Hulk Hogan told the CBS Dallas/Fort Worth affiliate on their 105.3 The Fan radio station that he “put a bullet” in Brooke Hogan’s engagement to former Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman Phil Costa. He said not only did he not like Costa but hinted at a physical altercation. Below is an excerpt:
“I love the Dallas Cowboys, been a fan forever. But, my daughter was engaged to one of those guys and he didn’t walk-the-walk and talk-the-talk,” said Hogan, speaking of Costa. “I put a bullet in that really quick. There was no way my daughter was going to marry somebody that I don’t like that got me mad, or has got in my face.”

Brooke’s engagement to Costa actually put a bullet in her career with TNA Wrestling.
As we reported here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com, Brooke received nuclear heat for her public engagement to Costa last summer. At the time TNA was heavily invested in an angle where Brooke was separated from her on-air “husband” Bully Ray. TNA was blindsided by the announcement, causing them to abandon the angle. As we reported here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com Premium, this is one of the reasons why Brooke was released from her contract with the company.
