TAMPA, Fla. — The Atlanta Falcons may have Ric Flair, but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have their own WWE wrestling legend superfan, Hulk Hogan, who was in attendance for Tuesday’s training camp practice.
Several Bucs players gushed over the chance to meet Hogan, who makes his home in nearby Clearwater, Florida.
“Listen, I’m glad nobody saw that I was shaking,” said defensive end Vinny Curry, who wore a WWE wristband to practice. “That was my childhood hero. … He’s the reason I eat my vegetables and say my prayers. … Take your vitamins and say your prayers, brother!”
Joked defensive end Beau Allen: “I’m calling Vinny before bed to see if he’s keeping up with that stuff!”
Hogan posed for a picture with the two players, saying, “We need to get you guys in the ring.”
