You know there were major problems in my marriage.
The fans know what’s happened to me over the past couple of years. I lost my family. I pretty much got devastated financially and the fans know that I’ve had some hard times – and that’s the nature of loyal fans. They want to see the people that they love and believe in get back on their feet.
The coolest thing and I have it at home is a huge Hulk Hogan normal-sized pinball machine. When people come over they play it for hours. When you hit the bumpers and the bells ring it goes ‘Oh yeah!’ The whole time you’re playing this machine it’s yelling and screaming at you ‘What you gonna do brother?!’ I think that’s the coolest.
It’s tough because a lot of my friends in normal life a lot of my friends in the entertainment business and a lot of my friends in the wrestling business are gay. Just to say something spiteful and hurtful I don’t get it… if it was true and I was gay I’d embrace it and I’d tell you guys about it and I’d celebrate it.
I’m the man that made wrestling famous.
I’m 58 years old and I just went through 8 back surgeries. They started cutting on me in February 2009 and I was basically bed ridden for almost two years. I got a real dose of reality that if you don’t have your health you don’t have anything.
I quit doing the movies because the wrestling was going so good and was so on fire during the ’80s and ’90s but I was getting all these movie scripts.
I fear no man no beast or evil brother.
As far as my divorce goes I love my family and I love my wife to death and I just don’t know what tomorrow’s going to bring.
All of a sudden Hulk Hogan has become retro. Hulk Hogan has become cool again. So to come out and to hear how loud the fans are. To hear how loyal the fans are it’s truly overwhelming. I just can’t believe I’ve been reborn in the WWE.
There’s a lot of gimmick infringement out there but that’s cool. It’s a compliment. But it all started right when I first came into the Garden. I came down to ‘Eye of the Tiger’ and when I hit the ring with the Sheik I just put my hand up to my ear by accident and the crowd got louder. I was like ‘Oh that works.’
