In the first book, we got a lot of wrestling stories and we also saw a lot of Hulk's life glossed over and certain events minimised to a great extent. Admittedly the book was written with the backing of the WWE so there was limits to what could be written.
In his latest book, we see very little wrestling discussion and much more of a real look at Terry Bollea the man rather than Hulk Hogan the wrestler.
Hulk has had a bad last few years with the injuries from his career starting to take a greater toll on him, his son being involved in a major car wresck that left his friend permanently injured and sent Hulk's son to jail for 8 months. There was Hulk's divorce and the subsequent financial punishment that he faced with the divorce and the lawsuits coming from the car accident.
Hulk was a nearly beaten man by 2007.
In this book, Hulk tells us of his feelings leading into his issues and then how he slowly but surely climbed out from the troubles to become a better man. He sets the story straight on the rumours that were circulating about him and his conduct in the last few years.
Has he glossed over some things? Maybe, maybe not, but considering the amount of things that he discusses in this book (drugs, marital infidelity allegations, thoughts of suicide etc), he hasn't left many stones unturned at all.
This is a far better book than the rather ordinary 2003 book. Hogan lets it all out in My Life Outside the Ring and one gets the feeling that you have read a quality book.
Ultimately, I came away happy I read this book, and hope that Terry..er Hulk breathes clean air for many many more years....highly recommended.
Cut to Hulk's book and as I got deeper into it...I began to realize my hunch about Linda was right and much worse. I believe Hulk's version. Linda is demanding, spoiled and an angry woman. She demanded new, larger more expensive homes which Hulk would buy her to keep her happy since she would threaten to leave him because she was so unhappy. No sooner did they purchase a home that it wasn't enough. Linda wanted homes in spots they would vacation in...so those were bought and tore down. Her brother would remodel the homes at exorbitant prices... Linda's mother was the decorator at exorbitant prices and the homes budgets became budget busters.
Linda...in her book said Hulk always accused her of having a drinking problem...Read more ›
