Darren Aronofsky Calls Hulk Hogan Out – Details

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

    Hogan is a dick. the things linda said about him are prob true he always acts like he does nothing wrong and is perfect

    Fuck you haters let him do what he wants, go and worship a fat whore linda. No matter what hogan does, he'll still be my childhood hero, and will be the one who made my satuday mornings special when wwf superstars of wrestling gave. HULKAMANIA WILL LIVE ON FOREVER!

      Damn dude calm down ur so far up the Hucksters ass that he can probably lick your brown nose. You just need to come into reality and know that even yours and just about every persons childhood hero’s are not perfect especially this lying stupid one of the most over-rated dumbass wrestlers to step into a wrestling ring. That you for your time “brother”.

      Hulk stopped taking his vitamins and saying his prayers a long time ago. If you still do that, kudos to you. But the guy is a sham now…. just a shadow of his former self.

      Don't get me wrong, he's great in the right capacity. But this is becoming too much. You know several people in TNA and Panda are cringing and grinding their teeth every time he goes on a media blitz.

      It is perfectly ok to have a childhood hero. What is very strange is to grow up and still have hero worship. Get some help, fast.

    Hulk couldn't lie straight in bed.

    Same thing happened with Angle, re. joining UFC. Wrestlers love to embelish, its there job, someone probably mentioned to hogan his name was thrown up as the lead for the wrestler and suddenly he's being offered the part…

      Hogan seems to take it a step further though. Sometimes I wonder if he really can distinguish the truth from a lie anymore. It is like he doesn't comprehend that what he is saying is false and that it will eventually come back to bite him. Whether it is other wrestlers who knew both he and Randy Savage calling B.S. on perhaps fibs he tells to put himself in a better light like his alleged makeup with Savage or saying he was offered the part in a movie. To perhaps vicious vindictive lies like denying he was actively involved in wife swapping and wanting to threaten legal action against people, only to have it come out that yes he obviously was a wife swapper and there is video proof. Or even little white lies like claiming Live TV will solve all of TNA's problems and ratings, then retracting and making statements like live TV isn't the end all be all etc when the problems are not resolved, to HUGE Obvious ego driven lies that make you question his sanity like he was going to be a member of one of the most popular Metal bands in history, Metallica. It mean it's Fing Metallica, it is not like a lie like that would go unnoticed.

    How is he "calling him out"?

  6. Leg Drop Jobber says:

    Let me translate the "Hogan Catch Phrase" for you. "Saying your prayers," actually means stepping on and even sabotaging the lives and careers of others, all in the name of ego and greed. "Taking your vitamins" is code for steroids, pain killers and cocaine.

    When I was a kid, I hated Hogan. I hated his character, I hated his "wrestling" and most of all I hate the way that he and the WWF changed wresting into a cartoon show. I'm glad the world is now getting to see what a scumbag the guy actually is. BOO HOGAN.
