Hulk Hogan: Train, Say Your Prayers And Drink Your Xanax Cocktails?
Funny, that’s not how I remember the Hulkster’s message to all the little Hulkamaniacs running wild out there going, but apparently, an ugly divorce and dating women who look like your daughter can do strange things to people.
Apparently, the Hulkster, after polishing off a tasty Xanax and rum beverage, almost offed himself. He had the gun loaded and everything, brothers. Thankfully, a random telephone call from Laila Ali stopped him from doing the unspeakable act. From the KC Star (via With Leather):
Hogan describes his depression after breaking up with his wife of 23 years, Linda, and coping with his son Nick’s car accident that left a friend of the younger Hogan brain-injured.
One night, after downing a cocktail of Xanax and rum, he had his finger on the trigger of a loaded gun when Ali, who was his co-star then on “American Gladiators,” called. He recalls that she commented on how distracted he had seemed at work.
Hogan says that phone call saved his life. But on Wednesday, Ali told “Access Hollywood” that this was the first time she was hearing Hogan’s story.
Huh. So, Ali doesn’t remember the phone call. Perhaps it was just a mixup and Hulk was actually talking to rapper Brother Ali. Hey, stranger things have happened.
