WWE terminates contract with Hulk Hogan 'over N-word audio'

FIRED: Former WWE and WCW Heavyweight Champion Hulk Hogan

WORLD WRESTLING Entertainment (WWE) has confirmed that it has ended its contract with world-famous wrestler Hulk Hogan after all mentions of the wrestler mysteriously vanished from its website.

The WWE would not comment as to the reason it booted Hogan, but according to multiple reports, the wrestler was kicked out for "racist" comments he made during a 2012 radio interview in which he says the N-word.

"WWE terminated its contract with Terry Bollea (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," told FOX411.

Hogan has been mostly erased from the company's website. When 'Hogan' is entered in the search option on the WWE website, he is no longer listed on the WWE Hall of Fame page and all of his merchandise has been removed from the WWE shop.

In the 2012 radio interview, Hogan's interviewer asked him: "You've been saying brother for years, any black guy ever say, 'Yo, you my n****r, you my n****r Hulk."

Hogan responded: "Well Booker T used to say that to me on TV and you know, every time I pull up YouTube there's that famous thing that Booker T...goes, 'I'm coming for you my n****r."

He added: "They're all calling me n****r and then I started saying it and you know, I always said it but now all of a sudden I get heat when I said it."
