And people say wrestling isnt real! My favourite line is
 " This reporter narrowly missed being struck with the table and photographers ducked and weaved as Ric Flair took off his trouser belt and began to whip anyone within range."

Probably just a publicity stunt to draw attention to the show they said was on Saturday.
 
Either way, this is undeniable a proof that Hulk Hogan was, is, and will always be a badass.

Hulk Hogan is one of the coolest guys to ever walk this earth. I haven't watched wrestling since I was about 8, but I'll be a Hulkamaniac for life.

Yeah, I just got emailed that. The natural cynic in me thinks it's still set up, though.
 
If The Wrester has taught us anything, it's that cool theatrics can be achieved with cunningly concealed razor blades. Well, that and Darren Aronofsky can make movies that don't make you so stunned you can't even utter " what the fuck".

He's gotten his "ass kicked" countless times over.  The entire sport of professional wrestling revolves around putting on as believable of a show as possible.  All of these professional wrestlers have taken their share of legitimate, painful bumps to put the fans over.
 
I'm not saying this is the case here, not enough information, but I am saying that I wouldn't be surprised if it were the case.

I'm confused...is this for real or is it just a typical pro wrestling thing? The fact that this story was reported on by a legit newspaper has me totally baffled.

I think he got into a real injury during a staged blowup because he's old as hell.
