About Hulk Hogan
From the moment he first stepped into a wrestling ring, Hulk Hogan changed the face of sports-entertainment forever. With his 24-inch pythons and unrivaled charisma that sparked the “Hulkamania” phenomenon, Hogan helped turn wrestling into must-see theater and took the industry to heights never before imagined. During his heyday, Hogan’s popularity with fans bordered on fanaticism, and, even today, he is one of the most recognizable people in the world. A 12-time World Champion in the ring, Hogan was dominant through the 1980s and 1990s, and he enjoyed a career pinnacle later in the ‘90s, as he led the controversial New World Order (nWo) in its attempt to take over WCW. A 2005 inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame, Hulk Hogan is one of the greatest superstars to ever lace up boots, and his impact on sports-entertainment is second to none. Hulk Hogan made an epic return to the world of professional wrestling when he joined Total Non-Stop Action Wrestling (TNA) in January of 2010. TNA is the #1 wrestling company in the world, and their weekly show, IMPACT WRESTLING, on Spike TV is an especially strong performer with young men.
