What happened to Hercules Hernandez?

This guy had an INCREDIBLE physique around 1987 and had a solid little push. After turning face he kind of hit a wall, even though he got a pretty decent pop with his chain swinging. During his last run in Power & Glory he had lost almost all of his definition and his body hardly resembled the Greek God physique he used to have.

Was he just a product of an antiquated generation of muscle heads that fizzled out during the early 90s or did he sustain a serious injury? Maybe a falling out with Vince?

I just watched WMlll and also the 1992 Royal Rumble and it's hard to believe it's the same guy.

Well I know about the steroid scandal and everyone getting off by 1992, but he regressed before that took place. When Herc had diminished, the likes of the Warlord, Texas Tornado, and British Bulldog were still yoked to the gills. I don't know how to embed pics, but even from 87 to 90 was a pretty steep drop off. Unlike say Hogan or Warrior who definitely were effected by the scandal.

Re: What happened to Hercules Hernandez?

Ahhhh Hercules. Always used to walk around the ring with his legs out wide like he had shit his pants. And those Blue tights looked so bad they were awesome. One of my absolute favourites from back in the day.

Really late in his Power and Glory run I always thought his face looked really puffed up and swollen. At some stages it almost looked like a different person.

Funny that for a guy billed as "Hercules" I only ever remember him doing 1 thing impressive and that was slamming Akeem in a one-on-one match.

One of my all time favorites, he actually looked like Hercules! Great talent and severely underrated.

He got fired because he closelined a drunk Vince on a night out, and Vince said "If I remember this in the morning, I'll fire you" He remembered, and it was good night Herc
