Not sure what’s worse: this dude thinking Hulk Hogan somehow shrunk down to 5’9″, lost all muscle tone and sprouted tufts of gray back hair, or the fact that Hulkster’s rep for doing lowbrow appearances — and never breaking character — made this seem possible.
As you can see in the pics below, plenty of other tourists have run into Abu Dhabi Hulk Hogan. We haven’t found a Twitter, Facebook or Insty profile for the guy — nor do we know what has to go wrong in your life to decide to impersonate an aging wrestler when you are living in a desert oasis — but we’d love to know more about him.
Email us if you know something we can add to his curious story.
