Hulk Hogan Revealed His Favorite Moment From His Pro Wrestling Career

It’s not every day one gets a glimpse into the mind of the immortal Hulk Hogan, and last week Hogan allowed Hulkamaniacs to ask him questions on his brand-new Youtube channel. In the video, we learned about Hogan’s favorite flavor of ice cream (chocolate), and Hogan even gave a protein shake recipe involving his favorite flavor. Hogan also claimed he was offered a full time role on The A-Team but chose not to, because he didn’t want to play referee between stars George Peppard and Mr T.
The Q and A also revealed that had Hogan not cut it as a wrestler, the Hulkster would likely be in a hotel lounge playing music for weddings and special events. Hogan was asked by a fan what was his personal favorite moment in his career, and he told the personal backstory that most fans didn’t know about the emotional release that came when he won the WWF Heavyweight Championship in 1984.
When I won the WWF Heavyweight title in Madison Square Garden, January 23, 1984 from the Iron Sheik. But there’s a backstory to it, we go back many years when I was going to the University of South Florida, majoring in finance and management with a minor in music. After a bunch of years of going to college and quitting to play music several times, I finally quit for good to be a professional wrestler. It just killed both my parents, it ruined their hopes and dreams for me. So there was a very strained relationship for quite a long time with me and my Mom and Dad. Then, at Madison Square Garden where I beat the Iron Sheik, I had both my parents in the audience, sitting next to Vince McMahon’s wife, Linda McMahon. When I came back with the belt – Andre was pouring champagne on my head – my Dad and Mom came to the dressing room. They both said how proud they were of me and they were very happy that I made that decision to be a wrestler.”

Severn vs Shamrock 3: Who Cares?

Dan Severn responds to Ken Shamrock: ‘Am I gonna stick around forever for a turd like him?’
Dan Severn still wants to fight Ken Shamrock but doesn’t see it happening. by Nick Baldwin at bloodyelbow.com
Dan Severn and Ken Shamrock both want to fight each other, but it seems the bout probably won’t happen. If you ask Shamrock why, he will tell you he is about to have his knee replaced, and any sort of competition is out of the picture for now. If you ask Severn why, it’s because Shamrock is full of excuses. Severn and Shamrock were scheduled to meet for the third time at UR Fight 1 in March 2016 — nearly 20 years after their rematch at UFC 9. But just over a week before the event, Shamrock was forced off the card. He first cited an injury as the cause for the bout cancellation. In reality, he was suspended 90 days by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) after testing positive for a steroid and an opioid in a drug test related to his Bellator 149 loss to…

Jack Swagger to MMA: Will He Succeed?

Jack Swagger to MMA:  Will He Succeed?
By:  Mad Dog Gil Guillory 
Excerpts from article by Jonathan Snowden who covers combat sports for Bleacher Report.

Jack Swagger/Jake Hager can still remember the roar of the crowd, more than 80,000 strong, when he challenged Alberto Del Rio for the WWE championship at WrestleMania 29. As Jack Swagger, he had polarized the WWE audience with his strong anti-immigration views, employing the catchphrase "we the people" and eventually ending up in a brief online feud with political commentator Glenn Beck.         

Unfortunately for Hager, that was back in 2013 and, in the world of wrestling, four years might as well be an eon. He'd spent most of his time since in seemingly pointless feuds or, worse in his mind, aimlessly drifting on WWE's B-programming, present but not taking part.

It was time for something new. But what? While trading wins back and forth on the deep undercard (Jack Swagger compiled a record of 63-62 in 2016, according to…

Bullet Club sold 400,000 shirts? WTF!?

The Bullet Club claim they have sold over 400,000 t-shirtsBy Tommy Messanoon November 30, 2017 7:30 pm Wow, that deal with Hot Topic is just too.....you know what never mind. Thanks to their recent announcement of a planned 10,000 seat arena show in 2018, The Bullet Club and Cody Rhodes are back in the crosshairs of the pro wrestling community at-large. A big stick pointing of the tentatively scheduled indie wrestling Super Bowl is who would finance the event? Well if you believe The Bullet Club themselves, their t-shirt deal with Hot Topic is doing very good and at this rate maybe the “All In” supershow may be financed on the backs of Rhodes, Bucks, Omega, Scurll and Page’s t-shirt sale. I can't see them selling 400,000 t-shirts in a 4 month period, but who am i?
