Date Set For Hogan Divorce Proceedings, Big Scene In Court

Matt Boone

The following are excerpts from an article in The Tampa Tribune:

"Judge George Greer is giving Hulk Hogan $225,000 a month for the next three months. The hearing was over, the drama wasn’t.

With TV cameras rolling, Hulk got into a shouting match and ultimately squared off with Linda Bollea’s lawyer, Ray Rafool.

"Are you gonna wrestle me?" the lawyer asked Hogan. Rafool weighs 205 pounds. Hogan goes about 300.

They separated on their own, but a second bailiff came into the court to demand decorum.

Update: Hulk Hogan is on the stand talking about his expenses. He came to the stand slowly on his crutches and told the court he has been unable to get work recently. Hulk had back surgery last month."

And here’s an updated excerpt from the same website:

"At a hearing today, lawyers for Hulk Hogan and his wife, Linda Bollea, agreed on a trial date for their divorce.

The trial was set for Oct. 5 through 23.

The lawyers are already arguing, though, about how much money should be freed up from the parties’ frozen accounts.

Hulk Hogan has asked for $300,000 per month to pay expenses.

Linda Bollea’s lawyer says that Hulk’s spending needs to be restricted to $40,000 per month."
