Hulk Hogan Launches Reality Wrestling Show
Wrestling icon Hulk Hogan has landed a new reality show. Hogan, real name Terrance Bollea, is set to launch his latest TV venture, upcoming program "Hulk Hogan's Micro Championship Wrestling," on network TruTV on Wednesday.
The show will chronicle the lives of a group of little wrestlers based in Florida, as Hogan helps them elevate their skills to match the successes of their larger counterparts.
He tells gossip blog PerezHilton.com, "I spent 20 years around (7-foot, 4-inch) Andre the Giant and he couldn't sit in a first class seat (on an airplane). People would walk behind him in the airport and you'd hear comments. They'd say cruel things.
"(But) in these guys' cases, you might see one go into a hotel lobby front desk and the clerk can't see them. I'm trying to get them to function on a higher level. How to handle themselves in the ring, being more professional and, basically, reinventing yourself. We get to see how they handle normal-sized doors and cars, as well as watching them deal with their wives or helping their kids doing their homework."
