We don't know if he was fired or resigned, but what we do know is that if you search Hulk Hogan on WWE's website, you'll find no trace of his existence.
The Hulkster issued an apology after reports surfaced that the WWE fired him following racist remarks that were made years ago. A report by the National Enquirer no less. Some media outlets were saying he used the N-word towards Dwayne The Rock Johnson.
“Eight years ago I used offensive language during a conversation. It was unacceptable for me to have used that offensive language; there is no excuse for it; and I apologize for having done it. This is not who I am. I believe very strongly that every person in the world is important and should not be treated differently based on race, gender, orientation, religious beliefs or otherwise. I am disappointed with myself that I used language that is offensive and inconsistent with my own beliefs.”
Hogan‘s lawyer told People that “he decided to resign from WWE because he didn’t want to put them or his family through this.”
However, earlier on Friday the World Wrestling Entertainment media team released this statement:
WWE terminated its contract with Terry Bollea (aka Hulk Hogan). WWE is committed to embracing and celebrating individuals from all backgrounds as demonstrated by the diversity of our employees, performers and fans worldwide.
The alleged rant can be heard in the leaked unauthorized sex tape of the wrestler with his friend's wide. In it he uses the N-word along with other racist works. The Enquirer says he "directed his vulgar and prejudiced hatred at his daughter Brooke, who he accused of sleeping with a black man.
Using language so hate-filled and vile it would shock even his most ardent fans, Hulk brazenly blustered to Heather Clem – the wife of his former pal Bubba “The Love Sponge,” with whom he was covertly filmed having sex with in 2012 – that he was an unabashed 'racist.' 'I guess we’re all a little racist," he crowed on the tape."
What a way to ruin your legacy.
