Hulk Hogan, pop culture icon and one of the most popular wrestlers of all-time, has been desperately trying to cover his own behind ever since the WWE fired him in July over the racist remarks he made in a leaked video tape.
Not only did they fire him, but they completely erased him from the WWE universe. He is gone from their website, his merchandise was taken off the shelves, and his character was yanked from the upcoming WWE 2K16 video game. The only evidence of his lengthy wrestling career now exists in the archives of the WWE Network.
More than a month after the initial bomb was dropped, Hogan sat down with Good Morning America for an emotional interview. As the interview goes on, Hogan becomes visibly upset and teary-eyed, even asking if they can take a break for a moment so he can collect himself.
At one point, Hogan mentions that in the aftermath of the scandal he felt like commiting suicide:
“I was at the lowest point of my life, to the point where I wanted to kill myself.
[You were suicidal?]
Yes, I was.”
