Hulk Hogan has a lot of things to brag about. He had a successful wresting career, his own reality television show and has appeared in several television shows and films. In spite of all these accomplishments, he prefers to brag about the fact that he broke up his daughter’s engagement.
Hogan’s daughter Brooke was engaged to former Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman Phil Costa. Costa proposed to Brooke in 2013 and photos of the engagement went viral.
The couple seemed to be happy and many people were surprised when Brooke announced that the engagement has been broken off and that she was no longer dating Costa.

Rumors about the reason for the breakup varied, but Hulk Hogan has allegedly admitted that he is the real reason that the two called it quits. Hogan was overheard talking about Costa and the breakup on a tape.
“I love the Dallas Cowboys, been a fan forever. But, my daughter was engaged to one of those guys and he didn’t walk-the-walk and talk-the-talk,” said Hogan speaking of Costa. “I put a bullet in that really quick. There was no way my daughter was going to marry somebody that I don’t like that got me mad, or has got in my face.”
Hogan had his reasons for not liking Costa, and one of them seems to be the fact that Costa wasn’t intimidated by him.
“There was a little run in with only one of the Cowboys. But you know what, he knew better than to step up cause he would have gotten slammed just like Andre the Giant,” Hogan said about an argument with Costa.

Brooke has always been a daddy’s girl, and if Hogan suggested that she shouldn’t marry Costa, it’s likely that she agreed and called the engagement off to make her father happy.
Do you think Hogan is really the reason Brooke didn’t marry Costa or is he just making it up to sound tough?
