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.”
