Default Wrestlers sacrificed to Hulk Hogan?

I just wanted to collect the list of wrestlers who otherwise would have had a good pro wrestling career, talented and all, but were brought in, built up and ultimately sacrificed to Hulkamania.

Can you name the guys who YOU think fit the above criteria?

Stranger, probably the reason there have not been many replies is this: most of the guys that were "fed" to Hogan during his run were territorial stars who had great careers, so I cannot really name a guy. By today's definition Hogan really was not "fed". Most of the guys he wrestled were main event stars in order to pack house shows, he was only "fed" rarely, because he did not do a lot of television squash matches from what I remember. The guys he beat were built up and after jobbing to Hogan then they would go on to fued with mid-card faces or they would turn face themselves. Almost all of them maintained their status in the industry because losing to Hogan back then did not really deflate your career. The idea of "feeding guys to the champ" has been done for decades, but rarely in the 80's WWF. In the 80's this was done way more in territories where guys would move in and out quickly, like World Class or Memphis where heels were fed to Von Erich or Lawler so they could move on to another territory and repeat the process. There were a couple of guys who did not belong in the business who were brought in as monsters for Hogan to defeat. Jeep Swenson (who was so bad I am not sure they even let him do a singles match vs Hogan), and Zuess.

But in the WWF like I said most of Hogan's WWF defenses were against credible opponents, who after losing to Hogan continued solid careers, and many of them returned to main event status as Hogan opponents again or they turned face and returned to prominance that way. His first defense was against Masked Superstar who left shortly afterwards before returning as one of the Machines, and then Demolition Ax. They brought Killer Kahn in to put Hogan over and he left right afterwards, and Joe LeDuc was brought in as "The Headbanger" but really dissapeared quickly after jobbing to "Rip" Hulk Hogan in "No Holds Barred".

For the most part Hogan unlike Godberg, or today's Ryback only wrestled other main event stars, and unlike Goldberg or Ryback their status did not seem tarnished by the viewers in the WWF. as for the WCW face title run, I seem to recall he only wrestled guys from the Dungeon of Doom, and guys who he wanted to get back at like Piper, and Warrior.

I'll tell you one man fed to Hulk Hogan, Bret The Hitman Hart.

what a waste of possibility. Hogan dumped a load of shit on the WWF from WM9 til KOTR. Thanks for nothing, HULK!

Did you even read the OP? Bret still went on to have an amazing career.


From what I understand, King Kong Bundy had a pretty good career in WCCW, was brought into WWE where they built him up as a monster, only to have him repeatedly job to Hogan. I'm drawing a blank on his wrestling career afterwards between the late 80's and 94/95.

Yeah, but beating Hogan clean, especially by submission, would've made Bret a bigger star. Hogan not giving him that rub was the most dickish thing he's done in his entire career IMO. Hogan would repeat this egotistical move at SummerSlam 2006 against Randy Orton.

Actually Ive heard that Hogan losing was NEVER the plan. Orton had been in trouble with the wwe all of that year and was spending the summer jobbing out to make up for it. All this "Orton going over" was internet speculation.

Hogan and Bret Hart did not have a match at all in 1993 so there was no "feeding" of Bret Hart to Hogan. And its funny how you have this big problem with Hogan refusing to job to Hart, but give Bret Hart a pass on doing THE EXACT SAME THING TO SHAWN MICHAELS. Hypocrisy at its finest.

Nope. Vader never got pinned by Hogan. Vader left to WWE where he was treated far worse, and fed to everyone on their roster, thus killing his career.
