Sydney, Nov 18 (ANI): The Hulkamania promotional press conference at Star City turned violent and went out of control today as Hulk Hogan and ring rival Ric Flair let their animosity break into a full scale bloody brawl.

Sydney Central's photographer Phil Rogers had his flash broken when Ric Flair threw a table off the stage and into the press gathering before diving on photographers.

Media were stunned as the Hulk's head began bleeding profusely and confusion broke out when the veteran-wrestling star was unable to get to his feet, Sydney Central reports.

This reporter narrowly missed being struck with the table and photographers ducked and weaved as Ric Flair took off his trouser belt and began to whip anyone within range.

The press conference began well with the stars of the tour speaking professionally about their careers and the business.
