Hogan was fired from the organization after leaked audio from a sex tape revealed him making some extremely racist remarks:
I don't know if Brooke was f***ing the black guy's son. I mean, I don't have double standards. I mean, I am a racist, to a point, f***ing ******s. But then when it comes to nice people and shit, and whatever. I mean, I'd rather if she was going to f**k some ******, I'd rather have her marry an 8-foot-tall ****** worth a hundred million dollars! Like a basketball player! I guess we're all a little racist. F***ing ******.
However, when that happened, way back in 2015, you could lose a gig at the world's largest pro wrestling company despite being one of its quintessential historical personalities, for making racist remarks in private. Now, as we prepare to enter 2017, making racist remarks in public can get you elected president. Times have changed, clearly, so a return for Hogan is imminent, as well as an appointment to Donald Trump's cabinet in the department of prayers and vitamins.
If it happens, Booker T is all for it (the WWE return, that is). Pointing out that he went to prison as a young man and had a second chance himself, Booker T told TMZ, "Hulk Hogan made a mistake. Every man deserves a second chance. If he gets back in , I'm gonna support him 100%, because I remember being that kid in WCW and he supported me 100%."
The position marks a reversal for Booker T as well as American society, as Booker once told Hogan:
