Last week, wrestler Bully Ray got down on one knee and proposed to Brooke Hogan in front of her father Hulk Hogan, a live audience, and the millions watching at home. Needless to say, Hulk was not happy about it, and he told Bully that he’s not the man for his daughter. Pro wrestling level drama ensued, and poor Brooke was caught in the middle. But she has since decided to go ahead with the wedding and the lovely couple is set to marry tonight in a televised ceremony during TNA Impact Wrestling — at least if Hulk doesn’t put a stop to it first.
During the show last Thursday, Bully tried to win Hulk over with his words after Hulk told him that he wasn’t for real. “I never thought I’d love anything more than I loved pro wrestling, and then your daughter came in my life,” he told Brooke’s dad. “You know what the crazy thing is? She came into my life because she was apologizing for you being such a hard a** with me and for you not trusting me even when I had your brother’s back until the end.”
After pleading with her father for acceptance, Bully turned to Brooke and put his emotions out on the table. “I’m a hard a**, but with you, things are different. You make me laugh,” he said before going to his knees and presenting a shocked Brooke with a ring. More shocked (of course) was Hulk who was still standing there looking as if he wanted to
stab Bully with a knife hit him over the head with a folding chair — but that didn’t stop Bully. After Brooke accepted his proposal, he went on to say, ”Not only do I want you to marry me, I want to do it next week in front of everybody.”
Now, wrestling isn’t exactly a sport known for it’s authenticity, but Bully seemed pretty sincere. And what says “I’m ready for marriage” more than a wild party at a strip club on the night before your wedding? Nothing. So that’s exactly what Bully arranged for Wednesday night. He and friends headed to Rick’s Cabaret in New York City for a wild night filled with booze and strippers!
The bachelor party was so important to Bully that he even had the venue issue a press release about it!
NEW YORK CITY, Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ – Wrestler Bully Ray got down on his knees last week to propose to Hulk Hogan’s daughter Brooke Hogan. Much to her father’s dismay, she said yes and they are due to marry on Thursday, January 17, during the TNA Impact Wrestling Show on Spike TV. But not before Ray throws himself a bachelor party at Rick’s Cabaret/NYC, ranked by Playboy.com as the #1 strip club in Manhattan and part of the publicly traded Rick’s Cabaret International, Inc. group of 35 clubs around the country.
Bully Ray says he is sparing no expense for the bachelor party and has booked the famous Crystal Room of the three-story club, which is just down the street from Madison Square Garden. “I could have had my bachelor party anywhere in the world, but I chose Rick’s Cabaret because they have the hottest women, gourmet food and the best booze,” he said. Bully Ray said many of his wresting star friends, rock ‘n roll musicians and show business pals will attend. He added that he invited Hulk Hogan, but his future father-in-law declined.
“We’re geared up for the ultimate bachelor party and will have plenty of vintage cigars that the guys can light up on our rooftop smoking deck,” said Ken Sistrunk, general manager of the club.
The wedding is scheduled to take place January 17th during the 8 p.m. show on Spike TV. TNA Impact Wrestling is seen in over 100 countries.
Bully Ray’s romance with Ms. Hogan has played out on television over the past several weeks, culminating last week in his proposal to her in the middle of the wrestling ring. The proposal – and Hulk Hogan’s angry reaction to it – became a YouTube sensation as it went viral within hours.

So will you be tuning in tonight for the big wedding extravaganza? My guess is that Hulk is going to show up with photos and/or video from Bully’s bachelor party and bust up the ceremony, as well as Bully’s head!
