Former Kendall resident OJ Simpson and former Miami Beach resident Hulk Hogan probably could have been friends during the time in Miami-Dade, because Hogan seems to think they both have a lot in common.
In a recent interview with once-relevant music magazine Rolling Stone, the wrestler let it be known that he understood how OJ Simpson could have killed his wife (even if he didn't according to a jury of his peers).
"I could have turned everything into a crime scene, like OJ, cutting everybody's throat," he told the magazine.
"You live half a mile from the 20,000-square-foot home you can't go to anymore, you're driving through downtown Clearwater and see a 19-year-old boy driving your Escalade, and you know that a 19-year-old boy is sleeping in your bed, with your wife . . . I totally understand OJ. I get it."
Delightful. In the interview Hogan also exposes on another Miami-based bold face named: Mickey Rourke and his recent turn in The Wrestler.
