Hulk Hogan Is Starting a Little-People Wrestling League on TruTV

Hulk HoganToday in "This is an actual, real-life news story" comes this gem of an article from The Hollywood Reporter: Hulk Hogan has signed on to mentor little-people wrestlers for a new TruTV series called 'Hulk Hogan's MCW.'

The new professional league that Hogan is creating, Micro Championship Wrestling, "aims to 'show the world that little people are serious athletes who have the determination to succeed,'" according to THR. Hogan will be involved in recruitment, training, mentoring and establishing the league as a viable business.

TruTV has ordered six episodes of the new show, which is scheduled to premiere this summer. Hogan is an executive producer on the series.

This isn't Hogan's only project in development; in September, he announced that he was working on a kids' show called 'Hogan's Court,' in which he would decide cases involving sibling arguments. (Think "Is my sister taking too much time in the bathroom?" and other such disputes.)

"I am really looking forward to developing such an entertaining series with great production partners," Hogan said in a statement at the time. "We want this to be one of those rare shows that kids and their families can watch together and all find something to laugh about."

'Hogan's Court' does not yet have a network or premiere date.

Tell us: Will you watch 'Hulk Hogan's MCW' this summer? What other strange premises do you have for potential Hogan reality shows?

Are children allowed into the league? No. It's not "little people." It's "midgets". I don't care if someone finds that offensive. It's descriptive. Just say "midget wrestling" and everyone will know what you're talking about.
