UPDATE: The National Enquirer just released an explosive report about how Hogan allegedly used the N-word multiple times in a 2012 sex tape. Go here for more details.

Late last night, the WWE reportedly distanced itself from one of the biggest stars in the history of the company when it wiped any mention of Hulk Hogan from its website. Hogan's Hall of Fame page and all of his Hulk-related merchandise appear to have been removed from the site:

WWE web site told a few hours ago to remove all references to him. That's all I know so far.

In addition to that, Hogan is no longer listed as a judge for the WWE Tough Enough reality show. The show is halfway through its sixth season.

Rumors about Hogan's removal, which are thus far unconfirmed by WWE, reportedly revolve around an audio tape of Hulk going on a "racial tirade":

In the storm I release control,God and his Universe will sail me where he wants me to be,one love. HH

— Hulk Hogan (@HulkHogan) July 24, 2015

WWE is yet to officially comment on the matter. But Hogan himself took to Twitter early this morning to send out this cryptic tweet:

Stay tuned for further updates.
