* 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.

2002.
* 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''.

* CharlieBrownFromOuttaTown: His "Mr. America" persona. Come ''on'', now. He even strikes the same poses. Vince couldn't fire him from ''Smackdown'' because he didn't have ironclad "proof" that it was the same guy.

ThatOtherWiki has an [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hulk_hogan extensive article]] on his life and career (both in and out of the ring), so you can go check that out if you really need a refresher.

* AllAmericanFace: For ''fourteen years''. Hogan became so synonymous with the role that his FaceHeelTurn ''genuinely'' sent shock waves through the industry.
** The Mr. America gimmick in WWE in 2003 was his last major stab at it.

His given name is Terry Gene Bollea (b. August 11, 1953). You know him better as Hulk Hogan. If the name doesn't ring any bells, you were either born in the past decade or you've been living under a rock for the past three. To put it simply: Hogan is the single most famous professional wrestler to ever lace up a pair of boots, as even his [[TheRival industry rival]], Wrestling/RicFlair, has reluctantly admitted.

* ArchEnemy:
** Wrestling/AndreTheGiant, {{Wrestling/Sting}}, Wrestling/RicFlair. Wrestling/RoddyPiper was Hogan's ArchEnemy during the early days of Hulkamania.
** It could be said that Wrestling/BobbyHeenan was the ComicBook/LexLuthor to Hogan's Superman. (When Hogan exploded into his FaceHeelTurn, The Brain responded with a HeelFaceTurn.)



* BigGood: One of the reasons that Hogan stayed interesting for so long was that Hogan's StrictlyFormula main event matches were few and far between. Unlike today's wrestling atmosphere, a main event featuring World Champion Hulk Hogan was something rare and special.



* FaceHeelTurn:
** One of, if not then the, most famous example in wrestling history. Hogan - the ultimate AllAmericanFace, who taught kids to train, say their prayers, take their vitamins, and believe in themselves - turned his back on the fans at ''Bash at the Beach 1996'', once more becoming one of wrestling's top draws (this time, as a Heel).
** HeelFaceTurn: Following the huge crowd reaction to Hogan when the [=nWo=] came into the WWF, Hogan was quickly moved out of the group and turned back to a face role. He did a similar turn twenty years earlier in the AWA, to the point where when he returned to the WWF, he was brought in as a straight-up babyface.

HeelFaceRevolvingDoor:



** He did something similar to a heel turn turn twenty years earlier in the AWA. When when he returned to the WWF, he was brought in as a squeaky-clean babyface.
** Hogan the ultimate AllAmericanFace, who taught kids to train, say their prayers, take their vitamins, and believe in themselves - turned his back on the fans at ''Bash at the Beach 1996'', once more becoming one of wrestling's top draws (this time, as a Heel).
** Following the huge crowd reaction to Hogan when the [=nWo=] came into the WWF, Hogan was quickly moved out of the group and turned back to a face role.
** At ''Bound for Glory 2011'', Sting and Hogan end up bleeding after being struck by an object Flair passed to Hogan, and Sting eventually stole. Hogan taps out to a Scorpion Deathlock; it is, by Hogan standards, a clean finish. Flair immediately jumps in the ring to attack Sting and other members of {{Wrestling/Immortal}}. Hogan, who now is completely recovered from what, by his standards, was a grueling match, hulks up and stands up to his own group; he and Sting clear the ring of the younger wrestlers who aren't covered in their own blood.



** Hulkamania just might be the greatest gimmick in the history of wrestling (just short of The Undertaker). How do you hurt a cartoon?

** One of the reasons that Hogan stayed interesting for so long was that Hogan's StrictlyFormula main event matches were few As an aside: [=Wrestlemania X8's=] match between The Rock and far between. Unlike today's wrestling atmosphere, a main event featuring World Champion Hulk Hollywood Hogan was something more popular than anybody could have expected, so Hogan was given a brief title reign -- his final one in WWE -- and who should dethrone him, but The Undertaker at ''Judgement Day''. It two finishers ''and'' a steel chair to lay Hogan out.
** The man kicked of an '''[[Wrestling/ArnAnderson Anderson spinebuster]]''', then cradled up Ric Flair for a pin, '''WHILE STILL HOLDING THE FIGURE FOUR ON ARN.'''
** Hogan might lose by disqualification or count out, but it's very
rare and special.to see him actually lose by pinfall or submission. Considering how often he's been the champion, that presents a problem. As Hogan has had some measure of creative control at almost every point in his career, there have been only 26 times he's actually put somebody else over. But as you'll see, even when Hogan puts somebody else over, Hogan goes over.



* PunchPunchPunchUhOh: Hulking up always started with the opponent punching at the Hulkster to no avail. However, more than once this was used against him, usually to push an opponent as a more dire threat than ordinary opponents (namely, Zeus and Wrestling/TheUndertaker). During his WCW days, this happened at least once when he squared off against [[Wrestling/TheBigShow The Giant]] at Hog Wild.

** Hogan kicked out of The Undertaker's Chokeslam. But, to be fair, Undertaker kicked out of the Leg Drop.


Added DiffLines:

* TheRival:
** Wrestling/AndreTheGiant, {{Wrestling/Sting}}, Wrestling/RicFlair. Wrestling/RoddyPiper was Hogan's ArchEnemy during the early days of Hulkamania.
** The Rock. Interestingly, one month before ''[=WrestleMania=] XIX''', The Rock and Hulk Hogan would meet in a rematch of their ''[=WrestleMania=] X8'' classic. Where the year before Rocky was the face and Hogan was the heel, now the roles had changed: Hogan was on his Hulkamania Nostalgia tour, while Rock had turned heel in response to the crowd booing him for going Hollywood.
** It could be said that Wrestling/BobbyHeenan was the Luthor to Hogan's Superman. When Hogan turned heel, The Brain responded by turning Face. As did Ric Flair and the rest of The Horsemen.
