Signed Hulk Hogan Boot Stolen
TMZ have obtained CCTV footage from Hulk Hogan’s Beach Shop in Florida, of a group of women stealing a signed wrestling boot.
In the video, you can see the women make their way into the Shop … and then congregate around the front desk clerk. Then something happens outside and the clerk, followed by four women, leaves the store to investigate.
But cameras pick up one of the women walking back into the store, walking straight to the back of the store, snatching the boot … and calmly walking out. Cops described the woman as “a heavyset female in her 50s.”
Speaking of Hogan he’s teasing that he’ll be getting physically involved at Wrestlemania:
Carlos Colon Inducted As Part of Tape Library Deal
According to the Wrestling Observer Carlos Colon’s WWE Hall of Fame induction is part of a deal to acquire the WWC tape library.
The feeling is that by giving Colon exposure in the Hall of Fame, it will make the footage more marketable to both domestic and Spanish speaking fans singing up to the WWE Network, when it’s eventually made available.
Though Colon will continue to operate WWC, he’ll essentially be handing over the promotion’s history. Apparently he’s in some financial trouble.
It may seem like an odd deal, but he can make more money selling the library to WWE than utilizing it himself.
There is some internal controversy that Colon is being inducted – especially now that it seems like a political deal for the tape library – because a lot of veterans believe he covered up for the murder of Bruiser Brody, which took place backstage in WWC.
