I think his time away and looking around at how many friends have passed has really gotten to him the past couple years. I think Savage and Warrior dying hit him hard but I think this was the toughest blow for him.
I agree, and I was impressed that he was able to turn it on for his promo when he had been in tears seconds earlier.  He stumbled a little, but it was a decent facsimile of an '80s Hogan promo.  When he started rattling off the guys who died who were all contemporaries, I thought the same thing that Hogan is almost one of the last men standing of the top stars from that era, and I think that effected him a lot.

I heard that he and Beefcake reconciled within the last year after many years of not being on speaking terms anymore (I have no idea why they fell out), so Hogan is hopefully at the point in his life where he's making amends.
I apologize for piggybacking, but I agree with all of this. Almost started to cry, to be honest.
