Hulk Hogan wrestles with children!


Hulk trains little people in "Micro Wrestling"
The great Hulk Hogan
The Icon of wresling and one of the greatest wrestlers of all time Hulk Hogan has set to train little people to wrestle. A recent news from his Atorney confirmed this. According to Radar Online, Hulk Hogan is developing a reality show for TRU TV tentatively called "Micro Wrestling,"
which sees him train and mentor little people to become wrestlers.

A spokesperson for the cable channel confirmed the report by RadarOnline, which quoted the 57-year-old wrestling star's lawyer as saying the series "will explore the fascinating world of wrestling on the scale of little people."

The lawyer also says, "It will show their extraordinary physical capabilities and the true strength of people of that stature. He's the guy who inspires, recruits, trains and mentors them. He's been involved in every step - only this time it's on a smaller scale."

Earlier this month, footage of one of the group's wrestling events in Cookeville, Tennessee, which featured Hogan and MCW "Superstars," was filmed for the truTV reality show, the Cookeville Timesreported.

Hogan appeared on the VH1 reality show "Hogan Knows Best" with his family between 2005 --- 2007. He also starred in his daughter Brooke Hogan's spinoff series, "Brooke Knows Best" in 2008 and appeared alongside comedian and recently ousted Aflac spokesperson Gilbert Gottfried on the reality show "The Great Debate" in 2009.

In December, Hogan underwent back surgery, just days after his wedding to second wife Jennifer McDaniel. 

Last month, Hogan returned to reality television by making a cameo on "American Idol" On the March 24 episode, he appeared to shock contestant James Durbin, a wrestling fan. Earlier this week, Hogan Tweeted his support for the "American Idol" hopeful.

About Hulk Hogan

Terry Gene Bollea, better known by his ring name Hulk Hogan, is an American professional wrestler, actor, television personality, and musician currently signed to Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA). He is regarded by some as the greatest professional wrestler of all time. Bollea who is of French, Italian and Panamanian herritage is the son of Peter Bollea, a construction foreman, and his wife Ruth, a homemaker and dance teacher, Hogan was raised in Tampa, Florida. As a boy, he was a pitcher in Little League Baseball. He began watching professional wrestling at 16 years old. What many people who know about Hogan don't know is he was in the "sport" for several years in virtual obscurity before hitting the big time. Hogan made his pro debut in 1978 and wrestled as "Sterling Golden" before becoming "Hulk."Hogan was getting main event matches while wrestling in the American Wrestling Alliance (AWA) in the 
early 1980s before he was cast as Thunderlips in Rocky III (1982). That bitof casting propelled Hogan into the spotlight and he was soon to enter the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) in 1983.  Hogan was also a skilled musician, spending ten years playing bass guitar in several Florida-based rock bands.

He is a 12-time world heavyweight champion being a six-time WWF/E Champion and a six-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion, as well as a former WWE World Tag Team Champion with Edge. He was also the winner of the Royal Rumble in 1990 and 1991 and the first to win two Royal Rumbles in a row. In his first reign as WCW World Heavyweight Champion, Hogan held the title for 469 days from July 17, 1994 to October 29, 1995. It is the longest reign of all time for this championship.
