The national mystery as to which NFL team has Hulk Hogan's support in the upcoming playoffs has finally been solved: the Hulkster revealed in the video/beach shop promo above that he will be stumping for the New England Patriots.

What prompted this important decision?

Matthew Mulligan, apparently. Though no apparent connection between Hogan and the Patriots back-up tight end readily exists, the 12-time world champ says he's donated one of his belts to Mulligan and the rest of New England's locker room as they seek to win their first Super Bowl since early 2005.
