It appears Hulk Hogan's return to WWE could be hours away.
WWE sent out a release today saying that Hogan has been reinstated into the WWE Hall of Fame: "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 Club of America Alumni Hall of Fame."
A photo of Hogan and Jimmy Hart at the Cleveland airport surfaced yesterday which started speculation Hogan would be appearing at tonight's Extreme Rules pay-per-view. The show is in Pittsburgh, but him flying into Cleveland was likely to make sure fans staking out the Pittsburgh airport didn't see him.
PWInsider reported that the two were in Cleveland and noted the proximity to Pittsburgh and a WWE source informed us that Hogan was back, without elaborating on anything else.
Hogan was fired from WWE and removed from their Hall of Fame in July 2015 when a racist rant where he used the n-word multiple times was made public.
