WWE announced that Hulk Hogan will appear on Monday’s Raw to host a tribute to the late Gene Okerlund. Read the official announcement at WWE.com.
Powell’s POV: Hogan was friends with Okerlund and they had some great moments on television together. At the same time, I can’t help but feel like WWE officials see this as a safe way to get Hogan back on show for the first time since the the racist statements he made to his son Nick in a jailhouse conversation and during a recorded conversation with Heather Clem went public.
