Hulk Hogan : “I’m A Broken Down, Beat Up, Old Wrestler”

Published

Hulk Hogan

 

In 2008, the Hollywood was convinced beyond doubt that pro wrestling subject matter can make money in the box office.

 

 

Mickey Rourke and Marisa Tomei headed up that stellar cast which also included many names from pro wrestling. Hulk Hogan wasn’t a part of the film, but it wasn’t for lack of trying.

 

 

Eric Biscoff and Hulk Hogan speak

During an episode of 83 Weeks, Eric Bischoff revealed that the Aronofsky-helmed project made a play for Hulk Hogan. Below was what he said:

 

 

“Yeah, I met with Darren. Darren wanted to meet with me in New York about being in the movie as well. So, it’s not like, you know, Ernest ‘The Cat” Miller was in the movie for crying out loud. So, Darren reached out to a lot of people in the industry and early, [he] did reach out to Hulk.”

 

 

According to report, the scripts floating around for the wreswtler at that time were two different scripts. Bischoff is uncertain which version the Hulkster was sent, but he did receive one of the copies. Apparently, it wasn’t up to Hulk Hogan’s standards at the time.

“So, I think, you know, Terry [Hulk Hogan] probably looked at that script and went, ughh, ‘I don’t want to play a broken down, old, I’m a broken down, beat up, old wrestler, I don’t want to play one in a movie.’ He was trying to run away from the reality, not embrace it at that point. So, he did pass on it.”

 

 

The Wrestler would have been a much different movie if Hulk Hogan had been cast in a role. Hulk Hogan is getting his own biopic on Netflix starring Chris Hemsworth as The Hulkster. Hemsworth is also in jacked shape to play the part.

Eric Bischoff is also an executive producer on the upcoming Hulk Hogan biopic. He made it clear that they are still in their late production stages.
