Hulk Hogan set for WWE Raw return this Monday to honor late friend 'Mean' Gene Okerlund Hulk Hogan to commemorate ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund’s death in special WWE appearance

Okerlund was a veteran announcer for the WWE, conducting countless interviews with Hogan during the sports entertainment league's heyday in the 1980s.

A number of years ago, Hogan was suspended from the WWE Hall of Fame as a result of racist and hateful comments made towards black people. Hogan, who also served as a judge at the time on the WWE reality show "Tough Enough", was sacked two months later. The organization even reinstated him into their Hall of Fame after a suspension. He did appear in the opening segment of Crown Jewel back in November, but WWE never followed up on the story.

WOOOOOOOOOOO! According to a report from PWInsider, WWE legend Ric Flair will be appearing on Raw this coming Monday.

Hogan looked to get sincerely choked up when bidding Okerlund goodbye, having to put on his sunglasses to hide the emotion.

Baylor Women End No. 1 UConn's Years-Long Winning Streak
Thursday's game was UConn's first regular-season loss in regulation time since February 18, 2013, ending a run of 163 games. Still, UConn, whose only lead was at 2-0, dug out of an early hole, eventually tying the score at 32 in the third quarter.


Okerlund stayed with WCW until 2001, when he returned to the WWE in a variety of different capacities.

As of right now there's no word on what Flair's role for the show might be, but there's speculation that he could be honoring "Mean" Gene Okerlund like Hulk Hogan is set to do. The show will also a non-title match between The Usos and SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Bar, with a title shot on the line.

'Gene would ask me "hey big man what do u want to do?" Their training sessions before that match, which can be seen below, were perhaps even more entertaining than the bout itself. On Monday night, Hogan honors his brother. If WWE did make such an offer, it would be to keep Omega from joining AEW.

Omega has not addressed what is next, but he did post the following interesting tweet after his loss at Wrestle Kingdom 13.
