Hulk Hogan Fights For His Family

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Hulk Hogan is using his new gladiator gig to fight for the future of his family.

Hogan – the world-renowned wrestler and head of the household on Hogan Knows Best – is co-hosting American Gladiators with Dancing With The Stars alum Laila Ali, but the mustachioed muscleman says you won’t find him wrangling in the ring with any of the contestants.

Hogan says, “At 54 years old, with my fake knee and fake hip, I know my limitations. It’s a lot more fun watching than getting kicked in the head!”

And while the Hulkster won’t be getting into American Gladiators garb, the show is helping him fight through his recent publicized family troubles, including the split from his wife, Linda, and his son Nick’s arrest for reckless driving following a high-speed car crash which left his passenger paralyzed.

Hogan says, “The show gave me a chance to have an outlet and keep my mind off negative things. I’m hoping and praying my family gets back on track.”

American Gladiators premieres Jan 6 on NBC.
