Well, first bit of shocking news: Turns out, Linda Hogan did not, in fact, fall off the face of the earth as I originally thought/hoped she had. Who knew? Second, she apparently feared for her life during her time with Hulk Hogan, because it turns out being married to a steroid-addled chimp who’s paid to beat the shit out of other equally addled men isn’t such a keen idea.
She writes, “[Hulk] tore my shirt. He threw lamps. He held me down on the bed with his hands around my throat during arguments, slamming doors, pounding walls. I was always afraid he would kill me in one of his rages.” When Matt asked if Hulk ever showed remorse for his actions — Linda replied, “He did not feel remorse — and to this day he’s never apologized for any of his actions.” SOURCE
While I have no doubt that Hulk Hogan probably sucked as a husband, keep in mind, every single person in her family could have just as easily killed her. Seriously, all she had to do was go for a Sunday drive with her son Nick or look at her daughter Brooke in her freakish Medusa face … all I’m saying is, that house was a fucking death trap. Good on her for getting out and dating one of her son’s friends, which is totally not fucking creepy.
