- Hulk Hogan
If you ever want to talk about a fall from grace, one need simply take a look at the case of Hulk Hogan. Once a proud wrestling legend who sold out arenas around the world and is a name synonymous with professional wrestling, recent years have seen “The Hulkster” fall on some seriously hard times.
These hard times include the release of a sex tape of Hogan from the company Gawker, which led to lawsuits and broken friendships for the man with the 48” Pythons. Perhaps more infamous, and what led to his WWE departure, is the use of racial slurs against his daughter’s boyfriend, which was leaked in audio to the public. These events have caused the WWE to scrub themselves as much as possible of Hogan from their history.
While these times are certainly dire for the man, Hulk Hogan and WWE go hand-in-hand. No matter how much WWE tries to erase Hogan, I think that it is still plausible to find Hogan back in a WWE ring at some point in time.
