Hulk Hogan is a few fries short of a Happy Meal. The iconic former professional wrestler has proven time and time again that his elevator doesn’t go up to the top floor. The 64-year-old demonstrated his sharpness most recently in a tribute to Bam Magera, who he believed to be dead. Bam Magera is very much alive.

In a since-deleted tweet, Hulk posted a photo with Bam accompanied with the caption: “Damn Bam I wish you were still with us, I sure would like to hang out again my brother love u miss u HH.”

Hulk would later clarify that he confused Bam with his late best friend Ryan Dunn, who passed away in 2011 in a car crash– “Got Ryan and Bam mixed up sorry Bam!!! HH” he tweeted.

Hulk’s tweet prompted the masses to check if Bam had passed away, and the internet appeared to confirm it…

Hulk I think it’s best if you stick to wrestling and banging your best friend’s wife. Let us handle the eulogies.

RIP Brad Pitt.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
