Jerry Lawler On Hulk Hogan’s WWE Return


While the Extreme Rules PPV had some interesting talking points, the biggest news of the day had to be the WWE return of Hulk Hogan after almost 3 years of absence.

During his interview with The Roman Show at the annual Florida Supercon, WWE Hall Of Famer Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler talked about this and gave his thoughts on Hogan’s return. Below are some highlights from his interview:

Not being shocked with Hulk’s return:

I am not shocked at all. I was shocked while he wasn’t in the WWE Hall of Fame. I think the whole thing was blown out of proportion. I’ve known Hogan his entire career and for the claims of him being a racist, there was never not one ounce truth to that at all. Like I said, I’ve known the guy my whole life and he is a really good guy and I felt it was an overreaction. I think we go overboard being politically correct.

Being happy with his comeback:

I am happy he is back. I am hoping they (WWE) renew a working relationship. Let’s face it, without a doubt he is the most popular WWE Superstar of all time. It’s only right he should still be in the Hall of Fame and working in the WWE.”

Jim Ross getting injured at recent NJPW show:

I heard like you did. I spoke via text yesterday to JR several times. He didn’t mention anything about it in the text message, so I take that as something blown out of proportion as well.

Memphis Wrestling possibly heading to WWE Network:

We are working on something. Randy Hales was the owner of Memphis Power Pro Wrestling in the mid-90’s. He has put together his entire tape library, 153 shows, so we are going to go to WWE and see if we can put something on there. I also have a weekly show in Memphis called Jerry Lawler’s Classic Memphis Wrestling. We want to approach the WWE with that too.
