I always picture pro wrestlers as slightly homophobic. Sure, they play grapple with each other in tights, probably shower together and run around naked whipping each other with rat tails, but I imagine if one of them even grazes another’s penis just once, it’s fag this fag that because manly men don’t touch other dudes’ wangs. So I take this rumor with a grain of salt.
Linda Hogan was on Matty P’s Radio Happy Hour where she was asked a question taken from a fan email. It alleged Hulk Hogan carried on an “intimate relationship” with Brutus Beefcake. Linda needed publicity for her book so she said,
“Wow, I don’t know how to answer this, so I don’t end up getting a lawsuit,” she said, laughing. “A little bird told me, ‘Yes they think they did.’”
To be fair, Brutus Beefcake is a pretty gay name so I can see why someone would think that. It’s like being a kid named Scooter. How can you not expect someone to steal your lunch money?
