Hulk to Linda: Adultery Accusation is "Pathetic"

Hulk Hogan is kinda sorta striking back at his soon-to-be-ex wife -- one day after she blamed the split on an affair Hulk had with their daughter's BFF.

In a statement released through his lawyer David Houston, Hulk says, "It is unfortunate Linda Hogan will do virtually anything to keep herself in the public spotlight. We are not going to demean this process nor the family any longer by responding to what amounts to pathetic pleas for attention."

Sorry, Hulkster, but "pathetic pleas for attention" run in the family.
