“Do you think Hulk Hogan will ever be back in WWE?”
“Let’s hope not.”

That’s Bret Hart during his time on TSN’s Periscope account, holding a Q&A session and interacting with fans. Hulk Hogan was a frequent topic of conversation, and Bret says he’s off in Tampa in a “world of idol worship of himself.” Here’s what The Hitman had to say about the racist rant that got Hogan fired from WWE, and whether or not he was witness to racism in pro wrestling locker rooms:

“I can say that, through my experience, that a vast majority, of course not all of them, but a vast majority of the white, Southern wrestlers tend to be a little bit racial all the time, and the n-word was frequently used by a lot of wrestlers in the dressing room when there was a black guy not around, kinda thing. And being a Canadian, I found that really difficult, I didn’t see eye-to-eye with that kind of stuff and never felt like that, and I’ve never been in that kind of mindset, but for Hulk Hogan to make the comments that he made that is something if you had a camera like that in most of the dressing rooms with a lot of the Southern wrestlers from Florida, Tennessee, Mississippi, even Texas, you get a lot of that kind of slant on things. And I’m kinda glad he got busted for that reason, that times have changed, and y’know, you have to answer for that stuff, and he’s answering for it. He’s probably glad that Roddy Piper passed away, because he took all the edge off all that.”
