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!!!

i don't understand the people commenting as though this has anything to do with getting an "edge" on your opponent. as bobby correctly stated, the outcomes are pre-determined.

at best, this is just a way to try to get the other guy to make a mistake and look like a fool in front of a large audience.

at worst, it's assault.

it's certainly not a way to secure "victory."

So a fake wrestler said it was a legit move done by a different fake wrestler. Good to know! What does a cartoon character of a wrestler think. Hey it's hollywood ask an actor who once played a wrestler.

As if wrestling needed more bad publicity...

If someone did that to me I'd break their thumb with my buttcheeks.

Why is this guy and his inbred family still news? This guy is a first class *******, after his son puts a guy in a comma for life Ol' Hulk tried to move him to some crapy healthcare home to save some money. I bet he wishes Andre would have used his ******tick to "Check His Oil"...pops my bad I meant dip stick!

Some high school kid was expelled here last year because he (allegedly?) made this move on an underclassman. He was charged with sexual assault but I think charges were eventually dropped. It is a common wrestling move that even kids are taught. Right and ethical? That's another story.

So what Happens when some one go to the bath room and doesn't wipe away all the oil, you have to wrestle with an oil stained thumb that's nasty and gay at the same time but it don't surprise me there has always been those rumors about gay wrestlers.

They forgot to mention the part about wrestling being fake, so why would they be "oil-checking"?
