Hulk Hogan Upset with Viceland’s Macho Man & Miss Elizabeth Episode; Viceland Responds
Viceland’s Dark Side of the Ring documentary series premiered last week with an episode dedicated to the troubled real life relationship between “Macho Man” Randy Savage and Miss Elizabeth. This episode featured Hulk Hogan’s ex-wife, Linda, among those interviewed on the topic.
Hulk Hogan recently stated on Twitter that he felt the episode relied too much on a certain individual interviewed and claimed some of the stories told were not truthful.
Just watched VICE the dark side of Macho Man 5 out of 10 ,really good but relied too much on a couple of pictures someone had and believed stories that were half truths and some that were just wrong,what a shame they didn’t check all sources HH

Viceland responded on Twitter stating that they appreciated Hogan for viewing the episode and they originally planned for him to be interviewed for the episode but he turned down their request.
Thanks for watching. We reached out to you to participate in this but you declined. We would've love to have your POV for this story. Hope we can get you on the next one.
