SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Wrestling legend Hulk Hogan is in the Bay Area to promote WrestleMania 31 at Levi's Stadium next March. Tickets are on sale this Saturday at 9 a.m. KGO viewers can use the code "ABCKGO" to access an exclusive pre-sale on Ticketmaster through Friday.
Hogan lives in Florida and ABC7's Mike Shumann went to Florida State, and it turns out the state wasn't big enough for the both of them. When ABC7's Larry Beil asked the Hulkster about how he felt about Shu and his Super Bowl ring, Hulk had a special message for Shu.
"You know something, brother?" he said. "When I hit the Bay Area my back cracked, my liver quivered, and my knees freezed (sic), brother I couldn't get to sleep at all last night because I was having these nightmares over and over and over and I couldn't figure it out. And the next thing I did when I went to go to the bathroom, I looked under the door at my hotel room. And this was under the door -- a picture of Mike Shumann. And I knew right away he was pitching that same old story, flashing that same old ring, talking about playing for the 49ers back in the day. Well, let me tell you something brother, that guy couldn't' even lace up the 49ers' boots today. No, you're not like Hulk Hogan that can walk into the main event at WrestleMania 31 and tear the whole arena down, brother. Mike Shumann, you are ghost in a blast from the past, brother. Never again will the 49ers let you in Levi's Stadium. Never again will Mike Shumann never mention the name 49ers. And all I got to say dude, is if you say 49ers one more time, or you show that ring to my brother from another brother -- what you going to do when Hulk Hogan and the largest arms in the world destroy you!"
WrestleMania 31 takes place at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara on Sunday, March 29. Tickets are on sale this Saturday at 9 a.m. KGO viewers can use the code "ABCKGO" to access an exclusive pre-sale on Ticketmaster through Friday.
