The Hulk Talks About Nick Hogan’s Time In Prison | Celeb Gossip, Celeb News and Celeb Pictures by I'm Not Obsessed
Hulk Hogan sat down with Michael You and opened up about his son Nick and his time in prison. When Yo asks how he dealt with the pressure of Nick being in jail and going through a divorce, Hogan says: "You know I just had to regroup and you know just really rely on what was in my heart and what I believe in, 'cause Nick is my son 24 hours a day whether he hits a homerun or whether he strikes out, he's still my son. You know Linda says because she was visiting in LA, she's not responsible in any way shape or form for what happened. Well that's not me." When asked what Nick learned from his incarceration, Hogan says: "He was on a roll. He was a young professional driver, he had the show going, and it all got real busy and then I think when he went to jail, he got stripped of everything. He got stripped of clothes, of watches, he got stripped of his identity, and he found out what's important in life. He knows what's real, and what's not real. And even before he went in there he was accountable, and he was responsible. And I think that's what he found out in jail, the most important thing, he understands what is real in life. You know it's about helping people, being positive, moving forward. He was a good kid before, he's a great kid now. He's not the same man he was when he went in there." Being stripped of his watch must have been terrible! All jokes aside, I hope Nick is a changed person. That's the whole point of incarcination isn't it?

Prison hulk Dolphin
Hi everyone My apologies if I have posted this in the wrong place and if I have I will thank the moderator in advance for moving it. I have just discovered that my ancestor Peter Alcock was sent to the Prison hulk Dolphin before his transportation to Australia in 1830. I am aware of the details of his trial and his transportation on the Marquis of Huntley, and am wondering whether the Prison hulk register gives any further details. Is there anyone who has access to the details who can help
