Pro Wrestler and Reality Show Star to Make Broadcast Debut

WEST CHESTER, Pa., July 24 -- Sixteen-time heavyweight wrestling champion and recent reality show star Hulk Hogan is scheduled to make his QVC(R) debut on Thursday, July 26, 2007. Hogan will offer shoppers a specially packaged Hulk Hogan(TM) Ultimate Grill as the Today's Special Value(R).

The Ultimate Grill features dual-sided grilling capabilities, self-contained grease trapper and three interchangeable plates, including two grills and a skillet. However, as part of QVC's Today's Special Value the Hulk Hogan Ultimate Grill will be offered with five interchangeable plates -- two grill plates, two waffle plates and one griddle plate.

Each day, QVC offers one Today's Special Value, which is an item offered at an exceptionally low price -- good for the day of the Today's Special Value, until 11:59 PM (ET). The grill will be available throughout the day -- while supplies last.

"This is an exciting venture for QVC," said Ken O'Brien, director of home merchandising for QVC. "Hulk's appearance on QVC will allow our viewers to see the other side of the wrestling legend while introducing them to a great new product. It's a win-win situation for everyone."

Hogan adds, "It will be QVC-Mania in the building as we kick off the Hulk Hogan Ultimate Grill."

Hogan wrestled his way into the hearts of fans everywhere when he first entered the ring in 1979 with his above-the-ropes persona, long white hair and signature 24-inch "pythons." Arguably the most famous WWF (later renamed WWE) superstar of all time, Hogan brought unprecedented mainstream attention to wrestling, sparking the "Hulkmania" frenzy that landed him in various television and movie roles, including his famous 1983 appearance in Rocky III playing opposite Sylvester Stallone. Today, he continues to be a star on his own reality TV show, which kicked off its fourth season on July 22.

The Hulk Hogan Ultimate Grill is available through QVC at 800.345.1515 or http://www.QVC.com while supplies last.
