How I met the Hulkster!

  1. Back in 2000, I was a strapping 16 year old, and was on vacation with my parents in Florida. It was 8pm and we were bored. So we decided to go to Wal-Mart, to see if we could pick up a movie and some snacks.

    As we were walking through the women's section, cause my sister could never go to a store without looking at clothes; I spotted something. A boobtastic mom with her blonde daughter, who looked to be my age. As I looked at them I thought, "these two look way to fancy to be in a Wal-Mart". So I stared for a while, mostly at the mother's chest (I was 16 after all), and went about my business.

    Finally, we get the movie (Terminator 1 DVD), snacks, and cash out. As we exit into the foyer, who do I see watching his son play Crusin' the World(An unfortunate foreshadowing for the future)? As you probably guessed by the title of the thread: Hulk freakin' Hogan!

    I couldn't believe what I was seeing! What was a world famous, multi-millionaire doing at a Wal-Mart, at nearly 9pm on a weeknight? I finally worked up the courage and politely asked him for a picture. "No problem dude." He called me dude! I sat next to him and took the picture. At that time I was 5'10 210lbs and looked like a midget sitting next to him. I got up and shook his massive hand, said thank you, and walked away.

    As I was leaving, another man walked in and shouted, "Looks like I'm not the only one who has to wait for my wife." He responded, "You got that right, brother!" Then I jizzed in my pants.

    The picture is somewhere at my parents house, if I ever find it I will post it here.

    This was pre "Hogan Knows Best", so that's why I didn't recognize Brooke and Linda. So perhaps Linda wasn't lying when she said Hulk never let her spend money on clothes. Wal-Mart ffs!

    That's my story, hope you enjoyed it. He is definitely the most famous person/wrestler I've ever met. My wife once hugged Bret Hart, but that's another story for another day.

  6. It's unbelievable how big of a human he is. He was sitting on one of those park bench looking things they have at stores. He took up more than half.
  7. Re: RE: How I met the Hulkster!

    I think most wrestlers have that effect tbh, even the smaller guys tend to be above average size (irish midgets not included)
  8. Depends on who. Saw Christian walking downtown during WM X8 week, and he wasn't much bigger than me.
  9. Billy gunn is freakishly massive when I saw him
  10. Awesome story, brother, Jack, dude. :hogan:

    Seriously though, very cool experience and nice story. Glad he was so friendly and polite about letting you take a photo and all, too. :)

  11. I think as long as your respectful and not a douche, they're generally friendly back.
  12. Exactly. To me, that's the key thing. Simple rules to go by -- mind your manners, be polite, ask nicely, don't be a douche (even if they say no). Too many rude people complain about people being assholes to them, and they wonder why. lol
  13. Say your prays, eat your vitamins, eat tutti frutti.
  14. Awesome story man.
  15. Very Cool Experience and Nice Story man. I really hope you find that photo I would like to see as all of us would.
