WWE issued the following statement to BusinessInsider.com about the Hulk Hogan banner being removed from the rafters at Madison Square Garden in New York City:
The banner was part of our show and was never intended to stay at MSG.
We reported here at WrestlingNewsWorld.com the banner had already been removed after being hung on Hulk Hogan Appreciation Night at WWE's live event from the venue on Friday night.
I guess they forgot to smarten up their social media director, as the verified WWE Twitter account Tweeted this on Sunday:
In other words Hulkamaniacs, it was a work.
