Vince McMahon takes a shot at Hulk Hogan during conference call

During the earnings conference call earlier today, one of the callers asked Vince McMahon about Hulk Hogan, who last week was fired from WWE for racial rants which were shot on a sex tape video eight years ago but released just now by The National Enquirer.

The caller did not mention Hogan by name but went the diplomatic way saying that there was a lot of noise in the media about severing ties with this long-term legendary marketing talent.

“I mean there was a recent situation with Hulk Hogan who’s no longer with the organization and that doesn’t have any material effect,” McMahon said. “So again we were keen on individuals who can actually compete in the ring and derive benefit from that.”

While Hogan got the Chris Benoit treatment on the WWE.COM website, searching for his name on the WWE Network still returns all the results, unlike for Benoit, which returns just one result.
