Hulk Hogan’s early wrestling career

Hulk Hogan was trained by Hiro Matsuda in 1976. As was customary back then, trainers stretched and beat up their students to see if they were tough enough and would come back. Matsuda broke Hogan’s leg. Hogan healed up and came back, so Hogan got bookings for Eddie Graham’s Championship Wrestling from Florida. Hogan then went to the Alabama territory billed as Terry Boulder and brought with him his best friend, Ed Leslie (Brutus Beefcake), whom he knew for years before wrestling. It was there they wrestled as a tag team and were billed as brothers. Together they caught the attention of Memphis promoter Jerry Jarrett, who brought in both of them and billed them as Boulder Brothers, Terry and Ed. While in Memphis, Hogan appeared on a local talk show that happened to also have Lou Ferrigno as a guest. Ferrigno at the time was the star of one of the most popular shows on TV, “The Incredible Hulk”. It was from that appearance that people noticed the true size of Hogan, and Hulk started to be billed as Terry ‘The Hulk’ Boulder.

Hogan’s first run in the WWF

Hulk Hogan’s first appearance in WWF came in 1979 as a heel managed by Freddie Blassie. Fans immediately took note of the size of Hulk and realized he was a star in the making. Although still somewhat green, Hogan was immediately given a big win over Ted DiBiase in Hogan’s debut match at Madison Square Garden. He was then given a big push with programs with then WWF Champion Bob Backlund and Andre the Giant. It was in these matches that Hogan body slammed Andre. In 1987 when Hogan was the WWF champion for a number of years and Andre turned heel, it was never acknowledged Andre was slammed, and was part of the build up of Hogan facing Andre, who had “never been slammed or beat.” Of course, when Hogan slammed Andre in 1979-1980, this was when the WWF was only a northeastern based territory, so the rest of the nation hadn’t seen it before. Hogan vs Andre's famous match at this time was a match that took place at Shea Stadium in 1980 built as “Showdown at Shea” headlined by Bruno Sammartino vs Larry Zbyszko.

New Japan Pro Wrestling

Hulk Hogan immediately made a big name for himself in Japan from the very first time he went there. He fought all the top names of the day from 1980-1985, which included the first few years when he was WWF Champion. The highlight of his career with New Japan was becoming the first ever IWGP Champion on June 2, 1983. He also won the MSG (Madison Square Garden) tournament in Japan in 1982 and 1983.

AWA: The birth of Hulkamania

Hulk Hogan wrestled in the AWA from 1981-1983. He came in as a heel managed by Johnny Valiant. The fans soon started cheering Hulk Hogan and it was undeniable he would be a babyface. The term Hulkamania was used in AWA, long before he came to WWF and became the champion. Hogan later admitted that he got the name Hulkamania when he spent a little bit of time wrestling in Georgia in 1979. It was there that he saw another big, muscular, blond hair wrestler by the name of Austin Idol saying that Idolmania is running wild. Hogan immediately started selling out AWA buildings around the territory feuding with the Heenan Family, most notably, the AWA World Champion Nick Bockwinkel. In 1983, Hulk Hogan played the part of Thunderlips in Rocky III, which made him a national name. After many wins by countout and DQ’s by Hogan over Bockwinkel in front of large crowds, the big match was signed between them to be the main event on a huge show called Super Sunday on April 24, 1983 at The St. Paul Civic Center in St. Paul, MN. 18,000 fans showed up as well as 4,000 more on closed circuit at the adjacent auditorium. Hogan threw Bockwinkel over the top rope, which back then was a DQ, but the ref didn’t see it as he had been knocked down. Hogan suplexed Bockwinkel and the revived ref counted three. The crowd went crazy for the title change. When Hogan went to the back, AWA president Stanley Blackburn said the title change would not stand, Hogan was DQ’d for throwing Bockwinkel over the top rope, and Bockwinkel was still the champion. If this sounds like ‘The Dusty finish', it was, and this was a few years before Dusty used it in Ric Flair’s NWA title matches, and it was probably used many times in many companies before this. Behind the scenes, the story has always been that Verne offered Hogan to finally win the title in return for a percentage of Hulk’s income that he was making in Japan while being an employee of AWA. Hogan wanted a bigger percentage of the merchandise sales. Neither could agree. Eventually, Hogan left the promotion, went to the WWF, and the AWA steadily went downhill.

Hulk Hogan jumps to the WWF

Hogan debuted on WWF TV the first week of 1984. He established himself as a babyface for the audience that remembered him as a heel the last time he was here by saving Bob Backlund from an attack from The Samoans. Backlund had just dropped the WWF Title to The Iron Sheik a few weeks earlier, and Hogan was immediately named the number 1 contender. Hogan won the title in under 6 minutes in Madison Square Garden by breaking out of Sheik’s camel clutch and using the leg drop to pin him. The place erupted. There was a new hero for the WWF audience to believe in. To this audience, it was the debut of “Hulkamania”.

Notable Feuds

1984: Hulk Hogan wins WWF Championship from The Iron Sheik

Back in the 80’s, the champion did not wrestle on TV very often. The show consisted of squash matches to set up the shows for the live events around the country in the days before PPV. Hogan’s biggest drawing opponents this year were Paul Orndorff, David Schultz, Big John Studd, Greg Valentine, and The Iron Sheik.

1985: Rock n' Wrestling, WrestleMania is born

The WWF went from one of many wrestling territories to a national powerhouse by the start of 1985 behind the drawing power of Hulk Hogan. They were now able to put on 3 cards per night. The one headlined by Hulk Hogan would often double the second biggest card they presented on any given night. The feud between Hogan and Roddy Piper was at its peak. With MTV being a cultural phenomena at this time, WWF decided to air the main event of their monthly Madison Square Garden show on MTV on February 18, 1985. Hogan defeated Piper by DQ in front of a huge television audience. With the WWF on syndicated TV across the country, they were ready to put on a show for the entire country to watch via closed circuit TV, WrestleMania. In the main event, Hulk Hogan teamed with Mr. T to defeat Paul Orndorff and Roddy Piper. Orndorff turned babyface after getting hit with Orton’s cast that he had on his arm. This led to Hogan and Orndorff teaming together on some shows. 1985 also saw the debut of Saturday Night’s Main Event which replaced Saturday Night Live once a month. The first card was Hogan retaining the title over Bob Orton. Hogan defeated Nikolai Volkoff and Terry Funk in the next two events. Hogan once again fought Roddy Piper on The Wrestling Classic winning by DQ.

1986: Don Muraco, Paul Orndorff, WrestleMania 2, The Big Event

On the Saturday Night Main Event that aired March 1, 1986, Hulk Hogan beat Magnificent Muraco by DQ. After the match, King Kong Bundy ran in and splashed Hogan and injured his ribs. This set up their match at WrestleMania 2 where Hogan beat Bundy in a cage. This is the first time we are introduced to the WWF’s ‘Blue Cage’ that replaced their traditional steel cage. By far, one of Hogan’s biggest rivalries of his career came from Paul Orndorff in the summer of 1986. After Orndorff turned babyface a year earlier after the first WrestleMania and became friends with Hogan, Orndorff turned on Hogan in a match against The Moondogs. Orndorff clotheslined Hogan, told Hogan he was an egomaniac, and took on Bobby Heenan as his manager. This led to sellouts all over the country with numerous return bouts in each city. A match was made between the two called The Big Event held at Exhibition Stadium in Toronto which drew over 61,000 fans. Hulk won via DQ and kept the feud going across the country.

1987: Hulk Hogan vs. Andre The Giant at WrestleMania III

The biggest feud by far in 1987 was Hulk Hogan vs Andre the Giant. Andre turned on Hogan and took on Bobby Heenan as his manager. Andre ripped the cross off Hogan’s chest in a segment on Piper’s Pit and then challenged him to a match at WrestleMania. WWF promoted it as the undefeated Andre (Andre did a handful of jobs in the past, but not in WWF, so fans did not know this, nor was there any internet to find out things like this back then). The stage was set for the biggest WrestleMania yet in front of what they billed as 93,000 fans at the Pontiac Silverdome. Hogan body slammed and pinned Andre to retain the title in one of the most memorable moments in wrestling history. The feud between the two continued throughout the year in storyline including them meeting in 5 on 5 Survivor Series Match in which Andre threw Hogan out of the ring and Hogan was counted out.

1988: Hulk Hogan vs. Andre The Giant on NBC's The Main Event, feud with Ted DiBiase, Mega Powers

The Andre-Hogan feud continued into 1988. At The Main Event on prime time TV on NBC watched by a record 33 million fans, Andre the Giant defeated Hulk Hogan to win the WWF Title in one of the most memorable finishes in history. Andre suplexed Hogan and went for the cover. Hogan’s shoulder was clearly up after a count of one, but the referee counted three. The fans were shocked.The referee was supposed to be Dave Hebner, but it turned out it was his twin brother Earl, who WWF signed from the NWA. The crowd didn’t know that and were shocked as the announcers said, ‘There are two Dave Hebner's’. Andre was announced as the new champion. Andre then said he is giving the title to Ted DiBiase. It was later revealed that DiBiase paid off Earl Hebner to count three. The next week, WWF President Jack Tunney announced that Hogan is not the champion, Andre is not the champion because he relinquished the title, and DiBiase is not allowed to purchase the title, therefore, he is not the champion. Tunney announced a tournament to crown a new champion at WrestleMania. Hogan and Andre met in the first round and were both counted out. The eventual winner was Randy Savage. Hogan and Savage formed a team called The Mega Powers. They faced the Mega Bucks consisting of Ted DiBiase and Andre at SummerSlam which the Mega Powers won. Jealousy started to ensue on the part of Savage during the rest of the year with Savage thinking Hogan had the hots for Elizabeth.

1989: The Mega Powers Explode, feud with Zeus, Mega Bucks

At the Royal Rumble, Hulk Hogan accidentally threw Randy Savage over the top rope, further teasing Savage’s turn on Hogan. On The Main Event on NBC, Hogan and Savage faced The Twin Towers, Big Bossman and Akeem. Savage got thrown over the top rope and he wiped out Elizabeth. With Bossman and Akeem fighting Savage, Hogan carried Savage to the back to get her help. When Savage made the comeback, he didn’t see Elizabeth or Hogan. He went to the back to see Hogan taking care of her. Savage went ballistic and beat up Hogan and claimed that Hogan has lust in his eyes for her. This set up their match for WrestleMania, in which Hogan regained the title. Savage went full fledged heel, took Sensational Sherri as his manager, and feuded with Hogan for most of the year. At SummerSlam, Hogan teamed with Brutus Beefcake to defeat Hogan and Zeus.

1990: Hulk Hogan vs. Ultimate Warrior at WrestleMania VI, feud with Earthquake

Hulk Hogan started the year by winning The Royal Rumble. The Intercontinental Champion The Ultimate Warrior had become a huge fan favorite over the last year. For the first time at WrestleMania, it was the two biggest fan favorites competing in a title vs title match. Warrior won the match and the WWF Title. Hogan’s next feud was with Earthquake. Earthquake had attacked Hogan on The Brother Love Show to set up a match between them at SummerSlam which Hogan won.

1991: Hulk Hogan vs. Sgt. Slaughter at WrestleMania VII, Arsenio Hall appearance

Hulk Hogan won the Royal Rumble, while on that same show, Sgt Slaughter defeated Ultimate Warrior for the WWF Title. In the midst of the war in Iraq, Sgt. Slaughter became an Iraqi sympathizer. Of course, this set the stage for Hogan to regain the title from Slaughter, but the feud didn’t end there. Slaughter continued attacks on Hogan and aligned himself with General Adnan and Colonel Mustafa (Iron Sheik). By this time, Slaughter had so much heat on him that he was literally receiving death threats and was wearing a bulletproof vest in the ring under his shirt. This culminated in a 2 on 3 match at SummerSlam in which Hogan and Warrior defeated Slaughter, Mustafa, and Adnan. The Undertaker was the next challenger to Hogan. He defeated Hogan at The Survivor Series to win the title. An immediate rematch was set up for another PPV a week later called This Tuesday in Texas. There was so much interference that President Jack Tunney ruled that there was no winner, the title was vacant, and whoever wins the Royal Rumble would be declared the new champion. In July of this year, Hogan appeared on The Arsenio Hall to address reports that he was being supplied steroids by Dr. George Zaharian. Hogan claimed that he only used steroids a couple of times for an injury. It was later revealed in Vince McMahon's court case that Hogan had been using steroids for many years. Wrestlers such as Superstar Billy Graham and Bruno Sammartino went on TV shows to refute Hogan's claims that he was not a steroid abuser.

1992: Hulk Hogan-Ric Flair feud, WWF hiatus after WrestleMania VIII during steroid scandal coverage

At The Royal Rumble, Ric Flair won the match and the vacant title while Sid eventually turned on Hulk Hogan to set up a match between the two for WrestleMania. At WrestleMania, Hogan beat Sid by DQ in what was billed as Hogan’s last match. Amid the steroid scandal, Hogan took time away from the WWF.

1993: Hulk Hogan returns, leaves WWF after King of the Ring

Hogan returned for WrestleMania to team with Brutus Beefcake and beat the WWF Tag Team Champions Money Inc which consisted of Ted DiBiase and Irwin R. Schyster by DQ. Later in the card, Yokozuna defeated Bret Hart for the WWF Title after throwing salt in Hart’s eyes. When Hogan came down to check on Hart, Fuji issued the challenge for him to face Yokozuna. Hogan pinned Yokozuna in under a minute to regain the title. Yokozuna regained the title from Hogan at King of the Ring.

1994: Hulk Hogan signs with WCW

Hulk Hogan officially signed with WCW on June 11, 1994. He made his official in-ring debut at Bash at the Beach on July 17th and defeated Ric Flair to become the WCW Champion. Hogan beat Flair in a rematch at The Clash of Champion, and again defeated Flair in a steel cage match at Halloween Havoc with the loser having to retire. Brutus Beefcake, wrestling under the name The Butcher, had turned on Hogan and aligned himself with Kevin Sullivan. Hogan defeated The Butcher at Starrcade. During this year, Hogan testified at Vince McMahon's steroid trial.

1995: Hulk Hogan feuds with the Dungeon of Doom

Hulk Hogan and Kevin Sullivan’s gang continued to feud. Randy Savage had come to WCW. Hogan and Savage had reunited to beat Sullivan and The Butcher. Hogan defeated Vader at Uncensored. He also wrestled The Giant, who was being billed as the son of Andre The Giant.

1996: Hulk Hogan joins the NWO

The number of fans starting to boo Hulk Hogan became noticeable. The WCW audience was not used to Hogan’s style of wrestling and the general audience simply grew tired of him. Talk of the company wanting to turn Hogan heel began. Hogan delayed it, but it finally happened at Bash at the Beach. Randy Savage, Lex Luger, and Sting were set to go against The Outsiders (Kevin Nash & Scott Hall) who had entered the company and gave the audience the impression that they were from WWF invading WCW as both were stop stars in WWF and had recently jumped ship. The anticipation for who the Outsider’s third guy would be grew. The match started and there was no third member. As the match continued, Hulk Hogan came to the ring. He got in the ring and dropped the leg on Savage. The crowd went crazy, throwing everything they could in the ring. Hogan finally turned heel. Gene Okerland interviewed Hogan in the ring while the fans pelted Hogan, Hall, and Nash with food, cans, and anything else they had on them. Hogan declared that he despises the fans and claimed they are The New World Order. This was by far, the biggest heel turn in history as it led to the biggest revenue years WCW would ever see. It also led to WWF having to adjust their show and be more real as they entered The Attitude Era, and as a result, generated the most money they ever did in company history up to that point. This also led to enormous TV rating increases for both companies, the likes of which we haven’t seen since then. The Outsiders would go on to devastate everybody in WCW for the rest of the year while they continued to add more members on a weekly basis.

1997: Hulk Hogan vs. Sting at Starrcade

The NWO and Hulk Hogan were the talk of the wrestling world and the media in general. Celebrities were at the shows and some wanted to be a part of it. One of them was Dennis Rodman. He tagged with Hulk Hogan to beat Lex Luger and The Giant at Bash at the Beach. Hogan finally lost the WCW Title to Lex Luger on Nitro in August, but lost it back to Hulk 3 days later at Road Wild. By far, the biggest angle Hogan had was with Sting. As WCW doubted Sting’s loyalty to them, he became very dark and adopted a different persona resembling The Crow. He didn’t give an interview during the entire year. He dressed in black with white face paint, hung out in the rafters, and started carrying a bat. After one year, he got his match against Hulk Hogan at Starrcade, culminating with Sting winning the WCW Title. The show was WCW’s highest PPV buy rate in company history.

1998: Hulk Hogan vs. Goldberg, Hulk Hogan vs. Ultimate Warrior

Hulk Hogan won the WCW Title from Randy Savage in April. WCW was continuing to get mainstream coverage. Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff had appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno several times. Goldberg, who was undefeated and was gaining an incredible amount of popularity over the past year, defeated Hogan for the title in front of 40,000 fans at The Georgia Dome in Atlanta. At Bash at the Beach, Hulk Hogan and Dennis Rodman defeated Diamond Dallas Page and Karl Malone. The next month at Road Wild, Diamond Dallas Page and Jay Leno defeated Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff. Ultimate Warrior returned to take on Hulk Hogan in a losing effort at Halloween Havoc. Warrior did not last long in WCW and was gone shortly after this match.

1999: The return of red and yellow

Hulk Hogan lost the WCW title to Ric Flair at Uncensored. He would return in July as a babyface. At Halloween Havoc, Hogan was supposed to face Sting for the WCW Title. Hogan came to the ring in street clothes, laid down for the pin, and left. In August, Hogan returned to his red and yellow "Hulkamania" look with "American Made" as his theme music.

2000: Bash at the Beach controversy, Hulk Hogan leaves WCW

At Bash at the Beach we saw the controversial finish of Hogan coming down to face Jeff Jarret for the WCW Title. Jarrett laid down and Hogan had a look of disbelief as he pinned Jarrett. He blamed Vince Russo and left. Russo came down and called Hogan a piece of shit and he verbally ran Hogan down. Lawsuits were filed by Hogan for defamation of character. This would be the last time we see Hogan in WCW.

2002: Hulk Hogan returns to WWE, feud with The Rock

Hulk Hogan returned to WWE with Kevin Nash and Scott Hall as the NWO as heels. Hogan accepted The Rock’s challenge at WrestleMania. Hogan told Hall and Nash he did not want them to interfere as he wanted to beat Rock on his own. The match took place at The SkyDome in Toronto where the fans loved Hogan. The fans were cheering Hogan from the moment he walked the aisle despite him being the heel. The fans booed The Rock on his every move. Hogan and Rock were smart enough to switch roles in the match. It was a masterpiece in psychology when it came to having the crowd get into the match. Rock won the match and he sided with Hogan to fight off Nash and Hall as the crowd popped for Rock and Hogan. Hogan was getting thunderous reactions on RAW and SmackDown. Riding that wave of popularity, he defeated Triple H to win the Undisputed WWF Championship at Backlash. On Judgment Day, he lost it to The Undertaker. Hogan lost via submission for the first time to Kurt Angle at King of the Ring. In July, he teamed with Edge to defeat Billy and Chuck to win the WWE Tag Team Championship. They lost them to Christian and Lance Storm at Vengeance.

2003: Hulk Hogan rematch with The Rock, feud with Mr. McMahon

Rock returned from Hollywood and adopted a heel persona that he is better than everybody. They set up a rematch between the two in which Rock won again. Hogan defeated Mr. McMahon at WrestleMania XIX. In the next angle involving them, Mr. McMahon said he is going to have Hogan sit at home and not appear in WWE so people will forget him, so Hogan came back under a mask as Mr. America. Mr. McMahon brought in Roddy Piper to renew his rivalry with Hogan, but Hogan beat Piper at Judgment Day. Hogan left the company after this over a payoff dispute. His last match that year was against Brock Lesnar on SmackDown.

2005: Hulk Hogan inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame, feud with Shawn Michaels

Hulk Hogan was inducted into the 2005 Hall of Fame. At WrestleMania, he came out to save Eugene from an attack from Muhammad Hassan and Daivari. The next night on RAW, Hassan and Daivari attacked Shawn Michaels. Michaels demanded a handicap match with them. GM Eric Bischoff said Michaels can have the match if he finds a partner. Michaels asked Hogan to be his partner. The next week, Hassan again attacked Michaels and Hogan came out for the save, setting up the tag match at Backlash between the two teams, won by Hogan and Michaels. In July, Hogan and Michaels teamed up against Carlito and Kurt Angle. After the match, Michaels turned on Hogan by hitting him with Sweet Chin Music. The match between Hogan and Michaels took place at SummerSlam. Some say Michaels made a mockery out of having to lose to Hogan by over exaggerating his selling.

2009-2013: TNA years

Hulk Hogan signed with TNA in 2009 and debuted on the January 4, 2010 episode of Impact Wrestling on Monday night competing directly with Monday Night Raw.
