Booker T Backs Hogan – Booker T believes that Hulk Hogan should be given a second chance and sites his tenure in WCW with Hogan as a prime reason why he believes in Hogan.
The only thing Hogan can do is apologize, atone for it, and we move forward. Everyone deserves a second chance, that’s just the way I am. I talk about Hulk Hogan being in my corner back in the day… Back in day, if it wasn’t for Hulk Hogan, I don’t know if Booker T and Stevie Ray would’ve gotten the push that we got. Back in the day, Sister Sherri was an intricate detail, she was an intricate part of Harlem Heat and our success, and it was all because of Hulk Hogan saying, ‘those are the guys you should be putting your money behind.’
I’m not gonna take that away from him. I’m not gonna sit here and say, ‘no he should be blackballed, blacklisted from the game forevermore for saying something that a lot of us say on a daily basis.’ I don’t myself, but a lot of us do. So, I say let this man, who has done so much for the wrestling business, truly take his rightful place, and that’s back in the WWE.
