The situation with Hulk Hogan continues to get even uglier. First, he was labeled a racist because he used derogatory terms against black people. Now, he is being labeled as anti gay, as he used a derogatory term against a person that is now living in the home that he grew up in. He was supposed to visit that house for segments of his old reality television show, Hogan Knows Best.

Due to the controversy that was created by Hulk Hogan this week, Curtis Axel and Damien Sandow are being forced to drop their impersonation gimmicks, which was a key selling point for the duo. During a live event over the weekend, the two of them still were a tag team but they were dressed in generic clothing.
