yep, that story gets more outrageous each time Hogan tells it. Hogan also claimed he was in on the Andy Kaufman vs Jerry Lawler feud via suggestion for matches and other angles (I do believe that he stole the "Hollywood" gimmick from Kaufman later on for his heel turn in WCW). Another Hogan whopper was that he was in the running for the bass guitarist spot for Metallica. He's had several tall tales in various interviews.
