Hogan continues after the package is done, saying that he can speak for the other WWE Superstars that they love him, and even though Okerlund isn't here any more he is in everyone's hearts.

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.

In the past 12 months, Hogan has publicly apologized and also addressed the WWE locker room. The organization even reinstated him into their Hall of Fame after a suspension. That happened at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia in November. Okerlund would return in 2001 when WWE bought WCW.

He made his return to RAW tonight in Orlando to remember "Mean" Gene Okerlund. Growing up like you guys said in the mid-80s I was in high school and college watching him do his thing and I would imitate Mean Gene with any microphone I could find.

WOOOOOOOOOOO! According to a report from PWInsider, WWE legend Ric Flair will be appearing on Raw this coming Monday. "The culmination of their friendship came when Okerlund stepped into the ring himself as Hogan's partner opposite George 'The Animal" Steele and his manager Mr. Fuji in 1984.

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

'RIP my brother HH, ' Hogan concluded.

Don't miss this milestone moment on Monday Night Raw, beginning at 8/7 C on USA Network.

There has been speculation that WWE offered a contract worth several million dollars per year, but that has not been confirmed. While AEW probably can't match such a deal, Omega does know the key players very well from their time in Bullet Club and The Elite.
