As much as it kills me to say this – MTB needs Hulk Hogan!
How a sport, which hides under the moniker of sports entertainment and is completely fixed, becomes the most watched spectacle on South African TV is still a question which baffles me to say the least.
But then I started thinking – it all makes perfect sense. Wrestling has a lot of spandex-adorned characters like John Cena, CM Punk and even the legendary Hulk Hogan – people identify with the characters. If cycling managed to produce some larger-than-life personalities – minus the steroid abuse and ladder matches – it would really ignite a bigger interest in the sport.
Maybe, we should try get the Hulkster to attend the CXM 1/2 Marathon on the 24th of January at Barberton and give the people some body-slamming action.
P.S. You gotta admit that was a great way to plug the event on the 24th of January
