    Okay, I saw this commercial on Boomerang OnDemand (ftw btw) and obviously knew that Bulk Boulder was a sendup of Hogan. But I thought parody was free speech in the U.S. And if he's alleging in his suit that he ever once used the name Hulk Boulder, he's lying! At closest he was Terry Boulder, alias The Hulk, alias the guy who would one day be pathetically vain and known primarily for the lawsuits he'd been part of.

    Bottom line, though, is that this easily exploitable situation could be a lot better for Hogan's bottom line than the whole Australian tour. [​IMG] In your opinion, should he be taking advantage of it like this?

    I dont know whether he SHOULD or not but apparently he is haha.

    I dont get what the big deal is but I'm not a popular wrestling like Hogan is.

    He's not so much as suing as attempting to gain all the money he can before he fades back out of the spotlight thanks to the massive failure TNA is becoming.

    KSpiceFantastic Haters gonna hate.

    Poor Boomerang. They really don't look the same, in my opinion, but regardless, a lawsuit is a lawsuit.

    I'm not sure if parody laws allow that or not - a parody of a real person is different than a parody of their creation, and they're using this for commercial purposes.

    I think he has a decent chance of winning this.

    All I'm going to say is that he really must need money badly, lol.

    This is absolutely ridiculous! Shame on the Hulkster! Is he so desperate for attention that he would go this far to get it? This lawsuit should never have been conceived in the first place! Absolutely and totally ridiculous! Come on man, there are other ways of getting attention.........s********!:mad:
