Hulk Hogan -- I Know Why O.J. Did It

4/15/2009 6:18 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Hulk Hogan thinks O.J. Simpson may have had a point -- when he slit his ex wife's throat.

Hulk Hogan & O.j.Simpson

Hulk sees a parallel between the plights of poor O.J. and himself. Hulk just told Rolling Stone: "You live half a mile from the 20,000-square-foot home you can't go to anymore, you're driving through downtown Clearwater and see a 19-year-old boy driving your Escalade, and you know that a 19-year-old boy is sleeping in your bed, with your wife . . . I totally understand OJ. I get it."

Kato, your room is ready...

UPDATE: Linda Hogan's rep just issued a statement: "We have always maintained that the fear that Linda has had to live with comes from the rage and instability much too often associated with pro wrestlers." The statement goes on: "Linda and her family are taking these recent homicidal comments seriously."

The statement concludes by saying Linda's attorney is weighing his legal options.

UPDATE #2: Hulk's attorney, David R. Houston, tells us, "Page 6 only quoted a very small portion of the Rolling Stone article, not the statement in its entirety. He said that he understands the frustration that can lead to that sort of activity but he definitely does not condone it. He is grounded in his faith and a belief in a higher power and does not believe in violence for any reason."

Goodie, we may get a new trial of the century this summer to watch on tv, so we won't have to watch re-runs on TVland.

I can't see how he compares Nicole Brown to Linda. Was Hulk abusive to Linda, like OJ was to Nicole?? OJ got to stay in his mansion. Nicole and the kids moved out; to a nice condo, it looked like.. I have a lot of respect for Nicole; not so for Linda Hogan and even less for Hulk. I think him being in so many wrestling matches did something to his brain; like scramble it up. And I will repeat, he seems to have a girlfriend who looks like Brooke. I feel sorry for Brooke, to have such screwed up parents...

I would never compare Nicole with Linda. From books I have read, Nicole was never with a 19 year old. OJ had the mansion; not Nicole.. As others have said, you should move on with your life, Hulk. And you owe Nicole's family and her children an apology And Ron Goldman's family, too. No one deserves the deaths Nicole and Ron got...

Hulk, pay the b**** off and be done with her. She is never going to get a job or contribute anything to society, neither is her blood sucking lawyer. He simply takes everything you say, twists it around and tries to manipulate the press. Courts do not care and are more than willing to allow crap like his to go on forever for the sole purpose of feeding the other lawyers more money. Linda will get what she deserves,... its called fate. Be done with this, you will have plenty of earning power left without her, plus you will have your pride and self respect. Something she never had. Her winy piss ant mouth piece attorney doesn't even know the defination.

He said he doesn't believe in violence for any reason.....except to make money as a pro wrestler?
Does anyone else notice the irony of a pro wrestler not believing in violence for any reason??

Hulk, convert to Islam and then perform an honor killing. It will be against the law for anyone to speak out against you then.

Hulk isn't going to kill anyone. His "C" word of a wife has been rubbing his nose in it for a long time now. He offered her more than half of everything, but that wasn't enough. Now he has to watch as she does everything she can to push his buttons. I doubt she's really scared, but if so, good. The witch has it coming.

not that this isn't interesting Harv - don't wanna sound like a Harv-Hater.. I'm not.. just wish you'd use your power for more than the fun stuff..
So let me comment by saying that it was waaaay evident that Hulk loved her more than she loved him and that was after all the editing of their show.. if that's all they had to work with to show she was into him then dayum! She wasn't into him - she thought she was hot like all cougars trick themselves into believing and she forgot the only reason young guys wanna hit is because she is a Hulk and prob. has money.... You'll be ok HULK you're a good guy man! A good Dad and was a good husband..
That chick just didn't appreciate you and took the very thing that got her living good as a joke... F&@! ThAT B*#^@*
FOrgive her later for his wrong doings against you - for now realize she ain't worth it man and there's a lady out there who will love you.. stop falling for boobies and look for a real lady mang!
ONE LOVE!
