Hulk Hogan faced off against the biggest and best wrestling stars of his era during his time in the WWE ring, but the Hall of Famer is now facing his toughest test and it comes outside the squared circle.

A racism storm that began on Friday when racist comments attributed to Hogan emerged has led to WWE cutting all ties with him and the wider world calling for answers.

Hogan's hasty apology did little to appease his critics and now the wrestling veteran has taken to social media to send a message to his fans as the controversy continues.

With few people on his side considering the comments dating from 2007 - which included the use of the N-word and Hogan stating himself that "I am racist" - he clearly felt the need to thank the few who are backing him.
