Rob Ford Arm Wrestling Hulk Hogan

Rob Ford scores a major victory (while arm wrestling)

It must not be easy to be Rob Ford right now, what with controversy following you around all the time, the demands of the media hounding you, and no football team to coach as a respite from the rigours of running the city once in a while. But being the mayor of Canada's largest city does have its perks — like an arm wrestling Hulk Hogan as part of Fan Expo festivities.

And not only that, he won! Well, kind of. You know how wrestling works. Hogan might have helped him out just a little. That didn't, however, diminish the beaming smile the mayor wore after the biggest victory he's won in recent memory. Here's how it all played out earlier today at the Intercontinental Hotel.
