* OneMarioLimit: While it's a two-Mario limit with his first name (thanks to ComicBook/TheIncredibleHulk), but he has pretty much taken ownership of the name "Hogan" in and out of wrestling.

* CombatPragmatist: Hogan would routinely do heel spots: Choking, fingernail scrapes, closed fists -- even interfering in a match by smacking [[Wrestling/TedDiBiase DiBiase]] in the back of the head with a chair and setting up Macho (the babyface) to get the pin at ''[=WrestleMania IV=]''. Hogan is similar to "Boogie Woogie Man" Jimmy Valiant in that they trained to wrestle heel and never bothered to learn much in the other direction. However, they were both over and charismatic enough that when they heeled out on their opponents, fans accepted that the guy getting the business must've done something to deserve it.

* {{Deconstruction}} & {{Reconstruction}}: The first worked like a charm, but the second proved more difficult. Hollywood Hogan's stated reason for turning heel was that he felt fickle fans didn't appreciate all he'd done for them, ignored his charity work and avoided his films like the plague. He became a sleazy parody of what heels had always accused of him of being: a money-grubbing showboat who rewarded his friends and punished his rivals. However, he fell out of favor with the nWo in 1999, when he, Nash, and Savage began to squabble over who was going to be in charge of WCW with Flair removed from office. He reverted to his trusty red & gold and trounced Savage and Nash to a great crowd reaction -- the object of the whole nWo exercise, no doubt.

** One of the only people to ever defeat Wrestling/AndreTheGiant by pinfall. Conversely, anyone who manages to beat Hogan cleanly is considered to have done this. In fact, the list of people who have beaten Hogan ''cleanly'' can be counted on your fingers, and still have room left over. This is by design, as Hogan often used his popularity and drawing power to justify being allowed to win, and had an infamous contract with WCW that included complete Creative Control over his stories. Anytime he is questioned he wielded the Attendence figure of Wrestlemania III like a bazooka as justification of his constantly being the winner. It's worth checking, at least:

*** In Warrior's big TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to Hogan on the August 17, 1998 ''Nitro,'' he said, " Hogan - beating you means nothing anymore. Everybody already has," with Bobby Heenan adding, "Now, to Hogan, that hurts." Hogan later referenced this on the "The Self-Destruction of the Ultimate Warrior" DVD as him going into business for himself, and his promo was a "no no" as far as he was concerned.

* PrecisionFStrike: At ''Bash at the Beach 2000'', Hogan faced Wrestling/JeffJarrett in a WCW Championship where Jarrett immediately took a dive for Hogan. Annoyed, Hogan shot off with, "That's the reason why this company's in the damn shape it's in, because of BULLSHIT like this!"

** Got another one during his Mr. America stint in 2003, when Vince [=McMahon=] was taking the lie detector test. He asks "Are you the biggest ASSHOLE on God's Green Earth?"

** 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.)

* ProducePelting: His heel turn at Bash at the Beach caused the fans to litter the ring with trash, an act that would continue for a while as the nWo ran roughshod over WCW, though not to the extent that the initial turn at Bash did.

** Obviously, the famous no selling Wrestling/{{Vader}}'s powerbomb (a powerbomb that has legitimately given concussions and broken backs).

** As proof, his last bit within Wrestling/{{WCW}} was a Pay-Per-View event where he walked out to the ring and literally stepped on his opponent's chest for the pin. This led Wrestling/VinceRusso (whom the fans unanimously hated) getting ''cheered'' as he violated {{Kayfabe}} by explaining Hogan's creative control clause, which let him rewrite anything he didn't like in WCW... including the results of that match. In short, Russo -- quite possibly the biggest [[{{Hatedom}} heat magnet]] in the entire industry -- achieved in minutes what few actual wrestlers did in their professional careers: burying the mustachioed one. In typical Russo fashion, this entire exchange was a work apart from the jibe at Hogan's baldness; Hogan was so furious that he filed a real-life defamation of character suit based on that insult alone. Interviewers in the 80s were contractually banned from referring to Hogan's baldness, and it's safe to assume Hulk never removed that stipulation when he signed with WCW.
