Hulk Hogan

Hulk Hogan has taken a bizarre but lighthearted dig at WWE superstar AJ Styles.

The Hall of Famer couldn’t resist a cheeky laugh at his fellow wrestler’s expense this week as he posed for a photo with an apparent lookalike.

Hogan was positively beaming in the snap as he stood with the mystery man, who could be the Phenomenal One in the future.

With long brown hair and a grey beard, we can see the resemblance – but the Hulkster held up a picture of AJ just to make sure.

Sharing the photo on Facebook – and looking very pleased with himself with a shorter hairdo than usual – he quipped: ‘I found #AJStyles brother!!! (sic)’

Honestly, it makes a change to see Hogan on the other side of a tongue in cheek social media putdown.

The Iron Sheik’s social media account is a goldmine of rants – and his former in-ring rival is often the punchline, although one recent insult was something we wouldn’t really wish on anyone, particularly after the year we’ve had.

In his signature all-caps style, Sheik tweeted: ‘THE ONLY THING WORSE THAN 2020 IS HULK HOGAN. (sic)’

Ouch – that really is brutal.

Wrestling fans will know this is pretty much par for the course when it comes to the Iron Sheik and Twitter.

He even tagged folk legend Bob Dylan in a recent cheap shot, which referenced the icon’s track These Times They Are A-Changin’.

The post on his account read: ‘THE @thebobdylan THE TIMES ARE A CHANGIN? OR THE TIMES ARE WORST THAN THE JABRONI HULK HOGAN? F**K THE TIME’.

And it’s safe to say these jibes aren’t going anywhere, because it’s even in his daily planner.

Earlier this month, he wrote: ‘LIFE HACK: I SET THE DAILY REMINDER IN MY CALENDAR TO REMIND ME THAT HULK HOGAN IS A F***ING JABRONI. IT WORKS 100% OF THE TIME.’

Never change, Sheik.
