Another Article on the Latest Hogan Saga

Hulk Hogan family saga not a pretty sight

It's a good thing Hulk Hogan's reality show is no longer on the air. They'd most likely have to change the title from "Hogan Knows Best" to something along the lines of "Hogan Doesn't Have A Clue."

Unlike the world of pro wrestling, where characters and storylines are in the relatively safe hands of fantasy writers, Terry Bollea, aka the Hulkster, has found his life of late exposed for the world to see. And it's not very pretty.

Also unlike the world of pro wrestling, Hogan is finding it increasingly difficult to spin the situation and manipulate the media. He's been a master at that aspect his entire wrestling career, but even Hogan hasn't been able to play the press this time around.

The latest sordid chapter in the ongoing Hogan family saga, of which there have been many, is the release of the Nick Hogan prison tapes. Hogan's 17-year-old son recently was sentenced to eight months in jail after pleading no contest to reckless driving stemming from an incident last August. The passenger in his car, John Graziano, was left with a much harsher sentence — confined to a lifetime of medical care with massive brain damage and in a permanent vegetative state.

Authorities say Hogan was street racing his father's modified 1998 Toyota Supra when he struck a curb, spun in traffic and slammed into a palm tree near downtown Clearwater, Fla. Hogan, who was not seriously hurt, had alcohol in his system at the time of the crash.
