One of the greatest African-American wrestlers of all time says Hulk Hogan's time in WWE exile needs to end ... and that wrestling fans and Vince McMahon -- should give Hogan another chance.

EXCLUSIVE

Add future Houston Mayor to WWE legend Booker T's accomplishments ... 'cause the HOF wrestler tells TMZ Sports he's running for mayor, and there's no doubt he's gonna win.

We talked to Booker -- who announced this week he's running for mayor of Houston in 2019 -- about why he's diving into politics ... and whether he has a chance to actually win.

The short answer ... hell yes.

"I'm gonna win the election. That's almost a forgone conclusion. I have a lot of support. Especially from the city, the young people in the city."

But, why not start with a smaller job before running for mayor of a city with over 2 million people?

"I'm 6'3", I'm 250 lbs., I'm a big guy. I think the mayoral position is the position for Booker T."

Ex-WWE star and recovering addict Kurt Angle says his new addiction management app could "save" Lamar Odom by putting him on the path to healthy and sober living.

Kurt's no doctor, but says he's been sober for 3 years after a painkiller addiction, and he clearly believes his product -- available Jan. 15 --  could be exactly what L.O. needs in the new year.

Ex-WWE Star Shad Gaspard Crushes Armed Robber ... Idiot Pulled a BB Gun On Me!

Exclusive Details

1211-shad-gaspard-gas-station-robbery-TMZ-SPORTS-02Former WWE superstar Shad Gaspard nailed a real-life takedown of an armed robber Saturday night at a Florida convenience store. 

Coral Springs PD tells TMZ Sports ... they responded to a call around midnight for an attempted armed robbery at the store. According to police, the suspect appeared to be drunk, walked up to Shad and said, "Hey man, buy me a beer." When Shad said, "There's a better way to ask than that" ... police say the suspect whipped out his firearm.

The store clerk says Shad quickly shoved the suspect against the cooler door, grabbed the guy's gun and it fell to the ground.

Shad tells us he was trying to remove the gun's magazine when he saw an air canister compartment, and realized it was just a BB gun. The 6'7", nearly 300 lb. ex-wrestler took over at that point -- taking the dumbass to the ground and holding him until officers arrived.

Pro Wrestling Sheet also reported Shad's heroics, which were pretty bad ass ... especially considering he didn't know it was a BB gun. That makes no difference to cops, btw -- the suspect was booked for robbery with a weapon.
