Hogan was no longer listed as a WWE alumni or hall of famer. Hulk Hogan merchandise was also gone and Hogan is also no longer listed as one of the judges on the WWE TV show Tough Enough. A general search of his name still yields highlights from his WWE career. On Friday, the WWE confirmed to For The Win that they had terminated the hall of famer’s contract.

From the WWE:

“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.”

There is rampant speculation surrounding this seeming parting of ways, but at this time, the WWE has not disclosed what triggered the sudden termination.
