Flair leaves Hulk a bloody mess

November 18th, 2009 by

www.thesun.co.uk– RIC FLAIR left fellow wrestling legend Hulk Hogan a bloody mess as the pair kicked off their tour of Australia.
In a staged fight — known as a ‘work’ among wrestling fans — The Nature Boy busted open the Hulkster with a flurry of punches after the two traded insults about their failed love lives.

It is thought Hogan, 56, ‘bladed’, cutting himself to start a flow of blood which then ended up all over his face and white T-shirt.

News outlets in Australia were unsure what to make of the incident, with many of them reporting it as a serious bust-up.

The two icons of the wrestling business are headlining the HulkaMania: Let The Battle Begin tour Down Under.

The match-up between the pair is eagerly anticipated, especially since the Hulkster has never wrestled in Australia during his 31-year career.

Hulk — who recently divorced wife Linda — said: “The fans here have stuck with me through the highs and lows.

“In the last couple of years my personal life got flipped upside-down and the fans stayed with me through everything, so what better place to start over than right here.”

Sixty-year-old Flair — who last week got married for the fourth time — said of the match: “Two guys are going to walk down that aisle.

“One will walk back. I’ve never, ever not made it back down that aisle.”

Others on the tour include former WWE superstars Rikishi, The Nasty Boys, Shannon Moore, Umaga, Mr Kennedy and Val Venis.

Once the tour is finished, Hogan is off to work for TNA.

There are rumours that Flair — who supposedly ‘retired’ from wrestling at the 2008 WrestleMania — will follow him.
