WWE has had many great superstars over the course of forty years that they have been in the business of wrestling. You may have your favorites, you may have the stars that you dislike. But, when we take a look at the biggest draws and the biggest superstars of all time, we are going to mention Hulk Hogan in the top five, no doubt. He was the icon in the 80s and the early 90s as an over-the-top babyface that was a hero to every single kid that was watching the product back in the day.
The Hulkster has won every single big match that he was in as he always overcame everything that stood in his way. Then, he later tried to be a heel and had some runs with the WCW and TNA. In the end, he came back where he belongs, where he made his name – the WWE. Hulk was the host of Wrestlemania 30, one of the better Manias in the recent memory. But, his run back with the company didn’t really last long as he was fired because of the racial comments he made and later on those surfaced on the internet.
More than two years later, The Hulkster has spoken about the night that he found out that he is going to get fired.
“When I heard this was going to happen, I called them on a Thursday or a Friday. As I hung up the phone that night, they fired me in the morning. It really caught me off guard, I didn’t expect it because the WWE knows who I am. I’m not that person, that’s not who I am and that’s not what I do.”
In the end, he stated that WWE probably did what is the best for business as they did not want to lose their subscribers and sponsors.
