No WWE Return For Hulk Hogan: Watch His Tearful Apology From US TV
The door remains closed on a WWE return for Hulk Hogan, despite the wrestling star’s tearful apology for his n-word shame.
Hogan - real name Terry Bollea - denied he is a racist during an appearance on ABC's Good Morning America, saying the “devastating” and ‘embarrassing’ incident was his "lowest point” - and that he'd considered taking his own life.
The 62-year-old’s association with the sports entertainment giant was immediately ended in July after unreleased footage from his sex tape was alleged to contain racial slurs in an investigation by US tabloids.
And the company continued to be firm on his future prospects yesterday, saying in a statement: “At this time, the WWE remains steadfast in its decision.”
Pleading with fans in his first TV appearance since the scandal broke, Hogan said: "Please forgive me.
"Please forgive me. I'm a nice guy.
"I think if you look at the whole picture of who Hulk Hogan is, you can see over all the years that there's not a racist bone in my body.
"It's not the Hulk Hogan that rips a shirt off and bang, bang, bang, slams giants, you know? I'm Terry Bollea. I'm a normal man."
