Brother – Hulk Hogan isn’t messing around these days, even when it comes to his daughter’s love life.
Hogan, a 12-time World Champion wrestling icon, apparently was responsible for the breakup between his daughter, Brooke, and former Dallas Cowboys center Phil Costa.
Costa and Brooke split up in November after getting engaged in June, as the WWE legend’s daughter said she wanted to focus on her music career.
As Hulk Hogan told 105.3 The Fan, though, music might have not been the real reason for the breakup.
“I love the Dallas Cowboys, been a fan forever,” Hogan said. “But my daughter was engaged to one of those guys and he didn’t walk the walk and talk the talk. I put a bullet in that really quick. There was no way my daughter was going to marry somebody that I don’t like, that got me mad or has got in my face.”
This begs the question: who would dare get in Hulk Hogan’s face?
“There was a little run in with only one of the Cowboys,” Hogan said. “But you know what, he knew better than to step up, ’cause he would have gotten slammed just like Andre the Giant.”
A lot of the old time wrestlers have trouble separating the character they played on screen from their actual self because back before the internet wrestling was still sort of real. Well no one is more delusional when it comes to distinguishing between the man and the character more than Hulk Hogan. He’s been in the news a lot lately now that’s he’s back with WWE and was apart of WrestleMania 30, and I swear to Bill Paxton he ends every interview with threatening to body slam somebody. That’s not the man Terry Bollea talking. You don’t body slam people in real life. It’s a very illogical fighting technique. But Hulk Hogan? He’ll body slam your ass in a millisecond. The best part is that Hogan doesn’t even care if it makes sense. You want to date his daughter? Well don’t get in Hogan’s face or else, you guessed it, he’s going to body slam you. Just pick you up off the ground and slam you to the ground. He is so delightfully insane it’s a joy to follow. Never change, Hulkster.
A vicious body slam by the big man! Before I even hit play on this video I knew the outcome. One guy clearly has sumo in his blood and the other, well the other is just some fat white guy. There is a HUGE difference between sumo wrestlers and fat guys. Sumo wrestlers are trained killing machines, while fat people are trained to kill vending machines. Big difference. Nothing against this dudes fat guy swag though. Maybe sumo just isn’t your thing.
PS- I need this video with the JR voice over. “MAHHHHH GODDDD ALLLMMIIIGGHHHTTYYYY”
Don’t sleep on the WWE. Last week Hall of Famer Jim Ross met with the NFLPA concerning a potential deal that would see ex NFL players have the chance to join the sports entertainment company. This is a smart move for multiple reasons. The physical build of NFL athletes and WWE superstars are very similar. While I’m aware wrestling is fake, the mindset needed to excel in these fields are also very similar. Throw in the fact that many former football players, including The Rock, Ron Simmons and Bill Goldberg, have become household wrestling names, and you have a recipe for success. In case you didn’t know, the Average Nobodies are huge football and wrestling fans. Once we heard the news of a possible collaboration, we sprinted to the liquor store, grabbed personal 30s, and started to develop wrestling personas for former NFL greats. Imagine Barry Sanders as a high flying luchador, or Ryan Leaf as a former quarterback turned crackhead. The possibilites are endless! Without further ado, here are the 4 newest additions to the WWE roster:
a.k.a Flutie Pebbles
a.k.a Flutie Scrambles
a.k.a The Little Giant
a.k.a The Mist
a.k.a The Brothers Grimm
