“I own this town, man!” shouted Ford after he beat the pro wrestling legend at Toronto’s Fan Expo. Ford has 16 years on Hogan, but there’s no way he should have taken victory over the 12-time world champion. If you look closely, it seems Hogan actually threw the match.

The contest “encourages people to come to this city, creates jobs and stimulates the economy,” Ford claimed. We’re not sure how that works, exactly.
