According to TMZ, Scott Steiner, known as "Big Poppa Pump" grabbed Hogan's wife in the baggage claim area at Mineta San Jose International Airport on March 26. The report says Steiner also told her he planned to quote "kill Terry" as soon as he landed. Hogan's real name is Terry Bollea. Hogan and his wife filed a police report.

Steiner calls the allegations lies. He told TMZ he only approached Hogan's wife to talk smack about the star wrestler and claims he never put his hands on her.
