• Author Of Brutus Beefcake’s Book Guesses Why Hulk Hogan Sent Legal Threats To Beefcake Regarding “Tell All” Book
During a recent interview with The Wrestling Estate, Kenny Casanova (co-author of WWF Veteran Brutus Beefcake’s book) had the following to say regarding “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan sending legal threats to Beefcake regarding his “Tell All” book:
“Man, I was on the phone with Hogan’s lawyer for hours. I’m telling you, it was not a work. If it was, then Hogan and Beefcake worked me as the writer and Hogan’s own lawyer. I’ve gotta tell ya, that’s not the case. They sent warnings about making sure the book was clean and free of error, and no added ‘fill-in-the-blanks’ that weren’t correct.
Hogan went through the very public Gawker trial which hurt him as far as looking like some sexual deviant as well as dropping racial slurs. When Beefcake said, ‘Brother, I’m going to put this book out soon and it’s a tell all,’ Hogan got perhaps worried.
You know, when they first started out, they were like rock stars. They were probably all over the place with girls to some degree. Anyway, they’re a bit estranged right now.
At the same time, I believe that the story Hogan was concerned about the most, had something to do with an argument with Beefcake’s wife and him, and none of that is in the book.
That one element, much later in life, isn’t in the book and I think that’s the thing he was most concerned about. But that’s pure speculation on my part. I don’t even know.”
