Hulk Hogan gone from WWE

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports
UPDATED: WWE has confirmed the termination of Hulk Hogan's contract amidst reports of racist speech caught on tape.

At some point last night, WWE went about the process of disassociating itself with Hall of Famer and current Tough Enough judge Hulk Hogan. Word started making the rounds of as much and PW Torch took note that he's been removed from listings as a judge on Tough Enough, his profile has been scrubbed from the site, and he's no longer even listed in the Hall of Fame section.

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer had this to say about what's happening:

Hogan himself cryptically tweeted this last night before all of this started:

There's a rumor -- and it should be stressed that it's just a rumor for now -- that there will be audio released by a media outlet of Hogan making comments that are racist in nature.

More on this as it develops.

UPDATE: Hogan's merchandise has been removed from WWE Shop and the Observer is reporting that Curtis Axel has been told his AxelMania gimmick "will be dropped immediately."
