Mark Henry Feels Hulk Hogan Hasn't Redeemed Himself Yet After Racist Tirade
WWE Hall Of Famer Mark Henry recently spoke with the folks from Heavy.com for an interview. During the discussion, “The World’s Strongest Man” spoke out about WWE bringing Hulk Hogan back into the fold at their recent WWE Crown Jewel pay-per-view in Saudi Arabia.
Henry claimed Hogan needs to “do a bit more” to fully redeem himself following the racist comments he made that led to him being taken out of WWE’s Hall Of Fame before ultimately being reinstated a few years later.
“I wasn’t going to roll out the red carpet and start going to have dinner with him if he wasn’t willing to do all the s**t that I said he needed to do,” Henry said. “To start, he needs to go to some of these black universities, to these law students and let them grill him and own it and apologize. Not because you got caught, but apologize because you honestly feel remorse. He said that he found God and he touched my heart when he said that, because I know what God will do, so if God touched him, God will also say speak up, and when you reveal your past, you can go on in the future and I still don’t think he’s still completely revealed it.”
Henry also touched on other wrestlers’ feelings about Hogan returning to the company.
“There’s been a mixed bag on how to resolve it,” Henry said. “I’ve had people being like, ‘to hell with him’ and I’ve had people going, ‘you know what, if he do this and he do that, OK.’ It’s up to him, It’s not up to me.”
