If you're a listener of our weekly Livecast, you know how much of a wrestling fan, neigh, mark that I am. I love reading all about all the behind the scenes happenings in wrestling, and the ultimate shocker in all my years of following it is just how much of a lying selfish prick Hulk Hogan is. I mean, Scott Steiner has dedicated his whole Twitter account to how much of a jerk he is. Hogan loves to exaggerate stories, sometimes even making things up. One of his favorite stories to tell is how he plays bass and once almost auditioned for Metallica right after Cliff Burton died. He says he talked to drummer Lars Ulrich himself. Well guess what? Lars was on Howard Stern the other day, and pretty much was like "Hulk Hogan who?" Here is the direct quote:
"You know what?! I'm blessed or cursed, depending on how you look at it, with having more or less a photographic memory for pretty much anything that I've been a part of," Lars replied. "That one, when that showed up two or three months ago, I was scratching my head over that one. Unless he went by… I don't know Hulk Hogan, I don't know enough about him… I'm not a huge wrestling [fan]… Unless he went by, like, his Christian name or something, and I don't know if anybody knows what his Christian name was — Dave Smith or something — if there was a whole thing that we had with him under a different name, but I certainly have no recollection of doing anything with quote Hulk Hogan endquote. That one, I was scratching my head on that one, too."
So glad people are calling Hogan out on his shit. [via Blabbermouth]
