MIKILEAKS: The Espy's Future Uncertain

Mick Molloy dropped a bombshell this morning on Triple M’s Hot Breakfast.

Mick Molloy has told Triple M’s Hot Breakfast that he believes that iconic St Kilda hotel The Esplanade (AKA The Espy) is closing its doors.

"I believe that the Esplanade Hotel that has been an institution for as long as I remember - The Espy, The jewel in the St Kilda crown - will be closing for good in two weeks," Mick said on Triple M.

“I hope I am wrong (but) I have some very good sources that are telling me that on the ground there are serious undercurrents going on in St Kilda.”

The Hot Breakfast's Rosie agreed with Mick: “I believe staff have been given two weeks notice and they're are looking around Fitzroy St venues for work.”

“The rumour is they are shutting for renovations but other people have suggested that can’t be a possibility.”

Hulk Hogan Sorts Ed Out!

We don't think Eddie will accuse Hulk of being a "knock off" again!

What happens when you accuse Hulk Hogan off being a “knock off” of another wrestler? 

Eddie McGuire found out the hard way on Friday morning after he did just that before the legendary wrestler appeared on Triple M’s Hot Breakfast

Don’t be surprised if Ed is sporting a neck brace in the crowd at the MCG tonight at the Collingwood-Carlton! 

Apart from sorting out Ed, the Hulkster revealed some very interesting tidbits about his life that would be of great interest for the audience of the greatest rock radio station in the world! 

The 12-time world champion said that he sent auditions to both The Rolling Stones and Metallica when their respective bassist gigs became vacant.

Unfortunately for Hulk, he was knocked back both times!
