On page 78 of the August edition of Maxim, there is an interview with Hulk Hogan. It is pretty much everything we have heard Hogan say lately such as to the question “What about your daughter, Brooke-what if she wanted to date a wrestler” Hogan’s response is “That’d be my worst nightmare” Although I am not a fan of Hogan at all, I did find it interesting and worth a look.

Over at Richmond.com features a peace which talks about local residents that are famous. The article has a bit about former WWE ref Earl Hebner, which said, “As the WWE’s senior referee for many moons, Hebner has done us all proud. He’s watched over ladies wrestling in Jello. He’s overseen coffin matches. He’s taken many phantom blows into a turnbuckle. And he’s done it all dressed like a Foot Locker employee.”
