WWE Studios will also see some fallout from the Hulk Hogan racist comments controversy. Hogan has an extended sequence early in the movie “Celebrity Death Pool” that stars Ken Jeong and David Hasselhoff. There have already been talks about what they can do to edit around or re-shoot the Hogan scenes in the movie. It’s not likely they can edit around Hogan but they would be able to re-shoot, which would cost them.
We noted before that WWE informed all licensees that current and future Hogan related projects were to be nixed. This includes WWE 2K16, action figures, t-shirts and more. Even the streaming of Hogan’s WWE theme songs was pulled.
