On Thursday July 23rd 2015, the man who was born Terry Gene Bollea and known to (pretty much literally) the entire world as Hulk Hogan, was released from WWE.
The news is shocking to say the least, and details are still a bit vague as to what precisely precipitated his termination. Thus far, several sources point toward a transcript from a video from eight years ago on which Bollea uses racially offensive comments, including specific and repeated use of the word “nigger”. The video in question is currently under wraps, as it is apparently tied into a court case, so the exact nature of the context cannot be known. As already stated, the details are still scarce. Sources indicate the video was sexual in nature.
