Toronto Mayor Beats Hulk Hogan In Arm Wrestle
Toronto's mayor Rob Ford has won an arm-wrestling contest against former wrestling star Hulk Hogan.
The 14-time world wrestling champion, in a T-shirt and his trademark bandana, entered the room to applause and his old wrestling theme music, while Mr Ford strutted in to Eye Of The Tiger.
The mayor then ripped off his jacket and tie, untucked his dress shirt and rolled up his sleeves.
As the pair locked hands, the 22 stone ex-wrestler said: "Big man, oh, that's all you got?
"Not only am I going to rip this arm off, I'm going to take your job while I'm at it, brother. Mayor Hogan."
Mr Ford appeared to struggle at first, but after 20 seconds he slammed Hogan's arm down.
"I own this town!" he said.
The stunt took place at Fan Expo Canada, a convention celebrating diverse pop culture genres.
Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, was in Toronto for a question and answer session at the expo.
Mr Ford has hit the headlines over allegations that he appeared in a video smoking crack cocaine. The video has not been released publicly.
He said Hulk Hogan had been his hero since he was a "little guy" and tweeted after the match: "I own this town @HulkHogan! Thanks for being such a great sport."
