Reason #310 to Despise Hulk Hogan

He likely received wholly undeserved compensation (albeit a relatively minor amount I'm sure) from Post Cereals as a result of his frivolous "Cocoa Smashdown" lawsuit that we here at Arabian Facebuster dubbed "The Case of Cash Deprived, Tangerine Toned D-Bag."

Report filed by the assuredly sexy and scantily clad action news team from the Hulkster's local (Tampa) Spanish language pop variety FM radio station:
Hulk Hogan no longer has a beef with Cocoa Pebbles.

The celebrity wrestler sued the maker of Cocoa Pebbles cereal, Post Foods LLC, in May claiming that his likeness was being used in an ad without his permission. The St. Petersburg Times reported Wednesday that the suit has been settled.

Hogan - whose real name is Terry Bollea - took issue with a "Cocoa Smashdown" TV ad featuring a blond-haired wrestler with a championship belt and Fu Manchu mustache that bore a striking resemblance to Hogan.

His attorney, Joseph W. Bain, wouldn't disclose the terms of the settlement, but he told the Times that the commercial is no longer being aired and the lawsuit was dismissed Monday.

¡Ay, caramba!

I bet part of the settlement involves Bam Bam Rubble being forced to job to the Hulkster on an upcoming episode of the Impact Zone.
