan being in my corner back in the day… Back in day, if it wasn’t for Hulk Hogan, I don’t know if Booker T and Stevie Ray would’ve gotten the push that we got. Back in the day, Sister Sherri was an intricate detail, she was an intricate part of Harlem Heat and our success, and it was all because of Hulk Hogan saying, ‘those are the guys you should be putting your money behind.’”
You can watch the clip of Booker’s comments below.
“I’m not gonna take that away from him … I’m not gonna sit here and say, ‘no he should be blackballed, blacklisted from the game forevermore for saying something that a lot of us say on a daily basis.’ I don’t myself, but a lot of us do. So, I say let this man, who has done so much for the wrestling business, truly take his rightful place, and that’s back in the WWE.”
Alternate plan: Can we send him back to Australia and let him have hardcore matches with Brain Knobbs, away from television cameras?
