Speaking to Sports Illustrated, Hogan revealed that when he made Triple H aware that there were racial slurs on a tape released by TMZ, it took just half an hour for him to be told that he was leaving the company.
Apparently Vince McMahon didn’t speak to Hogan himself; he just told Triple H to inform the 62-year-old that he would have to resign - a task Triple H duly carried out.
"The only person I talked to was Triple H. I called him and told him there was some old news coming out from when TMZ first reported the tape and there were some racial slurs on it. Triple H said, ‘OK, thanks for calling. Let me talk to Vince.’
