Two weeks back on Raw, WWE was showing memorable moments from Sting’s career.
The footage of Sting defeating Hollywood Hulk Hogan at WCW Starrcade was also shown. This was an intentional reference to Hogan by the WWE as Vince feels that removing Hulk Hogan completely from WWE history is not possible as he’s the biggest name of this industry.
There has been some speculation that WWE is warming things up with Hulk Hogan as the heat regarding his controversy is slowing down and the matter is fading away with time. Hulk Hogan would be back in WWE someday, but that day isn’t anytime soon. One thing for sure is that Hogan won’t be a part of WrestleMania 32, thanks to this controversy he was involved in. There have been some rumors that Hulk Hogan’s merchandise might be back on WWE Shop.
During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Hogan revealed that Triple H was the one who informed him that he would have to resign from WWE. Hogan also noted that he didn’t talk to Vince McMahon at that time. Below is what Hogan said:
“Triple H was telling me the USA Network was reacting very badly, and they had to make a quick decision, and that was to put me out to pasture. They were under heavy fire and they were scrambling. The only person I talked to was Triple H. I called him and told him there was some old news coming out from when TMZ first reported the tape and there were some racial slurs on it. Triple H said, ‘Okay, thanks for calling. Let me talk to Vince.’ He called me back a half-hour later and he goes, ‘I’ve got some news and it isn’t good. Vince said that you need to resign.’ I never heard from Vince or talked to Vince. In the middle of the night, they just fired me.”
For those who missed it, Hulk Hogan is now the new spokesman for Fanpicks.com, which is a major gambling website. The website management is aware of the recent controversy Hogan was involved in and believe that the “Immortal” Hulk Hogan deserves a second chance. Below is what one of the spokesmen of the company said: “We all make mistakes and he deserves second chances.”
Below is what Hulk Hogan said regarding this:
“I am looking forward to connecting with all my Hulkamaniacs during some of the biggest games of the year and at upcoming Fan Pick live events in the near future.”
The website is offering a bonus to new member who want to sign up on the website. They can use the code “Hulk25”.
