Hulk Hogan Says He Ended Brooke's Engagement, Blames Stephanie For 'Silverdome' Gaffe
Source: 105.3 The FanHulk Hogan appeared on Dallas radio station 105.3 The Fan on August 1 to promote WrestleMania 30 airing on NBC this Sunday. During his interview, Hogan commented on the failed relationship between his daughter Brooke and Cowboys offensive lineman Phil Costa.
"I love the Dallas Cowboys…been a fan forever but my daughter was engaged to one of those guys and he didn't walk the walk and talk the talk," Hogan said. "I put a bullet in that really quick, because there's no way my daughter's gonna marry someone that I don't like that got me mad or has gotten in my face. So there was a little run-in and it was with only one of the Cowboys. But you know what? He knew better than to step up because he'd get slammed just like Andre the Giant."
Hogan also recounted on his infamous gaffe at WrestleMania 30 when he referred to the Superdome as "The Silverdome":
"Let me blame Stephanie McMahon one more time because I keep putting this on her. Y'know, there's a 'go position' when you go out…right before you go out of the curtain you go out, there's a go position, there's Vince McMahon, all the executives, all the TV monitors and the headsets…running all the technical stuff. Well, they made me come 20 minutes early, usually you go out there and find early which is when you walk out, and When I get there, I was a little nervous label impact, way away from the 'go position' and there was a press conference and all the media, 'What's Andre like?' 'Is there really going to be a memorial battle royal every year in honor of Andre?' 'Was he a nice guy?' 'How hard was it to slam him?' Andre this, Andre that… 'Go back to the go position! Go out to the ring!' And all I had on my mind was the Silverdome and Andre the Giant and I'm going to blame Stephanie McMahon for that because she should have been doing the press conference but she didn't have her makeup all the way on so I had to do it…But I did say 'the Silverdome' in the Superdome."
