* LoveItOrHateIt: Hogan is either a great entertainer despite his personal flaws, or an evil S.O.B. who has no talent and only got to the top through dumb luck and politicking.

** Another example: His acting during the ''Main Event'' in 1989 (one year after his loss to Andre), which culminated in RandySavage's heel turn over accusations of lusting after Elizabeth. During the Mega Powers' matchup with the nefarious Twin Towers (BigBossMan and [[Wrestling/TheOneManGang Akeem]]), Savage was thrown out of the ring and onto Elizabeth, knocking her out cold. A distraught Hogan, sure that he was going to be helping to plan Liz's funeral, carried her limp body back to the dressing room and begged the doctors to do more than they could to save her life, all the while showing complete disregard for Savage as Boss Man and Akeem were beating him from pillar to post.

*** WildMassGuessing: When Hulk found himself inside the Dungeon of Doom, he thought that he was in [=Hell=] and when he found that the water wasn't hot, he figured, "OK, the ''good'' news is that I'm not in Hell? But then, where AM I?"

** Hulkster will always be remembered as a selfish, senile old man who kept down the young talents at any cost. While he has admitted he wants to maintain a higher profile than everyone else (he's earned it, you see), he also jobbed to stars that had great potential like Warrior and Goldberg. Additionally, the haters seems to ignore that Hulk Hogan is also doing good deeds as [[http://www.brethart.com/bio/columns/tribute-hulk-hogan Bret Hart said]]. Every rumor is automatically believed, [[TheTysonZone no matter how wild or fallacious]], while the good deeds go unacknowledged.

** He also briefly switched to a black and white outfit that was eerily similar to his nWo garb in late '95 during his feud with the Alliance to end Hulkamania. Even funnier is that after he (temporarily) went back to the red and yellow garb, he talks about how Sting is one of his best friends and always would be. Yeah...

* HilariousInHindsight: When Hogan wrestled in Japan in the early 80's, he did so wearing black, silver, and white trunks, knee pads and boots as a Face, a full decade before the nWo.

** Hogan's creative control clause only applied to his own angles and matches. He was unquestionably a contributing factor in the death of WCW, but his detractors would have you believe that he killed it single handedly.

* BrokenBase: Hulk getting removed from the WWE Website and essentially being made an Unperson after a racist rant of his from a decade prior was leaked in the summer of 2015. Most fans agree that it's a bit of an overreaction on the WWE's part, with some pointing out that this is hardly the worst thing Hogan has done and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzZcMoUxSFQ that the WWE's own history with racial equality hasn't been flawless]]. Others have pointed out the ''very'' suspicious timing in that it was leaked right before Hogan was taking Gawker to court over his sex tape that Gawker has exclusive access to. Hogan took them to court for a hundred million dollars, while Gawker only made around forty five million in traffic in 2014. The court ruled in favour of Hogan, and he was awarded $115 million, plus punitive damages could increase that reward to nearly ''half a billion dollars''. It's also curious that for all its talk of equality and progressiveness, Gawker had very few non white people among its staff, especially the higher ups.

* NarmCharm: If any other wrestler used a basic leg drop as their finisher, they'd be laughed out of the ring. Hogan made it work however, solely cause he was Hogan.

* XPacHeat: While most fans clearly love the Hogan character, Bollea himself tends to get this trope due to his ItsAllAboutMe and {{Jerkass}} moments in RealLife. "Hogan Sucks" chants were common in late-era WCW.
