Pro wrestling legend Hulk Hogan spoke with the folks at The Buffalo News on Tuesday to promote an upcoming autograph signing in the area.
During the interview, "The Hulkster" addressed the fans who are still upset with him over his racially insensitive comments that led to his release from WWE in 2015.
"People know me," said Hogan. "I’m human being like anybody else, and sometimes, people make mistakes. When they do, you watch that person a little bit more closely than you did before to see what kind of person they really are."
Hogan continued, "I just want people to judge me by my actions, not a few misspoken words. To those few fans who feel (hurt), I’m forever sorry, and I’ll do whatever I can to make them feel comfortable with me.”
Regarding his WWE comeback status, Hogan said, “Until you hit a home run, it’s not a home run. All these things say it’s imminent or rumors, that’s like saying ‘maybe, possibly, could be.’ Until I’m back home with the WWE, I’m not home. Hopefully some day I can go back home and be with my family, the wrestlers and all the people I love. I just really, really hope it happens.”
