I watched his sex tape, dude is packing a fuckin thermos
WWE has removed all references to Hulk Hogan from its pages.
The National Enquirer is apparently going to run a story about a tape they have where Hogan uses the n word ... a lot
More Details on Hulk Hogan and WWE Potentially Parting Ways
Cryptic tweet from the Hulkster himself today
Hulk Hogan on Twitter:

You know what this means though!!!
Thats right, Vice President Hogan baby!!!!

Would vote for Trump/Hogan no ragrets.
Now I just wonder what the hulkster thinks about whores and playboy playmates. And peanut butter M&M's. A real thing, or a cheap reeses pieces knockoff?
Inquiring minds want to know.
Apparently he's been removed from the WWE website and mention of him being in the WWE hall of fame etc...
The WWE will remove anyone for anything to cover their own asses, they can always put him back if this turns out to be nothing
Still love how they had an entire episode of Raw dedicated as a rather touching Chris Benoit memorial. Then the next day it's like Chris who? Nobody by that name has ever wrestled in the WWE, please move along.
I mean the Iron Sheik goes into all sorts of crazy racist rants every single day, but nobody cares about him so the WWE doesn't pull all their references to him.

I'm tired of this shit. When is Stephen A. Smith gonna get run outta town? Can black people be racist?
His reaction after he says it is the best like OH SHIT I DID NOT JUST SAY THAT IN A LIVE INTERVIEW

He was practicing a monologue for a WWE interview.
I see nothing wrong with this comment.Originally Posted by Hulkamania
did his bitch leak a recording or something?
The National Enquirer reported Hogan went on a racially insensitive tirade to then-lover Heather Clem regarding his daughter Brooke (WARNING: Comments contain NSFW language many my find offensive):
"She is making some real bad decisions now," Hulk said, sources tell us. "My daughter Brooke jumped sides on me. I spent $2-3 million on her music career, I’ve done everything like a jack*** for her.”
The bitter bodybuilder continued, "The one option Brooke had, Brooke’s career besides me, is [to] sell beach records."
At that point on the tape, the former "Hogan Knows Best” star bemoaned how a "black billionaire guy" had offered to fund her music career.
Hogan continued his tirade, per Howard and Cartwright:
"I mean, I don’t have double standards. I mean, I am a racist, to a point, f*cking n*ggers. But then when it comes to nice people and sh*t, and whatever."
"I guess we’re all a little racist. Fucking n*gger."
I don't know why the WWE cares. It's not like there are a lot of black people that watch wrestling anyway.
They're quick to distance themselves from any of their wrestlers/former wrestlers who do bad shit, although this does seem like a bit of an overreaction to him saying monica a few times in a rant about his daughter.
This is the best news for Gawker.
yeah seems like pretty mild stuff and he said it 8 years ago. I give Hulk a pass and deem him just a normal white guy

As far as I am concerned, the Hogan sex tape came from the wrong family member.
Yeah, I want to see what Nick is packin' too.
He mangled someone while drunk in a sports car or something stupid and then cried about how unfair it was while in prison and the tape made it to the judge.
He's a retard.
EDIT: Just Google'd it, apparently he was over 0.02 alcohol while under-age, so I guess drinking was at least a factor.
Brooke is not attractive, if that's what someone meant. Unless they meant the mom.. well, she's not either.
Brooke's music career was hilarious to watch basically flop around.
I have to see her butthole before I can rule out how attractive she is.
Just a nice dad helping his daughter get full coverage on a tan. Nothing weird about it all. It's not totally creepy or anything. I'm not turned on in the least.
Yeah of all the weird and fucked up shit with this family that sunscreen pic is hardly a big deal. Also this whole thing is pretty dumb.
It's funny because throughout the years Vince has had no problems using racist stereotype's to promote wrestlers.

He's just misunderstood bros, and his daughter wrote a poem to prove it!
~If You Knew My Father~
By Brooke Bollea
If you knew the dad I knew,
you’d know his tender heart.
He’d never want to hurt his fans,
or family from the start.
If you knew my father,
you would know how hard he fought…
and the way it brought a smile to people light, medium and dark.
We always fight a battle
that people never see,
and sometimes when you’re hurting, you don’t think logically.
Human isn’t perfect,
and perfect is not he,
but I can tell you one thing, it’s just not what it seems.
Cause If you knew the dad I knew,
you’d know he raised me well.
He taught me folks are so much more
than shades could ever tell.
And If you knew my father,
you would know he’s down to earth.
He may have slammed the giant,
but remembers life’s true worth.
If you knew my father,
if you just walked in his shoes…
then you would know that microscope that comes with yellow boots.
If you knew my father,
you would see your own in mine.
And if he was your father, you could never find divide.
Cause me- I bet your father
or someone that you love
Maybe regrets something
they wish they’d never done.
So if you know my father,
remember he’s a man,
and you would crave relief if people judged everything you did.
The lord says to forgive them,
don’t be the one to stone…
so please remember his strong arms when you were all alone.
The lives he’s changed, the friends he’s made,
the people he’s inspired…
It makes me sad to see my dad
defeated and so tired.
If you knew my father,
you would know just how he’s hurting…
For he loves every one of you, regardless of your story.
And if you met my father,
I know he’d give you love!
He’d lift you up, apologize and give you all a hug.
For those who think you know my father,
remember who you are.
We all can make mistakes and carry ugly scars.
Because I know my father,
I can promise this-
Just like you and I, things we don’t mean can sometimes slip.
We all continue learning.
This life can be so rough…
So if you know my father, please try not to be tough.
My father has a daughter,
and I have feelings too.
And if I knew your father, I would do the same for you.
From The Iron Sheik's Twitter:
WHO WANT TO SEE THE LEGEND REPLACE THE HIWDY DOODY HULK HOGAN IN THE @WWEToughEnough GIVE ME HELL YEAH
Nothing! I'm a Macho man fan!
I find it interesting that such a deal over what was said on national TV in the past as entertainment and people make millions by saying the same thing in music every day of the week.
Can't the WWE just out the hulk in the rickshaw for a day?
no they have to purge him because he said something in private once and he has no ownership public interest like sterling had.
Supposedly there's a lot more than just the one time when he was ranting about Brooke and the WWE got wind of it, which is why they jumped so quick into the Benoit treatment.
really? I haven't heard about more, got anything on that?
Piper getting his troll on.
Roddy Piper Makes Unusual Remarks Regarding Hulk Hogan On Talk Show - WrestlingInc.com
As it turns out, Piper spoke very little of Hogan, or anything specific really. Instead he brought attention to himself, and talked about how he'd ordered at Mexican restaurants that had sandwiches called "gringo burgers." He also made sure to mention that he once placed 5th in the world in bagpipe playing.
"When I would go into Madison Square Garden, I wasn't the most popular guy. Madison Square Garden there's 16,000 Puerto Ricans with knives and great radios and stuff. They pick it up from L.A. That's how they knew that I was there," Piper tried to explain.
Piper mentioned that he would wear a kilt at MSG, he'd have homophobic slurs at him. Eisen steered the conversation back towards Hogan, where Piper finally commented...sort of.
I heard a portion of that on my way home last night, was pretty funny.
Hulk Hogan copied Dog the Bounty hunter years too late!!111one
hulk hogan has been terminated from WWE 2k16
this is supposed to be a racist rant? He uses the n word, but he isn't being a racist. There's a big difference between the two.
You have to be naive or stupid to think this isn't related to his lawsuit against gawker.
The timing is waaaay too convenient. Be careful when you sue "reporters" they dont fight fair.
hogan is no racist, he was just being a dad. if he had just said "if my daughter is gonna fuck a dude he should at least be succesful and not act like an asshole" nobody would say shit. the n word is some kind of magic word that is fucking awesome to say if you are black, but a capital crime if you say it while being white. its fucking stupid to get so bent out of shape over a word, especially a word blacks say a million times a day. and roddy piper is nobody to comment because he is a massive racist, the shit he would say on Piper's Pit back in the 80s was insane. the WWE is no better. the hulkster is the biggest wrestling star of all time. its like banning any mention of babe ruth in baseball museums or anywhere because of some of the things he was purported as saying.
the worst part was this was all taken from a private conversation.
one thing I always had admired during my years as a WWE fan is how unapologetically politically incorrect they were. this is the company that gave us "Cryme Tyme" and the "Mexicools" (see below). this is the company that staged a gay wedding, which then (of course) devolved into a brawl setting up a wrestling match. they've had incest storylines, girl banging her friend's dad to blackmail her into lesbian sex storylines, necrophilia storylines, etc. it seems that WWE has finally been beaten down by the left and their stick of political correctness. i'm not saying they should have looked the other way here, but to whitewash the Hulkster from the history books because he threw the word nigger around is a huge overreaction. the WWE wouldn't exist if it wasn't for Hogan.
Hulk Hogan isn't a racist. he's just a guy who was pissed off over the possibility of someone taking advantage of his daughter and got emotional about it in a private fucking conversation. this whole thing is fucking ridiculous. show me one action of his that suggests any racism on his behalf. if this is the future of the world, then we're in big trouble.
You really can't talk about american wrestling history and ignore Hogan.
They went to far and now they have to find away to back down gracefully.
Hogan was the center of the transformation of wrestling from a back water entertainment that showed up on UHF channels after the cartoon shows ended on weekend to the massive pay per view era events it also replaced Saturday Night Live several times a year when Saturday Night Live was at its peak..

Maybe this is all a part of the act.
The problem is, they've got lots of tape on him. Apparently, after he gets laid, he rants about minorities and gays in the afterglow.
Hulk Hogan Makes Gay Slurs In Leaked Sex Tape -Details | eWrestlingNews.com
" “VH1 wanted me to do a big thing and go back to the house I grew up in. So we knock on the door and a big f*g lives there now!” He continues, “This half-gay was enamored with Linda,” speaking about his now ex-wife, Linda Hogan."
I can see where having a fag enamoured with your wife would make a fella nervous. It might bring up uncomfortable questions.
I have news for you. Just because you guys shit up these boards with your racism, doesn't mean that shit flies in real life.
Don't believe me? Make these comments at work, in the presence of a large amount of coworkers, and see if you stay employed until the end of the day.

Yeah stop being racist guys because feels!
Don't forget to look both ways before making a racist joke.
Also, there are just too many goddamn cameras in this world now.
wtf? you cant do dirty shit anymore? cant smack somebody upside their head with a folding chair or rip the cushion off the turnbuckle posts and slam the opponent into it anymore?
If the WWE doesn't fix this problem then they have given away the biggest name in professional wrestling history to a potential new rival, A rival not constrained by PG rating and SJW rules,

Ill just add that unless this is the biggest professional wrestling troll set up of all time that the real motive here isn't fear of advertisers it would instead be fear of bankers cutting credit lines. You have a highly indebted entertainment companies in decline because of the rise of internet stealing customers. Every facebook post, tweet, rerolled post, youtube video watched, LoL game being watched on twitch, LoL game being played is another customer lost to the old pre internet media entertainment industry. The result is for the vast majority of these companies is they are slowly bleeding to death as amount of internet content increases. Costs on the other hand have likely increased. That leads to these companies to living off there corporate credit lines while they try and find a fix. Unfortunately there is no real fix for this problem other then downsizing costs to match a your ever decreasing audience. Most of these companies would rather go bankrupt then admit that though.

It was such a disaster that TNA is now off national Television.
People dont pay to see Hogan anymore. Hes a nice name they can make a few merch sales and DVD bucks off, and fill some TV with, but hes not a monetary draw.
The minute he becomes a liability he was fired, just like anyone in the company.
As for mature wrestling fans, there is no money there. This is a repeat of the goofy early 90s WWF with Clowns, Garbage men, hockey players etc. Older fans of "wrestling" got sick of it, and flocked to ECW. They were the mature content for adults, and couldnt turn a profit. The WWE and WCW stole their ideas, ran them out of business and now we are back to PG era. most hardcore fans looking for more adult wrestling just watch Japanese shit.

To a degree this is really a no win position.
What the fuck are you going on about?
Edit: My god why am I derailing a thread to argue about Wrestlings financial viability.

The Attitude Era is over, and ratings are down, but it's mainly because the WWE is lacking stars. When the Rock and Stone Cold wrestled, ratings were double for both shows. People I knew that weren't wrestling fans tuned in just to see The Rock or Stone Cold. When they left, those people stopped watching. Don't believe me? When Daniel Bryan wrestled, ratings increased 30% (and decreased that much when he wasn't on). It got so bad with his ratings spike that he was on every 20 minutes in a three hour show. As Dave Bautista (Drax from Guardians of the Galaxy) said it, he loved DB, but you can't have a three hour show based around him. That just shows that no one else gives a shit about the other wrestlers, and that personalities drive the ratings. DB versus the Authority was like Stone Cold vs. Vince McMahon all over again, but with a smaller guy. It became a David vs. Goliath thing, and people at that shit up. CM Punk had a similar, albeit smaller increase/decrease on the ratings.
Now that Hogan is no longer than man, it was clear from last night's show that they are going forward with Cena as their figurehead. I've like watching him at midcard status for the last year, but he's being pushed back up to the main event.
The issue isn't the internet, IMO, it's all of the superhero media being released. Back in our day, they billed Hogan as a real life super hero. Kids have superheroes all over the place now (cartoons, videogames and movies). Wrestlers seem plain jane now. Of course, this last paragraph is strictly conjecture.

I looked at WWE business model and ill admit I was wrong to say they were in trouble financially. They seem to be well ahead of curve compared to others in dealing with the content explosion. They are shifting to a subscription model that provides higher value for money then there existing pay per view model. While still keeping that pay per view option. They bundle all the pay per view, old content and secondary non pay per view content into a package that is only marginally more expensive then paying for one single pay per view event over the course of six months.
As far as the economics of it, the real issue was broken down by Dana White from the UFC. He thought the WWE was crazy for giving the whole store away for $9.99 a month. But even he said it, one million subs is not good (because of cannibilization of its existing PPV business), but at two million, they make a killing. The economics of it have also gotten better, because WWE starting running commercials. At first, 100% of revenues came from subs. I sub to it not for the current stuff, but for the Hulkamania and Attitude Eras of wrestling. I can take my kids through all of the old stuff, they cheese at Hogan just like we did. The look on my kids' faces when they saw Hogan come out as Hollywood Hogan was priceless. Anyway, it really was better back in the day.
I just realized, they can't erase all of that time with Hogan. They are Benoiting Hogan. Maybe time will pass and some people will forgive Hogan. But his legacy is tarnished badly now.
