--->'''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VBAHdeyn9s Bryan Alverez]]''': That man knows how to get everything out of '''NOTHING'''. And very few people know how to do that. Does that mean Hulk Hogan should be on top? ''Fuck'' no...BUT: he does have a point. Young guys today could learn something from Hogan on how to get something outta less.
** Somewhat subverted as he was the biggest draw in wrestling at the time, invincible certainly for the audience, but not very boring until later years at least.

less.



** The problem with this didn't really become apparent until his time in Wrestling/{{WCW}}; a good portion of WCW's fanbase had it in for Hulk and all things [[Wrestling/{{WWE}} WWF]] from day one, and Hogan didn't exactly endear himself by making everyone on the roster look bad so [[TorchTheFranchiseAndRun he could rest easy]] while on vacation or shooting a ''Three Ninjas'' film... When Monday Nitro was started with main-event-quality matches every week and WCW started airing Pay-Per-View events every month, Hogan was exposed as formulaic and lazy performer. Thankfully, a truly shocking FaceHeelTurn [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap may have saved his career]].
*** His invincibility hit particularly egregious levels during ''Uncensored'' '96 just prior to turning heel. He and Wrestling/RandySavage took on the Four Horsemen AND the Dungeon of Doom (a total of EIGHT men) and squashed them.

* CurbStompBattle: In 1985, Wrestling/RandySavage got Wrestling/MissElizabeth to climb into the ring before one of Hogan's matches and ask "why he doesn't wrestle anyone with credentials." [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FSibIrjAuTw Judging by what he then did to jobber Rusty Brooks,]] he was, let's say, a bit put out by the accusation.

** Was himself on a rare receiving end at King of the Ring 1993, courtesy of Yokozuna. Hogan was barely able to do anything offensively (and even the Atomic Leg Drop failed to score him anything more than a 2-count!) thanks to both Yoko's StoneWall weight and his PlayingWithFire "cameraman" secretly in his corner, culminating in Hogan being himself defeated via Leg Drop for once -- followed by a post-match KickThemWhileTheyAreDown on top of it. The end result: He was unable to even go out as a GracefulLoser, having to be carried out as a beaten, broken man by several other faces. And worse, this was the very last image that anyone had of him in the WWF/E before he subsequently debuted in WCW.

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

* BeardOfAwesome / BeardOfEvil: Depends whether he is a face or heel. And contrary to popular belief, it wasn't a sprayed-or-painted on beard. It was dyed dark though, which made it occasionally look painted on.

His given name is '''Terry Gene Bollea''' (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.

* OverprotectiveDad:
** He suspended [[Wrestling/TheDudleyBoys Bully Ray]], a man who's consistently sided with him easily more often than not during his three years in TNA. Why? For dating his daughter Brooke. According to Hogan, this broke some sort of unwritten wrestler's code, brother! ...however this falls flat when you consider that not only is Brooke a legal adult at 24 who's moved out of her parents' house and thus can make her own decisions, but Bully and Hulk's age gap is actually bigger than Bully and Brooke's.
** Fences were mended on the 1/31/13 ''Impact Wrestling'' episode when Hogan finally reinstated the Bully....[[FalseReassurance BWAHAHAHAH or not.]]

** He was ProperlyParanoid. In 2007 Hogan knew Vince [=McMahon=] was upset with him for getting drunk and leaking the names of then up coming Hall of Fame inductees over the radio. Since had Hulk gotten Brooke in a angle already it is not hard to see why he jumped to that conclusion. Still, a lot could have been salvaged with a little conversation.

* FollowTheLeader: The bodybuilder look, the long blonde hair, calling people "Brother," and even the "Twenty-four inch pythons" catchphrase all came from Wrestling/SuperstarBillyGraham.
