"It's very surprising," Comtois told Radar. "He never demonstrated any behavior like that when I was around."

As Radar reported, Hogan, born Terry Bollea, was caught blurting out repulsive statements like "I am a racist … f*cking n*ggers…" But Comtois insists he never saw that side of the pro wrestler.

"Not once!" he insisted. "There were no racial overtones. He never ranted about anything. He wouldn't go off about anyone, color or background. This is a real surprise for me."

"I don't know what he may or may or may not have been thinking, "Comtois continued. "It's like your pastor saying something and going, 'Did you just say that?!' That's how aghast I am."

Hogan has been fired from the WWE in the wake of the scandal. He admitted to the outburst, calling his words "unacceptable."
