Hulk Hogan: Ruined By Reality TV

April 16, 2009 2:33 PM ET

Hulk Hogan is in chronic pain, but isn't counting out a return to the ring. The superstar wrestler revealed the most intimate parts of what's left of his private life to Erik Hedegaard for a feature in the new issue of Rolling Stone, including how he "could have turned everything into a crime scene, like O.J." after learning his soon-to-be ex-wife Linda had abandoned him (but not his 20,000-square-foot Florida mansion) for a 19-year-old boy her daughter had gone to high school with.

Grab the new issue for Hedegaard's fascinating profile — which features Hulk expounding on the greatness of Mickey Rourke in The Wrestler, recalling his earliest days in the ring and grappling with the prospect of life outside the spotlight — and revisit the Hulk's life from his childhood as a chubby kid named Terry Bollea to the height of Hulkamania, Hulk Knows Best and beyond, in photos. Plus, check out Rob Sheffield's breakdown of eight romances destroyed by reality TV, including Britney & Kevin, Nick & Jessica, Whitney & Bobby and more.
