Yabba-Dabba-Sue, says Tampa Bay Online, covering the lawsuit filed by Terry Bollea, better known as Hulk Hogan. Watch the video below, and tell me if you’d want to be in the legal ring with this litigant.
Post’s Flintstones cereal ad used a character that not only looks like the Hulkster, but goes by the similar-sounding name “Hulk Boulder.”
The ABA journal quotes the lawsuit, which contends that Hogan actually wrestled under that exact name early in his career, until wrestling promoter Vince McMahon Sr. suggested that he use an “Irish name.”
McDonald’s recently had a similar difficulty in using the 80’s music group DEVO’s appearance — see Are We Not Ligitants? We are Devo. Given the choice, I’d rather tangle with the old New Wavers than with an aging wrestler, especially given the fact pattern in Hogan’s case.
