On Friday, however, wrestling legend and Dallas Cowboys fan Hulk Hogan suggested the real reason behind the couple’s breakup was his mighty pythons.

“I love the Dallas Cowboys, been a fan forever.

There was no way my daughter was going to marry somebody that I don’t like that got me mad, or has got in my face.”

Hogan then assured us Costa was wise to avoid a physical confrontation.

"“There was a little run in with only one of the Cowboys. But you know what, he knew better than to step up cause he would have gotten slammed just like Andre the Giant.”"

Costa, who is a 34 years younger than Hogan, retired from football in April, citing the toll football had taken on his body.
