Linda Hogan hints at affair

Did Hulk Hogan have a gay relationship with a fellow wrestler? Linda Hogan is implying he did.

Linda Hogan hints at affair

Linda Hogan is making a startling accusation about her ex-husband Hulk Hogan. She says -- without outright saying it -- that the legendary wrestler had an affair with his BFF Ed "Brutus Beefcake" Leslie.

Rumors that something was going on between Hulk Hogan and Brutus have been floating around WWE fandom for years -- the pair were frequently together at promotional events despite Brutus' limited success in the ring as "The Barber" -- and Linda sort of confirmed it during a radio appearance.

When asked about the rumor on Matty P's Radio Happy Hour, Linda laughed and chose her word carefully.

"Wow, I don't know how to answer this, so I don't end up getting a lawsuit," she said. "A little bird told me, 'Yes they think they did.'"

Of course, you can't sue someone for slander if what you're saying about them is true. Linda Hogan also has a book to pimp and a bone to pick with her ex. At the same time, Hulk is no stranger to sexual rumors: His relationship with Brooke Hogan has been questioned for years. Let's file this rumor under: Undertermined.
