WWE Raw is trying to come up with bigger things as we kick things for 2019. Next week, we will get the first episode of the flagship show, this year. McMahon and Co. have already arranged huge things for the show. Three big returns, a championship match, and a new talk-show are official for the January 7th episode.

Plus, we have now learned that a legend will be back on WWE Raw to honor Mean Gene Okerlund. None other than Hulk Hogan is the concerned name who will be back onboard with a genuine purpose. This will be his first appearance on WWE Raw since the last three years. WWE cut all the ties with him during this span since the racial controversy broke out.

There has been a huge backlash towards Hulk Hogan due to this issue. Even if the court releases him off all the charges, the company did not wish to bring him back on TV. This could have created huge negative reactions from the fans as well as some of the superstars in the locker room. The return finally happened at Crown Jewel.

Alexa Bliss spoke about Hulk Hogan’s return to WWE

WWE did this in a purposeful way since the event took place in Saudi Arabia. They could dodge potential backlash from the USA fanbase as well as observe the overall reactions. Well, there have not been many negative feedbacks which is one of the reasons that Hulk Hogan is coming back on WWE Raw. WWE.com made this official on their website.

They have attached the noble cause of honoring Mean Gene Okerlund to bring out the sentiment issue. Here the present audience will not be booing the returning legend since he is out to pay tribute. Also, Hulk Hogan is the rightmost person to give a speech to the legendary interviewer. These two shared a bond throughout their career.

These two were together while working in the WCW as well as in the WWE, later. In 2014, WWE arranged a birthday celebration for Hulk Hogan where Mean Gene Okerlund was present to honor the Immortal One. Now it’s time for him to give it back to the greatest in-ring announcer to step foot in the pro-wrestling industry.

Earlier Hulk Hogan laid tribute to Mean Gene with the following statement,

“The best partner I ever had. We never rehearsed or did anything scripted from a writer. Gene would ask me “hey big man what do u want to do?” I would always answer “just follow you brother” and it worked from 1980 – 2017. RIP my brother HH”

We would see how WWE arranges the segment featuring the returnee on WWE Raw. Meanwhile, this announcement has created attention from the audience which is good for WWE Raw. The show takes place at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida.
