World's Tallest Actress Protect Me From 'Amazon' Shooter

9/27/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0925-lindsay-kay-hayward-tmz-01

Lindsay Kay Hayward says a guy with a gun has made her life miserable and she needs a judge to protect her from harassment and harm.

Lindsay -- the nearly 7 footer on TLC's "My Giant Life" -- claims her manager has guns, practices shooting them and has "joked that the only way to 'put an Amazon down' is to shoot them." 

The former WWE professional wrestler says it's not just about her safety ... she says former manager Brad Konia is on a campaign to destroy her personally and professionally. She says Konia has contacted her employers and potential employers and slandered her. She says he's done the same on her website.

She humble brags a bit, telling the judge she's especially worried Konia will sully her upcoming guest spot on "Grey's Anatomy." 

For his part ... Brad tells TMZ he's never threatened to harm Lindsay ... not even jokingly. He believes Lindsay's gripes stem from an ongoing lawsuit he filed against her over money.

The judge didn't buy the emergency and rejected Lindsay's petition for a temporary restraining order.

Sting Full Recovery Uncertain After Neck Injury in Seth Rollins Match

9/21/2015 1:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Sting is recovering at home Monday, after sustaining a serious neck injury ... so serious doctors are not able to give a long-term prognosis, TMZ Sports has learned. 

Sting was seriously hurt Sunday night in the WWE championship match against Seth Rollins. We're told he was injured several times during the match,  the most serious being the powerbomb against the turnbuckle which caused the neck injury. 

Our wrestling sources tell us, doctors did a CAT scan at the hospital Sunday and thankfully there were no fractures. Sting was released Monday afternoon and is on his way home.  He's able to walk but is in significant pain.

Sting's manager says the wrestler is in "remarkable health and resiliency," especially for his age ... 56.

The manager says, "The greatest damage to his body took place before the match was over, but being the true professional he is and among the hardest workers to ever step foot in the ring, he insisted to see the match through to the end."

WWE's Virgil Trump Campaigns Like a WWE Star ... He Learned It From Me

9/19/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0917-virgil-donald-trump-TMZ-01If Donald Trump makes it to the White House, he better hold a seat at the inauguration for WWE legend Virgil ... who says the Donald got his over-the-top persona from talking to him.

Virgil watched Trump verbally spar with Carly Fiorina and Jeb Bush at this week's debate, and thinks he was simply giving the crowd what it wants -- a great show. Virgil says he met Donald at WWE events in the '80s and '90s, and claims the business mogul picked his brain for tips on being a great showman.

Now, he believes his swagger tips could take Donald all the way, telling us ... "People like the spectacle. People want to see confidence. He is confident just like a wrestler."

Virgil, who is a Republican, had one more piece of advice for Donald -- "All people want to know is that they can pay the bills and live a good life. They want confidence they can eat."

Hulk Hogan Lands Big New Endorsement Deal ... What N-Word Scandal?

9/11/2015 7:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0911-hulk-hogan-tmz-02Former WWE Hulk Hogan is bouncing back from the n-word scandal that ended his WWE career ... by signing on as the spokesman for a major sports gambling website.  

Hulk is teaming up with Fanpicks.com ... one of the leaders in Daily Fantasy Sports, which just so happens to be the biggest thing in sports gambling these days.

The site is clearly aware Hulk has some baggage these days -- it's been almost two months since he was dropped by the WWE for using the n-word back in the day -- but a spokesman says, "We all make mistakes and deserve second chances."

Hulk adds, "I am looking forward to connecting with all my Hulkamaniacs during some of the biggest games of the year and at upcoming Fan Pick live events in the near future."

And if you mention Hulk's name when you sign up -- in the form of the code Hulk25 -- you get an extra something in your account. 

Say your prayers, take your vitamins ... and when in doubt, take the points.

Hulk Hogan says his life was in shambles at the time he went on his N-word rant -- and things were so bad, he contemplated suicide.  

Hogan appeared on "Good Morning America" and tried to explain where his head was at in 2006 when he repeatedly hurled racial slurs in a rant caught on video.

"I was to the point where I wanted to kill myself, you know? I was completely broken and destroyed and said, ‘What's the easiest way out of this?' I mean, I was lost."


ABC Latest News | Latest News Videos

Hogan says he's begging his fans for forgiveness over using the word -- and insists he's not a racist person at heart.   

"I'm not a racist but I never should have said what I said. It was wrong. I'm embarrassed by it."

Hogan also says he "inherited" racial bias from growing up in Tampa back in the day -- explaining, "People need to realize that you inherit things from your environment. And where I grew up was south Tampa, Port Tampa, and it was a really rough neighborhood, very low income. And all my friends, we greeted each other saying that word."

Dean Ambrose, one of the giants in the WWE, was almost attacked during a taping of Smackdown ... attacked by a guy some say was holding a sharp object which at least one fan says was a knife.

It happened right after the show in Providence.  You see the would-be attacker come right for Ambrose, but a quick-thinking security uses a wrestling move of his own, body slamming him to the ground.

It's unclear what happened to the guy or what if anything he was clutching.

 Dean was unharmed.
