Hulk Hogan removed from WWE website

|

In a developing story early Friday morning, WWE has removed all mentions of WWE Hall of Famer and former champion Hulk Hogan from their website. He is also not listed as a judge on the reality wrestling competition Tough Enough any longer.

WWE has not commented on why they have disassociated themselves from the legend, but there are rumors swirling that a “racist” clip of audio has been making the rounds on YouTube. The news was originally reported by Wrestlezone.com

Below is a clip of audio that is reported to be the reason WWE has distanced themselves from Hogan. Some language may be offensive.

If you ask me, there is nothing racist about that clip except for the fact that he did say the N-word. He was telling a story about Booker T, a former WCW and WWE wrestler and current analyst on the programs, and how he used to mess around with him and call him that.

If you don’t know the situation Hogan is referring to, watch the below video clip.

Hogan posted a cryptic message on Twitter late Thursday night following the breaking news.

The situation is definitely an interesting one and you will want to keep with Campus Sports as more information becomes available.
