TNA Plans Hulk Hogan Fu Manchu Contest To Promote Lockdown

TNA sent out a press release to promote a Hulk Hogan “Fu-Fest” which is some kind of moustache contest. I would absolutely love someone to attend this and send me a report and pictures.

Full press release:

HULK HOGAN AND TNA WRESTLING ANNOUNCE “HOGAN FU-FEST”

ST LOUIS WRESTLING FANS CAN COMPETE FOR THE BEST FU MANCHU’S AS THE WORLD’S MOST FAMOUS ‘FU’ MEETS
THE WORLD’S LARGEST ‘FU’

St. Louis, Missouri (February 12, 2010) -Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling’s Hulk Hogan brings his blonde locks and fabled fu to St. Louis, home of the Gateway Arch, for the inaugural “Hogan Fu-Fest,” set for Friday, February 26.

The “Hulk Hogan Fu-Fest” will be a gathering of Fu’s from around the world as TNA Wrestling and Hogan attempt to set a world record for most Fu Manchu’s in one location at one time.

“Hogan Fu-Fest” will take place at Mike Shannon’s Steak and Seafood (620 Market Street) and is sponsored by Doc’s Harley Davidson of St. Louis. “Hogan Fu-Fest” will unite “fu” fans from around the world for one fu-nky afternoon. The spectacle starts at 2 p.m. CT.

The best or most creative fu’s will win ringside tickets to “TNA Lockdown 2010,” the pay-per-view extravaganza from Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling, set for Sunday night, April 18 at the Family Arena in suburban St. Charles, Mo.

“The Mustached American community of St. Louis is honored to welcome the world-renowned mustache of the man himself, Hulk Hogan,” said Dr. Aaron Perlut, chairman of the St. Louis-based American Mustache Institute (AMI).

“Biblical texts suggest that it is indeed a dangerous proposition – on par with hurricanes, tsunamis, or earthquakes – to bring together the two largest mustaches in the world, worn by Hulk Hogan and the Gateway Arch.”

The AMI will be honoring the Hulkster at the “Hogan Fu-Fest” for his long-standing upper-lip hair(s).

“The Power of The Fu is unstoppable,” Hogan said. “The Gateway Arch was fu-turistic when it was built. Today it embodies the spirit of Hulkamaniacs worldwide.”

Hogan is personally inviting anyone with a real-life Fu to attend – and also anyone who is creative. “Hogan Fu-Fest” attendees are welcome to draw, build or buy a Fu for the event. TNA Wrestling also will supply fake fu’s for those who need one for the event, as TNA is hoping to set a world record at Hogan Fu-Fest.

“Even I will sport a Fu to support Hogan,” said TNA Wrestling President Dixie Carter.

TNA Wrestling’s Lockdown 2010 pay-per-view extravaganza is scheduled for Sunday night, April 18, at the Family Arena in suburban St. Charles. Lockdown is TNA’s first 2010 PPV away from the company’s friendly confines of The iMPACT! Zone at Universal Studios in Orlando, Fla.,

AJ Styles, the reigning TNA World Heavyweight Championship, leads the St. Louis invasion of TNA stars, along with U.S. Olympic Gold Medal winner Kurt Angle, Ric Flair, Jeff Jarrett, Kevin Nash, Mick Foley, Samoa Joe and more.

Tickets for “TNA Lockdown” go on sale Friday, February 26, at www.MetroTix.com, the Family Arena box office or charge by phone at 314-534-1111. (For more information visit www.TNAWrestling.com.)
