Former WWE star Hulk Hogan signed on to be a spokesman for Rent-A-Center in 2010. He joined football announcer and former player Troy Aikman in commercials, where he peddles rent-to-own furniture and electronics. In one ad, he enthusiastically touts a 52-inch TV for around $40 a week — or roughly $160 a month — for a two-year contract. This works out to more than twice what a comparable product would cost if you purchased it at a big-box electronics retailer. That hurts more than a body slam.
