WWE reinstated Hulk Hogan into the prestigious Hall of Fame earlier this month and The Hulkster was officially back with the company after issuing an apology to the entire roster prior to the Extreme Rules Pay-Per-View.

Hall Of Famer Jim Ross recently took to his podcast, The Ross Report, to offer his thoughts on Hogan’s new role in WWE

Ross admitted that he’s not all that surprised to see The Hulkster back with the WWE, and doesn’t know what the punishment should be for “something so stupid”:

“It’s not a surprise,” Ross argued. “Hey look, what Hogan did is just so sad, and unnecessary, and what a major mistake,” Ross said. “I think he knows that. Now, somewhere down this journey of healing, if we find out that Hogan [has] got a different agenda, well, shame on him. I don’t believe that to be true. But I believe I’m willing to stand back and let this whole process play out and see how it works at the end of the day…I don’t know how long we’re supposed to punish somebody for doing something so stupid.

“Now make me proud that you’re back and do great things. He has an amazing opportunity with his influence and name identity, does Hogan, to leave lasting positive impressions on everybody, no matter their ethnicity.”

As for what Hogan’s possible role with WWE will be, Ross predicted more of a PR role and doesn’t expect fans to see him competing inside the ring anytime soon:

“Without sounding like an a*****e, [Hogan]’ll probably have a [WWE] Hall Of Fame role.” Ross explained, “PR, he [has] got a lot of ground to cover. He [has] got some fences to mend, some bridges to repair, but that could be done. I don’t see him wrestling again. He’s 65 years old. Now, I’m not knocking the guy. It’s not. ‘J.R., look at you!’

“I’m not Hulk Hogan. I never even played him on television. Could Hogan have a one-off somewhere? Of course he could! ‘Well, where do you do that?’ Hell, you do that in New York City at WrestleMania. That’s what you do! But is that what you really need to do? He’s 100 [%]. He’s got a bad back.

“He’s a warhorse, man. He’s been battered and beat up. So I think it’ll be more of a PR role. I’m glad that he’s back and it give him more motivation to make himself better, without a doubt.”
