I keep forgetting to put this up, it’s a few days old now, but if you haven’t heard it yet, AOL has a phone conversation between Nick Hogan and Hulk Hogan, recorded while Nick is in jail, where they essentially say John Grazianos negative attitude is the reason that John is in a permanent vegetative state. You may think the reason he is in a coma is because Nick Hogan had a few beers and raced his car down the street and smashed into a telephone poll, but no, it was because John sometimes yelled at people.
HULK: I don’t know what type of person John was, or what he did to get himself in this situation, I know he was pretty aggressive, and he used to yell at people and he used to do stuff, and, for some reason man, God laid some heavy shit on that kid, man, I don’t know what he was into... NICK: John was a negative person.HULK: He was what?NICK: He was a negative person.
After that, the conversation cuts to them talking about how to make Nick the most money possible out of this situation. It's like that old saying, "when life hands you lemons, put the lemon in a fucking coma. Then you can sell it for money."
(if you're not making a fist right now, try listening to the tape again while looking at this picture of John in his hospital bed. WARNING - this picture is pretty awful)
HOGAN DRIVING UPDATE – and as several have pointed out, Brooke Hogan was in a two car crash over the weekend in Tampa. At least this time, it doesn’t seem to have been her fault, and the Hogan family didn't leave anyone with life ending injuries (more on TMZ here, picture source = splash news online).
