American Gladiator host and Pro Wrestler, Hulk Hogan cannot wait for his son Nick’s early releasefrom jail in a few weeks for good behavior and he wants to set the record straight about it. He spoke to Fox Reality recently about the early release.
“He’s not getting home earlier. That’s the biggest misconception that everybody has. He was sentenced to eight months and just like the other 800 prisoners who have been released this year, if you work a full-time job, and you behave, you get days taken off,” he says. “He’s not getting out any earlier than he should have. He’s just working hard and not sitting in his cell staring at the walls. He’s been working a full-time job as a janitor scrubbing floors and toilets.”
Hogan has had a difficult year with his wife filing for divorce and his son going to jail for a drunk driving accident which left his friend permanently injured.Hogan told Fox Reality TVthat he’s now seeing the light at the end of this very long tunnel thanks to some much-needed faith.
“It’s kind of weird because I’ve had a lot of fastballs being thrown at my head this past year. A lot of things happened with personal stuff and different legal problems,” he notes. “Someone said, ‘Don’t worry about it Terry because it’s alright already. It’s in God’s hands, and everything happens for a reason.’
“It made me wake up again and be very grateful and realize that I don’t have to go anywhere to find anything because God’s taking care of me as long as I follow the path and stay positive. Things are going to be great again.”
His Faith in God may be getting him through indeed. He has a new reality show, “Hulk Hogan’s Celebrity Championship Wrestling,” premiering tonight on CMT. 10 celebrities will attempt to become wrestlers.
Hogan stated, “I figured they might be using it to get another look on TV and may not take it seriously, but everybody on the show got so into this.” Of course some took it a little too far. “Dustin Diamond was living this character. He’s a big Andy Kaufman fan, and he was a comedian who got into wrestling, so Dustin pretty much copied his character. He just got on everybody’s nerves. There was definitely some drama.”
