Toronto Mayor Rob Ford often takes a beating in the media, but on Friday he'll have an even tougher opponent.
Ford will take on 14-time pro wrestling champion Hulk Hogan on Friday at Toronto's Fan Expo.
The legendary shirt-ripping wrestler will be in town for the event, where he is set to hold an "uncensored" question-and-answer session on Friday evening.
But Ford's spokesman announced on Twitter Thursday that Hogan and Ford will go head-to-head that morning at 10 a.m. in what's been billed as an "epic" matchup.
Fan Expo Canada runs Aug. 22-25 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
