** In 1989, when he thought MissElizabeth had died (no, seriously) after having RandySavage thrown on top of her. (This was during the infamous "Megapowers Meltdown" on ''The Main Event'' that saw Savage, the WWF World Heavyweight Champion, [[FaceHeelTurn turn bad]] on Hogan over his perceived second-billing role in the alliance and Hogan's overly friendly behavior toward Elizabeth.)

* {{Bookends}}: To a degree in his relationship with the [[Wrestling/{{WWE}} WWF]]. In the mid-80s, he became the perennial [=WWF=] champion for years while spearheading the promotion's nationwide expansion, being the first champion most fans remember to any meaningful degree as anything other than the answer to a trivia question. he was also the first champion under the WWF banner, as Vince would shorten the name from WWWF (World ''Wide'' Wrestling Federation) to WWF pretty much right after Hogan won that thing. He is still largely considered the first significantly important world champion in the promotion's history. During his later tour with the [=WWF=] in 2002 after [[Wrestling/{{WCW}} WCW's]] shutdown, he became the final [=WWF=] world champion, as the company changed its name to [=WWE=] during his championship reign.

* Hogan occasionally wore various other colors in his early run as WWF world champion after he returned to the company, but eventually settled on his now classic yellow and red.

* HesBack: August 9, 1999 is a major case. Goldberg and Sting are set to team with Hollywood Hogan for a six man again Keven Nash, Scott Steiner, and Randy Savage. Out of nowhere, "American Made", Hogan's original WCW theme starts playing. The crowd actually goes almost dead silent as they have no idea why they're playing that song. Then....out walks '''''Hulk''''' Hogan, clad in the famous Yellow and Red that had been synonymous with him for over a decade. The crowd proceeds to collectively '''''LOSE THEIR SHIT''''', as a man that most were almost starting to ''miss'' due to how long the nWo angle had been played for, comes back in his classic persona. Even the ''wrestlers'' looked surprised. Nash himself looked almost stunned and Savage looked completely poleaxed. The fans were all too willing to welcome this Hogan back after three years of Hollywood Hogan.

* BullyingADragon: Was on the receiving end of this from Gawker, who despite its supposed allegiance to Social Justice, released sex tape of the Hulk and refused to take it down even with a court order against them. Hogan ended up running wild on them.

--->'''[[WebVideo/OSWReview Jay Hunter]]''': Next night on ''[[Wrestling/WCWMondayNitro Nitro]]'', they retcon the outcome of ''Halloween Havoc'': That [[Wrestling/TheBigShow Giant's]] DQ win actually snags him the WCW World Title.\\
'''V1''': ''Fuck'' me.\\
'''Jay''': So Giant...wins the WCW World Title without...getting to ''celebrate'' getting the World Title. Huh, [[ILetYouWin thanks Hogan!]]\\
'''V1''': Hogan is '''[[{{Chessmaster}} masterful]]''' at this shit, isn't he?



--->'''''Website/{{WrestleCrap}}''''': You know, I bitch all the time about [[Wrestling/TripleH Hunter]], but trust me, that guy has NOTHING on Hogan, who manipulated Vince to such a degree that he basically buried two top stars in [[Wrestling/BretHart Hart]] and {{Wrestling/Yokozuna}} just to appease his ego by putting the strap on him once again...So while you may have cheer Hogan when he comes back for one of his oh-so-frequent nostalgia tours, donít do so too loudly. You might [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor give him ideas.]]
* StillGotIt: Invoked with the "Hulk Still Rules" shirts released by WWE during his run in 2002. Vince [=McMahon=] felt a little bit differently, leading to their [[strike:second]] third split. (He demanded to be paid as much as Cena.)
* StrictlyFormula: His babyface victories tended to all end the same way.

* StrictlyFormula: His babyface victories tended to all end the same way.Some of his non main event matches in his heyday could be like this.



* TakeThatCritics At the 1995 ''World War 3'' PPV, Hogan (alongside Sting and Randy Savage) burns a dirtsheet, which he calls "a ragsheet", telling Gene Okerlund to "''Observe'' this!", which is a shot at Dave Meltzer of the ''Wrestling/TheWrestlingObserverNewsletter'', and then proclaiming, "The Internet's got all the scoops!" Little did he know that those words [[HilariousInHindsight would come back to haunt him]]. They changed the booking of the show after Meltzer got word of it in order to swerve him, but Meltzer had the changes in the issue the week before the PPV.

** Forget breaking the forth wall; EATING IT would be a better description for Hogan's comments on the November 18, 2010 ''Wrestling/{{TNA}} Re[==]Action''.
