Hulk Hogan Says He's Not Gay, and Didn't Cheat on His Wife with Wrestler 'Brutus Beefcake': VIDEO

Hulk Hogan has filed a defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife Linda Bollea over various claims, including one that he cheated on her with fellow wrestler Brutus Beefcake, Us Weekly reports:

The wrestling icon, 58, (real name: Terry Bollea) filed an 18-page lawsuit in Clearwater, Fla. on Thursday accusing his ex, 52, of defamation, the St. Petersburg Times reports.

In her memoir Wrestling the Hulk: My Life Against the Ropes, Linda writes of harrowing physical, mental and emotional abuse at the hands of her husband during their 24-year marriage...

During radio interviews promoting the tome, Linda also accused her former spouse of cheating on her with another male wrestler, Brutus Beefcake.

Linda's claims, Hulk's lawsuit says, have "exposed him to distrust, hatred, contempt and ridicule."

Said Hogan:

"After the four-year crazy divorce I thought I'd heard everything I could hear in the courtroom. Then, all of a sudden she says I abused her, that I was violent. She told everybody that I was a homosexual...If any of that was true, I would admit it, and (if) I was a homosexual I would embrace it. It's just so crazy to hear, so I have a real problem with it... If you're going to say I'm something that I'm not to try to ruin my career and my livelihood... I have to answer her back. It's so ridiculous. I don't mean to laugh about it, because it's not funny. But it's insane. It doesn't make any sense to me."

  3. I know several people who have met the man, and ALL of them have said he's super nice and very gay-friendly. It's kinda a shame that his ex-wife is acting like this. Sad old woman.

  4. Well, given how batsh*t crazy his ex-wife seems to be, I'm betting that at this point he really does wish he were gay. Would've saved him the hell she's putting him through. Besides, who wouldn't want to have some of that beefcake?

  5. "if I was a homosexual I would embrace it"

    What a great quote from a great American.

    From everything I've seen and read, I have to believe that Hulk is 100% straight and thus completely at ease w/ his sexuality.

  6. He should have just let this one go. No on really paid much attention to it at the time, but now it's suddenly news again. Aside from this story, however, there is a lot of anecdotal evidence that there exists or existed a long-standing gay subculture in the professional wrestling world - especially on the road.

  7. I've been told by very long term fans of the sport that in the early days the producers would essentially force wrestlers into gay relationships to get work (they weren't not treated or paid at all well). It apparently wasn't so much prostitution or porn as it was the personal vanity of the promoters. I think there was even a 60 Minutes expose on this back in the early 1980's.

  9. What is gay sex? Are two guys beating off together watching straight porn, gay?? I think about 70% of guys would get interested in another guy reaching climax. There's something about a male in the climax of sexual passion that is simply riveting and amazing. Period. I've known straight guys who just love the energy of another getting off. About 1/3 of guys are turned off by anything that has to do with another guy sexually. These are the arrogant "la crosse" who are programmed to be disgusted by another guy's junk, etc. But the simple fact is that the majority of straight males do not have this visceral repulsive feeling about another males genitals/body. Most men are neutral, but when they see a sexually excited male, it has an energizing --if not lustful-- effect on the average straight male.

  10. I hope he wins, wife sounds a little off.

  11. There is nothing gay about pro-wrestling on the other had the Hulkster is making those commercial with Troy (I'm not gay) Aikman...

  12. He couldn't have given a better response to this. Instead of claiming the whole "Oh no, I am not gay! I've been with millions of women and I am NOT a homosexual" spiel that implies there is something wrong with being homosexual, he is being both gay-affirming and reasserting his own heterosexuality. I could care a less if he's gay or not. He's obviously an ally.

  16. Gotta tell you my friend the athletic director at a private school chuckles that basically all of the wrestlers are gay. More and more are coming out gradually, but usually after they finish wrestling. And Pro wrestling is basically soft core gay porn. And neglected wives can go off the rails. And outings are so rarely false. I don't know... this is quite possibly true. It's enough to doubt that he's in the half of men with zero same gender desire.

  17. Someone should explain to the gentleman to the left of Mr. Hogan in the photo that trimming one's nasal hair with hedge clippers is not a very good idea . . .

  18. I think Hogan knows any news is good news for anything he's still selling, and frankly it makes him look good.

    Still, he wouldn't be the first straight guy to mess around with another man once in a while.

  19. Terry (Hulk Hogan) used to play Bass in the house band at Anchor Club in Cocoa Beach in the 70s and the rumor was he was gay back then so the news did not surprise me.
