Michael Woodard passed on this article from Australia:


THE Hulkamania promotional press conference at Star City veered violently out of control today as Hulk Hogan and ring rival Ric Flair let their animosity break into a full scale bloody brawl.

Sydney Central’s photographer Phil Rogers has his flash broken when Ric Flair threw a table off the stage and into the press gathering before diving on photographers.

Media were stunned as the Hulk’s head began bleeding profusely and confusion broke out when the veteran wrestling star was unable to get to his feet.

This reporter narrowly missed being struck with the table and photographers ducked and weaved as Ric Flair took off his trouser belt and began to whip anyone within range.

The press conference began well with the stars of the tour speaking professionally about their careers and the business.

Hulk Hogan was excited to be touring Australia for the first time.

The Hulkamania tour hits Sydney’s Acer Arena on November 28.

The wrestling extravaganza comes to WA on Tuesday, November 24, at Burswood Dome, starting at 7.30pm. Tickets from Ticketek 132 849 or http://www.ticketek.com.au
