can't really compare hogan to hbk, they may have both been assholes but HBK had the wrestling talent to back it up, not to mention he spent most of his comeback putting people over.

I'm not a Hogan hater by any mean, but same reason they dislike Cena: slightly corny, kid-friendly character, as well as his obscene booking. I'm not usually one to blame booking for things like that, since Austin was booked just as strongly as Cena, if not moreso, but Hogan's booking was on a whole other level. Plus he's a bit of a glory hound. While you certainly have a point with the HBK comparison, there was a point when Shawn completely changed, from a business standpoint. Apparently, he started declining any and all title runs, and gave a lot of rubs to younger guys like Chris Masters. On the other hand, Hogan got an Undisputed Title run when he was like 50.

Talent/charisma draws. Not size.

Hi, new here, and just started watching wrestling again. I was curious as to whatever had become of it. Looks like it's stronger than ever.

When I was a kid, everything revolved around Hulk Hogan and it was always special when he wrestled anyone. Every one of his matches I was glued to the TV. Not sure why he would be hated? I stopped watching about when I went into Jr. High, but I somewhat remember when he turned into a bad guy and went "Hollywood." Maybe that's what people are talking about?

I just know him as the main attraction in wrestling. Couldn't imagine wrestling back then without him. And talk about charisma!

I'm guessing its due to his age, and the misconception that everywhere he goes, Hogan tries to be in the spotlight.

It could also be that once given power in TNA he automatically gave jobs to his family and friends, see Bubba the Love Sponge and Brooke Hogan.

Then there is also his perceived lack of creativity, going back to trying to regain success with 90's actions, like having a stable in a powerful position, taking over a company. Though, I'm not actually sure who is in charge of story lines.

The Hogan hate seems to have died down recently, hopefully people are finally understanding what Hogan did for wrestling.

The main reason they hate Hogan is that they are probably uninformed. Hogan did a hell of a lot for wrestling, people say that Hogan was selfish? Maybe, but those same wrestlers who complain about Hogan weren't complaining when the money was rolling in because of Hogan's immense drawing power.

Hogan wasn't the greatest in the ring, but he was 6 foot 7, 300 pounds, he was never going to be a technical wizard. Also, he adapted his ring work to suit his target market. American audiences in general have shown to like repeatability, why do you think almost every top wrestler after Hogan has had a finishing sequence? Whereas Japanese markets tend to like the more wrestling purist style, which Hogan has demonstrated to some degree in New Japan. However, for a guy who isn't 'good' in the ring, he sure has had some of the best matches, i.e Hogan vs Andre, Hogan vs Warrior, Hogan vs Rock, Hogan vs Savage.

The man has started the two biggest boom periods in the history of professional wrestling, once as a face and once as a heel, you have to respect that.

Hogan put people over, he didn't job every night, but guess what he was the biggest star and biggest draw in wrestling. He launched the careers of guys like Undertaker, Warrior, Goldberg, Lesnar, and to a lesser degree Billy Kidman. And these weren't just random jobs, this was putting someone over and making them a star.

The main thing is to educate yourself, not just about Hogan but about wrestling, if you are a fan of wrestling learning more and more about the history of wrestling is great, and it would make the Greatest of all time discussion thread bearable, instead of having a 100 pages of Austin vs Rock.

You can't lump everybody with the same brush. People who hate Hogan are just work rate perverts and think Davey Richards is better than Hulk. They don't realise that if ever in the same locker room Richards would be sucking up and carrying the Hulk's bags.
