Rapper SEAN 'P DIDDY' COMBS challenged Hulk Hogan to a wrestling match at a New York gig on Friday (27AUG04) - but backed out when he saw the mighty fighter running toward the stage.

The hip-hop star was delighted to see so many famous faces at his MANSION gig, and publicly welcomed the likes of Jessica Simpson and former Creed rocker Scott Stapp.

But Combs soon regretted his offer to fight Hogan, for "$1 million to the winner".

Former World Wrestling Federation (WWF) star Hogan rapidly responded to the rapper's proposal and ran toward the stage - forcing a frightened Combs to rescind the offer.
