WWE Legend Hulk Hogan Claims He was Almost Murdered In Puerto Rico

10 months ago By Jhon Woug

The Hulkster is the biggest legend the sport has ever seen. Together, he and Vince McMahon sold out arena after arena in the days of no internet. In a recent extensive interview on The Joe Rogan Show, iconic wrestler Hulk Hogan sat down to discuss a wide array of topics, ranging from his illustrious wrestling career to his CBD line promotion. The interview provided a rare glimpse into the grittier side of the wrestling world, revealing shocking stories involving some of the industry’s most legendary figures.

During the interview, Hogan recounted a tense encounter involving wrestling legend Harley Race. Hogan vividly described the situation when he came to Kansas City to promote a segment. Harley Race, a proud and established NWA champion, had a storied history in the area, and Hogan’s arrival as the WWF champion brought forth an intense clash of egos. As Hogan prepared for his appearance, he received a startling call from his team, informing him that Race had come to the arena armed with a gun and even attempted to set the ring on fire. The tension escalated as Race reportedly threatened to kill Hogan upon his arrival. Hogan recalled the gripping moment, revealing how he hastily finished using the bathroom, fearing a confrontation with his pants down. When he finally encountered Race face-to-face, a gun was pointed at him. However, the situation took an unexpected turn when Race admitted that he needed a job. Hogan’s admiration for Race and his understanding of the fierce competition among wrestlers ultimately led to a surprising handshake, diffusing the potentially lethal confrontation.

Another harrowing tale Hogan shared was his near-death experience in Puerto Rico. After a successful stadium event alongside Macho Man Randy Savage, Hogan returned to his hotel room to find it trashed. Alarmed, he decided to retreat to his own room, only to encounter an armed individual waiting for him. Hogan recounted the chilling moment when the person threatened his life and warned him never to return. This story took an even darker turn as Hogan linked it to the tragic fate of fellow wrestler Bruiser Brody, who was murdered in the Puerto Rico dressing room a few months later. Hogan’s chilling revelation painted a haunting picture of the volatile environment that some wrestlers faced during that era.

Hogan’s interview provided a stark reminder of the turbulent nature of the wrestling industry in its earlier days. The stories he shared shed light on the intense rivalries, backstage tensions, and personal vendettas that often played out behind the scenes. These revelations not only offered fans a deeper understanding of the challenges wrestlers encountered but also underscored the sacrifices they made to entertain audiences around the world.

As the interview concluded, Hogan’s candid storytelling left a lasting impact. The tales he shared served as a time capsule, transporting listeners to an era where the lines between scripted entertainment and personal conflicts were often blurred. Hogan’s willingness to recount these experiences demonstrated the resilience and camaraderie that also existed within the wrestling community, where even the fiercest adversaries could find common ground.

In the end, Hulk Hogan’s appearance on The Joe Rogan Show unveiled a side of wrestling rarely discussed on public platforms. The stories of confrontation, threat, and tragedy painted a raw and unfiltered portrait of an industry marked by passion, ambition, and the ever-present specter of danger. As the wrestling world continues to evolve, Hogan’s candid revelations serve as a reminder of the journey wrestlers have undertaken to create the spectacular spectacle that captures the hearts of fans worldwide.
