Police are investigating an alleged "terrorist threat" to kill wrestling champ Hulk Hogan.

Hogan's wife, Jennifer McDaniels, told cops in San Jose, California, that she was approached at the San Jose airport by professional wrestler Scott Steiner, who told her he was there to kill Hogan when he arrived, The Daily Beast reported.

A San Jose Police Department spokesman told The Beast by email, "I can only confirm a report was filed on 3/27/15 alleging a criminal threats incident that occurred on 3/26/15, at 9:45 p.m., at Mineta San Jose International Airport."

Both Steiner, 52, and Hogan, 61, were in San Jose for "WWE WrestleMania," on March 29 at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California, XPose Entertainment reported.

Hogan and McDaniels reported the incident to police the next day and police have obtained airport surveillance video which shows the confrontation, TMZ reported, adding that police are investigating Steiner for "felony terrorist threats."

Steiner, whose real name is Scott Rechsteiner and is also known as "Big Poppa Pump," is alleged to have grabbed McDaniels when he made the threat, the Daily Mirror reports.

He is said to have told McDaniels he intended to "kill Terry" when he landed. Hogan's real name is Terry Bollea.

Steiner has denied the charges, telling TMZ, "I'm not going to dignify (Hogan's) lies. I didn't put my hands on her."

Steiner, noting that there were police standing nearby when the incident occurred, asked, "so if she felt her life was threatened, why didn't she talk to the cops?

"It's not my fault Hulk Hogan is afraid of me," he said.

Hogan and Steiner have been feuding for years over Steiner's contention that Hogan was responsible for the demise of World Championship Wrestling in 2001, which damaged Steiner's career, XPose said.

The feud spilled over into a lawsuit in 2012 when TotalNonstop Action Network (TNA) took Steiner to court for contract violations over his bashing of Hogan and TNA in tweets on his Twitter account, Nashville City Paper reports.

Steiner has a history of out-of-the-ring violence. He was sentenced to 10 days in jail and two years probation in 1998 after he pleaded guilty to aggravated assault and "terroristic threats" to a Georgia Department of Transportation worker, The Beast reports.

"Typical Hogan," Steiner told TMZ. "He's just a punk."
