In other "B-list celebrities who've decided against running for public office" news, Hulk Hogan (born Terry Bollea) just added his name to the "no" column - for now. Hogan, who now lives in Clearwater, told TMZ that if he did indeed run, he would run as a Republican and he would probably win.
"At the end of the day, I'm just so confused because it's like watching the politicians - the Democrats and the Republicans - it's like nobody wants to work together", said Hogan, who was banished from the WWE in 2015 after audio was released in which he could be heard using racial slurs to describe a man his daughter was dating at the time. It's like a wrestling match, with two wrestlers that are supposed to work together and paint this handsome wrestling picture. It's something he says doesn't interest him, but the Clearwater Beach resident made it clear to TMZ that could change.
Rumors of Hogan's candidacy were reignited earlier this week after Donald Trump's former adviser Roger Stone announced he was attempting to convince the WWE star to vie for Democratic Sen. I disagree - it would be a SWEET BEAUTIFUL WALK IN THE PARK to get elected, Hulk Hogan in Florida, are you kidding me, I'm a little anxious that even mentioning the phrase makes it somehow legal by Florida law. "I think the first thing he'd do to stir the pot is to get back in the ring".More news: Poll schedule announced for Tripura, Meghalaya and Nagaland
Hogan said he viewed the case as about protecting his right to privacy.
"I don't want that reality stuff ever in my house again", Hogan said.
Hogan's relationship with WWE was estranged after he was caught making racist comments in a private video. I think that I'm part of that company from the ground up.
