Growing up in the 80’s and 90’s who didn’t like or at at least watch Hulk Hogan?! We all wanted to be able to rip off our t shirts before beginning work like he did… however, that was then and now we talk about how his actions took more than a couple bucks from his bank account! Check it out!
September 16, 2013
At first the birds are chirping. The dogs are barking. White picket fences. Brand new Lamborghinis. Beach front properties. Love is in the air. But then comes lies, greed and cheating which turns a beautiful marriage into ugly, bloody and expensive.
We know that not all marriages have a happy ending. Especially those of the rich and famous, athletes and celebrities. That’s why we bring you “Celebrity Divorce Gore” filling you in on all the divorces of the celebrities. Welcome to “Celebrity Divorce Gore”.
Hello and thank you for tuning in to “Celebrity Divorce Gore”. Be sure to visit the other parts of DivorceTalkRadio.net as well as my own page JeffCarter.net.
Hopefully you’ve been enjoying these different podcasts I’ve been putting out about celebrities and I know I have, for sure. I’m learning all kinds of crazy stuff about every celebrity and every athlete or whatever.
The next person, well, people, but mainly the main focus of this divorce gore story is somebody that I looked up to and many kids have in the ’80s and ’90s that I remember. From movies to different dolls you can get, pillows, clothes, action figures, everything you could ever imagine, I tried to get my hands on it.
I know plenty of people that would. And even like pay-per-view–they made millions of dollars on WWF because of this one man. And they still do, as far as I know. I’m going to get into that and tell you about his background and stuff. We’re talking about The Hulkster: Hulk Hogan.
Who didn’t want to tear off their shirt like he did? I know I still try to do it, but I just don’t take anabolic steroids and I haven’t been working out as much, so I can’t quite do the t-shirt thing. But I have caught myself looking in the mirror trying to tear off my shirt. I’m not going to lie.
Hulk Hogan. Beautiful blond hair. I mean, now it’s balding. I’m pretty sure it’s almost all gone now. Beautiful daughter, as well. Hulk Hogan, man.
Who didn’t watch a wrestling match with him and The Undertaker and “Macho Man” Randy Savage, Bam Bam Bigelow? Who else? The Hart Brothers, Big Boss Man. There’s a million different wrestlers. I really liked it. I really got into it. For the longest time we really thought it was real.
I wonder how much damage UFC has taken a toll on the amount of money that WWE, WWF and all those wrestling shows and programs have, you know, how much that’s taken off. I really don’t know. As far as I know, when it comes to Rockford, where we’re from, they still sell out. They still get tons of people and tons of kids that want to come watch them perform. So I guess so.
So let’s first talk about the icon of many ’80s and ’90s children all over the world, wrestling fan or not. Who didn’t love Hulk? Everyone loved Hulk. Come on. Everybody did.
Hogan was actually a pudgy kid as a child. I didn’t know this. I thought he was always this athletic type of body or so or whatever. Actually, no. He was a bit more pudgy kid. He was a pudgy kid that ate like a pudgy kid.
It’s been rumored that he clocked in at 195 pounds at just the age of 12 years old. Wow. 200 pounds? I weigh, what, 231 now and I’m 31. So at 12, he was almost my weight. In fact, it was because of his weight and some rather nasty childhood ridiculing that he reportedly invested so much time in working out. Some times revenge is the greatest inspiration. This is true.
Another unknown fact about him, he was also in “Rocky 3″ and he made 150 grand just to appear as Thunder Lips. “To all my little Hulkamaniacs, say your prayers, take your vitamins and you will never go wrong.” That is one of his quotes.
As Hollywood Hogan: “Blood is thicker than new blood… dude.”
“Whatcha gonna do when the Hulkster runs wild on you?”
These are some of his phrases. I’ll tell you…
“This is where the power lies.”
I’m sorry. I’m just reading these things off different things on Google here.
Not only is the Hulkster sporting an artificial hip from a surgery years ago, I didn’t know that, he had a hip surgery, that’s too bad, at this point his body has been worked on more than Frankenstein. Knees, legs, arm, shoulders, hips and neck. Nearly every part of his body has been sliced open, tweaked and stitched up.
As recently as last month, he was given the go ahead by doctors for an important and necessary back surgery. Doctors initially feared that his heart displayed signs of potential problems, but in recent tests, the 57-year-old performer proved to be in perfect condition for the suggested surgery.
A little bit about Hulk Hogan. He is a 12-time world champion, being a 6-time WWE, WWF Champion, 6-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion. He is the second longest combined reigning WWF Champion of all time, after Bruno Sammartino, the longest-reigning champion of the 1980s, and holds two of the ten longest title runs in WWE, WWF history, having held the title for 1,474 days from 1984 to 1988 and the fourth longest reign of all time and 364 days from 1989 to 1990, the 9th longest reign of all time.
He is also the longest-reigning WCW World Heavyweight Champion of all time, with a 469 day reign from 1994 to 1995. Hogan won the Royal Rumble in 1990 and 1991, making him the first man to win two consecutive Royal Rumbles.
He is one of the greatest, most popular, most hated and charismatic wrestlers of all time. Hulk Hogan is one of the men who helped parlay the circus-like world of professional wrestling from cult following into the forefront of American entertainment. What many people who know about Hogan don’t know is that he was in the sport for several years in virtual obscurity, which is like he wasn’t even noticed by anybody before hitting the big time.
Hogan made his pro debut in 1978, I was not even born, and wrestled as Sterling Golden before becoming Hulk Hogan. Was getting main event matches from wrestling in the American Wrestling Alliance, AWA in the early 1980s before he was cast as Thunderlips in Rocky III in 1982, the year that I was born.
That bit of casting propelled Hogan into the spotlight. He was soon to enter the World Wrestling Federation, WWF in 1983. I was one. At the time, the WWF was just beginning to go from local television. They were based in the Northeast United States to national. And Hogan’s personality and some well-done marketing and public relations, plus the Wrestlemania series helped to transform not only the WWF, but wrestling into the big show it is today.
Hogan won the WWF title numerous times, and was credited with dealing André the Giant his first loss in pro wrestling. Hogan was soon seen everywhere; television, cartoons, movies, records and lunch boxes, I think I had a lunch box, but he was a part of a steroid scandal in the WWF and quietly left the organization.
Hogan laid low in wrestling circles, but continued to act before coming back, this time with World Champion Wrestling WCW instead, of which is their rival.
Hogan helped create the New World Order–NWO, I remember that. The main bunch of bad men in WCW, and became more popular than ever. He abandoned his trademark red and yellow colors for black, and even dyed his hair and beard black.
He still wrestles as of today, and, like it or not, is probably one of the best entertainers in any form of show business. He always puts on a show.
But, anyway, we already know about what he can do, his acting and of his items he sells and everything. Now we’re going to talk about his divorce. Among the big-dollar items.
Linda, who is 52 now, Linda is Bollea, Linda Bollea, B-O-L-L-E-A.
Linda is 52, received a little more than 70 percent of the couple’s liquid assets, plus 40 percent ownership in the semi-retired wrestler’s companies and a $3 million property settlement.
That breakdown of liquid assets meant Linda walked with $7.44 million, and Hogan only took away $2.97 million. But Hogan, 58, real name is Terry Bollea, by the way, owes no alimony. Which is nice.
The couple still is in the process of selling property, including the mansion listed at $8.87 million. Linda also hangs onto a Mercedes-Benz, a Cadillac Escalade, a Corvette, a Rolls-Royce and various off-road vehicles. But Hogan keeps the rest of his considerable collection of cars. I wonder how many he’s got.
So now we’re going to find out all the juicy stuff, right? Of course, him being popular and everything, there has to be a fine line, something going on. He had to do something crazy. That would be a sex tape. Yes. Another celebrity with a sex tape.
I’ve never actually sat and found one of these and watched them. But I keep hearing about all these ones. Kim Kardashian. Who else is another one that came out with one? Pamela Anderson. And many other ones.
But anyway, we’re talking about the Hogans. Linda Hogan has spoken out about the sex tape featuring her ex-husband, Hulk Hogan, and another woman, a clip of which hit the internet earlier. You can find that out. I think it was October of last year.
During a visit to Access Hollywood Live on Monday, Linda said she was hurt but not surprised to learn Hulk stepped out on their marriage. In quotations, “It really is quite an embarrassment for our family. I’m a little devastated, but I’m not really shocked. I knew that he was having affairs. I just knew he was cheating. I just knew what was going on.”
She did not know who the girl was. She did watch the tape, however, to make sure it did or did not take place during the marriage. She said she’d like to add “I’m just glad to be away from that and moving on, doing all sorts of fun stuff now.” So this is good stuff, I guess.
So I don’t know a whole lot about the actual divorce, as in like what went wrong, apparently. They always looked happy even on their TV show, as far as I know. Brooke Hogan, she’s gorgeous, his daughter. She’s just beautiful. A product of both of them, obviously.
Obviously it just didn’t work out. It sucks for Hulk because he got murdered on the whole settlement part. Wow.
When I look at this. 40 percent ownership of the wrestler’s companies and $3 million of property settlement. I mean that’s just crazy. So right now $7.44 and they don’t know exactly what’s going on with the $8.87 million house they own. So obviously whatever happens from that, that’s going to go that way too.
I guess my question is, it is really worth it to cheat and to record everything? Because you know that no matter what you do, especially now with how viral everything is with the internet or especially when you break it down more than that. If you want to go specific sites like Facebook, Twitter, Vimeo, a million different things. Snapchat and there’s a ton of other ones I’m not going to go into. Skype. There’s another one I guess.
But there’s nothing you can keep quiet. Especially if you’re someone major like him. Like that name Hulk. Of course, you also have The Incredible Hulk. But Hulk Hogan. Everyone knows who that is, as soon as you see him.
I know he owns a restaurant in TampaBay right now also. I don’t know how that’s really going. Maybe it will be pretty popular. I would go just to get my little Hulk Hogan plush doll signed by him, you know I don’t know. These people just crack me up.
Watching these TV shows… now watching something with Hulk in it. Wow, I can’t actually believe this is good material when I was growing up. Now I just can’t believe the garbage that they put together. But I don’t know.
We’re all into it. Everybody loved it. A bunch of friends, we all play-wrestled. I had all the action figures. I had his. I think his had a throne action, if I’m not wrong. I can’t remember. He had different things going on.
He went through a super-patriotic phase. I remember that. And I do remember when he went to NWL when he dyed everything black. It was really awkward.
But he was the bomb with WWF. We lost so many of those guys like the British Bulldog. He died. Ultimate Warrior. He died. These are in real life, too. André the Giant. He died. Macho Man died. And I don’t know what ever happened to Bam Bam Bigelow and these other people. Owen Hart. Bret Hart. Shawn Michaels. Jake the Snake.
I don’t know. It’s sad that these guys… they make so much money for it to mainly be fake. But they do go through wrestling most of their lives to know the actual moves and everything. And they have gone through real fights and stuff. The when it comes to this, you know. It’s fake, basically and they make millions and millions of dollars off it.
I know a lot of people that still buy stuff like that. Shirts out, still. Facebook statuses. Tweets and everything. And still going out with Hulk Hogan.
But now he’s broke. So he’d better get back in doing something. But I’m sure I’ll see him in more of these TV shows or something like that. Maybe come up with his own.
Or maybe Brooke will hit it big. That’s his daughter. She could help him out. Have him living at home. Imagine that. Having a successful retired wrestler, Hulk Hogan, living in your basement. Helping you pay rent because he went broke. He makes a sex tape or not being committed to his wife while dating her.
I can’t even look her up. I can’t even find much about his wife. There’s like nothing about her at all. Like Linda. Where does she come from? I don’t even know. I can’t even find her success story. I guess I’m a horrible person. I can’t even find like where they even met. Usually I can. But there’s just… I don’t know.
But now she’s rich. And he’s…well, I wouldn’t say he’s broke. But by the time they split, I’m saying he’ll probably get eight something million all together he’ll have. But to make all that money that he has and do all that he has been doing for so long, now to not have anything at all, it’s just kind of crazy.
Maybe his restaurant will pick up. I’m still trying to check it out. Maybe I’ll win the Mega or the Powerball ticket. So when I do, I will decide to drive out there or fly out to Florida and go to his restaurant. Hopefully he’s there serving. Maybe he’s like Rocky and you know, Rocky movie when he came out with the last one, he had the restaurant and he was serving. I have no idea. Hulk Hogan man, he came a long way. Gold shiny belt. We always wanted to be like you man. Now, we turn, we can’t even look up to you. Going bald and everything. Shirts, I don’t know. I wonder how many shirts he has left in his closet. I don’t know if that’s like his every day thing, like a thousand of these red shirts and orange shirts. I don’t know.
But that’s all I have for you this week for celebrity divorce gore. Basically telling you that Hulk Hogan is broke and his wife Linda who is 52 years old received almost all of it and she walked away with 7.44 million which is almost as much as their house costs. So Hulk Hogan, maybe you’ll learn next time, that not, first of all, cheat, stay committed to your wife or girlfriend and let’s not do anything on a phone or a camcorder because somebody else will get their hands on it. Until next time. Take care.
