– Gene Kiniski is still hospitalized in Bellingham, WA, battling pneumonia and undergoing chemotherapy treatments for cancer. He has lost a lot of weight, but is resting comfortably and is in amazing spirits, according to a close friend. He said on Saturday night: “What a great life–I wish I could do it all over again, I have been everywhere, and got paid to do it, it is just the sh–ts to go out like this.” He was very sad to hear about the passing of Jack Brisco and joked that you could make up a hell of a territory with all the wrestling talent that came out of Oklahoma.
– Jimmy Hart did an interview talking about going to TNA. He tongue-in-cheek tells the story of how Jerry Lawler once told him that Hulk Hogan would never draw a dime in wrestling. “Technically Lawler is right, because Hogan was Terry Boulder when he said that in Memphis and the Boulder gimmick never did draw a dime. When asked whether he thinks Hogan will wrestle again, he said: “Please, brother. You know he will. Come on, man. Hulk Hogan, I tell him all the time, every time he walks by that ring he gets goosebumps. You know he’s going to. Those boots?ll be back on before long.” (credit: The Wrestling Globe Newsletter)
