Wrestling Legend Hulk Hogan made the trip to the Allstate Studio this morning to sit-down with Boomer & Craig and chew the fat a bit.
The 58 year-old Hogan talked with the guys about his current venture as a member of Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) and his plans to walk up to fellow wrestler Sting and punch him right in the face.
Hogan also talked about how he got started in wrestling back in the late 70’s, training under Yasuhiro Kojima (aka Mira Matsuda) and getting his leg purposely broken during his first wrestling match.
We heard about the overwhelming success of Wrestle Mania 3, which took place in Pontiac, Michigan and sold more tickets than a Rolling Stone concert and a visit from the Pope.
Craig of course asked Hogan about playing ‘Thunderlips’ in the movie ‘Rocky 3’ – a role that catapulted him into stardom and the 2008 film ‘The Wrestler’ staring Mickey Rourke. Hogan talked about how he was approached for the role on a number of occasions.
When word traveled around the building that the Hulkster was in the the house, lets just say all hell broke loose around here…
