Washington: Wrestling icon Hulk Hogan is all set to launch his latest TV venture, Hulk Hogan’s Micro Championship Wrestling, on U.S. network TruTV on Wednesday.

The concept of this new reality show is to record the lives of a group of little wrestlers based in Florida, with Hogan pumping up confidence to elevate their skills, so that they may match the successes of their larger counterparts.

“I spent 20 years around (7-foot, 4-inch) Andre the Giant and he couldn’t sit in a first class seat (on an airplane). People would walk behind him in the airport and you’d hear comments. They’d say cruel things,” Contactmusic quoted him as telling to gossip blog

“(But) in these guys’ cases, you might see one go into a hotel lobby front desk and the clerk can’t see them. I’m trying to get them to function on a higher level. How to handle themselves in the ring, being more professional and, basically, reinventing yourself. We get to see how they handle normal-sized doors and cars, as well as watching them deal with their wives or helping their kids doing their homework.” he added.
