Re: The Other Side: Hulk Hogan's place in history

Firstly, this forum is fast becoming my favourite place on the internet.

Anyhoo , Hogan had incredible ring psychology. He knew how to work a crowd and people often forget that he was a BIG man and for that his athleticism is fairly oustanding. That said, he didn't have a massive move set but he didn't really need one. He could sell, sometimes he oversold with all the twitching etc but he knew how to make a heel look great.

Agreed it's the "perfect" forum.

Re: The Other Side: Hulk Hogan's place in history

In the context people are flaunting around ring psychology here, makes it seem to me that they are referring to the way he works his matches. And if that is the case, then you are sorely mistaken. Sure, he knew exactly what to do to sell the heel off, but you should probably cut down the broad spectrum of 'psychology' into something smaller. If we are to define intelligent offensive psychology, then Hogan is nowhere, because he was played as the underdog, he did not 'work' matches. Matches where he needed to work over the babyface were atrocious. Watch any WCW PPV. You'll find max 2 good matches from him, and that's stretching it.

But to give credit, he had in the WWF which worked so well. The type of psychology that Hogan excelled with was taking the beatdown, putting the heel over, and then claiming the victory. The type of victory that people these days associate with 'burying', when it's so far from that. Point is, cut down your definition of the word. It's too general. He is nowhere near the total package as a ring worker. And that is even if we take out the finesse of a 'technical' worker.

Where would you place Hulk Hogan in terms of his skill between the bells? This includes ability to work the crowd, mat skills, technical ability, ring psychology and everything that you can think off that happens during the match?

How much credit would you give to him? Would you concur with "he does not know the difference between a wrist lock and wrist watch" or he is good doing what he does best?

Again, please do not bring in drawing and boom into this.
Hogan is wrestling.

Hogan is a larger then life character.

I hope he get more love and respect before he's gone.

We only appreciate people when they left this earth.
