"It's going to be Jimmy Buffett's [Margaritaville] times 10; Hooters times 10," Hogan bragged to The Tampa Bay Times. "It's a logical extension of the Hogan brand, with my image and likeness... In 36 years I've become so tangible to the public, and not just Americans. We have a chance to have an international draw."

Sort of like that Hulk Hogan sex tape. We hear it's huge in Germany.

Hogan said he will help run the establishment as a quasi general manager, comparing the gig to the one he's best known for in the professional wrestling world.

"I play a fake general manager on Impact Wrestling. But this is for real."


Hulk Hogan Quotes

I had a real period where I had a tough, tough time. I got caught off guard with this divorce thing. I didn't see it coming. My son is doing better. I pray for my wife every day. I am very grateful because we realize how very blessed we are. Now that we are aware, we are walking in the spirit of God. We are cool. We are way cool.

I was offered lots of [reality] shows when I was making my career comeback against The Rock, but I kept saying no. But years later, it was my daughter’s career and son’s racing career that we were thinking about. We saw the Ashlee Simpson show and Jessica Simpson’s and Lindsay Lohan on the big screen and we just didn’t haven’t a vehicle to compete. But I considered it, because this time it was about the Hogan family rather than Hulk Hogan; they all wanted to do it and I tried to warn them about what they were in for. Now look what happened.
