Hogan Contemplated Suicide After Family Breakdown

HULK HOGAN was on the verge of suicide following the breakdown of his marriage - he downed anti-anxiety drugs and reached for a gun.
The wrestling legend split from his wife of 20 years, Linda Bollea, in 2007, around the same time his son Nick was involved in a horrific car crash, which left passenger John Graziano severely injured and needing full-time care.
Nick was sentenced to eight months in prison for reckless driving, and Hogan admits the series of family problems pushed him to the edge.
In his new book, My Life Outside The Ring, he writes, "There were times when I thought that a whole bottle of pills would go down easy... Then I noticed the gun in my hand. I was careless with it... I kept my finger pressed right to that trigger and if I moved that finger an inch in the right direction I would have blown my brains out."
