Hulk Hogan has gone from being the biggest wrestler in the history of the World, to a racist abuse spouting madman, to a multi-millionaire in the space of a year or two. It's been one hell of a ride for The Hulkster.
When Gawker released a portion of a video containing Hogan having sex with a friend's wife, it came along with more than just an unknowing Hogan being recorded. It had the added benefit of a series of highly racist comments made by Hulk.
Another WWE legend, Bret Hart, appeared on a podcast recently and gave his true opinion of Hogan, saying that despite Hulkster's claims that the quotes didn't show "the real him" - Hart knows that the racism-spouting man was Hogan's natural self.

Hart Reveals All
Hart appeared on The Jobbing Out Podcast with Aaron Oster, Glenn Clark, and AJ Francis this week and made the shocking comments.
"He's coming into a nice little bonus there for being a racist," The Hitman claimed.
Hart said that he was witness to a lot of white, American wrestlers being very open with their racism, freely spouting the n-word and prejudiced opinions behind the backs of black wrestlers.

'Hogan Is Racist'
"I think with Hogan, I think it's a case of him getting caught...they talk that kind of bulls--t, and they don't look in the mirror and go, 'You know, I am a racist' when they are racist," Hart added.
"He admitted to being a racist on the video. I think that for all the money in the world, to people all over the world he was hero. I'm sure he had a lot of black wrestling fans that idolized him and worshiped him."
According to Hart, he has seen Hogan be a racist and that it is the real him.
"When he goes on TV and says, 'That wasn't me. That's not the real me', I say bulls--t. That was the real you. That's the real you that I've seen...I'm glad he stepped into that mess because he tarnished his reputation and his image forever."
If it wasn't clear, Bret Hart really dislikes Hulk Hogan.
"I have lots of reasons why I don't like Hogan. He's always been a liar. I can't hardly think of a thing that he's said in his life that's been true or honest. He's a liar. He's a piece of s--t. He's a rich piece of s--t now."
Hart just beat cancer and The Hitman strikes again.
