Hulk Hogan has officially left WWE, the company has confirmed.

The termination of his contracts comes after all references to him were removed from the official website, and rumours circulated that he had gone on a "racial tirade".

In an official statement, WWE announced: "WWE terminated its contract with Terry Bollea (aka Hulk Hogan).

"WWE is committed to embracing and celebrating individuals from all backgrounds as demonstrated by the diversity of our employees, performers and fans worldwide."

It is still not confirmed exactly why Hogan's contract has been ended.

As well as his profile in the alumni section, all his merchandise has been pulled from the online store - certainly making it look like his time with the company has come to an end.

When searching for Hogan's profile online and attempting to access it that way, an error message appears which reads: "You are not authorised to access this page."

There are reports that the sudden end to their working relationship is the result of a video or audio of the star on a "racial tirade", although renowned professional wrestling writer Dave Meltzer described it as "a rumour going round".

An audio clip has surfaced online in which Hogan repeatedly uses the n-word during an interview discussing his early career and the use of the word on screen, although it appears this is from around 2012 and not the incident leading to the controversy.

Hogan himself is yet to comment on the reports, although he did post a cryptic message referring to a "storm", and putting his faith in "God and his Universe".

He tweeted: "In the storm I release control,God and his Universe will sail me where he wants me to be,one love. HH (sic)"

Whilst his position - and the reasons behind his apparent exit - are unclear, he has also been removed from the Tough Enough and Hall of Fame sections of the website.

Mirror Celeb have contacted WWE and Hulk Hogan's reps for comment.

He is famed for wearing bandanas as part of his everyday attire both in an out of the ring.
And wrestling legend Hulk Hogan has now ordered his new Florida restaurant to abandon what some claimed was a racist dress code that banned that very item of attire.
Other pieces of clothing that were not allowed at the Florida eatery Hogan's Beach, included 'low hanging pants,' 'skull caps' and 'oversized jewelry,' the latter again standing out as the WWE superstar is noted for wearing a large crucifix around his neck.
