Hulk's story backs up the claim made by TMZ's Mike Walters -- that wrestlers will press a finger on the bottom end of an opponent in an effort to throw them off their game ... aka "Checking the Oil."

According to Hulk, who was at LAX yesterday, Andre would oil-check people "all the time" -- and the worst part about it ... HIS FINGERS WERE HUGE!!!

Since Professional Rasslin' was scripted (fake) the "oil check" must have been a romantic gesture rather than a athletic move.

Like Bobby said, these guys aren't competing, they're putting on a show. Hulk just likes being on TMZ if you haven't noticed, total bs.

Sick done by anyone anywhere anytime. To admit being on the receiving end of this or the 'giving' end is sick.

I think the homosexual tendencies of the management it showing through here more and more on this website. That's what this is, validation of this behavior. Adios TMZ>
