Chris Hemsworth as Hogan and Bradley Cooper as Flair?
Ahead of his return to Monday Night Raw tonight for his 70th birthday bash, WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair made an appearance on "TMZ Live" to discuss a number of wrestling-related topics. Among them, the upcoming Hulk Hogan biopic, which will star Chris Hemsworth as the Hulkster.
When asked who he wants to play him in Todd Philips' new movie, Flair took a second to think before his wife, Wendy, blurted out, "Bradley Cooper."
Seems like The Nature Boy approved of that suggestion.
According to WWE, Flair will be in the building at State Farm Arena in Atlanta tonight, as will several other yet-to-be-announced WWE icons. Additionally, WWE superstar Roman Reigns will be providing an update on his battle with leukemia, making tonight's episode a must-watch for wrestling fans of all ages.
The preview for Monday's episode reads:
"Join Monday Night Raw for Ric Flair’s 70th birthday celebration on Feb. 25. Happy birthday to “Woooooo!” WWE will celebrate the 70th birthday of iconic two-time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair on the Feb. 25 edition of Monday Night Raw.
