Hogan Doesn’t Want To Reincarnate As Black
The fall of Hulk Hogan continues as even more racist comments have emerged, this time from a conversation he had with his son Nick in 2008, when he was behind bars following the John Graziano car wreck.
When trying to build Nick’s spirit, saying they were going to live forever, he quipped that he hopes they don’t reincarnate as black guys.
His precise words were said in carny wrestling language:
“I just hope we don’t come back as a couple, I don’t want to say it, blizz-ack gizz-uys, you know what I’m saying?”
Here’s the rest of the cringe-worthy exchange as leaked by Bay News 9 in Tampa:
Nick: “It’s down in St. Pete and it’s mixed-race and we get along with everybody, so that’s fine.”
Hulk: “Your mom went there and said it was mainly blizz, you know what I’m sizz-aying?”
Hulk: “And that some of the ladies there that, you know, run the school are nice blizz lizz-adies, you know?”
Nick: “Mm-hm…. I would go down there, I would make friends with all those kids down there. I guarantee it. Because you know how all the blizz pizz love us.”
Meanwhile Taz chimed in on the situation on his Podcast saying it was a black eye on the wrestling business:
I think it is a black eye on the wrestling business, just because Hulk Hogan was such a powerful, powerful force in the business and mainstream entertainment. People, everyone knows Hulk Hogan, so I think that hurts the business a little bit … I just think Hulk Hogan’s done, done … Sad way to go out – sad way to go down.
The Hulkster’s lawyers believe it was Gawker who leaked the racist comments as a way to sway public opinion in the ongoing sex tape lawsuit.
Layla Retiring From The Ring
WWE.com have revealed that Diva Layla is retiring from the ring after nearly 9 years with the company.
I feel like deciding to retire from the ring has been a hard decision to make because I’m passionate and I love performing. I’ve known everybody in that company now for nine years. They’re family. I spend more time with crew and Superstars and Divas on the roster than I did with anybody else. It becomes part of your life. And not only that, it’s hard walking away from the fans. Part of me feels a little bit guilty for walking away because [WWE fans] are 100 percent loyal and have supported me since 2006. I wouldn’t even have this job if the fans didn’t vote in the Diva Search. I was able to win that competition because of them and I was blessed. But sometimes you just need to step out and take a risk and move onto the next phase in life.
I’ve been traveling the world for nine years now and sometimes it’s just time to start the next chapter of your life. Traveling on the road was fun, but the older you get, it takes more time for recovery. I just got tired of the travel part.
