That has to be the oddest cast of characters ever put together for one of these. Tugboat, Outback Jack and Dynamite are totally out of the blue. He usually brings over the Nasties and Koko B Ware for stuff like this. I'm not going, but I can see the appeal of getting ignored by Dynamite Kid and looking at Outback Jack's glass eye.

 

What's odd is, Hogan's prices both in the States and over here dont reflect a man who has been caught being racist. Business is oddly booming for him at the minute, which is either very surprising or very typical depending your opinion on wrestling fans.

Ugh, a dedicated thread to An Evening With A Racist Shit. All these events are sanitised hagiographies for people who barely deserve it and attended by people who should know better. This one will be all that AND a celebration of a lying bigot. Woohoo!

 

I'm usually a little easier on this kind of thing but it's about time wrestling stopped giving second, third, fifth, eleventh chances to these pieces of shit. When wider society is expressing its racism through attitudes to "immigants", the last thing we need is actual, admitted & caught racists getting any kind of east ride.

Come on man, he's shed a tear, made an apology and even posted photos of himself with black folk on his Facebook page. It's time to move on.

It's not about his hero status or what he did for the industry. It's the fact that he has been outed as a massive racist and someone, whoever the promoter is, has jumped at the chance to try and make a quick buck for themselves knowing that Hogan is in full-on work mode (I.e. His only mode) to try and prove otherwise. Coupled with the fact that Hogan is a pathological liar, you can't believe a word that he utters

 

Paul McCartney is a hero to slot of people, but if he suddenly told Stevie Wonder to go back to bongo bongo land, his reputation would be in tatters no matter what he did for the music industry.

Chris Benoit was a hero to some people, but despite everything he did in his career it doesn't change the fact that he murdered his wife and a young child.

Why all the hating?

 

To many Hulk Hogan is a (childhood) hero. Without him most of us wouldnt be watching wrestling today. And for the younger fans, without him chances are that there wouldnt be a WrestleMania and you probably would never have heard of WWF/ WWE.

 

I'm glad somebody's finally got to the real issue at heart here. It's like when I hear Germans who are ashamed of Hitler just because he caused a war and gassed some jews. I'm like "Herr, you wouldn't have had strong economic recovery without Adolf, why the hate?"
