James Ellsworth Reveals Details About Hulk Hogan’s WWE Apology Meeting (AUDIO)

james ellsworth hulk hogan meeting extreme rules triple h mark henry

James Ellsworth opened up about Hulk Hogan‘s apology to the WWE roster and discussed some of the things that were said during the meeting.

Ellsworth talked about the apology — which took place backstage before Extreme Rules — on the latest episode of Duhcast with cohost Dennis Farrell.

James explained Triple H kicked things off talking about the dangers of social media, as well as how easy it is for someone to film a person without their knowledge. Hogan then took the floor and apologized for the things he said. He also reminded the roster that he didn’t know he was being recorded when the remarks were made.

“For the most part, it seemed like everyone was very accepting of his apology,” said Ellsworth. Adding, “I disagree with what he said, but I do believe he feels sorry about it. I really really really do believe that. If I didn’t I wouldn’t even comment on this.”

James additionally says Mark Henry gave Hulk his stamp of approval, but it’s unclear if he meant during the meeting.

As we previously reported, Henry says there’s currently a divide amongst the black wrestlers over the backstage apology. He described it as a 50-50 split … with some saying “to hell with him.”

Listen to the audio below (this discussion begins around 13:00).

  1. It sounds like Ellsworth is basically saying that its a shame that he was caught because someone recorded him. imo. Hogan is such a big star overtime that its inevitable people will look the other way on this. But it seems also to me, just like alot of celebrity “mishaps” that because of his star power, he should be excused. WWE doesnt really need Hogan in the present day, but of course, they will make more money with him. That’s what really matters, not whether or not Hogan is really sincere here, because to me, it’s just classic damage control panic. Hogans actually used language like that on multiple occasions, so its hard for me, personally, to believe him.

    • Shut the fuck up.

    • Kamala, Tony Atlas and Booker T said he never treated them any differently than anyone else. If it’s words, some of that comes from how you are raised, older generations had more racism left over from previous generations and that gets burned into their thoughts after hearing it for decades. But with effort they can overcome it. I honestly believe most people around Hogan’s age have used racial slurs in their life, even if privately. (Notice I said “Most”, not all.) If everything we said in private was disclosed, most of us have said stuff that would offend and hurt others.
      It’s totally up to the individual to give forgiveness. We can say every person on earth that apologizes (for anything big or small) only does it because they got caught & want to be re-accepted. So just go on living life never forgiving anyone. Assume everyone who asks for it is not sincere. “The only thing evil can’t stand is forgiveness.”

  2. Anyways. Why is this dumbass Ellsworth revealing anything? That shit should be private between Hogan and the talent.

  3. This sounds like it was the usual celebrity “I’m sorry I got caught” rather than “I’m truly sorry”.

    God almighty will reveal whether Hogan was sincere in his apology to my black folks or not. Let’s wait for the events that would take place with Hogan from this point.

    Everything’s gonna be alright pretty soon!
