Hulk Hogan Fired from WWE

Listen brother...  you may have heard that express from a wrestler with a raspy voice.  This wrestler is probably the most famous and legendary wrestler in American history. He was born Terry Bollea, but we know him by his gimmick name, "Hulk Hogan."

Hulk was very popular in the 80s and 90s. He fought many greats such as "Andre the Giant," "Randy 'Macho Man' Savage," "Brutus the Barber Beefcake," "The Ultimate Warrior," and "The Undertaker. His charisma, and moralist attitude advising the youth to 'take their vitamins and say their prayers' won him a huge fan base which came to be called "Hulkamaniacs."  Well unfortunately, all that is over.  "Hulk Hogan" was taped using some racist language.  Because of this, WWE has terminated his contract and literally purged him from their websites, Hall of Fame and so forth.  Like chef Paula Deen and actor Bill Cosby, Bollea now joins them in a big fall from grace.   I will update this when I learn more.


Here is some reaction on Twitter:
