(Newser) – Hulk Hogan, never at a loss for words, was nearly speechless when a reporter told the pro wrestler and reality TV star that his wife had filed divorce papers, reports the AP. “Holy smokes. Wow, you just knocked the bottom out of me,” Hogan said, adding, "Thank you for the great information."

Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, stars with his wife, Linda, and two children in VH1’s "Hogan Knows Best." On the series, the couple had lately undergone marriage counseling, but had reconciled. Their son, Nick Bollea, 17, was arrested and lost his license this month after a car crash while street racing.
