Hulk Hogan’s ex-wife Linda appeared on NBC’s Today this morning and was interviewed by Matt Lauer to promote her new tell-all book, “Wrestling With The Hulk.” The most newsworthy part of the interview is Linda claiming that Hulk was physically violent with her during their marriage. Below is a recap of her appearance, courtesy of site contributor Mark Christie, as well as a video clip of the appearance:
- Matt Lauer started off by saying that they reached out to Hulk Hogan, but he had no comment. Linda was asked about her statements that drugs were rampant in the wrestling world during Hulk’s career. She said that drugs were always around the house, from painkillers to steroids. According to Linda, Hogan would often become violent, throwing chairs, smashing doors, and choking her.
- Linda stated that Hogan Knows Best was good for the family in that it brought them together during tough times. Their marriage ended shortly after the series was finished. Lauer then asked her about Nick Hogan’s role in the accident that seriously injured John Graziano. Linda actually said that the eight months that Nick received was too harsh of a sentence. Lauer then concluded the interview by plugging the book.
