HULK HOGAN could be set for a stunning return to WWE just two years after he was sacked by the company.

Hulk Hogan is reportedly set for a sensational WWE return
Now reports are claiming that the 64-year-old is on the verge of making a comeback for the 25th anniversary episode of Monday Night Raw in January.
Legends such as The Undertaker and Shawn Michaels have already been confirmed for the landmark occasion .
And Hogan’s potential homecoming would certainly raise a few eyebrows following his axing from the promotion in 2015 after audio emerged of him making racist remarks, leading to him being removed from WWE’s Hall of Fame.
The legendary Real American apologised for his comments, but wrestling officials removed all references to his legacy from their programmes and website.
