Hulk Hogan is one of those icons that most of us remember growing up, and many of us looked up to. We could definitely not imagine the Hulkster as the suicidal type, but it’s true! At least that is what the Hulk Hogan’s Celebrity Championship Wrestling star revealed recently to Oprah! Yikes, what was that all about?
Most of us remember watching Hulk Hogan while we were growing up, and he was always more of an icon in the world of professional wrestling (and to many fans). So when we think of him being suicidal, it doesn’t seem right, does it? Well, everyone has a breaking point, even the Hulkster!
In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, Hogan revealed that back in 2007, after his marriage started to crumble, his reality show was canceled and his son had a DUI crash, it left him with thoughts of suicide. “Everything got dark, everything happened at once. I was drinking alcohol very heavily. It just all kept piling up, it all kept mounting and mounting I didn’t know how to handle it. I always wondered how could someone possibly take their own life and so I got to that point where I said, ‘You know what, maybe this would be easy. You know, maybe this would be an easy way to fix things,” Hogan explained to Winfrey.
But it was the love of his fans that ultimately saved Hulk Hogan – or at least got him to snap him back into reality. Hogan dished that he was at a New Year’s Eve event with family and friends, and: “When I walked outside, some kid ran up and hugged me and was like, ‘Oh I grew up watching you. I didn’t have a dad, you’re like a dad to me.’ And there was another person that said ‘Hey Hulk, we love you.’”
And then it clicked for Hogan. “I now realize I had to go through all this stuff to be who I am today,” he concluded.
Wow. What do you think of Hulk Hogan being suicidal? Shocking, isn’t it? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear it. Comment below to share your thoughts with us!
