Anyway, what Manziel's Pro Day didn't have was a six-time WWE Champion. That's where Hulk Hogan comes in with this inspirational video. Hogan is such a Johnny Football fan that he calls him 'Johnny Mantell' at one point. Was it a slip of the tongue, or was Hogan really referring to 1977 AWA tag team champion Johnny Mantell? Hogan's been hit in the head a few times, so you can't rule anything out.
