Hulk Hogan Removed From Everything WWE Related
In an unusual story, WWE has seemingly distanced themselves from everything related to Hulk Hogan and has parted ways with the Hall of Famer.
Everything mentioned Hulk Hogan has taken down from WWE.com as well as merchandise related to Hogan.
It also seems that Hogan’s days as a judge for Tough Enough are over too, as he is no longer listed as a judge for the on-going series.
It what is seemingly a response to the news, Hogan tweeted this out.
In the storm I release control,God and his Universe will sail me where he wants me to be,one love. HH

The reasons for WWE’s decision are still not clear, but rumours and reports began surfacing that either an audio or video tape has been leaked onto the internet with Hogan going on a racial tirade of some sort.
However, these rumours still can’t be confirmed as of right now nor can’t be confirmed as the reason for Hogan’s apparent departure from WWE.
However, it’ll be interesting to see how this story develops as it does effect a number of wrestlers on the current roster.
Curtis Axel, whose current gimmick is parodying Hogan as Axelmania, has had his profile picture at WWE.com changed back to his normal persona.
This will likely mean that the Axelmania gimmick will be dropped, which will also see the break up of the “Mega Powers” team of Curtis Axel and Damien Sandow (who currently parodies “Macho Man” Randy Savage).
Well-known wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer tweeted that the website were told to remove all references of him in this tweet below.
WWE web site told a few hours ago to remove all references to him. That’s all I know so far.

Again, this story only broke a few hours ago on a number of wrestling sites.
Hopefully, we’ll know more later on in the day and we may possibly get an official WWE statement addressing the situation.
