Yeah, when I said he never appeared, I meant that he never actually appeared live and in person. He never defended the title. When the WWF came to Europe on the European Rampag tour, Hogan didn't come - despite being Champion. While he never showed up to the tapings, he did record a few promos / interview segments which were shown. This promo must've been taped pretty soon after Wrestlemania 9 because Hogan still had his black eye.

Looking here, it seems that Hogan wrestled Yokozuna at a few House Shows in the summer (July/August) but, considering that Mr. Nanny was opening at the same time, it's pretty clear that he was promoting his movie. He also wrestled a couple of matches against The Beverly Brothers leading up to Wrestlemania and Money Inc three or four times after. He defended his WWF title only once; against Yokozuna at the King of the Ring. More matches than I initially thought but still nowhere near enough public appearances for a WWF Champion.
