Hulk Hogan: Blackhawks ‘are in a lot of trouble’

What’s a Stanley Cup finalist without a former WWE World Heavyweight Champion in their corner?

The Chicago Blackhawks have wrestler-turned-mixed-martial-artist CM Punk stunting for them online…

…and the Tampa Bay Lightning have none other than six-time WWE Champion Hulk Hogan laying some verbal smackdown on their Final counterparts.

“Chicago’s in a lot of trouble,” the 61-year-old said while taking part in a Special Olympics charity event for ESPN. “I’m going home this week, and I think I’m going to have a little talk with some of the Lightning guys. Chicago’s in a whole bunch of trouble, brother.”

Hogan also noted the Lightning’s unbeaten streak when his daughter Brooke performed the national anthem during the Lightning’s run to the Stanley Cup in 2004.

The Blackhawks did not respond to Sportsnet’s request for comment… but it’s probable that Marian Hossa would have responded with ‘come get it, brother.’
