Yup, it's true, and might I add that that would have been the most amazing thing ever if it had happened.  Not only would it piss off Metallica fans, but it would traumatized wrestling fans everywhere.
“I would have quit wrestling in a heartbeat to be a bass player for Metallica.”

He should have tried for Megadeth, they'd let him in, they just wouldn't plug his bass in on stage.

His inaugural speech would just be "Are you ready Terrorists? 'Cause Hulkamania is gonna run wild over you, Brother!" -rips shirt off and "I Am A Real American" plays while he exits the stage-
how could you not think that that would be awesome?  
Edit: Metallica should at least cover this song, if they won't let the Hulkster join forces.
