Default A look back at the birth of HulkaMania



Hogan is coming, BROTHER! Would be awesome if next week this starts playing on RAW (as this was the moment that made WWE the juggernaut that is today) and after the video is finished then Real American hits.

There's a common misconception that it started in the WWF. It actually started in the AWA, as HULKMANIA. Then he went to the WWF and they added the extra "A.'

People hate Hogan for being a politician backstage and most of it is justified, but I'll always be grateful to him for getting me into the "sport" of professional wrestling.

Here he is with a HULKSTER shirt back in the AWA...




I was a Backlund fan, but at the time he lost the title I was ready for a change. Hogan didn't really bother me until he had his fall-out with Andre (who was my hero), and that's when he became a sworn enemy.

Correct. He appeared in Rocky III as "Thunderlips" prior to his debut in WWF as well.

That's true, but Hogan will always revise history in order to lick Vince's ass and fit his agenda.

Well, at least there's no footage of him rubbing suntan lotion on his daughters' ass in that video.

*shudder*

Except Hogan is on Johnny Carson in 1982 saying HULKAMANIA.

I've always felt that WM 3 was Hogan's peak and he could really not go any higher. Where do you go after beating Andre The Giant?

Luckily, Randy Savage caught on fire and The Mega Powers kept Hogan hot for another 2 years until he burned out by WM VI.
