Hulk Hogan was erased from WWE history for a long time after a tape came out where Hogan could be hearing use racial slurs and saying that he is “racist to a point,” while talking about a man his daughter was dating.
While speaking to Booker T’s Hall Of Fame podcast, Hulk Hogan discussed those racist remarks he had made long ago. While he doesn’t remember what he said, he does admit that he had used racial slurs. He then talked about people who kept on bringing this up and they are the ones he is concerned about.
Well I mean that’s what a lot of people don’t understand. People can say a word or make a mistake and that doesn’t mean that’s who they are. Ya know? The people that keep bringing it up and keep pushing it forward…those are the people I worry about. For me…it was a brilliant delayed reaction. I mean..that’s kind of like…why I asked you. I had said…used the word…and it was now going on almost 13 years ago.
It was said in 2006, and I was made aware of it about five years ago. To tell you the truth I don’t remember that conversation, but that definitely was me, and I definitely said it, and I mean…total idiot. Totally out of control bad situation. There’s a million excuses for it, but it was me I said it. I’ve tried to be accountable for it.
After a lot of work and patience, Hulk Hogan finally made his way back to WWE. He is finally on good terms with WWE seeing as he helped open WrestleMania 35.
