Hulk Hogan is returning to the WWE for the first time since they terminated his contract in 2015.

According to the WWE, Hulk Hogan will return to Monday Night Raw on this next week’s episode.

What will Hulk Hogan do in his WWE return?

Hulk Hogan will make his official return to the WWE on Monday Night Raw next week and it is for a very obvious reason. Hogan will be there to honor Mean Gene Okerlund as a celebration of the life of the commentator.

When it comes to Mean Gene Okerlund, it is easy for any fan to immediately hear Hulk Hogan saying the classic line, “Well, you know Mean Gene…”

According to the WWE, most of Hulk Hogan’s classic interviews in the WWE came with Mean Gene Okerlund holding the microphone. That even transferred over to WCW where Mean Gene was the first person to interview Hogan after he joined the nWo.

Hulk Hogan was one of the first people to speak up when Mean Gene Okerlund died this past week. In a social media post, Hogan said that Okerlund was the “best partner I ever had” and pointed out their chemistry when doing interviews.

In the WWE press release, they said that Hulk Hogan will be on Monday Night Raw to honor his “brother,” whose relationship spanned decades, from WWE to the WCW and back to the WWE once again.

WWE Monday Night Raw airs every Monday night at 8 p.m. EST on USA Network.
