Hogan’s Price Drops, Austin Note, & More

Ryan Clark


What a bargain. Professional wrestler Hulk Hogan, who listed his Tampa home last year for $25 million before taking it off the market, has changed his mind again and listed it for $17.9 million, 28 percent off the initial price. The 53-year-old wrestler and his wife, Linda, bought the property 15 years ago for $2 million and tore down the existing Spanish-style house to build the five-bedroom, 17,000-square-foot house, designed to look like a French chateau. The VH1 reality series Hogan Knows Best showed the family living in the home with more than two dozen pets, including dogs, cats and a rooster. In later episodes, the family moved to a waterfront Miami Beach house they bought for $12 million in April.

Vinny Jones of “The Condemned,” who appeared on the No Way Out PPV, did a guest spot at WWE’s Capital Carnage U.K. PPV eight years ago. Jones is a former British soccer star.

WWE did 5,442,000 PPV world wide buys for the 16 pay-per-views the company promoted in 2006. By comparison, UFC did 5,225,000 domestic PPV buys for the ten shows the MMA group produced. (The early projections for UFC 67 have the PPV doing between 350,000 to 400,000 buys).
