Hulk Hogan Regrets Investing In Meatball Making Machine

Hulk Hogan continues to claim that he missed out on a lucrative endorsement deal several years ago when he snubbed the idea of endorsing a grilling machine, instead opting for a meatball maker.

The TNA Wrestling Superstar told Avatar star Sam Worthington about his great business regret when the two stars met at last month’s Comic-Con convention in San Diego, California.

Worthington says, “He gave me some investment advice because his manager said to him, ‘You should get into these things, kitchen appliances, put your name on something’.

“The Hulk said, ‘Well, what have you got?’ The manager said, ‘Well, I’ve got this meatball maker… It pounds the meatballs when you (clench arm muscles and press fists together). The Hulk went, ‘That’s fantastic, I want the Hulkamania Meatball Maker!’

“The manager goes, ‘What about the other thing (investment opportunity)?’ He goes, ‘Ah, give that to your other client.’ The other client turned out to be George Foreman, it was the grill! So George Foreman’s made $300 billion and how many people own a Hulkamania Meatball Maker?”

Hogan’s claim differs from the one he made years ago on Hogan Knows Best, where he said he was offered the contract for the grill first, but missed his agent’s phone call because he was “picking up the kids.”

    I think Hogan missed the phone call from the agent because he was busy using cocaine or selling his wife around the locker room.

    This story has the greatest headline I’ve ever seen on this website.

    How come nobody mentioned the fact that on Hogan Knows Best, he endorsed the George Foreman knock-off called the Hulk Hogan Ultimate Grill? Doesn’t anyone remember him doing the info-mercial in his own kitchen?

  • DuffManLovesHimSomeWrestling

  • Satan

    it differs because hogan is full of crap i will always see him as an 80’s and 90’s icon and great for the business back then but as a person and business man he a is a complete joke he is always contradicting himself in interviews maybe the warriors rants are more fact than fiction or mayby the warrior is just a nut either way hogan is full of crap and isnt very bussines smart who the hell would endorse a meatball maker over a tabletop grill unless you eat meatballs everynight you would need the thing a few times a month at most. This is just another example of why hogan needs to be distanced from Tna and wrestling in general

    Who would’ve ever thought that investing in a meatball maker would be a bad idea? A grill is practically useless in comparison.
