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."

So HH doesn't believe in violence for any reason? How did he make all his money??? Oh yeah, in a ring pretending to beat the crap out of people. Sounds kind of violent to me rather its real or not.

This was probably taken out of context. I just can't believe how much of a bitch Linda turned out to be. The only reason Linda filed for divorce is because she believes that Terry is a bad influence on their son. I've always been a Hulkamaniac, and for Linda to accuse Hulk of doing to her what Chris Benoit did to himself and his family is sad. By making that statement, she admits to knowing and condoning the use of steroids. She's had a lot of work done to herself, too, so she should just shut-up!

Man, I feel so bad for Hulk Hogan! Instead of taking this one quote about OJ I wish TMZ would take the transcripts from him on the Bubba the Love Sponge show last week and everyone will see the REAL picture of whats going on. Hogan has told Linda she can have everything, just allow him to keep his future earnings and the B!*CH said NO!!! She not only wants all of the WWF Hulkamania money but she wants a piece whatever he can get earn for the remainder of their lives as well. Let the man go on with his life Linda. Enogh is enough!!!

The moral of the story for men is DO NOT GET MARRIED! There are no benefits for a man to get married. What do you get from being married that you can't get when you're single? The answer is nothing. A few comparisons.

1. Boring sex with the same person all the time, or new exciting experiences with different people?

2 For cooking and cleaning, you can hire someone. Its cheaper than having a wife. If you factor in the cost of buying her shoes, purses, jewelry,etc... along with the extra cost of food, utilities, and health insurance that having a wife will incur, its cheaper to hire someone, or you could cook and clean for yourself.

3 Your would be able to live as an adult MAN! No more questions about where you were, who was there,etc... You can watch all the sports you want without the constant talking and nagging.

4. Most importantly, you get to keep what you WORKED, PAID, AND SACRIFICED for. It just won't arbitrarily given away to someone else who really did nothing to earn the things typically lost in divorce.

I imagine that the marriage failure cannot possibly be blamed 100% on Linda. People just don't like her. They can't see past that. AND SO WHAT IF SHE'S DATING A 19 YEAR-OLD ???????? HOW SEXIST CAN YOU GET ??????? MEN DO IT ALL THE TIME.........HULK IS JUST USING THAT TO TRY TO FURTHER RUIN LINDA'S CHANCES. And why does Hulk suddenly think she's entitled to nothing just because they're divorcing ? Hello ? you were married a long time...she had your kids and raised them....why not have some character and split what you have ? why the opinion that a woman who is divorcing is worth nothing ? What the hell ? Men are the greedy ones.......notice how it's all "his" now ?
She was not the hired help, get it ? Is there NO feeling left for his ex ? is she an axe-murderer or something ? and her own daughter bitches about her. I'll bet Linda is wondering why she gave her LIFE and TIME to these people.....she deserves to have some fun with her boy-toy. WHY NOT ?

What all you haters don't understand is Linda is a complete and udder idiot. So is TMZ for covering a story that doesn't exists. Linda seems to be getting away with breaking the law with her UNDERAGE BF, you know smoking some weed, drinking with a UNDER AGED Punk. And then this Beatch wants Hulk to increase the coverage to include Linda's BF on the policy? Come on, Hulk was mis quoted and now all you fools are bashing him. Before you make your judgment on him find out the facts. And to the idiot on here that said it's 50-50 that is true but why is Hulk paying her bills and even attorney bills? That's not 50-50, and then How would you feel if your soon to be ex was mad that you were using the "family" money to pay the legal fee's for his son! And if Hulk is so bad why is Brooke writing a song about her mom? And I hear it's not going to be nice! Wake up people, and TMZ!!!!

This is in reference to post #89 by Ginger:
First of all, you need to use the spell-check on your computer. Secondly, Mr. Hogan is no different than any other man who has cheated on his wife, therefore, why else is he obviously jacked-off about his wife finding out the TRUTH about HIM cheating?? That's WHY he is NOW IN DIVORCE COURT, you moron! Linda Hogan is entitled to everything she is asking for from the courts. What she is NOT entitled to is threats of violence of any kind. She should immediately file a PFA against this roid-raged idiot. Linda has moved on and living her life now. Mr. Hogan cannot accept that, so, he reverts back to acting like the 15 year old boy he mentally is. Let's see you handle a situation like this, where domestic violence looms.

Deeds Researcher    

First of all, Hulkster, it is very clear to me that Mr. Simpson did not murder his ex-wife. I followed the trial and the relevant testimony from beginning to end, and concluded that Simpson was not guilty before the case was given to the jury.
The key to being able to arrive at the correct verdict was in being able to ignore the emotional aspects of the case, especially that of Mr. Goldman and his sneering face, and focus instead only on the facts. (As Joe Friday used to say, "The facts, ma'am, Just the facts.")
Allowing oneself to be swayed by the emotional side of the case was an easy thing to do. People saw gruesome pictures on TV and in the newspapers, and immediately had to think Simpson was automatically guilty...before all of the facts were brought out at the trial.
Unless someone asks, I'm not going to get into those ddetails in this message, as it would take quite a bit of typing! However, if even one person wants to know the truth, then I'd be perfectly willing, even if it means that a former LAPD detective winds up in jail for the rest of his life.
My real point here is that Mr. Hogan should just keep his mouth shut. If his "little hulkamaniacs" would keep there mouths shut, too, that might help to clean up the air.

I am sure Linda is taking the comment seriously as she wants to squeeze as much money as she can out of Hulk. I think that Hogan made a comment that was just that a comment. I don't think he will follow through on these threats. Both of them look pathetic in their attempts to date children that are in around the same age as their own children. Grow up Linda and Hulk. Oh and Linda stop making your lawyer richer. There is so much you can do with the money you pay out to your lawyer. Like get a face lift, liposuction, all that good stuff. Poor Linda she stuck with Hulk all through the good times and the great money he made. Now that this part is over for him, she has found him to be threating to her personally. Ha ha ha , Bull crap Linda.
