Hulk Hogan may be gone from WWE due to a racially sensitive interview in 2012

The following link reports that Hogan has been deleted from WWE.com as well Hall of Fame section due to a use of the "N" word during an interview in 2012. I have checked WWE.com and there is no mention of Hogan where I searched. I have read the transcript of the interview and it reads as an explanation of story he was telling about associating with the "Rap" scene. If this was so bad, then why is it only being acted upon now? I personally do not use the word, but in the context of the story being told, I do not believe it was being used in a racially motivated way. The following story references a deposition given by Hogan in a an active lawsuit where there may be a more inflammatory use of the word as well. Who knows what will be exposed, if anything, at a future time.


It does go to show that you can be on top of the mountain and one misstep can send you tumbling.
