The past few years have seen a plethora of rumors suggesting that Hulk Hogan might be close to making a WWE return after previously getting fired for racist comments against African-Americans he allegedly made on a leaked video. With three years having passed since that leak, one of WWE's newest Hall of Fame inductees weighed in on Hogan's current situation, and explained why the pro wrestling icon should be allowed to work for the company that helped him become a pop culture phenomenon in the 1980s.
In an interview on CBS Sports' In This Corner podcast, Bill Goldberg answered a question from a fan who asked him whether Hulk Hogan should be allowed by the WWE to return to the company, and whether it's time for fans to forgive Hogan for the racially-charged remarks he supposedly said several years ago. While Goldberg admitted that it's not in his capacity to decide whether the WWE should welcome Hogan back, he also stressed that everyone "deserves a second chance" in the wrestling business.
"I think you put [Hogan] in the locker room and give him the floor and let him speak his mind. That's what he deserves. Who knows what happens from there but it's not for me to say by any means. I can just give you my opinion and say that he deserves the floor and who knows where it goes from there."
