Funny bit from an interview with the Rock in Ireland's RTE Guide magazine.

Interviewer: Is it possible for you to have a normal life? I was in a movie queue in LA last week and happened to be standing behind one of your erstwhile adversaries, Hulk Hogan. He was mobbed by everyone who passed the line. Can you go out and do something as normal as shopping for groceries?

Rock: Not at all. My shopping is done on a consignment basis. But this life is what it is and I'm not complaining. The thing with Hogan ,and we've been friends a long time, is that he loves the attention. He doesn't hide when he's out there. What was he wearing when you met him?

Interviewer: Bright yellow bandanna, yellow sleeveless vest.

Rock: There you go! I remember walking to the airport with him and i was wearing long sleeves to cover the tattoos, a baseball cap, dark glasses and a Walkman. Not Hogan. He was wearing a white jacket with his picture printed on the back of it!

Doesn't Hulk always dress in full Hulkster regalia whenever he's out in public? I've always liked that about him.

Yeah, "Sex, Lies, and Headlocks" pointed out that he always travelled dressed in character. I'm not sure if I admire his dedication or find it a little sick.

Living in Tampa and having to see The Hulkster everywhere, let me go on record as voting for "a little sick."

I saw Hogan in a hotel back in 1999. I remember getting a kick out of his clothes, as he was wearing a do-rag (sp?), a WCW tank top, and SPANDEX PANTS WITH WEIGHTLIFTERS BELT!!! I just thought that was funny.



The answer to WWE's financial problems...

Never 'Wiener of the Day', and is actually quite bitter about it.

Yeah as a younger man, I saw Hogan arrive to the building in spandex as well. This was around 1991. I hope he washed it.

I'm lucky enough to live in the Tampa area. I think Hogan is more of a Jekyl/Hyde situation. I remember seeing him at a movie theatre bout a year ago. He was all decked out in yellow spandex and the like. I've also seen him at a restaurant I valet at. He always comes dressed in regular clothes for that. The restaurant doesn't require nice clothes or anything since it's located near the beach. If the Hulkster came in spandex, I know they'd let him in.

Way off topic, but that asshole Saggs from the Nasty Boyz stiffed me on the tip last week. The bastard was drunk and got ditched by his friends, but that's no reason no to tip the hard working valet, right?

In Nastyville they tip valets via Pit-stop. So consider yourself lucky.

I think Hogan is fabulous, I love how he embraces his gimmick and plays it to the max in public.

Nice idea, and I agree that's the way it has to play out, but the problem is that the writers always let the face win out in the end. It happens every time.
