Brooke Hogan Not Exactly Denying Hulk WrestleMania Claims

11/30/2016 11:51 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

She got in huge trouble for saying WWE was trying to court Hulk Hogan for WrestleMania ... but Brooke Hogan ain't exactly backing off her claim.

We saw Hulk's daughter at LAX and asked her why she suggested Vince McMahon was reaching out to Hulk if that wasn't the case.  

Watch the clip ... she never says her comments were untrue -- and when asked to clarify she told us:

"How can I put it? What is a way that wont get me in trouble? ... He's capable of anything."

Remember, Hulk adamantly denied it. But after watching this ... it seems there's more going on behind the scenes than Hulk wants you to believe.

EXCLUSIVE

The Rock already has a major celebrity supporter if he REALLY decides to run for the White House -- his old WWE buddy Dave Bautista ... who says Rock is a "better candidate than f**king Trump!"

The "Guardians of the Galaxy" star was at LAX when we started talking politics -- specifically about The Rock toying with the idea of running for president when he's finished dominating Hollywood.

"I'd vote for him," Bautista said ... "He's a decent person, decent human being, good leader, smart."

Plus, Bautista adds ... "If Trump can win, anybody could definitely win."

Goldberg To Brock Lesnar: I Dare You To Elbow Me Like Orton ... I Ain't No Bitch

11/17/2016 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Goldberg is warning Brock Lesnar ... keep your freakin' elbows to yourself -- making it clear if Brock lets his arms go crazy in their upcoming WWE match, retaliation is a-comin'.

Of course, Brock left Randy Orton a bloody mess when they faced off at SummerSlam back in August -- when it appeared Lesnar caught him with a very real elbow to the face. It was brutal.

So, with Goldberg set to do battle with Brock at WWE Survivor Series on Nov. 20th -- we asked if he was concerned about suffering the same fate.

"I don't care what he did to Randy Orton. I've been throwing elbows for the past 12 years at my muay thai gym. I hope he throws elbows at me. I'm completely serious."

Goldberg says he's in killer shape and ready to roll.

Fear the Spear.

Hulk Hogan 'There's No Talk Of WrestleMania Return'

11/10/2016 9:41 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Hulk Hogan says he's had NO DISCUSSION with WWE about a WrestleMania return ... despite his daughter, Brooke Hogan, telling us he'd been contacted about a comeback.

Brooke told TMZ Sports over the weekend that "people have been calling [Hulk] about WrestleMania" ... sending wrestling fans into a frenzy. 

FYI -- Hulk was fired by the company in 2015.

But not so fast ... 'cause Hulk says it simply ain't true. Appearing on the “Bischoff on Wrestling” podcast, Hulk shot down Brooke's claim.

“Brooke running around on TMZ and the statement she made about me and wrestling and WrestleMania. For the record, like I said, she needs the big boot to the head. I haven’t talked to anybody about Wrestlemania."

There it is ... but maybe, just maybe, could this be Hulk's return secret? We'll see!

EXCLUSIVE

Ronda Rousey's MMA career is almost over, but her PRO WRESTLING career could just be getting started -- because Stephanie McMahon says she's got her sights set on the UFC legend.

Vince's daughter -- who also happens to be a minority owner and a HUGE honcho with the company -- was in NYC when we asked if the WWE had already begun the courting process.

FYI, Rousey is a BIG pro wrestling fan -- and not only made a cameo last year -- but regularly attends pro wrestling events around the country.

And with Stephanie telling us the WWE is setting a goal to have an all-women's main event at WrestleMania one day ... we can't think of a better headliner.

Green Power Ranger I Still Wanna Kick CM Punk's Ass ... Let's Make It Happen

10/15/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

That ass kicking at the hands of Mickey Gall won't save CM Punk from the Green Power Ranger ... 'cause Jason David Frank says he's still itching to put his superpowered boot across Punk's face.

We got the 7th degree black belt (that's right, the Green Ranger could legit kick your ass) -- out in NYC and he told us he's talking to Bellator about a fighting contract ... and Punk is his main target.

You might remember he called Punk out some time ago only to be mocked by the former WWE star ... but that might've changed since CM got served a little humble pie in the Octagon.

Check out the clip -- Frank is serious ... and now that CM Punk's future in the UFC is up in the air ... it might not be the worst idea to step in with JDF ... as long he promises not to morph.

Alberto Del Rio & Paige Knife Attacker Was Drunk Idiot ... Who Dissed My Girl

10/12/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-WWE superstar Alberto Del Rio says he REALLY WAS attacked by a man with a knife last week -- saying things got violent with the "drunk" assailant when he talked smack to his GF, Paige.

There has been lots of speculation about Del Rio's story -- with no witnesses coming forward, suspicious looking stab wounds and no confirmation from police (despite ADR saying he contacted cops).  

1011-sub-alberto-del-rio-instagram-03But when we saw Del Rio and Paige in NYC, the wrestler shed a little more light on the situation

"It was an incident with a guy who disrespected my girl and I just got involved in a street fight. I got a little bit hurt, but thank God I’m fine right now." 

As for the doubters, Del Rio says the suggestion he would make up the story to cover something else up is "ridiculous."

There's more ... we also spoke with Paige about the fact she violated the WWE's wellness policy twice in 3 months and if she plans to return to the WWE. 

As for Alberto, he's been named president of Combate Americas -- a Hispanic MMA franchise -- and says he vows to be the "Mexican Dana White."
