Hulk Hogan: the name used to mean so much to so many people. Hulk Hogan is the biggest star in wrestling history. He sold out arenas all around the world during his peak and wrestled the top stars from every country, territory, and promotion. His image, however, has been a bit controversial, including the affair leading to his divorce, the release of his sex tape, and his son’s accidents.
During his illustrious career, Hogan was the eye candy that took the WWE to its heights. The mid-80s saw him fighting with some of the strongest men in wrestling. His famous match with Andre the Giant gave the public what they always wanted to see: the two freaks of nature battling it out in the ring. He ultimately wrestled with the Hulkamania in WrestleMania VI and The Rock in WrestleMania X8.
On a recent episode of Monday Night Raw, three hours were spent celebrating Hogan’s birthday. Hogan has just turned 61. It was an odd number to celebrate, but it was something the WWE likely did because it happened to fall on a Monday, and after getting involved in troubles, included marital woes and his back problems, Hogan is now back with the WWE family. Here we have compiled 10 incredible statistics about Hulk Hogan that will leave you speechless.
