It’s hard to believe it took this long for Hulk Hogan to come out with his own line of nutritional products.
Afterall, the Hulkster began telling Hulkamaniacs to “train, say your prayers and eat your vitamins” back in the 1980s.
Decades later, we learn that the wrestling icon will finally be peddling vitamins … and other supplements.
It has just been announced that HoganNutrition.com will launch next month.
Here’s the press release:
WRESTLING GIANT, TERRY BOLLEA, AKA HULK HOGAN INKS DEAL WITH SPORTS NUTRITIONAL INNOVATIONS, INC.
DELRAY BEACH, Florida — Hulk Hogan, known worldwide as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time, has teamed up with Sports Nutritional Innovations, Inc., to bring consumers a new online nutrition store “HoganNutrition.com.”
The site will feature thousands of products and top major brands, making it a one-stop shop where “Hulkamaniacs” can fulfill all their nutritional needs. With the venture, Hogan has partnered with Mitch Gould, CEO of Sports Nutritional Innovations Inc. (SNI).
“HoganNutrition.com will offer the best nutritional supplements in the world at affordable prices,” said Gould.
“I am extremely excited to partner with SNI to help people get the nutritional products and supplements they need to get in shape and build muscle,” Hogan said. “It will not only help people take their vitamins everyday, but give them an easy and affordable way to do so.”
Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, gained popularity in the mid-1980s as a star of the World Wrestling Federation, which is now the WWE. His persona of an all-American athlete was a hit with fans, and he later starred in World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and the New World Order (nWo). He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2005.
Hogan has been involved in a number of successful business ventures, including video games, restaurants, energy drinks and more. HoganNutrition.com is built on both his athletic and business expertise, providing users with the nutritional products they need to reach their physical fitness goals. Catch Hogan on Thursday’s iMPACT on SpikeTV at 9/8c.
“We were thrilled to recruit Mr. Hogan for this venture due to his fame and notoriety,” Gould said. “This is a great opportunity and we look forward to working together on this business venture.”
Gould is a nutritional products marketer with over 25 years of experience in distribution and branding. He has sold products to every major retailer in the U.S. and has worked with the likes of Steven Seagal, Chuck Liddell, Ronnie Coleman and many other professional athletes and celebrities.
