Los Angeles - Kevin Nash has defended Hulk Hogan after he was sacked by the WWE for using a racial slur.

The 61-year-old wrestler - whose real name is Terry Bollea - can be heard in a 2007 sex tape, with the recording made public just last week, using the 'N-word' as he speculated about his daughter sleeping with a black man.

However, Magic Mike XXL actor Kevin, 56, who has known Hulk for years, with the pair even forming the wrestling faction nWo in WCW together, was quick to defend his friend on Twitter and insist he has never heard him use racial slurs.

The recording features Hogan making a string of racist jibes to Heather Clem, a friend's wife whom he was filmed having sex with.

Meanwhile, another wrestler Sean Waltman has suggested that Hulk explain himself on a TV chat show.

Waltman - known as X-Pac in the ring - previously co-starred in an amateur porn film 1 Night in China with his ex Joanie Laurer A.K.A wrestler Chyna.

Hogan has a $100m lawsuit pending against Gawker - the website that leaked his sex tape - for invasion of privacy. It will go to court later this year.
