Hulk Hogan is the biggest thing the wrestling business has ever seen, but his biggest battle is being waged outside the ring.
Ex-wife Linda Bollea wrote a tell-all book, "Wrestling the Hulk—My Life Against the Ropes" in which Hulk Hogan and his attorney say she slandered the former legend. She has been on record saying that Hogan had a sexual relationship with another wrestler, Brutus Beefcake.
They’re are going to make the case that Hogan’s reputation was tainted and will sue to get back some of the manhood that Miss Bollea took when she walked out of divorce court with 70 percent of total holdings.
Hogan’s attorney, Wil Florin, told the Tampa Bay Tribune about his client’s decision to take this case to court:
He's being accused of all sorts of vile conduct that he did not commit. Miss Bollea's made enough of these outrageous allegations that it's time they stop. The only realistic way of making them stop is through the court system.
This sounds like a way to get back some of the money that Linda Hogan walked away with in their divorce proceedings. While it may be unbearable for Hogan to be called gay, this is more about the money.
How Should Hulk Hogan Handle This Situation?
If Hogan weren’t gay, he should have no problem letting that slide off his back. It really doesn’t matter what she said though, because this is just a way for Hogan to drag his ex-wife through the same mud she has been dragging him through for the last few years. It's just revenge for Hogan's ego.
While Hogan’s popularity is down and out, he still feels like it runs rampant. It’s that delusional attitude that will drag this scenario out over the next two years.
Expect plenty of secrets to come out over the next few months. This should be fun.
