Hulk Hogan is yours to play with. He’ll do whatever you ask him.

Hogan was a force to reckon with during the 1970s and 80s, collecting 12 wrestling championships and an induction into the WWE Hall of Fame.

Today he is a 58-year-old Twitter addict who is asking his followers to tweet things for him to do on video using the hashtag #challengehulk.

“Do you want to challenge Hulk Hogan to do something ridiculously funny?” the Facebook page for the challenge said. “A Lady Gaga parody? Dance with the stars? Ryan Seacrest takeover?! Bodyslam your neighbor?!”

So far the hashtag has only been mentioned about 240 times, according to statistics from Topsy, a social media search engine.

Many of those mentions have come from Hogan himself, who has been tweeting at celebrities like Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, and Kim Kardashian asking them for suggestions. It’s enough to make the old fake-fighting champion look a little desperate.

It’s been a slightly different story on Facebook, however.

There people are challenging Hogan to a thumb war or run for president. One person has suggested he perform the cinnamon challenge, a popular dare game where a person tries to swallow a tablespoon of cinnamon without coughing it up or sneezing it out.

If he takes up the cinnamon challenge, we can only imagine his reaction will look something like this:

We can’t wait.
