Rumors have been swirling recently that WWE and Hulk Hogan have been in talks about a possible return for Hogan to WWE.

Hulk Hogan was recently interviewed by The Buffalo News and commented on the reports.

On wanting to redeem himself:

“Everybody gets knocked down. A true champion gets back up and moves forward in a positive way. Nobody ever said life would be fair or you’d always make the right decisions, but through tenacity and a willingness to learn from your mistakes is what I’m all about.

“People know me. I’m human being like anybody else, and sometimes, people make mistakes. When they do, you watch that person a little bit more closely than you did before to see what kind of person they really are. I just want people to judge me by my actions, not a few misspoken words.

“To those few fans who feel (hurt), I’m forever sorry, and I’ll do whatever I can to make them feel comfortable with me.

“Wrestling fans are some of the most true, loyal fans you can ever meet, and whether you’re in a good situation with your business and personal life, or you slipped on a banana peel and gone through some bad times, the wrestling fans will never turn their back on you.”

On rumors of a return to WWE:

“Until you hit a home run, it’s not a home run. All these things say it’s imminent or rumors, that’s like saying ‘maybe, possibly, could be.’ Until I’m back home with the WWE, I’m not home. Hopefully some day I can go back home and be with my family, the wrestlers and all the people I love. I just really, really hope it happens.”
