| — Hulk Hogan to wrestle NEW ZEALAND/Talks BOBBY ROODE!
FEB 20th, 2012 Hulkamaniacs rejoice! King of big time wrestling Hulk Hogan plans to to visit New Zealand. Hogan – real name Terry Bollea – wants to let his Kiwi fans see him and his TNA (Total Nonstop Action Wrestling) co-stars competing live. TNA Impact Wrestling started screening this month on Sky TV channel the BOX. “I know we are new in the marketplace there and we really want to make a good footprint everywhere we go,” Hogan told Sunday News from Orlando, Florida.“And since the response has been so incredible already from your country, we really want to follow it up. “We not only want to send the show there and make sure everybody knows about us and sees and loves the show, but we also want to come to the marketplace there and service the people with a live show. “You tell me when your next summer is and that’s when I’ll be there. “If you guys get the show red-hot and the numbers and ratings go through the roof, we’ll be there a lot quicker.” Hogan said he had been eager to visit New Zealand after being told about it by Kiwi professional wrestlers Butch Miller and Luke Williams, who starred as tag team the Bushwhackers.”I haven’t been to New Zealand before but we are really looking forward to coming over, having you take us around your beautiful country and showing us the sights. “My friends Butch and Luke – the Bushwhackers, who I worked with all through the 80s and 90s – have told me all about how beautiful the place is. “They talked to me several times back then about coming down for a visit but I was so busy wrestling and running around chasing my tail doing TV shows and kids movies and stuff that I never had a chance to come your way.” The 2.01m, 137kg 12-time world professional wrestling champion is impressed by our national game.”I’ve heard all about the All Black rugby team. They are tougher than the football players here in America, that’s what I do know. “They play without pads, it’s non-stop and they just keep hittin’. They seem to hit high, they seem to hit low, and they seem to be able to do everything. “They are a whole different breed of athlete – they are really something.” At 58, the wrestler, movie star, TV personality and singer is still a very busy man. “It’s getting really crazy again. I had a bunch of back surgeries … but I’m back on my feet now, I’m training and every once in a while I’ll jump in the ring and Hulk up on some people.”I got remarried and I’ve got a young wife who is 36 years old. She kinda puts a little spring in my step, you know. “I’m busy with TNA and here in the United States, I do a bunch of endorsements and commercials and life is really good. “But I gotta say, TNA and Impact Wrestling is my main focus now.”Hogan is a six-time WWF/WWE Champion, six-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion, and former WWE World Tag Team Champion. “I’ve been around since 1977 and I love this business; it’s in my blood. “I was a bad guy for a while, then a good guy for a while and I think the fans saw the [TV] reality show, Hogan Knows Best, and saw that I was a dad and a husband, and that I had the normal problems like everybody else does with paying the bills and that sort of thing,” he said.On if he delayed Bobby Roode’s title run: “That’s true. Because he was… this is just my opinion and this is just a gut feeling — trying to look at the company and what was best for the company. I sat home and I saw his parents telling the world what a good boy he was and his wife telling the world how great of a husband he was and his kids telling the world how great of a dad he was. He’s the ultimate good guy and all of a sudden, he’s going to win the belt. And then what?” “Who’s he going to wrestle? Plain, white, milk toast. And I sat back and I watched it and I went, ‘Oh, my God. You guys have accidentally done one of the best old school angles I’ve ever seen.’ Let’s let his parents and everybody say how great he is and then turn him heel. You’ve got the perfect set up. Family, mother, grandfather, kids, police men — everybody saying how great he is… Turn him heel, give him that edge and then he’ll have everybody to work with. I mean, it just made sense.”

— BREAKING NEWS – HULK HOGAN defeats RIC FLAIR!!
Hulk cut his promo straight after Flair’s entrance. It was the closest Hogan got to reliving his old form. He really played the Aussie crowd well and pumped up the attack from flair at the press conference. Hulks entrance music was not either of the two that fans are familiar with, which spoiled the entrance somewhat. Regardless, he still got a standing and rousing ovation. Once the match got under way, Hulk threw Flair to the ground on consecutive clinches to display his strength advantage. Flair then challenged Hulk to a test of strength, much to Hogan’s amusement. Hulk powered Flair to the ground to again win the battle of strength.
The match spilled out of the ring with both men receiving cuts after being slammed into the crowd barriers. Flair looked to be fake as he was covered in blood too quickly. Flair gained control through dirty tricks including two low blows. Throughout the match, Hogan treated the fans to two “Hulking up” displays and a couple of finger shakes, which was really enjoyed by the crowd. Both men were slow moving and looked their age, but the crowd was still heavily engaged and enjoying their first taste of Hogan and Flair. One complaint would be that Hogan didn’t finish flair off with the leg drop. Rather, he gave flair a receipt for a prior attack with brass knuckles (which led to the pin).
— HULKAMANIA tour – AUSTRAILIA
Hulk Hogan has announced his first tour of Australia. The “Hulkamania – Let the Battle Begin” tour feature four arena shows in Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and Sydney in late November, with tickets going on sale September 24th. “I have been blessed with the opportunity to perform in front of fans around the world,” Hogan is quoted as saying in a press release. “I have always wanted to perform in Australia as I have heard Aussies are some of the greatest wrestling fans ever. I am grateful for this opportunity, and hope that this is just the beginning of a great thing!”
Some of the names set to appear include former WWE superstars Ken Anderson, Umaga, Rikishi, Orlando Jordan, Gangrel, Val Venis and the Godfather. Former WWE developmental diva Lacy Von Eric is also booked to appear. Several of Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff’s friends are also rumored for the tour, including Diamond Dallas Page, Brutus Beefcake the Nasty Boys. The biggest selling point, however, will be the opportunity to see two of the biggest legends in wrestling history returning to the ring to renew an old rivalry. It was rumored last week that Ric Flair was in negotiations to wrestle Hulk Hogan on at least one of the shows of the tour. According to PWInsider.com, a source close to Ric Flair has confirmed that the Nature Boy will indeed be coming out of retirement to wrestle Hulk Hogan on the tour.
Hulk Hogan.co.uk will be covering the coverage of The Hulkamania tour, so keep checking back Hulkamaniacs!!!
— Hogan wips Ortans ass
At Saturday Night’s Main Event on July 15, Orton interrupted a special appearance by Hogan and his daughter Brooke. However, he was very respectful, and even brought Brooke a rose. He then “respectfully challenged” Hogan to a match at SummerSlam, which the Hulkster respectfully accepted. The two then shook hands, and all seemed well.
Until later that night, that is. As Orton and Brooke conversed, the Hulkster interrupted and brushed the Legend Killer aside. But after Hogan helped his daughter into their car, Orton snuck up from behind and gave him an RKO, sending the Hall of Famer face-first into the trunk of the car. As Brooke ran out to tend to her father, Orton walked away with a sly grin on his face.
— Hulk Hogan vs Orton at Summerslam?/Full Sun Interview
Everyone besides Hulk (her record label, publicists, etc…) is said to be negative towards the angle. The angle would bring her an incredible level of exposure, however, WWE has a negative stigma. The feeling is that if she goes through with the angle, it will give her an even more difficult time of being taken seriously in the music industry because most people see her as a publicity stunt (being Hogan’s daughter). If she appears on a wrestling show, she will probably become more of a joke of an act in the eyes of people outside of professional wrestling. Also note, Hogan’s WWE contract gives him full creative control on both angles and finishes. source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter
I have now added the Full Interview of Hulk being interviewed by the UK newspaper Sun.
— Hogan On Jay Leno Recap
Hogan then introduces his family. Leno asks Brooke if she is 17 now.. and turning 18 Friday? Leno jokes for her to come back on Friday when the old man isn’t around. Leno asks Hogan what he does when the guys come and try to get her. Hogan says he is trying to loosen up now that she is turning 18. Leno notes that Nick is a car guy. He says that a week ago he drove a car and if things go good, he can be driving for Dodge.
Leno asks the family how they can put cameras in the house to make this reality show. Hogan says it was tough, but it was his wife’s idea. Hogan says that at first it was just to plug Brooke’s music career. They had a vote with the family and the family agreed but him. Hogan says that he had enough of the cameras and wanted a little privacy, but they like the show. Leno asks if they ever forgot that there were cameras in the house. Hogan says he and his wife were getting a massage on their anniversary. They made friends with the camera crew and production crew. The couple went to the top roof and asks his wife if they take off their underwear, and she said whatever. He took it off and began swinging it. His wife says he forgot the cameras weren’t rolling because the crew weren’t there. Leno joked that of everybody in his family, Hogan is the least person he wanted to see naked. Leno asks how long the couple have been married: 22 years. Leno asks what the secret is to keeping Hogan happy: cooking… a lot.
Speaking of food, Leno asks Hogan if this was true. Hogan was offered the George Foreman grill idea but he passed the idea. Hogan made an excuse that he wasn’t home at the time and his wife forgot to tell him that somebody called to offer him the idea. By the time Hogan called back, Foreman took the grill and $400 million dollars later, George is smiling ear to ear. Hogan is now coming out with a grill. He jokes that it is better than Foreman’s grill. Hogan brings out a “Hulk Hogan Engergy Drink.” Hogan makes Leno taste it and he says it’s Sprite… Hogan says thank you, it tastes great. Leno jokes that he is still laughing about the Foreman grill.
Leno asks how he keeps from spoiling the kids. Do they have credit cards? He says they do. The wife says that she just took Nick’s credit card last week and sometimes they have too much and forget where they came from. Leno plugs the show some more time and the segment is over.

–Hulk on Jimmy Kimmel live!!! July 29th, 2005
Hulk pointed out Nick with his ‘albino mohawk’ and Jimmy questioned his driving on the show, to which Hulk responded with a ‘shh.’ He said Nick now had his permit at 15 and was driving legally and preceded to point out Linda and Brooke. Jimmy brought up how Hulk plants a GPS in Brooke’s car and “that’s why ‘Hogan Knows Best’ is the best show on television other than Jimmy Kimmel.” Hulk then mentioned his policy of letting Nick date freely at 15 and restricting Brooke’s dating at 17 since boys are different than girls. He goofed by saying, “girls can’t get preg- I mean boys can’t get pregnant.” Jimmy said that they would find a way eventually. Jimmy asked how Brooke felt about all this and she said that he is overprotective but she is getting to that age where she understands her responsibilities and won’t have sex until marriage. Jimmy comments on the episode where Hulk confronts the 22 year-old and Hulk details his plan of installing a GPS in her car and having Jimmy Hart and ‘Nasty’ Brian Knobs follow her. The mention of the two men got a rise from the crowd and a ‘Nasty!’ from Linda. In a nutshell, Hulk said that he wouldn’t be seeing that guy again and Jimmy joked that he was deceased.
Jimmy asks if they have really gotten into doing the show and Hulk says yes.
He mentions that he didn’t want to do the show earlier when the Osbournes were hot and that there is something called a “21-year itch when you’re married.” He says the show has brought them all together and that they have really gotten into the cameras and have made friends with the crew. Jimmy says that they should fight the Osbournes and other reality families. Hulk says they would “kill ’em” and that the best part of having the cameras around is that he always gets the last word in.
Jimmy questions if Hulk is the main Hogan and Hulk says, “nah, my wife is the main Hogan.” Jimmy asks if the kids are bad, how does it work and do they get bodyslams? Nick says that they get “armbars, bodyslams, full nelsons, everything.” Hulk says that the family is very physical and that he taught Brooke to defend herself while Nick used to box. Jimmy says they really could kill the Osbournes and the Jackson family too. He’d love to see Linda take on LaToya.
Jimmy mentions that Hulk will be facing the Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels, which incites another rise from the crowd. Hulk says wrestling is like a cult in that, “once you’re in you can never get out.” Hulk mentions his induction into the Hall of Fame and that he was given 10 minutes, though the fans cheered for about 20 minutes and were screaming ‘one more match.’ He then says he picked his spot the next night at WrestleMania and ran down while the fans went crazy. He says the match at SummerSlam is like a dream match since he was the old generation and Shawn was the guy who tried to carry the ball after him and it “didn’t work out too well … there was always that jealousy thing.” He says that he will be 52 by the time SummerSlam comes and Jimmy comments on how huge he is and that he must be on steroids. Hulk says he used to be and Jimmy says he (Jimmy) has to get on them. Hulk says the last time he weighed 285 was in ninth grade but that he was always fat. He figured that training was better than real work and therefore it is an even trade off. Jimmy congratulates Hulk and the family on their success and once again plugs the show on Vh1 and SummerSlam as they go to break.
Back from the break, Hulk sticks around as they interview Jerry Ferrara (who is a good deal shorter than Hulk.) Jimmy asks if he is a Hulkamaniac and Jerry says, “who isn’t a Hulkamaniac.” He also mentions that he had the Hulkamania weight set growing up at 4 years old and Hulk remembers the blue dumbbells. Jerry said the set had dumbbells, a weight chart, and a tape of ‘Real American.’ Hulk says he brought out a tape not too long ago and couldn’t get through it. Jimmy challenges Jerry to sing the song and Jerry remembers the chorus and sings along with Hulk. Jimmy asks if Hulk will let Jerry date Brooke and Hulk asks his age. Jerry says 25 and Hulk promptly says no. They continue and finish the interview with Hulk laughing at times.
At the very end of the show, Hulk and his family are sitting on a couch with Jerry and Jimmy once again plugs ‘Hulk Knows Best’ and SummerSlam as Jack Johnson (the musical guest,) plays them off the air.

–Hulk Hogan Speaks On His Reality TV Show, Working Injured & More !!! – July 10th, 2005 VH1 has filled its slate full of voyeuristic reality shows, having just given the greenlight to series going behind-the-scenes of two celebrity families and one that scours America to cast a new male dance troupe.
Hogan Knows Best takes cameras into the home of Hulk Hogan, the world famous wrestler and very “red state” suburban dad who lives on a 20,000-square-foot estate in Florida with wife Linda, 16 year-old daughter Brooke, who he won’t allow to date, and 14 year-old son Nick, who wants to be a race car driver. The show promises to take you “inside the Hogan household as Hulk and Linda wrestle with being PG parents in an increasingly R-rated world.”
Hogan Knows Best is a production of VH1 in conjunction with Pink Sneakers. Kimberly Belcher Cowin serves as executive producer, along with John Ehrhard as producer and Scott Bennett as director and co-producer for Pink Sneakers. Warren Cohen serves as senior producer, along with Brad Abramson, Michael Hirschorn and Shelly Tatro as executive producers for VH1.
Being Bonaduce takes a look into the relationship between Danny Bonaduce and his wife Gretchen. Meeting and marrying seven hours into their first date, the Bonaduces, who have been together for fifteen years, have faced addiction, infidelity and Danny’s “death wish” antics. Told through a combination of couples therapy and reality, the series offers a fly-on-the-wall look at their life-altering breakthroughs, mundane frustrations, modern-day romance and endless eccentricities involved.
|Hogan steals the Summer|
|IT’S amazing when you think about it.
On paper Hulk Hogan shouldn’t be popular with today’s breed of wrestling fans.
While others are moonsaulting off of ladders and putting people through tables, Hulk’s big boot/leg drop routine has changed little since the first SummerSlam was held in 1988.
The crowd boo John Cena for his cheesy gimmick and limited wrestling skills, which are both accusations you can also level at Hogan.
But at this weekend’s SummerSlam, now in it’s 19th year, the Hulkster was the most poplar man in Boston.
And, we’ve got a confession to make, he was also the most popular man as we watched back home in London.
So what gives Hogan such amazing appeal on Sunday night?
First off SummerSlam, as much as WrestleMania, will always be associated with the Hulkster.
He headlined the first four shows and returned last year for a memorable main event with Shawn Michaels.
Secondly speak to any sports fan and they’ll always reminisce about the golden age of football/cricket/wrestling being when they were young.
And since most of this generation would have grown up on Hulk – either in his original WWF babyface run or heel WCW tenure – they’ll go mad for every muscle flex and finger point.

|Hulk Hogan 2nd Interview with: The Sun|
|WRESTLING legend Hulk Hogan has lashed out at the industry which made him a megastar. And he has demanded an end to the decades-long cover-up of steroid abuse in the sport.Hogan, 54, took the muscle-enhancing drugs almost daily for 16 years during his career and says he can spot a user a mile off. With more than 100 grapplers dying before the age of 50 in the last decade, he is begging others to face up to the crisis.
The Sun has been leading an anti-steroid abuse campaign since wrestler Chris Benoit murdered his wife and seven-year-old son before committing suicide in June. A handful of former stars have already spoken out and prompted US politicians to start investigating the industry.
But many in the WWE, the world’s biggest fight franchise, deny there is a problem and have blasted their ex-colleagues as bitter failures who haven’t wrestled in years. They cannot same the same about Hogan, wrestling’s equivalent of Pele or Muhammad Ali who was fighting for them just 12 months ago.
In an exclusive Sun interview, he said: “Are steroids a problem in wrestling? Oh God yeah. They have always been a part of the business. It’s prevalent. “But there’s not some big mystery to it. Just open your eyes and it’s there. You can look at a wrestler and pretty much tell.
“They will be above their weight range, with these big veins. My body weight is around 285lb, depending on how much junk I eat. Even if I was 25 and clean, I could probably only carry 300lb. “Yet when I was wrestling I weighed anywhere between 320 and 340lb, because my body was full of water weight.
“My face was puffy, my arms were so bulky I couldn’t touch my shoulders. You could take one look at me and know I was on something. “Steroids have been around for ever in other sports too, but if we have to pick on somebody now then let’s pick on wrestling.
“I’m glad the business is in the spotlight because they’re probably the only ones smart enough, after being able to dodge it for so long, to know how to fix it.” NOW CLEAN … obscene muscles have gone
The Hulkster added: “I remember up until the early 1990s any wrestler could walk into a doctor and they’d write you a prescription for steroids. “Then there was a huge trial where WWE boss Vince McMahon was unfairly accused and rightly acquitted of distributing the drugs to his workers.
“This ushered in the era of wrestlers playing ‘hide and seek’. “If they can get away with things then they will. But now I think we’re at the 11th hour.
“We can’t have hide and seek being played any more. “The WWE say they are drug testing, but if they are then it’s not good enough. Because these guys have to stop dying.”
Despite going on TV at the time to deny it, Hogan has since confessed he regularly used steroids between 1975 and 1991. In that period he helped turn the WWE, then known as the WWF, from a New York-based wrestling group into a global entertainment brand.
In 1984 he won their world heavyweight championship, holding it on and off for the best part of the next seven years and starring in the main event at six of their first seven WrestleMania extravaganzas. But behind his superhero mystique lay a dirty secret.
In his 2003 autobiography Hogan admitted: “I would tell kids to train, say their prayers and take their vitamins. But it wasn’t just vitamins I was taking. “But at that time every wrestler I knew was on steroids. They were part of my generation. I’m not making excuses but they were everywhere. And a lot of that had to do with what we knew about them, which obviously wasn’t enough.
“The most commonly prescribed were testosterone, Deca-Durabolin and Dianabol. I never had a question about whether I would take them. “It was part of my daily regimen. Did you take a shower? Yeah. Did you brush your teeth? Yeah. Did you take your steroids? Yeah.
“That was the deal. It was how I lived.” Alongside steroids, experts also blame painkillers and recreational drug abuse for the high number of deaths among young wrestlers.
Again it is something Hogan witnessed and he is pleased to say the industry has made progress on the latter. He said: “There’s definitely much less of a party scene and cocaine use today.
“When I went back to the WWE, I’d go down to the Marriott bar after the show – and all you would see is Ric Flair there with a Jack Daniels and Hulk Hogan drinking a beer. “In the old days EVERY wrestler would be in the bar and then they’d go out and stay out all night.
“But now they are all upstairs on their computers. “Maybe they’re not playing games up there, but it certainly seems a lot better.
“As for painkillers, like steroids, they have always been around. I was naïve when I first entered wrestling and didn’t even know what they were. “But there was a point later on where I got hurt and found out… pretty quickly!
“I used them but not to the point of abusing and to the levels of the horror stories I’ve heard. “I always knew my limitations and had regular blood tests and physicals.
“During the years when I would hear of these massive doses of pills some guys would take, I remember thinking they would laugh at me if they knew what I was involved in. I would be a big joke.” Hogan is currently in talks to start his own promotion, in which the focus will be firmly taken off those with superhuman physiques.
He said: “I don’t know what the other federations can do, but I do know what I can do and it’s all part of my plan for a new wrestling idea. “It came from another person and when they told it to me it was the smartest thing I’d ever heard.
“I have been speaking to people from the American television networks and other important people in LA. In the first two weeks they raised $40million (£20million). I need about $80-100million to start it up. “If me and my partners pull it off then the wrestlers will have a more natural look and an easier schedule – all of the things people are saying the business needs.
“And then Vince McMahon and everyone else in the business will have to follow suit.” Hogan is fully aware that his stance opens him up to charges of hypocrisy.
Critics argue he was the “poster boy” for steroids throughout much of his career and other wrestlers emulated him to get the same “main event” physique. So isn’t Hulk Hogan’s plea to get steroids out of wrestling like George Bush calling for troops to leave Iraq?
The Hulkster replies: “I’m not trying to repent but I am being honest about my failings. I want youngsters to be educated. “If I was 25 right now, coming into this business, I don’t know what I’d be like in that locker room.
“But I know one thing. Wrestling needs to make sure everything is above board. “So is it hypocritical of me? Yes.
“But is it hypocritical of me now in 2007? No. I think it’s more like poetic justice. “I’ve learned from being around, surviving and watching the many mistakes I and others made.
“I thank God I’m still alive!”
