* {{Foreshadowing}}: Several promos from 1980 highlight this, including "Classy" Freddie Blassie noting that Hogan would one day grace the cover of large-circulation magazines (a skeptical Wrestling/VinceMcMahon chuckled, ''Magazine/{{Mad}}'' ... which actually came to pass(!)), and would one day be a movie star. Shortly thereafter, Hogan boasted of a supposed friendship with SylvesterStallone and that he was going to be a leading character in ''Rocky III''' ... and lo and behold it happened!

* TakeThatCritics: From the very git-go, Hogan was determined to make his critics -- among them AndreTheGiant, BrunoSammartino and BobBacklund eat their words that he was nothing more than hot air. While he didn't quite accomplish it during his 1979-1981 go-around, he surely would in time ... and there were plenty of signs that he was more than capable of backing up his boasts with action.

* CurbStompBattle: Want to see Hogan in a pure squash match, where his opponents put up absolutely no resistance? Watch any of his matches from this run and you'll see plenty.

** Also, how weird is it to see TedDiBiase cheered and Hogan booed? Hogan's first main-event caliber opponent was [=DiBiase=] (in fact, Hogan's first match at Madison Square Garden was against a clean-shaven, humble [=DiBiase=]) ... and indeed, many of these matches weren't too different than the far-more famous encounters they'd have in the late 1980s into the 1990s.

* NWordPrivileges: Anyone who has continued to follow Hogan's battle with Gawker after the release of video footage in 2015 of him using racial slurs have forgotten a promo he once cut in early 1981, in anticipation of his feud with Tony Atlas, where he called Atlas a "jungle monkey" and other racist names.
