Yesterday, news broke that WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan was involved in an altercation with a fan. The incident took place at a hotel where Hogan and Ric Flair were staying. A video of the incident went viral, and Hogan went on his Facebook page to explain what happened.
Below is the text if you're unable to watch the video on mobile thanks to WrestlingInc.
Hogan met up with Ric Flair for a drink, and heard that the bar was calm, but instead, fans were there with their phones out once they saw Flair and Hogan.
"He wanted to have one drink—before the chaos started—so, we went to a little booth back there and the people kept coming up. Flair is a heel in the ring, so he was acting like a heel and running people off so we can have at least one drink. This one guy came over and he was drunk on his ass. He had about four guys with him. They all looked like 40-45 year old guys. They were all over six feet tall, bunch of ranging looking spoons. Flair runs him off, next thing you know he sends over two Shirley Temples for me and Flair. Saying we're a bunch of p---ies.
On the way out—what doesn't show on the video—the guy that Flair ran off that was really drunk goes, 'Hey Hogan, you're a f---ing d--k!' Usually I keep going, but for some reason I just stopped dead in my tracks. I turned around and look at him, and the only I could think to say was the line Flair dropped.
I said, 'Well, brother, I dare you to come outside and say this to my face' I don't know if the video showed this. What the guys didn't know is Brian Kendrick and a lot of the WWE and NXT guys—there's this crazy bond, there's this loyalty thing—so, if you get into fight with a wrestler at a bar, you better make sure there are no other wrestlers around. As I'm arguing with the guy, I notice Brian Kendrick circling the wagons, I see all the other guys 'in position' and I go, 'Oh my God, this could get crazy.' But that's all that happened and I went up to the room."
