Hulk Hogan sues car dealership over catchphrases

Reported by Adam Martin of

The Hollywood Reporter is featuring an article regarding TNA Wrestling’s Hulk Hogan filing a lawsuit against Southland Imports and Suntrup Automotive Group in the St. Louis area over a commercial that, “warns unwary car buyers of getting “body slammed” over bad deals and that invites customers “tired of wrestling for a good deal.” The lawsuit filed on Tuesday in Florida District Court alleges that the defendant violated Hogan’s likeness and implied an endorsement by imitating his voice and using his catch phrases.

And what catch phrases does Hogan claim in the lawsuit to have popularized?

* The heavy use of “brother” to refer to one’s acquaintances

* Pointing to one’s own muscles and referring to them as “guns” (Watch out, Ron Burgundy)

* Reference to fans as “Hulkamaniacs”

    the sad thing is, for the same price that company paid for it’s stand-iun Hogan, they probably could’ve gotten the real deal if they’d only called him.
