Video: Linda Hogan comments on Hulk Hogan's drug use, says she feared for her life Jun 28, 2011 - 09:28 AM
Dot Net reader Mark Christie saw Linda Hogan's appearance on NBC's "Today" to promote her book "Wrestling with The Hulk." Mark sent the following report.
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.
She 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. Ugh! Lauer then concluded the interview by plugging the book.
Overall, Linda came across as very self absorbed. She took no responsibility for her divorce, placing all the blame on Hogan. Watching her saying that Nick's sentence was too harsh was truly nauseating. It seems that in her eyes, Nick is the golden child who can do no wrong. She showed no concern for Graziano, or his family. Hopefully, her book will be in the dollar bin soon.
Powell's POV: The book is available today. You can watch the full video of Linda's NBC appearance at Today.com.
