* HypeBacklash: Probably the most common target in professional wrestling, which is to be expected considering that he's the most well-known and celebrated wrestler in the world. He never was the best in-ring performer and only relied on a cookie-cutter AllAmericanFace shtick and cheesy promos that would never get over in today's wrestling.
* 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 politcking.

** The Apple Pie Indian Strap Match, thanks to an infamous bit where Hogan mispronunced "Yapapi Indian".

* AcceptableTargets: Hogan himself is one to most wrestling critics. Check out his list of awards from Wrestling/TheWrestlingObserverNewsletter on his Wikipedia page and you'll see that nearly every one is calling him the worst at everything.

* AcceptableTargets: Hogan himself is one to most of the wrestling critics.community, critics and fans alike. Check out his list of awards from Wrestling/TheWrestlingObserverNewsletter on his Wikipedia page and you'll see that nearly every one is calling him the worst at everything. Even fans who love his character have no issue mocking him and his ego, especially when he starts acting like a ''prima donna''.



* DesignatedHero: In 2010, Hogan interrupted a heartfelt speech from Jeff Jarrett, accusing him of being a glory hog who kept younger talent down in order to keep the spotlight on himself. This would be an accurate and legitimate criticism of Jarrett's career...if it hadn't come from ''Hogan'', the '''biggest''' primma donna in the history of professional wrestling. The audience of the Impact Zone was perfectly aware of this and didn't hesitate to boo Hogan out of the building.

** Smarks are generally not crazy about Hogan himself, but [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VBAHdeyn9s#t=265s even they cannot deny]] He still leaves a crowd spellbound. Those who remember when he first joined the nWo will attest: he generated real heat. So here we have a performer who's lasted roughly forty years across five major companies, able to shift seamlessly between face and heel (at least until TNA, when the Impact Zone made it clear that they wanted the old Hulkster back -- which further proves the point). His replacements? Not so much. In fact, WWE struggled in his absence until Steve Austin came along.

** The Atomic Legdrop is a FinishingMove example. Most fans deride it as BoringButPractical without much, if any, of the "Practical" part. Not helping is the fact that many wrestlers have often use far more-impressive-looking Legdrops as '''''basic''''' moves.
