Hulk Hogan Is Delusional

Justin LaBar

My Friday column for the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review talks about Hulk Hogan making headlines lately with his quotes towards Brock Lesnar.

The following is an excerpt:

Hulk, you win, I’ll give you the attention you want because this is all too funny to resist.

Hulk Hogan has been on WWE programming lately in his ambassador role. Two weeks ago on Monday Night RAW, a birthday celebration was thrown for Hogan in which WWE had Brock Lesnar crash the party. It made sense seeing as the company was six days from SummerSlam, and Lesnar was challenging for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

Lesnar went to SummerSlam and won the title in one of the most brutal professional wrestling matches I’ve ever seen. Hogan’s been telling TMZ and other media outlets that he’s upset because when Lesnar crashed his party, he broke script by grabbing the microphone and saying, “Party’s over grandpa.”

Yes, he called Hogan a grandpa. Hogan is above the age of 60 and has looked like it since he was 35.

Hogan is now telling anyone who will listen that if Lesnar gets in his way, there is going to be trouble. He’s also telling anyone listening that he can do one more match.

The comedy in this is tremendous. Hogan will never shy away from a potential payday. Let’s hope that’s what he’s trying for and not a true fight.

If Hogan thought challenging The Pope could possibly be booked for a pay-per-view main event, you better believe he would be cutting promos in Italy.

Hogan’s rants are either a shoot and he’s delusional, or are a work and he’s delusional.

Hogan’s physical health seems like it would struggle to put on a Hogan work-rate level match against Heath Slater. No offense, Heath.
