Another Hall Of Famer Set To Appear On Tonight's WWE Raw

Another Hall Of Famer Set To Appear On Tonight's WWE Raw

Hulk Hogan returned to Monday Night Raw for the first time in almost four years to celebrate the life of Mean Gene Okerlund, who passed away last week at the age of 76. In his first appearance on Raw in four years, Hogan paid tribute to the man he called the best partner he ever had.

Not only was Okerlund the main backstage interviewer during Hogan's landmark as then-WWF champion in the 1980s, he followed Hogan to WCW in 1993 and shared the ring with him three years later when Hogan famously turned heel at "Bash at the Beach" and formed the nWo with Scott Hall and Kevin Nash.

Hulk Hogan is making his return to the WWE.

The crowd in Orlando broke out a "Thank You Mean Gene" chant, and Hogan turned back the clock with one of his signature promos. We never rehearsed or did anything scripted from a writer. He'll appear Monday (January 7) as part of a tribute to Gene Okerlund, who died last week.

His son, Todd Okerlund, revealed that he had three kidney transplants and his health was failing in the weeks leading up to his death. In fact, Hogan getting reinstated in the Hall of Fame drew a lot of criticism from fans who believed that Hogan will not change his ways, and the apology he issued after his racist comment got leaked was half-hearted, and looked staged. Some African-American WWE superstars took to social media to give tell their fans what went down and how they felt.
