WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan is backstage at the WWE Extreme Rules PPV and met with the WWE locker room to formally apologize for his leaked comments that were racially insulting and led to his 2015 firing from the company.

According to several WWE sources who were present at the meeting, Hogan spent a long time apologizing for what he said and for hurting others and embarassing the company with his comments.  Hogan then took time to remind everyone to always remember to think about what they are saying, pointing out that in today's day and age, they have to remember that there are always cameras everywhere and they could be recorded even when they don't realize they are.   We are told the talents gave Hogan a big reaction at the end and a number of them were shaking his hand and hugging him at the end of the meeting with Hogan getting very emotional.

Hogan acknowledged the meeting on his Twitter account this afternoon, writing: has been told Hogan may be at this week's WWE TV tapings, but that is still to be determined as of this writing.  WWE brought Hogan to the PPV in advance of today's announcement that the company has officially reinstated him into their Hall of Fame.  Before his meeting with the WWE locker room, Hogan also met with a number of WWE officials.  

The feeling backstage among the wrestlers is that Hogan is back on board with the company, but has not officially confirmed this to be correct.
