Did you know......... Hulk Hogan

Post by Big Bad Booty Daddy » Apr 16th, '14, 03:56

Did you know that years ago, Hulk Hogan missed a call off his agent to sponsor a new indoor grill. His agent then gave it to George Forman (who was also one of his clients).

George Forman has made nearly $500 million off marketing the grill.

Makes you wonder if it would have been as successful had Hogan taken the deal...

I didn't know he missed the call! But I did know he was their first choice, I just thought he passed.

I didn't believe this at first, but it makes perfect sense. 94 was that year Hogan seemed to be looking for a way out of wrestling for good; BAD decision passing this up tho. Maybe not; his Ex Wife woulda still prolly taken half the money....
