'Half Pint Brawlers'

Hulk Hogan is Ripping Us Off

The guys from "Half Pint Brawlers" feel so ripped off by Hulk Hogan's new "midget wrestling" show on TruTV,  they're talkin' lawsuit.

HPB's founder Puppet the Psycho Dwarf tells TMZ ... Hulk's new show, "Micro Championship Wrestling," is straight up stealing.

"Half Pint Brawlers" on Spike TV followed a group of midget wrestlers trying to create a specialty brand ... which is exactly what Hulk is doing on TruTV.

The reality star goes on to say, "There were a lot of situations that appeared to be copied from what we already did. There were also statements made by members that are almost the exact words out of my mouth."

More than a little coincidental?

It sounds like the Half Pint Brawlers are getting the 'short' end of the deal.

I've met Hogan before and he's just a bastard full of himself. The only reason he's around are the rednecks and wiggas in this town.

Hulk Hogan is short of female wrestlers. I think that he should hire that lady on the "pit boss" show

If all else fails they could have "HALF PINT CRAWLERS" or baby wrestling.

I read from one midget wrestler that he also works in a bar at night in florida and wears his black mask. He claims that he has an opened challenge for anyone to wrestle him and if they can pin him, they win a prize. I forget what the prize was? He also claims many people have tried and not one was able to pin him out of all the people who attempted to pin him for I believe it was 3 minutes (I don't have the article with me)that the wrestler had to have his shoulders pinned to the mat. Now, I don't believe that for an instant. You take any man who is 6'4" and weighs 255 pds. you mean to tell me this midget wrestler could kick out of a pin situation?? The entire staff with Hogan and his two people and all of the midget wrestlers are talking trash and expect the public to buy it.
