Is Toronto Mayor Rob Ford part of a reality show we don’t know about yet?
The event was set up for media-only to create some buzz around Hogan’s appearance at the Fan Expo Canada Convention.
The bout started with what seemed like a fairly even match-up, although Ford was noticebly sweating and grabbed the edge of the table for leverage—Hogan showed little to no exhaustion.
“Suddenly, Hogan’s arm slackened and Ford pounded it to the table,” said David Rider in his story on the event for The Star. “The beaming mayor leaped to his feet and raised his arms in victory as Hogan cradled his massive bicep and groaned.”
A win for Ford—how shocking.
One thing is for sure, Mayor Rob Ford sure knows how to make headlines.
