In the video embedded above, Hulk Hogan gives a shout out to Patriots tight end Matthew Mulligan, who purchased a championship wrestling belt from Hogan's Beach Shop, then proclaims his support for the playoff-bound Patriots.
"... I am a Patriots fan," the former WWE wrestling great said in a video that appeared on Facebook Thursday morning. "I love New England, brother. I was the champion for a long time up in your area, brother. But I got something for you. With a world title belt around your waist and hanging in the locker room with the Patriots, you guys got a piece of Hulk Hogan there Jack. Right in New England, you got a piece of Hulk Hogan. And what that means, brother, is if you get tired, or if Brady gets tired, or if anybody's knees wobble, their back cracks, or their liver quivers brother, you can take one of the largest arms in the world, Hulk Hogan's arm, you can strap it to your hips, and you can score as many touchdowns as you want brother. So what are the Patriots gonna do now that they've got Hulk Hogan running with all of you?"
ESPN has more from Mulligan on his link to Hogan.
