UPGRADE 9:58 A.M. WWE verified that it has terminated Hulk Hogan’s contract.
WWE has scrubbed most references of professional wrestling great Hulk Hogan from its Web site, for reasons that are not yet clear.
Multiple sources are reporting that WWE has removed any and all mentions of Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan from not only their official site, but Hogan can also be no longer recorded as among the judges on the Rough Enough television show according to WWEToughEnough.com.
The only thing currently remaining that mentions Hogan involves WWE’s upcoming Australian tour, which Hogan was scheduled to take part in as General Manager.
The Daily Beast reports that the WWE took preemptive action against Hogan after audio surfaced of a 2012 interview on SiriusXM radio w he discusses his use of the n-word while talking with black wrestlers as well as other black celebrities.
CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill said early Friday that WWE indeed took action as a result of a separate audio recording that goes above and beyond what Hogan said in the 2012 interview.
