WWE severs ties with Hulk Hogan over racial slurs
World Wrestling Entertainment Inc. has severed ties with Hulk Hogan. The company deleted most references to Hogan on its website and issued a statement Friday saying it had terminated its contract with one of the biggest stars in the history of professional wrestling.
The move came amid a joint report from RadarOnline.com and The National Enquirer that Hogan used racial slurs in a conversation caught on a sex tape he is fighting in court to keep private.
In a statement to People magazine, Hogan apologized for using “offensive language.”
