As had been reported, Hulk Hogan has gone on the record a few times now claiming that he was offered the role of Randy “The Ram” Robinson in The Wrestler, but had turned it down because he didn’t want his reputation to distract from the film itself. He reiterated this claim on his recent Howard Stern appearance.

 
Apparently, this little tidbit is news to Darren Aronofsky who as director and producer would probably know.
 
Aronofsky posted to Twitter:

 

for the record the role of the wrestler was always @mickeyrourke it was never hulk hogan’s as he claims on @howardstern

 

 

----------------------

 

How many times can a guy get called out on his own bullshit before learning to shut up? 

 

Hogan's acomplishments over the years

-Slamming 800 lb Andre 

-Orginally the lead guy for in home grilling (not George Foreman) 

-Could of played in Metalica 

-Was sought after for the lead role in The Wrestler but declined

 

I'm sure I'm forgetting many too

LOL this is actually funny.

 

He also claimed to once have been taller, but shrunk from giving the leg drop.  He needs another book where he includes all of this and more.

 

Meanwhile Warrior heard about this and punched several holes in the wall.

I guess he has been so busy for so many years he never had time to learn how to wrestle. He never had time to get good enough in the ring that he did not have to be carried by much better wrestlers.
He never had time to learn the difference between a wrist lock and a wristwatch...

Hogan only lives in the world of kayfabe. He completely transcended reality in the mid 80's.

I need to correct you on one thing Winky. Andre is up to 898 lbs now. He gains weight each time Hogan thinks about the match.

I'm also pretty sure I remember a radio interview some years back where Hogan claimed Andre was just over a thousand pounds. He literally said after making that claim that he "body slammed over half a ton with no assistance, since Andre didn't want to be slammed."

Fuckin' Hogan.

Oh yeah, don't get me wrong. Hogan is a GRADE A BULLSHITTER to the max but I don't regret my days as a Hulkamaniac! Hogan was the man when I was growing up. The thing is, he could still be the man, but he threw all that down the shitter once he sold his soul for a reality TV show.

I'll elaborate just a little: after Hogan vs. Rock, Hogan was the fucking All American hero in the eyes of many, myself included, once again. But then he decided to do reality TV, he decided to goto TNA, and you know the rest. He couldn't help but keep shoving that dagger a little deeper into his legacy with every decision he made after his second WWE run.

Didn't he once claim that he worked more days then there are in a year, and when called on it he said it was because he crossed timezones so much he actually gained days?

Never heard that, but man I hope it is true.  Hogan is hilarious.

Me too. 

on a funny note. our school used to have a "prize store" for kids to cash in their reading points to get prizes. I remember one year they had the Hulk Hogan mixers.. Those things were the best (for the five days they actually worked)
