Powell’s POV: It seems to be only a matter of time before Hogan returns to the fold, but there’s no telling what role he will play. Hogan was fired in July, 2015 when racist comments he made while secretly being filmed went public. Hogan delivered an induction speech at the Boys & Girls Club Alumni Hall of Fame on Wednesday. The TMZ story notes that WWE officials were paying close attention to how Hogan was received. The appearance went well so we’ll see what happens next.
