Hulk Hogan Responds to Gay Allegation
October 13, 2011
Wrestling legend Hulk Hogan opens up to The Insider's Christina McLarty about his scaled back life following a bitter divorce and responds to a claim by his ex wife Linda that he had a gay affair.
Hogan calls an allegation made by his ex-wife that he had a gay affair with another professional wrestler "mean-spirited" and "a blatant lie."
"I've got friends, a couple of my best friends in this business -- and I'm not going to say who they are -- are gay guys, and they're really close friends. So you know, if I was gay -- if I was a homosexual or a lesbian or transsexual or whatever I was -- people know I'd probably pretty much tell you right off the bat."
Hogan, 58, admits his life is different now since his headline-grabbing divorce from Linda and he says he's scaled back financially in the wake of the split. But he said he feels great and reveals his secret to staying fit is being married to his gorgeous 36-year-old wife, Jennifer McDaniel.
Hogan -- whose name has been synonymous with professional wrestling for decades -- is set to step into the ring again this weekend during what he's describing as the Super Bowl of wrestling, the TNA's Bound for Glory Pay-Per-View event, this Sunday in Philadelphia. In the ring, he'll face longtime wrestler Sting in a match he says will be more brawl than wrestling.
For a regular dose of wrestling's biggest stars in action, you can catch TNA's Impact Wrestling Thursday nights at 9 p.m. on Spike TV.
