Hulk Hogan Racist Tapes, Removal from WWE- Reactions from SI, USA Today, Bleacher Report, Rolling Stone, People, TMZ

Hulk Hogan is the biggest story today and will likely be the biggest story in Pro Wrestling for quite some time. This story transcends wrestling and has taken over mainstream media. For example, when I checked which Hulk Hogan stories were the biggest on social media, all of them were from mainstream media or non-wrestling blogs.

As we posted earlier, WWE Fired Hulk Hogan for racist recordings that surfaced, allegedly of the Hulkster using the "N word" while discussing a black man his daughter was dating.
