A heavyweight main event

Having grown up as a Hulkamaniac, I couldn't help but pass this along:

The host of the new "American Gladiators" revival, former heavyweight wrestling champ Hulk Hogan (you might know him as Terry Bollea) was asked Thursday what celeb he'd most like to see get creamed by one of the Gladiators?

His answer? Rosie O'Donnell.

Now, really, who wouldn't like to see that?!

The Hulkster told that "Somebody needs to shut that big mouth up."

Well, on her blog, Rosie came out swinging with: "Hulk Hogan, the wrestler guy, wants to pummel me. Isn’t that sweet, and wildly odd. It’s like a gang of gross guys, a club almost, old, dumb, white and on TV.”

So here's my question:

Who would win in a fight, Rosie or the Hulkster? Leave a comment and let us know what ya think!

My best friend in college, Steve, used to play this game all the time: "Who'd Win In A Fight?" Like, who'd win in a fight, Britney Spears of Christina Aguilera? (This was when both were hot and relevant.) Or like, who'd win in a fight: Han Solo or Indiana Jones? ('Cause they're both the same guy!)

It would be great if World Wrestling Entertainment owner Vince McMahon (or as I call him, my uncle Vince) could somehow ink a Hogan/O'Donnell matchup for Wrestlemania 24 in March. OH! And I've got the perfect special guest referee ... yup ... this guy:

C'mon, Donald, whatta ya say?

It's like Celebrity Death Match on MTV! Hulk or Rosie...well, I think the Hulk as far as physical strength...Rosie might be big, but I don't think she's strong. However, if it were a verbal fight, Rosie would win. Her acid tongue could kill anyone.
