Hulkamaniacs, brace yourselves ... Hulk Hogan just admitted to lying you as a child -- telling us his shirt ripping days weren't quite pure 'cause sometimes ... HE CHEATED!!!
The Hulkster styled his way through LAX wearing a cheetah print bandana ... and played dumb about a possible return to the WWE at "Wrestlemania XXX."
But when we asked Hulk about the iconic shirt-ripping thing he used to do back in the day ... Hogan fessed up and told us what he sometimes did to help tear it off so easily ... and it's kinda, sorta heartbreaking.
What's next? He didn't take his vitamins or say his prayers either?!
