LONDON – The immortal Hulk Hogan issued a challenge to Bond director Sam Mendes today after Mendes decided against casting Hogan in an undisclosed role in the upcoming Bond 24.
“All my little Hulkamaniacs know the Hulkster is a man of his word but you Sam Mendes, you broke your word,” said an angry Hogan:
I came here today for one reason, to call you out Sam Mendes, to take you to task and when we step in the squared circle on December 14, pay-per-view, Madison Square Gardens. I’m gonna’ make you sing Sam Mendes, sing the power of the Hulkster, because this freak of nature right here is just beginning to swell, and when I get big enough, brother, there ain’t gonna’ be room for anybody else but me and all the Hulkamaniacs floating through my veins. So what you gonna’ do Sam Mendes, what you gonna’ do, when the largest arms in the world and Hulkamania, runs wild on you!
Sam Mendes was unavailable for comment as he is currently rehearsing a production of Chekov’s The Seagull at the National Theatre in London. However, he did issue this statement:
I am the dream killer, Hogan, the reaper of souls, the master puppeteer on the stage of fools. I am the only one who can see the big picture, the grand design. So take your bleeding heart somewhere else. I am the master of the house, I pull the strings around here. So I don’t care who the hell you are. If you’re in my way, you will get taken down, taken down to Chinatown.
Mendes vs Hogan will be live on HBO on December 14.
