Hulk Hogan could probably go on for days about how much his son, Nick, has changed since entering jail. Out of the eight month sentence that he received, Nick only served 166 days. He was released early on good behavior credits. That was a decision that was not in the control of the Graziano family or the police department.
Hulk tells us how he coped with his son’s arrest, saying, “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.” He added, “Whether he hits a home run, or whether he strikes out, he’s still my son.”
And no opportunity like the present to take a dig at his estranged wife Linda. He says, “You know. Linda says because she was visiting in L.A., she’s not responsible in any way, shape or form what happened. Well, that’s not me.”
If memory serves me correctly, Hulk was the one that bought the beer for Nick. He purchased the alcohol for his underage son, I’d say that makes him more responsible than Linda, who’s only fault is birthing that douche.
Of Nick’s arrest, Hulk 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 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 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 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.”
He was accountable? Saying that John Graziano was a negative person? That sounded to me like he placed one-hundred percent of the blame on John’s head.
