Hogan was body-slammed with a three-year suspension following a sordid audio emerged of the grappler unleashing a racist rant on a 2012 sex tape.

PW Insider has reported that Hogan spent a great deal of time in the locker room with the current WWE superstars and staff, apologizing for his remarks and his embarrassment of the company.

Just hours before presenting its Extreme Rules pay-per-view on Sunday, WWE announced that it has "reinstated" Hulk Hogan into the WWE Hall of Fame following a "three-year suspension".

In a statement released on Sunday, the organization said this is his "second chance" after his innumerable public apologies and volunteering with children's programs.

It looks like we'll be seeing more of Hogan in the future, as Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer noted that his backstage apology was filmed for an upcoming WWE 24 special.

In recent months, there have been numerous reports that WWE has been considering bringing Hogan back to the company. Following his speech to the locker-room, Hogan received a strong reaction, and a number of wrestlers started shaking his hand and hugging him. Hogan sued (and won) Gawker after the company released portions of a sex tape that was recorded without Hogan's knowledge or consent.

The WWE Hall of Fame features over one hundred wrestling legends, as well as people associated with World Wrestling Entertainment - like US President Donald Trump. "I've been praying for this day and I finally feel like I made it back home".

Hogan later called the 2007 incident the "biggest mistake" of his life.

Interestingly, Peter Thiel, the inventor of PayPal, funded Hulk Hogan $10 million in his fight against Gawker, due to the publication's frequent attacks on Thiel's sexual orientation.
