Hogan and Brutus Beefcake Feud Over Twitter

As if Hulk Hogan didn’t get terrible press as it is. With him, the negative seems to outweigh the positive these days. Let’s just say that this isn’t the type of feud we hoped to see him in. Hogan’s gotten himself in a war of words with Brutus Beefcake.

An outpouring of public shots were taking between the two men over the past few days. Hulk and Brutus (real names Terry Bollea and Ed Leslie) are long-time friends and, obviously, wrestling legends. However, Brutus just announced that he’s written a new book. Unfortunately for Hulk, the book won’t be very kind to the yellow-and-red wrestler.

Hogan responded to the announcement quickly. He told Brutus Beefcake that he’d “better have a good lawyer.” Now, maybe he meant it out of humor, but that seems unlikely. After all, Hulk’s been having a rough time getting the stigma removed from his ongoing legal troubles. Having more issues drawn to the public attention probably is the last thing he wants to deal with right now.

Beefcake would also go on to claim that Hulk stole his ex-wife and caused an irreparable rift between himself and his daughter.

Shots Fired

He’s always been a follower and has no idea how deep the water is his leader is leading him in to brother HH

Beefcake also released an apparent e-mail from his ex-wife regarding Hulk:
“Had a blast with Terry last night and he can’t stand you! You’re trash and he knows it officially off team hogan for life! Ah ha ha ha!”
To add insult, he commented on the e-mail on Twitter as well:
HHangs out with my X wife and bashes me all weekend? Blames it on Titos? Do unto others!
Maybe someone’s guilty because they stabbed me in the back! Not the other way around! Chew on that! I’m out!

…But it doesn’t stop there

Brutus would carry on, despite claiming he was “out.” He quoted one of Hulk’s tweets, one which he thanked God and wanted to pray for those who were “snakes.”

while hanging out with my ex-wife trashing the person who always had your back!? Keep praying to that false God of yours! Jesus is my Savior

Apparently, Brutus’s ex-wife caught wind of their public battle, as he shared a text message from her for the world to read. She says that Hulk is their daughter’s god father, and that Brutus hasn’t bothered to see her in the last 7 years. Therefore, she’s been good friends with Hulk. This seems to enrage Brutus Beefcake, and a quick succession of tweets come out. In each one, he claims that his ex-wife is alienating and brainwashing their daughter, Alana. In fact, Alana re-tweeted Hulk’s comment about Beefcake being a “follower.” Again, that set him off:

Icing on the cake My daughter retweets @hulkhogan insulting me because my X has her brainwashed!

if @hulkhogan we’re a friend he’d stay AWAY from my daughter & x wife! never had time 4 them B4 Mr. POSITIVE this is all to hurt me!

Luckily, it looks like the feud has simmered a little. However, it may very well pick right back up again just as quickly as it began. We’ll keep an eye on this horrible but very intriguing spat.
