In the famed wrestling world, when you make a name for yourself, you become a big deal; but as we all know, with success comes bitterness. The same goes for all the big superstars in the business, and Hulk Hogan is no exception. Despite being loved by millions of fans all over the world, and revolutionizing the wrestling business, Hogan has received a ton of heat over the years; most notably by some of his former colleagues for the way he is behind the scenes when the cameras aren't rolling. Just a couple of weeks ago, Scott Steiner met with Hogan’s new wife Jennifer, and let’s just say things didn't go so smoothly. Steiner apparently threatened to kill her husband. Hogan’s wife, not knowing who Scott was, called the police, and because of this incident, Steiner was banned from the Hall of Fame. I’ll have more on this situation later in the article, along with many other issues regarding Hogan; problems ranging from criticizing Hulk for being a snitch, to being selfish and criticizing him for being a liar. Whatever the case may have been, this article will take a look at 10 wrestlers that have hated on Hulk Hogan in the past, and why they have hated on one of the most iconic wrestling figures of all time. Enjoy!
10 Jesse Ventura
9 The Honky Tonk Man
8 Scott Steiner
The bad blood between these two stems all the way back to their WCW days. Steiner blames Hogan for all the confusion that went on in WCW, specifically when the broadcast was about to begin and no one knew what was going on. Scott blames Hogan because he claims the show ran around Hogan’s schedule and what Hulk was okay with. Steiner even claims the exact same thing went on when Hogan was in TNA. The situation got even worse between the two recently. During this year's Hall of Fame ceremony, Steiner was banned from the event after Scott and Hulk Hogan’s wife Jennifer, reportedly had an “ugly incident” on an airplane. We're not exactly certain what happened, but one thing’s for sure judging by past situations, Steiner’s never afraid to speak his mind.
7 Doink The Clown
6 Iron Sheik
5 Shawn Michaels
4 Bret Hart
3 Ric Flair
2 Ultimate Warrior
Thankfully before the Warrior passed, the two were able to put their differences aside. The feud between Hulk Hogan and the Ultimate Warrior became very heated in 2011, when Warrior videotaped a shoot interview that went public. During this interview, Warrior bashed Hogan for getting sick pleasures out of exposing other people's dirty laundry. In the 52 minute shoot, Warrior called Hogan a “selfish fraud”. Warrior also claimed that Hogan was a massive drug addict. Like many other wrestlers, Warrior believed that Hogan never wanted anyone to steal his spotlight and would ensure that no one would progress to becoming better than him. Hogan responded to the video by saying that the Warrior was a great friend and was confused as to why the Warrior became so bitter. Warrior's shoot video generated almost a million views on YouTube.
1 Macho Man Randy Savage
The falling out between the late Macho Man and Hulk Hogan began with a situation involving Miss Elizabeth. Elizabeth joined Hogan and his wife in Miami, while Hogan was shooting a movie. While in Miami, Miss Elizabeth reportedly had an affair with another man behind Randy Savage’s back. Savage blamed the entire situation on Hogan for not telling him the truth, and he also blames Hulk for ruining his family. Macho Man was also angered at the fact that Hogan would never speak to him face to face and would always hide behind something. Macho Man actually challenged Hogan to several fights, claiming he would give all the money they made in their real fight to charity. Macho Man went even further and made a rap song in 2003 called “Be a Man”. This song expressed Randy’s hate for Hogan.
Many fans were very displeased to find out that Hogan was inducting the Macho Man into the Hall of Fame this year. The feeling was that the two had never really made up.
