“Whatcha gonna do when Hulkamania runs wild on YOU?” That phrase is synonymous with one of the most well-known athletes in not only the wrestling world, but also in the sports world, the Immortal Hulk Hogan. For over three decades, Hogan has dazzled and entertained the sports entertainment world and has become an icon and legend in the industry. From his earth-shaking body-slam of the late, great Andre the Giant at Wrestlemania III to his epic encounter with The Rock at Wrestlemania X8, Hogan captured the hearts of millions of WWE fans. But it didn’t stop there. Who could forget his days as a part of WCW, as the leader of the NWO, and the new “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan persona? Hogan has undoubtedly done it all in professional wrestling, leaving a trail of ripped t-shirts behind.
Hogan had three Demandments that he believed everyone should live by; train, say your prayers, and eat your vitamins. Those three rules had a fourth, which was probably the most important of the Demandments, “believe in yourself.” It was those values that Hogan chose to live by, coupled with his infectious and energetic personality that caused many to look up to him as a true American Hero.
Hogan’s list of accomplishments include being an 8-time WCW Heavyweight Champion, a 5-time WWE Champion, WWE Undisputed Champion (WWF and WCW Titles), and also holding the Heavyweight Championships in the NWA, AWA, and IWGP. Hogan was also a 2-time winner of the WWE Royal Rumble (1990 and 1991). Hulk Hogan was inducted into the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2003 and the WWE Hall of Fame in 2005.

10. His Rap War with the Macho Man
It is clear to everyone that the Macho Man Randy Savage was awesome, or crazy depending on how you look at things. He was known for his eccentric interviews and wild attires, but the most insane thing he ever did was release a rap album. No, you’re reading this incorrectly. It is so rare, that you can buy it on eBay for $60, which is astronomical for a CD of this quality. There isn’t much more to say, other than to listen to the track that’s been linked. It’s a diss track on Hulk Hogan that is incredible. Enjoy.
