The news broke earlier this morning that Hulk Hogan had been fired/parted ways with the WWE over an apparent racial tirade.
Hogan has been completely removed from the WWE website, there is absolutely no trace of his existence on the site anywhere so you know it must be serious.
Undoubtedly, no one in the WWE will be allowed to speak about this publicly, but thankfully former stars can. Step forward Mr CM Punk.

Punk has had a bit of a rivalry in the past with Hogan, which got exacerbated during the Stanley Cup Finals when the Chicago Blackhawks - the team Punk is a massive celebrity puckhead for - went up against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Well, for some reason the Lightning got Hogan to be a representative for them and he had an absolute shocker, calling the team's coach the wrong name and not knowing who Steven Stamkos was.
This came to a big back and forth with the two slinging disses at each other like quarreling rappers, with Punk and the Blackhawks eventually coming out on top.
As you can imagine, after seeing the news of Hogan's firing and Chris Benoit-esk white washing from the WWE website and Tough Enough- where Hogan was a judge - Punk had himself a field day.
Referencing the firing on Twitter, Punk broke out the standard LOL while adding that he didn't want to sleep in case he missed any more details.
