On an episode of his podcast, former wrestling legend Kevin Sullivan spoke out against rumors involving Hulk Hogan's possible return to the WWE. The way it was boiled down was that because of Linda McMahon's involvement with Donald Trump and the Republican Party and because of Trump garnering a larger portion of the black vote than was expected, he doesn't think Vince McMahon would chance that. Sullivan also noted that the racist outburst wasn't the first time Hogan used the N-word and noted that he used to use that word to describe some of Kevin's friends back in the day.
“Here’s the thing, and I don’t give a sh*t what Hulk says, I know Hulk. I knew him when he was a guitar player at the Rocket Lounge in Tampa. I know this guy. This wasn’t a one time only [incident], using the n-word. He said it to me a couple of times about who I was hanging out with back in the day. If they do bring him back, I think somebody is going to bring it up and say that wasn’t the only time he used it, come on.”
“They’re a publicly traded company and Mrs. McMahon is now appointed by the president elect to the Small Business Administration. This is a chance for her to move up in the Republican party and certainly they don’t want to offend the black vote in this country because believe it or not, Trump got more than they thought [he would], the percentage of black voters.”
