Hulk Hogan Gets Reinstated To The WWE Hall Of Fame After 3-Year Suspension

It’s been 3 long years since the WWE suspended its relationship with Hulk Hogan after his sex tape leaked which featured him dropping N-bombs left and right. This afternoon, the WWE officially ended the suspension and reinstated him to the WWE Hall of Fame.

Statement from the WWE:

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.

The Hulkster has basically spent the last three years in court suing the everliving out of Gawker and trying to rebuild his image after the sex tape/N-bomb fiasco. I guess the WWE figured that after about 3 years, most people have either forgotten this even happened or forgiven Hogan. We all know how important he is to the company and it’ll definitely be good for them to have him back in the mix.

No surprise this comes hours before a Pay-Per-View tonight
