Kurt Angle wants to face Daniel Bryan for his last match. His TNA contract ends around January 2016 so there's a slim chance that could happen.

All references to him gone from the website, all his merch removed from the store.

No confirmation yet, but rumour is racist tirade.

God damn it, i stop checking wrestling news for a day and this happens? Holy hell.

Its from an interview like 3 years ago where he was talking about how a bunch of black wrestlers would call him n***r (Booker T and a couple others). So it just became part of the way they talked to each other and Hogan started using the word with them, and somehow thought it was okay for him to use the word. The interview was kind of about how he got heat for using it at the time and he was even apologetic about it all. Never used it as a derogatory term. Seems WAY blown out of proportion, but that's the world we live in.

Yeah, here's what The Enquirer reported:

In a joint story that they broke with RadarOnline.com, the Enquirer claims that Hogan made numerous racist remarks on the tape with Clem including:

About his daughter Brooke he is quoted as saying, ”She is making some real bad decisions now. My daughter Brooke jumped sides on me. I spent $2-3 million on her music career, I’ve done everything like a jackass for her. The one option Brooke had, Brooke’s career besides me, is [to] sell beach records."” They claim Hogan was mad because a "black billionaire guy" had offered to fund her music career. They then quoted Hogan as saying, “I don’t know if Brooke was f*****g the black guy’s son. I mean, I don’t have double standards. I mean, I am a racist, to a point, f*****g n*****s. But then when it comes to nice people and s***, and whatever."” They claim he later said, "I mean, I’d rather if she was going to f*** some n*****, I’d rather have her marry an 8-foot-tall n***** worth a hundred million dollars! Like a basketball player! I guess we’re all a little racist. F*****g n*****.”

Once that got to WWE, boom, gone. This is from the sex tape. They claim there's more damaging stuff on there too. Beyond the vileness of what he said, there's the stupidity of filming it, knowing he was being filmed and saying it. I almost said suing Gawker because that's where this is coming from the court documents, but honestly? Once the tape was out, even if he did nothing, he was fucked. He's admitted he said this stuff and apologized but....forget it, career over. Paula Dean was destroyed just by admitting she'd used the n-word in her life, here you've got a whole racist rant.

Damn, I was really hoping that Hogan would stick around for a while with his latest run. He seemed to finally accept his role as a traveling legend and goodwill ambassador.

Another question is if he'll start getting the Benoit treatment on the WWE Network. Will that area mention his name?

Hulk Hogan is the biggest name in Wrestling. I don't give a crap what name he called anybody. What the hell is wrong with people today?

While i don't care if he said the n word (Vince has said it, Booker T has said it, many others have said it) it's actually pretty funny seeing how mad you are over all of this.

Then again, this is just goes to show how thin skinned society is nowadays where they fire and erase a legend just for saying one word, Benoit i could kind of understand why they erased him, while he was an accomplished wrestler he wasn't as famous nor important as Hulk Hogan which makes the treatment he's receiving seem even worse.

I get sick and tired of seeing people's career being ruined by something stupid they said years earlier. If WWE wants to be dumb, let Hogan go back to TNA.

I just read about it. I'm still stunned. Guy was cancer-free as of last November and seemed healthy and poised to remain around for a long time. Sucks that he just went so suddenly and left behind so many loved ones. Goes to show that you never know when it'll be your time to die.

R.I.P. Piper. I'll never forget your match with Bret Hart at Wrestlemania VII or your amazing work in They Live.
