Hulk Hogan is coming clean with his uncleanliness, again, after his original coming out party that was part of his autobiography back in late 2002, Hollywood Hulk Hogan.
In doing so, he's speaking out against the steroid scourge that has been pummeling the sport of professional wrestling recently after the Chris Beniot family murder/suicide mess. He was recently quoted on the U.K. website The Sun Online:
"Are steroids a problem in wrestling? Oh God yeah. They have always been a part of the business. It's prevalent. But there's not some big mystery to it. Just open your eyes and it's there. You can look at a wrestler and pretty much tell. They will be above their weight range, with these big veins. My body weight is around 285lb, depending on how much junk I eat. Even if I was 25 and clean, I could probably only carry 300lb. Yet when I was wrestling I weighed anywhere between 320 and 340lb, because my body was full of water weight. My face was puffy, my arms were so bulky I couldn't touch my shoulders. You could take one look at me and know I was on something."Nah? Say it ain't so, again. Hulk Hogan took enhancements? Absurd, again. I couldn't be more shocked. Sure, I bet you're gonna tell me that's not his true natural olive skin and he fake-bakes. Craziness.
I'm glad Mr. Hogan was able to clarify weight, water, and the public's ignorance and inability recognize 'steroiders'. His dive into this frey shouldn't be suspicious, as the 52-year-old has publicly pronounced his fitness and willingness to jump back into the WWE ring. What better publicity to ride?
