R.I.P. Hollywood Hulk Hogan, August 11, 1953 - April 1, 2007

So why do I believe that the immortal Hulkster will die at Wrestle Mania 23 in front of a crowd of 78,000 Hulkamaniacs and a worldwide television audience of tens-of-millions? Simple, Vince and Stephanie McMahon both know that Hogan will die before he finally retires, so what would get rid of that 53-year-old egomaniac and spike the rating upwards for RAW, Smack Down and ECW more than Hogan actually dieing in a match at the hands of a man with a prior reputation for causing in-ring deaths called "The Great Khali" Dalip Singh. I have nothing against either Hogan or Khali, but I would pay Sky Box Office's asking price of £14.99 to watch Khali kill Hogan in a manner similar to that of Ivan Drago's destruction of Apollo Creed in the film Rocky IV, and so would millions of others too.
Feel free to leave your tributes to the soon-to-be late Terry Bollea in the Comments section.
