Here are some reactions to Hulk Hogan... Mark Henry spoke to Busted Open Radio about Hogan's return to the WWE fold. "...I'm hoping he is able to address everybody and voice some concerns. He made an announcement. He apologized... He's like, 'Mark I'll do whatever. Because I want people to see my heart, not what I said anymore. It's an embarrassing thing. I go places and I see people giving me a look I'm not used to getting and it's been that way since that time.' He said, 'I can't live with it like that. I gotta fix it.' And I was like, 'great, you're willing to fix it? I'm willing to help.'" Henry has said there’s a "50-50 split" amongst black wrestlers in the company. The New Day posted a collective statement saying the following... "... We are not happy, or sad, angry or resentful. Who WWE puts into the HOF is totally and completely up to the company and from a career standpoint, there is no argument on whether or not Hogan should have his place...." "On a personal level, when someone makes racist and hateful comments about any race or group of people, especially to the degree that Hogan made about our people, we find it difficult to simply forget, regardless of how long ago it was.. But we also do not respond with more feelings of hate. Instead, we just do not associate with the people who convey or have conveyed this negative and hurtful mindset." Check out Kofi Kingston's Twitter for full statement. The Pope Elijah Burke postedd his personal experience of knowing Hogan and also his faith to define his forgiveness. "Now, being that Pope is a believer I personally believe in forgiveness. Not just from God above, but from your peers among you. To forgive is to release yourself from a certain stronghold moreso than it is for the individual you are forgiving... While consequences are often a result of such error, your error shouldn’t be your definitive story." Cedric Alexander used Twitter to share his happiness for Hogan coming back. And it is being reported that Titus O'Neil walked out of the backstage meeting at Extreme Rules on Sunday! #HulkHogan #ExtremeRules #WWE #Racism #BlackWrestlersMatter #BlackWrestlingAlliance #BlackStarsShine
