Hulk Hogan urges Celebrity Big Brother bosses to splash the cash

Hulk Hogan has confirmed 'Celebrity Big Brother' bosses have been calling him for "several years" and he would be tempted to go into the house if they made a big money offer
Hulk Hogan would sign up for 'Celebrity Big Brother' if the producers made him a big money offer.
The wrestling legend was heavily rumoured to be a potential contestant on the last series of the reality show which had a UK versus US theme but ultimately he didn't enter the house.
Hulk has now confirmed that 'CBB' bosses keep asking him to be a housemate and he admits for the right price he would consider coming across the pond to take part.
He said: "'Big Brother' have called for several years now. I don't know, first off you can never say never."
When asked if a big money offer could persuade him to sign on the dotted line, he added: "Hey, if you want me to be on 'Big Brother' tomorrow, I'll be in there tomorrow if you put $50 million in my bank account! You know what I'm saying, money is always a part of the decision making process."
If he did enter the 'CBB' house, Hulk would be worried about living with lots of young "wound up" stars who inevitably end up dominating the show.
But the 62-year-old star has already devised a plan to cope with the chaos if he ever accepts the invitation to appear.
Speaking to BANG Showbiz, he said: "If I was going to jump on that lightning bolt and come over there for 'Big Brother' I would just have to act like it was New Year's Eve, or something like that, every day. I'd have to have that mindset to get in that house with all those young people who are all wound up. I would have to be leaning forward and be right on my toes."
The grappling icon is coming to the UK this month for his 'An Evening With Hulk Hogan' show at Sheffield Arena on November 14.
Hulk will be participating in an open Q&A that night and in the day at the event he will be meeting his fans to pose for photos and sign autographs along with fellow wrestling legends Jimmy Hart, Bushwacker Luke, Tugboat and Lanny Poffo.
The former WWE star can't wait to meet his British Hulkamaniacs and has promised that the Q&A will be "totally uncensored".
He said: "To come over and get to talk to the fans and shake their hands is going to be awesome. They can ask me anything they want and that's exciting for me, the Q&A session will be totally uncensored. It's going to be a lot of fun because the energy of the audience comes into play and the tempo for how it goes will decide whether I'm going to stay for an hour longer or two hours longer. It's going to be crazy!"
