The fallout continues for Hulk Hogan (real name Terry Bollea) following the news that he was recorded making racist remarks several years ago.

Shortly after WWE announced that they were terminating their contract with the former professional wrestler, his future on Tough Enough is also in shambles.

In fact, a source tell E! News that the show will continue to air as usual on Tuesdays but there will be a replacement judge for Hogan.

No details have been finalized just yet regarding who will step in the Hulk's shoes.

Meanwhile, former colleague and professional wrestler Booker T. Huffmann took to Twitter to share his two cents over today's news.

"I am shocked by the statements made by Hulk Hogan. It's unfortunate, but that's something that he's going to have to deal with," he wrote.

"It's 2015 and the n-word should be eradicated from the English language in my opinion."

After posting a cryptic message on social media, Hogan issued the following apology:

"Eight years ago I used offensive language during a conversation," he explained. "It was unacceptable for me to have used that offensive language; there is no excuse for it; and I apologize for having done it. This not who I am. I believe very strongly that every person in the world is important and should not be treated differently based on race, gender, orientation, religious beliefs or otherwise. I am disappointed with myself that I used language that is offensive and inconsistent with my own beliefs."

People was the first to report Hogan's apology.

Hogan's attorney tells E! News that he was the first to contact the WWE last night and "advised them of his decision to resign."

"Mr. Bollea hopes there's room for forgiveness and as well as being politically correct. He sincerely apologizes," his lawyer continued.

As for who leaked the sealed Florida transcript of Hogan's racist remarks, his lawyer says they "will take the appropriate steps against who is responsible for reinvigorating this."
