Hulk Hogan I Still Love WWE ... And I Wanna Be Trump's Running Mate

8/29/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Two interesting comments from Hulk Hogan -- he's NOT mad with the WWE for cutting ties with him over the N-word ... and says he wants to make America great again, by running with Donald Trump!!!!

First, the WWE thing ... it's been more than a month since Vince McMahon wiped all traces of Hogan from the website after reports surfaced that he used the N-word in a racial rant years ago. 

Even after several black wrestlers and celebs vouched for Hulk -- saying he's not a racist at heart -- Vince has refused to bring him back into the WWE universe. 

So, how does Hogan feel about being blackballed? Check out the clip ... he views the situation more as a temporary "family" conflict and joked that the only "hard feelings" he's going to have is "when I get [Vince McMahon] in the ring again." 

As for the Trump comments ... Hulk says he thinks the country is finally ready for Vice President Hogan, brother.

Ronda Rousey Porn Trailer Naked Armbars ... For Miesha Taint!

8/26/2015 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's a Ronda Rousey fantasy come true -- for UFC and porn fans alike --  and TMZ Sports has the first look at "Ronda ArousMe" ... the highly anticipated porn parody of the champ.

The good folks at Burning Angel won't say when they'll have a full release of the XXX film ... so, soak this up. It features Ronda taking on foes like Miesha Taint. Awesome porn wordplay, right? 

It's also got tons of MMA action and some dialogue ... not that you care.  

FYI -- Burning Angel is NOT the company that made the muti-million dollar offer for the real Ronda to do a porn, but since she'll NEVER actually do that -- this is as close as you're gonna get. 

Hands where we can see 'em, please.

Two Holy Cross football coaches just turned a regular practice into an all-out pro wrestling styled WAR ... reenacting the epic SummerSlam match for their team.

The combatants? A linebackers coach and a tight ends coach in the roles of Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker. Our friends over at BSO reposted this move-for-move portrayal of the bout ... filled with all the chest slaps and chokeslams of the original.

If this doesn't get Holy Cross players fired up for the Monmouth University opener ... nothing will.

Jon Stewart Powerslammed By John Cena ... Payback's a Bitch!

8/25/2015 6:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Good luck finding your moment of zen now ... 

Jon Stewart -- whose old job was safely positioned behind a desk, never once attacked by a musclebound thug -- was powerslammed by John Cena last night ... hard. 

The former "Daily Show" host appeared on WWE's "Monday Night Raw" where he was confronted by Cena ... who was still pissed at Jon for hitting him with a steel chair at SummerSlam this weekend. 

They argued. Cena got mad. And then picked up Stewart ... twirled him around like a rag doll ... and then punished him with his famous finishing move, the Attitude Adjustment.

Fake or definitely fake ... getting thrown to the mat like that has GOT to hurt.

Dear Vince McMahon ... please make this happen. 


UFC's Brittney Palmer Hubby Won't Be Charged with Attempted Murder In Choking Case

8/19/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0818-palmer-zalewski-instagram-getty-01The husband of UFC Octagon girl Brittney Palmer just got a HUGE break ... he won't be prosecuted for allegedly brutalizing her so badly he was arrested for attempted murder.

Aaron Zalewski allegedly choked Brittney within an inch of her life after an argument over a cell phone. She says he overheard her talking to a casting agent who called her "babe" and he went berserk. 

Law enforcement sources tell us, Aaron Zalewski will not be charged with a crime. The L.A. City Attorney will hold an informal meeting with the two. If he owns what he did and shows contrition, he won't be prosecuted. The City Attorney could force him into anger management in return for dropping the case.

One string will stay attached ... if he does it again before the statute of limitations runs out, the City Attorney would have the right to file charges. 

Brittney and Aaron are still together.

WWE Taps Out ... On 'Submission Sorority'

8/7/2015 10:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0807-wwe-divas-instagram-01The WWE fixed its colossal XXX mistake ... by dropping its Divas team name after it accidentally pointed fans toward tons of Internet porn. 

According to the WWE, it changed Paige, Charlotte and Becky's Submission Sorority because its TV programming is PG -- and they didn't know the name had porn ties.

As we reported ... the search results for Submission Sorority turned up thousands of porn results.

During Thursday night’s episode of "SmackDown" the Diva team name was quietly changed to PCB on parts of WWE's website. Charlotte even started hashtagging with it.

0805_submission-sorority_wweThe WWE just made a XXX-sized oops ... by naming a group of their Divas after a hardcore porn series -- which likely directed their fans toward the wrong kind of pile drivers.

During "Monday Night Raw," WWE unveiled Submission Sorority -- the new official team name for sexy Divas ... Paige, Becky, and Charlotte. Sure, it's a badass name ... but an Internet search for the team points you to tons of links for a porn series called HazeHer, produced by BangBros.

Social media went nuts after 'Raw' -- some people thought it was hilarious, but others were pissed kids could be exposed to porn.

BangBros traffic analyst Delilah Mcginnis says their web traffic shot up 56% overnight, and they saw a 35% rise in subscriptions. 

Not shockingly, we're told the porn co. plans to send Vince McMahon a 'thank you' gift basket -- God only knows what will be in it.

'Rowdy' Roddy Piper Dies at 61 From Cardiac Arrest

7/31/2015 2:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0731_roddy_piper_gettyWrestling legend "Rowdy" Roddy Piper has died at the age of 61 ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Piper -- born Roderick George Toombs -- died from cardiac arrest in his sleep at his home in Hollywood on Thursday night. He was discovered on Friday. 

Piper was a wrestling icon -- one of the biggest stars in the WWE back in the '80s, and even wrestled in "Wrestlemania I" back in 1985 ... squaring off against Hulk Hogan and Mr. T. 

Roddy's rep tells us, "I am devastated at this news. Rod was a good friend as well as a client and one of the most generous, sincere and authentic people I have ever known. This is a true loss to us all."

Piper had been diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in 2006, but last November he said he was cancer free. A family source tells us he was "cancer free" at the time of his death.

A family member tells us, "Our family is saddened by the sudden passing of our father and beloved husband, Roderick Toombs aka Rowdy Roddy Piper." 

Roddy was admitted into the WWE Hall of Fame back in 2005 and was one of the top 50 villains in the history of the WWE.  

Piper had a long relationship with WWE -- last wrestling back in 2008 ... but appeared on various WWE shows up until 2014.  

Roddy is survived by his wife Kitty and their 4 kids -- including 3 daughters and son Colton who's pursuing a career in professional wrestling. 

The death is especially shocking considering we just spoke to him on Friday and asked his opinion about the Hulk Hogan scandal.
