Brian Knobbs on Hogan: “There ain’t a racist bone in his body”
Brian Knobbs Talk’s Hogan’s Racism Scandal
“A lot of things were taken out of proportion,” Knobbs said of leaked audio of Hogan’s comments,” and things that shouldn’t have been taped and no one should ever say that word. It’s beyond disrespectful and hurtful and horrifying to even use that. A lot of people make mistakes and you’re given second chances for a reason.”
Knobbs recited all of the good things Hogan does for organizations such as Make-A-Wish and also stated that he has many African American friends in the industry.
“There ain’t a racist bone in his body and I can say the same thing. No way he’s racist at all,” said Knobbs.
“Thank God there weren’t cell phones when me and [Jerry] Sags were wrestling or we would have had a job with WWF for about a day or two. We would have been fired.”
After three years, Hulk Hogan was reinstated by WWE in July 2018 and has made several visits to WWE since then. Knobbs says it’s good that Hogan is back in the fold with WWE considering how much he’s done for the company.
“He deserved to be back a long time before that but today’s everybody politically correct,” stated Knobbs. “But he needs to be there because he was one of the guys who started everything back in the day – him and Vince, Piper is another one.”
