Nick the Prick






Before pic of John Graziano


After pics of John Graziano

After you finish reading and viewing the videos, I'd very much like your thoughts.

In August 26, 2007, Nick Bollea, son of Nick Holgan, and his passenger, were in a horrible car accident that left his passenger John Graziano, 22, critically injured (comatose), while Nick Bollea only suffered minor injuries and was released from the hospital soon after. He was arrested sometime in November of 2007 for driving recklessly, for having illegally tinted window, and for driving while INTOXICATED (blood alcohol level of .02%). Before this accident happened, he already had 3 tickets for driving over 100 miles per hour.

Many witnesses testified that the streets were wet when they saw him drag racing. Bollea was later arrested and sentenced to (a slap on the wrist) eight months in jail, a 5 year probation and 500 hours of community service.

After sentencing this is what he said to the court:

"I miss John being around me all the time. I know this has been extremely difficult for the Grazianos, and it has also been extremely difficult to my family, and I feel terrible about it."

And Hulk Holgan said this in behave of his son:

"Nick is not the person that he's been asked to be portrayed on TV. ... Nick is a good person. He is kind, he is gentle, he's compassionate, and he doesn't have a bad bone in his body. And people fail to realize that Nick is still a 17-year-old child."

Ok, all this happened last year, so why am I bringing it up now? Because I'd like for you to read the following, and listen to the actual jail house phone call (made public) conversation between Nick Bollea Holgan, Mummy and DADDY, so you can be the judge as to the concern the Hulk Holgan family truly feels for John Graziano, a 22 yr. old decorated Iraq war veteran who had just gotten back from Iraq, and who is now permanent severe mental and physical damage. John Graziano's family says the Holgan's have never even bothered to apologize!

One of many Jail Transcripts:

Hulk: "Well, I don't know what type of person John was. Or what he did to get himself in this situation. I know he was pretty aggressive and yelled at people and do stuff. And for some reason God laid some heavy shit on that kid. I don't know what he was into."

Nick: "He was a negative person.

Hulk: "He was what?"

Nick: "He was a negative person. Will you work on that Real-Ality deal?"

Hulk: "Yep"

Nick: "Get that lined up so the minute I walk out...wherever I walk out of it's there...boom."

Hulk: "Can you do it while you're on probation?"

Nick: "Of course."

Hulk: "Do you want to do it with Pink Sneakers or someone else?"

Nick: "I want to do it where I'll make the most money."

Hulk Hogan And Son Nick Blame John Graziano, and Nick the PRICK wants to make lost of money out of the tragic accident that left John Graziano a vegetable!!


And here I thought Paris Hilton was a cry baby when she was in jail. Listen to the Hulk, Jr. Wimp!

It is cases like this that result in mandatory sentencing laws being brought into affect. I am not sure if there is precedence or if it is even allowable but given the information that has since come out people should be demanding that the sentence be reviewed as remorse of the guilty party is one of the factors in assessing the penalty.

Sadly, I do not believe that the information given to the court would have been considered testimony or a case could have been made the family had actually perjured themselves.

I've found so many more negative things about this guy Nick that I didn't know when I first made this post, that I now feel more than ever that he was truly given just a slap on the wrist for the pain he caused the victim and his family.

Agreed. It was a ridiculously light sentence even before what he said in prison was publicly released. Especialy given his history

It's hard to believe, the lack of remorse he has, as well as only worrying about money, and his dad bascially going along with him. I too wish this case would get some sort of review, he certainly seem to deserve any and all punishment that can be handed down.

Remorse...
The Hulk Hogan family doesn't know the meaning of remorse, and they never will.

I really hate it when people blame God for human behavior or negligence. I think it's dumb enough to refer to an "act of God" in nature, but this type of thing really pisses me off. ya, it was a dumb idea for John to get in the car with Nick, given what a criminally stupid asshole he is, but it's hardly the fault of either God or John that Nick drove like a retarded asshole and basically killed him.

Hmm...

Mixed feelings.

I was a big fan of Hulk Hogan back in the day.

So, what to think about the whole thing?

Obviously the son is a shithead. He'll probably not get the show he wants; I wouldn't think so, anyway... he's a shithead, and really, as the son of Hulk Hogan, he's not really on the short list of celebrity sons. I can't see that anybody is going to want to watch that for more than an episode or two at the most. Maybe he'll start to have remorse when he sees that this whole thing has hurt him, too.

As for the victim, yeah, there's not much to say, his family is in a very tough spot. I wonder if there might be a lawsuit on the way, but that won't help John, other than to maybe pay for care.

Hulk, though, he's the one I'm more interested in. Yes, he made some insensitive statements on the phone. I don't know exactly why he said them, or what he meant by them. Ok, but is Hulk evil? The character that he played back in the day was not, and I have always seen him as a good guy. Well, Hulk certainly didn't crash the car, even if he did end up raising a shitty kid. He did get excited about a show on the call. Is that fucked up? Yeah, it is. That's his business. Ok, in thinking it out, I've come to the conclusion that Hulk does not come out of this as evil, but he does come out as not at all intelligent.

Not evil?
Hogan was in the car when his kid got pulled over, twice within 30 min, for going over 100MPH in Alligator Alley one night a couple of months before this accident. He used his fame to get his son off with a warning both times.

He bought his son the car, paid for it to be souped up, and got him the license plate "COEHSP" which stands for, by Nick's own admission on television, "Capable Of Evading High Speed Pursuit".

There is credible evidence that Hogan would drag race his son, and let people borrow his car to drag race against his son.

He not only knew what his kid was doing, he encouraged it.

And, then he blames the victim claiming it is somehow karma.

Did you miss the other tape?
The one where Nick cries and says he can't handle jail? The one where he whines about his cell being half the size of his bathroom?

The little shit is being kept in segregated lock-up. They should toss his ass into GenPop and let the inmates have a go at him.

Oh, and after little Nicky finished whining, Daddy Terry "Hulk Hogan" Bollea told his son to "man up".

I do have to say one thing, I don't think Nick actually got tickets for going over 100MPH. I think the cops let him off with warnings. I know at least two cops did so when he was pulled over twice running over 100MPH on Alligator Alley with Terry in car. I believe both troopers got autographs from the Terry, as well.

Re: Did you miss the other tape?
Sorry, wasn't logged in.

Dave, no words can convey the extent of my disgust for this piece of human crap. He whines about being locked up in a room the size of a bathroom, and never stops to consider that John Graziano will be locked up in his body for the rest of his life, and all because of his reckless driving and intoxication.

His DADDY calls him a 17 year old child. DAMN, I was 17 when I took the recruiter to my house so my parents would sign on the dotted line. What these irresponsible parents should do is make the pathetic, immature, sniveling piece of tissue paper joined the military, and MAYBE this will force him grow up and start having some concern for human life.

I remember when this happened... Hogan Jr should have been tried for reckless homicide. His old man should have had his ass kicked for even allowing hinm to drive or have a vehicle again after the initial stunts.

Once more a rich asshole, refuses to take responsibility for his own actions. Both Jr and Sr.

Son AND Papa should have been charged. If Graziano dies, both of them should be charged for involuntary manslaugher.

He would've been acquitted of such charges because all parties involved decided to go racing that night.

Nick's Convo with Dad
There is something very odd about that phone coversation between Nick and Hulk Hogan. It seems like 2 totally seperate conversations edited together to make it seem like they jumped from talking about John to instantly worrying about a reality show. If you go back and listen, you hear a cut off spot.

And I think Hulk's "God did it" statement was said to give support to his son, i.e. help him make sense of the events that occured and help him through the crisis. In my opinion he's just being a father that's giving aid to his son, not that Hulk's comment expresses the wisest of philosophies. It's just that Nick is still very young, and he looks up to his father, so I think it's just Hulk's attempt at explaining the situation (and life) to put him at ease. Naturally, I would try to do the same thing if I was in Hulk's shoes. Granted, I wouldn't blame it on God because that accident is by no means divine intervention to punish someone because God doesn't do that. Even if a hurricane came through and did that to them, that wouldn't be God's hand either.

I also think it's a case of "a child can do no wrong in a parent's eyes" paradigm. And to some degree there is some truth to that because there was no mailce aforethought. The fact the Nick is wild and makes bad decisions doesn't make him a bad person. John got in that car knowing full well what they were about to do that night. So, one cannot impose all the blame upon Nick for what happened to John just because Nick was the driver and he walked away practically unscathed.

Personally, I don't think Nick should be in jail for what happened to John. I don't know if that's what he's in jail for. My point is, however, forcing mental anguish upon him for such an incident isn't going to help anyone. Instead, it's going to put him in a position where he's going to look for a way out no matter the cost just so he doesn't lose his spirit by going into depression while in solitaire confinment -- which I think is seen by what most people interpret as him attempting to profit off the situation with a reality show when in reality he's just trying to overcome a crisis and get his life back on track.

And, with regards to all I said above, by no means am I implying that Nick has the best judgment, nor am I implying that it would be wise to confide in Nick for moral advice or advice on life. Same goes for Hulk Hogan. I think they're good people, but by no means are they known for their profound philosophies on life. I think they're just trying to make it through their crisis, and go on with life while making the best of life that they can. And, I find nothing wrong with that. They're just making very poor choices right now, but then again, we were only privy to a short segment of their discussions which appear to be edited in order to make the Hogan's look like wicked people.

The bottom line though is that what happened to John was an accident. So, why should Nick be forced into torment and mental anguish just because he walked away unscathed? One cannot force someone to grieve.


P.S. There is no 'L' in Hogan. And, it's "on behalf of his son," not "in behave of his son."

And further more...
Let’s face it Dave, Hulk and son are self-centered, egocentric assholes! There is absolutely NO excuse for the horrific damage he has caused to Graziano. The jerk was drinking and driving, and he was speeding. It’s a law that you should NEVER drink and drive, and when you break the law, the inevitable eventually happens; you seriously maim, or kill an innocent person.

He’s son is still very young??!! SEVENTEEN??!! As I mentioned to someone else in this post, I was SEVENTEEN when I joined the Army!! This ASSHOLE was old enough to know better, and he DID, but he didn’t give a damn. He was going to do what he wanted to do and the hell with everyone else! It’s a miracle he didn’t injure or kill other people. This is his 4th offense for driving recklessly at speeds in excess of 100 per hour.

As for Papa, he should also be charged, because he not only raised a spoiled rotten jerk, he also allowed him to drink and drive his car, knowing full well of his disgusting history.

As for the mother, how dare she say SHE’S the one who’s suffering, because her BABBA is in a little jail without windows! If I were Graziano’s mother, and heard the BITCH cry that she’s the one who is suffering, I yank every hair from her body.

How ironic that John survived Iraq, came back home, and ended up as we see him in the above pictures. Can you imagine if John was my brother or yours?

Re: And further more...
No, one is prohibited by statute to not drink and drive -- which is not necessarily law. It acts more as a bylaw than anything else, but that's a discussion to be saved for another day.

Yes, Nick is still very young. How is 17 not young? Just because you were forced to "grow up" doesn't mean everyone will walk that same path. Everyone matures at a different age. So yes, I would say he's still a rambunctious kid that needs to mature. And you didn't instantly "grow up" when you enlisted. You were disciplined, and overtime you matured. This kid needs discipline, and he still needs to mature.

I watched all these videos you posted and Nancy Grace needs to shut up. These displayed recordings are nothing more than sound bites that are being purposely manipulated and spun by the media for entertainment. And you're buying right into it. Unless you have been privy to the full recordings, you're in no place to state which parts are irrelevant and which parts aren't. You don't know. But here you are up in arms passing judgment without having all the facts. So, don't expect me to jump on the hate Nick band wagon because of these manipulated sound bites.

The Bollea's are in the entertainment industry. There's nothing immoral or wrong about them discussing business. Nick threw out an idea for a concept or name of a show without fully evaluating it. In other words, he was brain storming ideas for the entertainment industry with his father which was thought to be in privacy. Who is to say that it wouldn't have dawned on them that the concept was immoral because John has been damaged for life? To me, it seemed like he was throwing out ideas to get his life back on track. They did say, and I paraphrase, "Think about it." So obviously, they were just brain storming ideas for the entertainment industry.

Linda Bollea is suffering. A friend of the family died and her son is in jail due to an accident. She just doesn't think it's right for John's mother to be attacking them. And you've misconstrued what Linda said just as you've misconstrued 2 seperate convos as one.

You're playing the sympathy card here and asking for the system to punish Nick for what happened to John. It was an accident -- a racing accident at that. Granted, these street races aren't conducted in the most responsible ways as is seen in say Nascar, but this incident is still a car race that went horribly wrong.

This is one of the biggest molehills I've ever seen.

The only reason it's getting any attention is because the people involved are rich and famous. Things like this and worse happen all the time to normal people, but because these jerkoffs are famous, everyone has to make a big deal about it. No one gave a shit when one of my friends was killed in High School in a similar situation. At least this guy has a chance that medical science may be able to save him. My friend wasn't so lucky. I guess I just can't give a shit enough about this situation to be angry at anyone except the people who play into the media's ploy to keep the famous famous. Bread and Circuses, folks.

Strangers die every day.
