Another company that will see some fallout from the Hulk Hogan racism controversy is WWE Studios.
Hogan has an extended sequence early in the movie, “Celebrity Death Pool,” however there have already been talks about what they can do to edit around the scene or re-shoot the Hogan scenes in the movie.
It’s pretty unlikely that they will be able to edit around Hogan, but they would be able to re-shoot, which would cost them.
WWE has informed all licensees that current and future Hogan-related items are to be nixed. This includes WWE 2K16, WWE action figures and t-shirts, as well as other projects. WWE was so thorough in removing Hogan mentions that they even pulled the streaming of Hogan’s theme music.
