“Whatcha gonna do when the Neonmaniacs run wild?” Hulk Hogan asks on a selfie video while purportedly on a cruise with RiFF RAFF, concluding with “(undecipherable).”
We’re really not sure. We hadn’t exactly planned for any of this. Definitely thinking it’s a good idea to put together a preparation kit though, because this RiFF RAFF and Hulk Hogan thing might actually be happening...
"Neon Icon rapper RiFF RAFF is trying to become a professional wrestler, and he's enlisted the help of 12-time World Champion and Rocky III star Hogan to help him beef up. (His goal is a bulky 240 pounds.)”
"Hogan sounds excited about helping RiFF RAFF fulfill his dream of getting the crap beaten out of him in the ring, and the two have shared various videos of Hulk spouting words of encouragement and advice. Or, at least, that's what we think they are? To be totally honest, most of what he's saying is utterly incompressible, but here's hoping that RiFF RAFF is able to learn from it.
Incomprehensible perhaps, but learn from it? RiFF RAFF is the living legend nobody expected and many never thought to ask for. He’s worked with major producers (such as Diplo), released major records and basically had James Franco portray him in a Hollywood movie, all the while being completely outrageous. This step into the ring (even at this stage) is the next logical step of what RiFF RAFF has been doing so well for so long.
If you're not convinced, think about how similar this all sounds to Andy Kaufman. But either way, this was a collaboration waiting to happen. Basically, we couldn't have asked for more. Jody Three Moons continues to show us "how to be the man." Train on.
