John Giamundo / WWE
By Denise Martin, Special to the Times Hulk Hogan (nee Terry Gene Bollea) and Linda Claridge tied on the knot in 1983 and when, after 24 years of marriage, Linda filed for divorce, no one was more shocked than Hogan. A reporter for the St. Petersburg Times broke the news to the 54-year-old wrestler: "You caught me off guard. My wife has been in California for about three weeks," Hogan said. "Holy smokes. Wow, you just knocked the bottom out of me. I just pulled over to the side of the road for five minutes to find out what was going on here."
