Hulk Hogan is the most well-known wrestler in the history of professional wrestling. Everyone knows who he is, and they associate him with pro wrestling, and vice versa. He was the face of the WWF when that company made its national expansion, headlining the first several Wrestlemanias, including selling out the Pontiac Silverdome with Andre the Giant, creating the largest attendance record in history. He was in Rocky III, the A-Team, his own cartoon, one of the 3 Ninjas movies (okay, one of these is unlike the others), and a host of other major appearances.
He shocked the world when he went from being the biggest babyface in wrestling’s history to a straight-up vile, evil, greedy heel, leading WCW to years of ratings dominance. He can now be regularly seen on Impact! every Thursday.
He has his detractors, he’s had his flops, he’s been at the center of numerous controversies, but at the end of the day he’s had tremendous success, leading everyone else around him to success as well. The higher the tide, the more the boats can sail, as the saying goes.
He’s Hulk Hogan, the biggest name in wrestling’s history.
I’m not going to put this painting up for sale. Instead, I intend to put it up for auction, and to have all of the proceeds to the Make-a-Wish Foundation. First, I need to get the Hulkster to sign it, so that we can raise as much money as possible. Who’s going to help make that happen?
