Breaking News

0731-bret-the-hitman-hart-meek-mill-GETTY-TMZ-01Another Canadian superstar is going in on Meek Mill -- Bret "The Hitman" Hart ... who just poured salt in the wound ... saying Meek's diss track was WEEEEAAKKKK!!!

"I’m glad to see a fellow Canadian walk away with the championship gold around his waist #drake #canadian #ovo #thebestthereiswasandeverwill," Hart posted. 

And as our friends at BSO pointed out, he also posted a pic of Drake's OVO owl. 

0731-subasset-bret-hitman-instagramDepending on who you talk to, Bret "The Hitman" Hart is the greatest Canadian professional wrestler of all-time and is considered one of the greatest if not the greatest technical wrestler of all-time. 

The fact even he is dissing Meek Mill tells you how big this battle between Drake and Meek has gotten.

If you wanted to use a wrestling analogy to describe the beef, Drake is currently John Cena and Meek is Fandango.

Yes, it is going that bad for Meek at the moment.

0728-john-cena-wwe-noseStill think wrestling is fake?? 

WWE superstar John Cena -- star of one of the biggest movies in the country right now -- broke his nose during Monday Night Raw last night ... after Seth Rollins bashed him in the face with a flying knee. 

Despite blood dripping from his honker, the "Trainwreck" star continued with the match 

WWE doc Steve Daquino says Cena suffered a nasal fraction -- and explained, "He’s got quite a bit of displacement, so we sent him over to the local emergency room so he can be evaluated by the ears, nose and throat doctor who’s on call tonight and see what can be done to properly repair it."


By the way, Cena ended up WINNING the match. 

Big Show John Cena's 'Trainwreck' Junk ... Is Too Much for Me

7/25/2015 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

John Cena naked might be a glorious thing to behold, but his fellow WWE star Big Show draws the line at seeing the man's semi-erect penis on a massive movie screen.

We got Big Show at LAX, and filled him on (spoiler alert) Cena's scene in "Trainwreck" where he shows off a good bit of his championship goods. The big man's reaction is priceless -- at first, he's totally comfortable, but the details of the scene push him over the edge ... in a funny way.

Also comical -- our photog suggested Big Show, who played college hoops at Wichita State, could have taken Shaquille O'Neal back in the day.

Yes, he's a 7-footer ... but every man knows his limit.

And instead of distancing himself from Hogan -- on the heels of the n-word scandal -- the ex champ went out of his way to verbally embrace him. 

Foreman added, "He is a friend of mine. We have hung out together and we have even been in the ring together. I consider him a friend.”

0724-hogan-jones-tmz-wwe-01Virgil -- one of the most iconic black wrestlers ever -- says the Hulk Hogan he considered a mentor and a friend never showed any signs of racism in all the years he's known him. 

Virgil tells TMZ Sports he was saddened Friday morning when he read about Hogan's N-word rant on a sex tape, and says he doesn't condone racism or racist behavior one bit. 

But Virgil tells us, "You can only judge a person based on past experience. Hulk Hogan has never given me a reason to believe he is a racist."

He tweeted, ""Lets lend our support to the Hulkster  who most certainly is not a racist @Scottiepippen @MagicJohnson @Shaq @MikeTyson." So far, he's gotten zero response publicly.

Dennis, might wanna stick to North Korea.

Hulk Hogan Sex Tape N-Word Rant ... Is Not Who I Am

7/24/2015 9:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News


Hulk Hogan is apologizing for using the n-word during an angry rant about his daughter's ex-boyfriend, and it doesn't reflect who he really is -- but a transcript of the remarks paints a much different picture. 

Hulk tells us ... "Eight years ago I used offensive language during a conversation. It was unacceptable for me to have used that offensive language; there is no excuse for it; and I apologize for having done it." 

The language he's referring to is outrageous -- coming on the tail end of his sex tape. Hulk says ... "I mean, I don't have double standards. I mean, I am a racist, to a point, f**king n**gers." 

He continues, "I mean I'd rather if she was going to f**k some n**ger, I'd rather have her marry an 8-foot tall n**ger worth a hundred million dollars! Like a basketball player."

Hogan is suing a website for releasing the sex tape, and the n-word rant is expected to come out when the case goes to trial later this year. 

In his apology, Hogan says ... "I am disappointed with myself that I used language that is offensive and inconsistent with my own beliefs. It is not who I am. I continue to work every day to improve as a person, and this matter is an important learning experience for me in that regard."

He adds, that language "is inconsistent with my own beliefs."

WWE superstar Big Show says Doink the Clown's family is WRONG to go after the WWE for the wrestler's death ... claiming Vince McMahon does EVERYTHING he can to protect the talent. 

The 7-footer was out in L.A. when we asked about the wrongful death lawsuit filed by the mother of Doink's children -- which claims Doink's life spiraled out of control due to concussions he suffered in the ring. 

"I think that everybody who steps through those ropes knows what could possibly happen," Big Show says.

"You gotta accept that responsibility as a talent if you step those ropes, whether you're a boxer, ultimate fighter or sports entertainer."

Big Show says he has nothing but good things to say about the WWE -- adding, "I've seen how much they've gone above and beyond to take care of the talent and do everything they can where no one ever did that before."

Doink the Clown Baby Mama Sues WWE Wrestling Killed Him

7/2/2015 6:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0702-doink-the-clown-youtubeThe mother of Doink the Clown's children is suing the WWE -- claiming the former wrestling star suffered serious brain injuries in the ring that led to his death ... and the WWE ignored the problem. 

Doink -- real name Matthew Osborne -- died from a drug overdose in 2013 ... but in her lawsuit, Michelle James says his drug addiction was a result of years of concussions he sustained while wrestling.  

James says the WWE knew about the dangers of the brain injuries that has plagued WWE wrestlers for years ... and says the organization could have helped her son seek proper treatment.  

James says the WWE did create a program in 2006 called the "Wellness Program" -- but says it only deceived Doink by creating a false sense of security that led him to NOT get adequate treatment for his problems.  

But the most dramatic part of her suit ... James says Vince McMahon has essentially turned a blind eye to the scores of WWE superstars who have died young over the years -- ignoring huge warning signs that could've saved Doink and others. 

She lists dozens of examples ... including the Ultimate Warrior, Mr. Perfect, Crush, Bam Bam Bigelow, Eddie Guerrero, Randy Savage, Big Boss Man, Yokozuna, Chris Benoit and more.

James is suing for wrongful death, fraud and negligence. 

A lawyer for the WWE told the Dallas Morning News ... the suit has no merit and accuses Doink's family of simply trying to get "NFL money."
