Hulk Hogan wedding marred by a brawl

Hulk Hogan wedding marred by brawl A Hulk Hogan wedding ceremony would, of course, have a touch of the wrestling arena to it — though not by the bride and groom's design.

Hogan, 57, and Jennifer McDaniel, 37, were married at the former pro wrestler's waterfront home in Florida on Tuesday, with the vows punctuated by a brawl that reportedly started when a photographer pressed his arm against the throat of a family employee who'd asked him to leave.

The brawl began after photographer Robert Martinez reportedly shouted, "I'm packing a gun," according to TMZ, which also said his video camera was running during the altercation, providing police with interesting viewing.

Nobody was arrested, and as of Wednesday the officer responsible for the report had not written it up, People said.

McDaniel and Hogan (real name Terry Bollea) got engaged in December 2009 and, according to Hogan's attorney, have no immediate honeymoon plans. They'd intended to keep the wedding as quiet as possible after filing for a license in November, David Houston said. Meh, maybe not so much?

Even with the brawl, however, the wedding was less confrontational than the two-year divorce battle (with wife of 23 years, Linda Hogan) that preceded it.
