The Shocking Transcript Of Hulk Hogan’s Racist Rant Leaked


UPDATE 9: As of writing this, TNA has not yet pulled Hulk Hogan off of its alumni page. His merchandise is also still available on ShopTNA.

UPDATE x 8: Hulk Hogan’s attorney told TMZ that Hogan was NOT fired but resigned from WWE late last night. WWE sources dispute that claim.

UPDATE x 7: has released a report on the developing Hulk Hogan scandal. The alleged racist statements by Hulk Hogan were reportedly made in his unauthorized sex tape with Heather Clem, the ex-wife of Hogan’s former friend Bubba “The Love Sponge.”

The reported vulgar and racist statements were apparently directed at his daughter Brooke, who he accused of sleeping with a black man. Hogan is quoted as saying the following:

”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 fuc*ing the black guy’s son. I mean, I don’t have double standards. I mean, I am a racist, to a point, fuc*ing ni**ers. But then when it comes to nice people and s*it, and whatever.” They claim he later said, “I mean, I’d rather if she was going to f*ck some n*gger, I’d rather have her marry an 8-foot-tall n*gger worth a hundred million dollars! Like a basketball player! I guess we’re all a little racist. F*cking n*gger.”

The transcripts of the tape were filed in a Florida Court and sealed in order to prevent them from ever being released publicly. However, the contents of the tape still came out from “five independent sources.” RadarOnline is also promising “more” from the tapes to come later on.

UPDATE x 6: CM Punk seemed to be getting a lot of enjoyment out of the Hulk Hogan racist comments scandal that erupted early this morning. He tweeted the following:

Booker T tweeted the following about the story:

Jim Ross tweeted the following:

Mike “Virgil” Jones also tweeted the following before deleting it: “Don’t be takin @HulkHogan words out of text. That man has done more for me than almost anybody man.”

UPDATE x 5: Ric Flair’s name has come up as a potential replacement for Hulk Hogan as a judge on Tough Enough. While Flair’s name has been discussed, no final decision has been made. The replacement will ultimately be decided by Vince McMahon and Kevin Dunn. WWE Tough Enough has been such a high priority for WWE that Vince McMahon has skipped the WWE SmackDown tapings on Tuesday nights to oversee the show’s production at Full Sail University every week.

Flair is also the top prospect to replace Hulk Hogan on WWE’s tour of Australia.

For what it’s worth, Mick Foley has been campaigning to be a judge on Tough Enough but one source was adamant in saying “that’s simply not going to happen.”

UPDATE x 4: WWE Hall of Famer and TV broadcaster Booker T has commented on the controversy surrounding Hulk Hogan’s racist rant. You can read his comments on Twitter below. Booker T also calls back to his infamous promo from WCW Spring Stampede 1997 where he used the “n-word” when referring to Hulk Hogan in a wrestling promo.

UPDATE x 3: WWE has now confirmed to us that it has in fact severed ties with Hulk Hogan and provided us with an official statement on the matter. WWE has terminated its contract with Hogan, and the rest of the statement suggests there is legitimacy to the claims of Hogan making some overtly racist statement. You can read WWE’s full statement on the issue below:

“WWE terminated its contract with Terry Bollea (aka Hulk Hogan). WWE is committed to embracing and celebrating individuals from all backgrounds as demonstrated by the diversity of our employees, performers and fans worldwide.”

This same statement is now posted on the website.

UPDATE x 2: The following is from

Hulk Hogan has mysteriously gone MIA from the WWE’s website at the exact same time reports started swirling about new audio of him throwing around the n-word is about to be released.

Hulk’s image and name have been completely scrubbed from the WWE’s main site … as well as its Hall of Fame site — but the n-word part of this story is complicated. Fact is … Hogan’s been recorded several times using the word … and it’s unclear which, if any, prompted the WWE to take action.

During a 2012 satellite radio interview … he dropped the n-word repeatedly while discussing run-ins he’d had with Birdman, Lil Wayne and fellow wrestler Booker T. But that audio was widely publicized when it first came out … so, seems unlikely that’s it.

More likely … it’s tied to Hogan’s current lawsuit over his sex tape. Audio of him using the n-word while discussing someone working with his daughter is reportedly going to be entered as evidence when the trial begins.

We’ve reached out to the WWE and Hulk … no word back from either yet.

UPDATE: More details are starting to come in regarding this story with Hulk Hogan allegedly making racist statements. The National Enquirer claims to have the tapes of Hulk Hogan making repeated racist statements. Those tapes were shared with WWE, which led to the company distancing itself from Hogan and removing references of him from the official website. The offending tapes will reportedly be released later today.

In addition, The Huffington Post has reported on some more rumored details on Hogan’s rant, which suggest that the statements that have gotten Hogan in trouble may have something to do with The Rock. Sources claim to have seen the transcripts of the audio tapes, where he refers to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in racist terms. Currently, The Rock is one of Hollywood’s top stars, and he is still on very good terms with WWE.

Journalist Marc Lamont Hill has claimed to have seen the transcripts of the audio of Hogan’s rant and posted the following on Twitter:

After this story broke, a video of an interview with Hulk Hogan using the “n-word” has been re-circulated online. The interview aired on Eminem’s Sirius XM hip-hop channel Shade 45. You can check out a video of the interview below. Keep in mind, the interview is from 2012, and appears to not be the one that has gotten Hogan in trouble for this latest incident.

ORIGINAL: Hulk Hogan is gone from WWE as noted earlier here on the website. Late Thursday night, the company removed all references to Hogan from This includes, in a rare stroke, his profile in the WWE Hall of Fame section of the page. He is also no longer listed among the judges for Tough Enough, nor is his merchandise available in

A source has indicated that Curtis Axel’s “Axelmania” gimmick has also been dropped immediately, and that’s staff was told to remove every reference to Hogan as quickly as possible. As recently as the end of SmackDown, there were still references to Hogan on the main page.

In possibly-related news, Hogan posted the following, rather vague affirmation to his Twitter account late last night:

There is a lot of unconfirmed speculation going around as to the reason. As soon as we know more, we’ll bring you up to speed.
