Hulk Hogan Coming to Toronto; Kills Rumor on Movie About His Life, Speaks on Fans Cheering Him Over Rock

Mike Killam

WWE Hall of Famer and current TNA general manager Hulk Hogan promoted his upcoming visit to Toronto for Fan Expo Canada on August 23rd and 24th with a Q&A on

On his favorite matches and moments wrestling in Canada: 

"…the other big one that really blew me away was when I wrestled the Rock. He was at the height of his popularity. I was coming to work after working for Ted Turner for nine years, so I wasn’t the most popular guy on the block. So I did the bad-guy thing. I did everything I could to be the most evil person ever. I hit the Rock in the head with a hammer, I put him in an ambulance, I put chains around the doors. I actually got in an 18-wheeler – a semi-truck – and ran the ambulance over, and I went to the Sky Dome and they booed him out of the building and they cheered me like I was up in the clouds somewhere. The fans just made a statement that ’You can’t tell us who to like.’"

On the current rumor that a feature film was in the works about his life and career as a professional wrestler for the last several decades. 

"It’s not really true. It’s a TMZ headline. What happened was, I was going through LaGuardia Airport … this guy asked me a bunch of dumb questions for TMZ and he goes, ’Eh, when are they going to do a bio about your life?’ And I said, ’It’s already in development.’ So now everybody’s rambling like it’s a feature film already. But the truth is, two kids that are writers in L.A. – hot young writers – they did a four-page treatment and I’m telling you they nailed it. They nailed it like they were living in my shoes, and I gave them the green light to go ahead and write the first pass. But that’s all it is."
