Brooke Hogan recently gave a positive health update on her father, Hulk Hogan. Growing up as the son of a famous and controversial wrestler like the Hulkster has led to some family growing pains.

Brooke recently talked to Hollywood Raw and shared her thoughts on what life in the public eye has been like. She talks about Hulk’s handling of controversy. She also said that her father always takes the high road in difficult situations.

“Our family has been through a lot of crap, and I will say, my dad, it’s hard to have all your skeletons pulled out of your closet and just waved in front of everybody’s face and humiliated to the world. And then our family just goes through all this stuff. He has stayed so graceful through it all. I talked to him yesterday. I said, ‘It has to be so hard for you because it’s like you’ve got so many people poking at you, poking at you, poking at you, and you can never poke back. You can never say, yeah, I messed up, but this person did this too.’ You just can’t ever throw shade back because then it just makes you look worse when people are.”

Despite her very public family issues, Brooke Hogan says her father handles it gracefully. That’s up for debate, but she did share her opinion on the matter. Brooke thinks her dad handles difficulty like a gentle giant.


“It’s so hard. He always has to take the high road. He always has to just sit down, shut up, follow the rules, not piss anybody off. So it’s hard to have that control and just always remain graceful in the worst situation. So, he’s real. He’s like, ‘Hey, this is how I messed up,’ or, ‘This is how I’m feeling.’ He communicates and he’s, like I said, just a gentle giant.”

Recently, Brooke Hogan has been trying to launch a country music career. Hulk Hogan has been the subject of speculation about his health. Brooke did state that recent surgical procedures have Hogan on the road to recovery. Given her opinions on the topic of her family, it looks like she’ll stick by her dad until the end.
