In a statement released to TMZ Sports today, WWE commented on the reports that the company are in negotiations about bringing Hulk Hogan back in some capacity “the right way”.

“WWE applauds the work Hulk Hogan is doing with Boys & Girls Clubs of America to turn what was a negative into a positive by helping young people learn from his mistake. While he has taken many steps in the right direction since we parted ways, Hogan is not currently under contract to WWE.”

Hogan has not appeared on WWE television since 2015, when the company cut ties with him, after audio featuring Hogan making a racist n-word rant went public.
