After WWE announced it was cutting ties with WWE Legend Hulk Hogan over racially-charged comments made, 2K has confirmed he will also be removed from its upcoming wrestling title, WWE 2K16.

In a statement sent to Shacknews, 2K says, "We are highly respectful of the way that our partners choose to run their business and manage our partnerships accordingly. We can confirm that Hulk Hogan will not appear in WWE 2K16."

Today's news just comes a day after GameStop Italy leaked the inclusion of Hulk Hogan in WWE 2K16, along with WWE Legends superstars Triple H, The Rock, and Andre The Giant. While this list didn't come directly from 2K, it's interesting they not only confirm Hogan was in the game via there statement, but also that he will now be removed due to the controversy surrounding him.

Hulk Hogan has been included in many WWE titles throughout the years including WCW/nWo Revenge, WWF Royal Rumble, WWE Wrestlemania X8, WWE Legends of Wrestlemania, and more. While we understand 2K's position to remove him from the upcoming WWE 2K16, a wrestling game without Hulk Hogan would feel strange considering he's been in nearly every wrestling game ever created.

      Isn't it also notable that the game is due out relatively soon?

        He suggested all Ferengi were greedy dicks.

        Several years ago, he made a comment about black men wanting to date his daughter and he used the n-word. It appears this recording was released by a company Hogan is suing.

          But isn't he in the 'so old he doesn't know any better' category? Or has he opted out of that by pretending he isn't like 9000 years old?

            i don't think anyone short of 80 fits into that category. hell, my grandma grew up as a white south african, and has some... antiquated views, but still understands that certain words are entirely inappropriate.

      There must be a TLDR article somewhere on this, i read a bit on website about sex tapes, and secret taping, and got all confused. Did hulk tape his wife getting fucked by random people, or was it someone else. Was it a recording from there that has been leaked.

      And if something was leaked then why hasn't anyone uploaded the audio/video somewhere..

      Is there anything else but Hulk talking shit on that tape that hinted that he was racist?
