HULK Hogan could be set for a sensational return to WWE.
The 62-year-old wrestler was forced to resign in July after a controversial audio clip leaked of him using a racial slur in a 2007 sex tape but WWE Executive Vice President Triple H extended an olive branch to Hogan in a new interview on radio show 'Greg and the Morning Buzz'.
When asked if the wrestler could potentially return to the WWE, or the Hall of Fame, he said: "For me I hope so. It's about reinvigorating his brand and him as a human being and the confidence within the world as to who he is. But the one thing about people in general, when somebody is on top they love to see him fall and when they fall they love to see him make that comeback. They're great stories and I think that's where people are.
"Do I think he can be forgiven and make amends with the world and move forward? Ya absolutely. But at the same point in time for us in that time frame you're putting up a message to the world of how you'll tolerate things and how you'll react to things. And we did what we needed to do and he'll do what he needs to do to get himself back."
Triple H - who is married to WWE Chairman Vince McMahon's daughter Stephanie McMahon - indicated that he would be willing to discuss the situation with Hogan.
He explained: "Re-establishing who he is as a human being I'm sure is of utmost important to him and I'm sure he's gonna do it and when he does we'll go from there."
