In a new statement to the media, WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan’s lawyer says he resigned from WWE, they didn’t fire him as the company stated earlier. As previously reported, Hogan is no longer contractually engaged in any way with anything WWE related.
Initial reports claim WWE was informed of the contents of a tape containing Hogan using racial slurs on July 23, and promptly terminated the wrestling legend. The language used in the tape, which was revealed by The National Enquirer on July 24, is very racist and not something WWE wants to be associated with.
“I guess we’re all a little racist,” he crowed on the tape, multiple sources have confirmed exclusively to The ENQUIRER.
Despite his TV image as a born-again Christian, the tapes prove that Hulk is a very different man off camera!
In a startling exchange, the 61-year-old told Clem – who he sued for invasion of privacy after their XXX tape was leaked to a website – about his frustrations with blonde bombshell Brooke, 27.
“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 jackass 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.
He also attempts to use bizarre, twisted logic in an attempt to justify his bigotry at the man.
“I don’t know if Brooke was f*cking the black guy’s son,” Hulk raved, the sources add.
“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.”
Then, in a tirade to rival the racism embarrassments suffered by Mel Gibson and “Dog The Bounty Hunter,” Hulk unloaded even more hatred!
According to sources, he said: “I mean, I’d rather if she was going to f*ck some n*gger, I’d rather have her marry an 8-foot-tall n*gger worth a hundred million dollars! Like a basketball player!
“I guess we’re all a little racist. F*cking n*gger.”
WWE released the following statement in regards to these comments and their termination of Hogan’s contract, saying,
“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.”
Hogan’s lawyer claims otherwise. His statement below says that Hogan left WWE so they wouldn’t have to be dragged into the drama surrounding the Hall of Famer. The lawyer says,
“He decided to resign from WWE because he didn’t want to put them or his family through this.”
Hogan has publicly apologized for the comments he made on the tape eight years ago, but the response to this controversy has seemingly turned not only the wrestling world, but the entire entertainment and news worlds upside down. There are two sides to every story, and as more details emerge, WrestlingRumors.net will keep updating this story.
