Hulk Hogan retweets follower who says he ‘went ballsdeep on Brooke’ Hogan

Among the thousands of Twitter users in the world who spend their lives hoping their favorite athlete or celebrity will give them a retweet, very few believe that retweet is going to come in the form of an insult. Unless the person you are following has a great sense of humor, they’re more likely to block you than retweet something negative you said about them. Then there’s Hulk Hogan.

Not only did Terry “The Hulk” retweet a person who didn’t have anything nice to say on Friday, he retweeted someone who was talking about doing his daughter. Here is the tweet that Hogan decided to pass along to his nearly 350,000 followers:

As Deadspin mentioned, perhaps Hogan is unaware of what the phrase “balls deep” means. Either that or he’s mad at Brooke. Either that or he’s trying to be cool about it. Either that or it’s complete sarcasm. Either that or he’s officially lost his mind.

WWE star Chris Jericho suspended for crumpling the Brazilian flag (Video)

WWE superstars are entertainers above all else. Yes, wrestling hurts sometimes. In certain ways it is “real,” but we all know the goal of the WWE and other organizations like it. In order to achieve the best ratings possible, the WWE needs villains and it needs heroes. During an event in Brazil on Thursday night, longtime wrestler Chris Jericho took playing the role of the bad guy a bit too far.

According to TMZ, Jericho has been suspended indefinitely by the WWE for desecrating the Brazilian flag before a match against C.M. Punk. Punk entered the ring waving the flag, and as you can see in the video above Jericho followed by crumpling it and kicking it out of the ring. Desecrating the national flag is a crime in Brazil, so law enforcement officials stopped the match and threatened to arrest Jericho if he did not apologize. He took the mic and apologized to the audience and the event continued. The WWE released the following statement regarding the incident:

Azerbaijan’s wrestling team smells awful, uses Febreze (Video)

In case you were dying for proof that Febreze could eliminate the grimiest of stenches, here is Azerbaijan’s wrestling team dousing all of its equipment with the product after working up a massive sweat to make themselves extra musty.

Blindfolded people were then brought in to see if they could decipher what they were smelling. That the people were making guesses such as “potpourri factory,” “a field with a picnic” and “passionfruit” while their faces were nearly buried in shoes, head gear and wrestling leotards (sadly, no cups) makes this video extra delightful. Imagine their amusement when they took off their blindfolds to see they weren’t in a field of flowers but rather a dingy gym with a bunch of sweaty, smelly wrestlers.

As for the members of the Azerbaijani wrestling team, they’ve probably just been outed as the smelliest bros competing at Olympics this summer. Smelly, but hopefully at least stylish.

Rulon Gardner skips weigh-in, ends Olympics wrestling comeback attempt

Rulon Gardner’s attempt to make the Olympics wrestling team came to an end on Friday when he skipped the weigh-in because he knew he was over the weight limit.

Gardner needed to weigh less than 264.5 pounds to make the heavyweight limit at the U.S. Olympic Wrestling Trials in Iowa City, Iowa, but the 40-year-old didn’t step on the scale.

Gardner told the LA Times on Thursday that he weighed about 280 pounds, meaning he would have needed to lose about 15 pounds to make weight. The Colorado Springs Gazette reported that he was about five pounds over the limit on Friday.

Gardner ballooned to 474 pounds when he appeared on the weight-loss show “The Biggest Loser” last year. He lost nearly 200 pounds on the show, but left abruptly before its completion to begin his wrestling comeback.

Scott Hall arrested for allegedly choking out girlfriend in drunken rage

The problems for Scott Hall continue. Hall reportedly was arrested Friday for allegedly attacking his girlfriend in a drunken rage.

TMZ obtained the police report and says cops were called to Hall’s Florida home. Hall’s girlfriend, Lisa Howell, apparently claimed Hall was drinking for days and the two got into an argument. Howell got into her car and was pulled out by Hall who grabbed her by her neck.

Police noticed red marks around Howell’s neck so they arrested Hall for domestic violence. He denied ever getting violent, but he was so drunk, the jail refused to book him until he got medical clearance from a hospital.

TMZ also says Hall, who is listed at 6’7″ and 287 pounds, required two sets of handcuffs.

Hall, who became famous for his career as Razor Ramon, had his troubled post-career life chronicled by E:60. We’re equally surprised he’s still alive and that he actually has a girlfriend.

Brock Lesnar reportedly signs with WWE

With his MMA career seemingly over, Brock Lesnar is apparently returning to his wrestling roots.

Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer reported that Lesnar is in Miami for WrestleMania 28 and that he has signed a one-year contract with the WWE.

“Lesnar has arrived in Miami [site of tomorrow's event] and arrived with security and a large group of people shielding him from everyone,” Meltzer wrote Saturday, per 5th Round.com. “This is the going story, but not confirmed, that Lesnar has signed a one year deal and will work a more than Undertaker and less than Goldberg type of schedule.”

Lesnar is still under contract with the UFC, but Ariel Helwani reports that president Dana White would not have a problem with it if Lesnar did sign with the WWE. Rumors of Lesnar’s return to the wrestling ring have swirled since the Undertaker showed up at UFC 121 to watch Brock’s loss to Cain Velasquez. As of last October, Lesnar said he believed he’d eventually return to the WWE.

Lesnar’s MMA career took a major hit when he became afflicted with diverticulitis and required intestinal surgery. He had lost his last two fights and said after his defeat to Alistair Overeem that he was retiring from the octagon.

Hulk Hogan sex tape being shopped, could be ultimate Hulkamaniac souvenir

One of the best parts about doing this job is waking up each day and never knowing what kind of stories you’ll end up writing about. Did I get out of bed today knowing I would be writing about a Hulk Hogan sex tape being shopped? Heck no. But twists like that are the perks of the job.

TMZ reported Wednesday that someone is shopping a Hulk Hogan sex tape to different adult video production companies. The details of said tape are tremendous. According to Thirty Mile Zone:

“In the clip, Hulk pulls his shirt off and brags to his companion, ‘I started to work out again.’ Hulk then runs his hands through his blonde hair like he always does.”

“The best part … Hulk’s thong-shaped tan line.”

Tell me what Hulkamaniac wouldn’t throw down a clean $20 to watch that beauty?

Of course matters involving sex tapes do not come without complication; Hulk says the tape was filmed without his permission, and he’s hired a lawyer to attack the person shopping the video. Sex tapes are generally great publicity for fading careers, so I’m not sure why Hulk opposes this, unless he’s just trying to keep the world from seeing his thong-shaped tan line, which is pretty understandable.
