Hulk Hogan Officially Removed From Upcoming WWE 2K16 Video Game

Polygon, the video game website owned by Vox Media, has spoken to representatives for 2K Games, who gave them (as well as IGN) the following statement:

We are highly respectful of the way that our partners choose to run their business and manage our partnerships accordingly. We can confirm that Hulk Hogan will not appear in WWE 2K16.

Polygon also asked the 2K representative if Hogan would be removed from any past WWE games. They were told that while it was a "fair question," the company has "no other comments at this time."

WWE 2K16 is being hyped as literally the biggest WWE video game, with by far the most expansive roster in the franchise's history. Unless something changes drastically in the next few months, though, we now know one WWE legend who won't be in the game.
