Pic: Hulk Hogan 'feels safe' thanks to big hug from Ronda Rousey

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Poor Hulkster.

Former WWE champion Hulk Hogan was dumped by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) -- a company he helped put on the map nearly 30 years ago -- after audio surfaced of N-word mania running wild. That's right, the man whose theme song was "Real American" was caught spewing racist remarks.

Oh, the irony.

That said, not everybody was quick to throw him under the bus. Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz -- who's been known to dabble in the land of make believe -- came to the Hulkster's side shortly after things went to pot.

See those comments here.

Then out of the blue, Hogan tweeted this picture of UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey hugging a stuffed version of himself. "Rowdy" is not far removed from her UFC 190 win over Bethe Correia (watch it), but also appeared at WrestleMania back in April.
