Marking almost 10 years in existence - the very first "Extreme Rules" took place in 2009 and featured an absolutely incredible main-event match between Jeff Hardy and the inimitable CM Punk for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship - tonight's event promises to hold a bevy of surprises for even the most hardened smart marks. Hulk has been in talks with WWE honchos to be brought back into the fold, though the wrestling legend wanted it done the right way. He even referenced the scandal while being inducted into the Boys & Girls Club Hall of Fame earlier this year. Hogan eventually won a $115 million settlement in the suit.

It remains to be seen what WWE's plans are for Hogan now that he is back in the fold with the company, but it will certainly be interesting to follow in the coming weeks and months now that Hogan appears to have made amends with WWE and its superstars. Rumors are running wild he has signed some sort of a new deal with WWE but nothing has been confirmed to this point. "You could cure every disease known to man and, still, someone's going to hate you. No place in society for [his comments]" and "Hulk Hogan is a racist". We are kind of a second chance culture in the United States.
Hogan was previously removed from the Hall of Fame due to remarks from a racist rant he made were leaked online. "To those few fans who feel [hurt], I'm forever sorry, and I'll do whatever I can to make them feel comfortable with me".More news: "Sue the European Union" - Donald Trump's advice to Theresa May
