Hulk Hogan Scandal and Everything You Need To Know

Published

on

Twitter has blown up, all regarding recent controversies surrounding WWE legend or shall we say former WWE legend Hulk Hogan. Radar Online released this morning transcripts from a racist conversation between Hulk Hogan and Bubba the Love Sponge’s former wife Heather Clem’s about Hulks daughter dating a black man.

These names may sound familiar to you as just over a year ago a sex tape was released on gawker featuring Hulk Hogan banging his best friends wife. Since then Hulk Hogan has sued Gawker in a lawsuit that if he won would surely put gawker out of business. Hulk Hogan has responded to TMZ.com about this recent released Racist Conversation between him and his fling.

“Eight years ago I used offensive language during a conversation. It was unacceptable for me to have used that offensive language; there is no excuse for it; and I apologize for having done it.”

The language that is being referred to here is beyond racist in my opinion and it comes to no surprise that not only has WWE released/fired Hulk Hogan from his WWE contract but the WWE has also removed all mention of Hulk Hogan from all of their websites. On top of this the WWE has removed all merchandise regarding Hulk Hogan, fired Hogan from his Tough Enough TV gig on the USA Network and have informed all of their license merchandisers that all future and current Hulk Hogan products must be pulled immediately.

The langue in question is the following from a tape recorded featuring Hulk Hogan and Heather having a very racist conversation.

“I mean, I don’t have double standards. I mean, I am a racist, to a point, f**king n**gers.” Hulk continues, “I mean I’d rather if she was going to f**k some n**ger, I’d rather have her marry an 8-foot tall n**ger worth a hundred million dollars! Like a basketball player.”

It looks like things have just gotten worse for the Hulkster, after a nasty divorce that left him with half his money, Hulk Hogan’s restaurant….that he personally owns…. has decided to pull away from the Hulk Hogan name due to the recent controversy.

Hulk Hogan continues his apology on TMZ … “I am disappointed with myself that I used language that is offensive and inconsistent with my own beliefs. It is not who I am. I continue to work every day to improve as a person, and this matter is an important learning experience for me in that regard.”

Several former and current WWE wrestlers have responded to the Hulk Hogan Racist Controversy on twitter this morning, below are some of their tweets including ones from Daniel Bryan and Booker T.

Rampage Trailer #2 Has The Rock in a Tag Team Match with a Monster Ape

Rampage Trailer #2 Has The Rock in a Tag Team Match with a Monster Ape

Warner Bros. has released a second full trailer for Rampage, which includes some exciting new footage. Fans get a glimpse at Malin Akerman’s character, the villainous Claire Wyden, the creator of “Project Rampage,” plus another look at the flying wolf Ralph, which is quite the change from the original video game. The end of this trailer may be the most intriguing, though, since it features Dwayne Johnson’s character Davis Okoye teaming up with his old friend George the Ape to defeat the other Project Rampage monsters.

Primatologist Davis Okoye (Dwayne Johnson), a man who keeps people at a distance, shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent, silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry mutates this gentle ape into a raging creature of enormous size. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered animals. As these newly created alpha predators tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.

It’s been clear through the earlier footage that Davis and George the Ape have a strong connection, and by the end of this movie, Davis has found a way to connect with George again, as they team up to save the world and destroy the other two Project Rampage creations. Rampage also stars Oscar nominee Naomie Harris (Moonlight), Malin Akerman (TV’s Billions), Jake Lacy (TV’s Girls), Joe Manganiello (TV’s True Blood) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (TV’s The Walking Dead); as well as P.J. Byrne (The Wolf of Wall Street), Marley Shelton (Solace), Breanne Hill (San Andreas), Jack Quaid (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), and Matt Gerald (TV’s Daredevil).

Peyton directs from a screenplay by Ryan Engle and Carlton Cuse & Ryan J. Condal and Adam Sztykiel, story by Ryan Engle, based on the video game Rampage. Rampage is produced by Beau Flynn, John Rickard, Hiram Garcia and Brad Peyton. It marks the third collaboration between Johnson, Peyton and Flynn, following the blockbuster hit San Andreas and Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. Serving as executive producers are Marcus Viscidi, Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, and Jeff Fierson, with Wendy Jacobson co-producing.

The creative team includes production designer Barry Chusid (San Andreas), director of photography Jaron Presant (2nd unit, Star Wars: The Last Jedi), editor Jim May (Goosebumps) and costume designer Melissa Bruning (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes). Music will be composed by Andrew Lockington, who created the scores for San Andreas and Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. The Rampage creatures are brought to life by acclaimed VFX supervisor Colin Strause (San Andreas, X-Men: Apocalypse), with five-time Academy Award-winning visual effects company Weta Digital (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes).

Production wrapped last July on Rampage, which opens in theaters beginning April 20, 2018, where it will go up against Fox Searchlight’s comedy Super Troopers 2 and Focus Features’ Tully. A New Line Cinema presentation, a Wrigley Pictures/Flynn Picture Company/7 Bucks Entertainment production, in association with ASAP Entertainment, Rampage will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company. Take a look at the new trailer below, courtesy of Warner Bros. YouTube.

The Rock Gets $20M Payday as Red Notice Lands at Universal

The Rock Gets $20M Payday as Red Notice Lands at Universal

Dwayne Johnson’s latest movie is going to earn him a $20 million payday. Following a massive bidding war between virtually every major studio in Hollywood (including Netflix), Universal and Legendary Pictures have won the rights to Red Notice, a new heist thriller that will see The Rock reteam with his Skyscraper director Rawson Thurber. Thurber is said to be getting an eight-figure payday for his work on Red Notice, which he will write and direct. This movie is on the fast track and is expected to be a major blockbuster with global appeal. Hence, the bidding war.

According to a new report, Red Notice will be a “two-hander,” meaning that it will be a starring vehicle for Dwayne Johnson and another yet-to-be-named star. Odds are, it’s going to be a big name, given that this is being pitched as a major blockbuster that is on the fast track. Red Notice is said to be the biggest deal made by a Hollywood studio for a movie this year so far. Red Notice comes from the mind of Rawson Thurber and he’s said to be getting to work on the script on Monday. Though, plot details are largely being kept under wraps at the moment.

The majority of the production team behind the upcoming Skyscraper, which was unveiled to the world during the Super Bowl, is in place for Red Notice. The movie will be produced by Beau Flynn, via FlynnPictureCo., along with Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia through their Seven Bucks Production banner. Rawson Thurber and Wendy Jacobson are executive producing. It’s said that Johnson was willing to shuffle around his schedule to ensure that he’ll be available to shoot Red Notice in early 2019.

Rawson Thurber and the producers generated a lot of buzz for this movie in a hurry when they started shopping it around. They reportedly had a lot more than just a pitch. Red Notice came with a full production team, the biggest star in the world already attached, a writer/director and even a start date for production. Not only that, but the movie is on track to be completed so that Universal can release it as an event movie in 2020. That makes for a rather quick turnaround for a movie of this size, but this isn’t a typical situation.

Whether or not a franchise is being hoped for remains unclear, but the movie certainly carries a franchise price tag. Not only is Dwayne Johnson earning a staggering amount of money, but it’s said that Red Notice will cost around $125 million to make. That’s not including marketing costs. Still, this seems like one of very few movies that has near guaranteed hit potential and that’s very hard to come by in Hollywood these days. Johnson also has his Fast and Furious spin-off with Jason Statham dated for 2019 and a sequel to Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle in the works. So his workload isn’t getting any lighter. This news was first reported by Deadline.
