Hulk Hogan 5 Most Embarrassing Moments. The 5 Most Embarrassing Moments for Hulk Hogan
Hogan Can’t Light a Match
The mighty Hulk Hogan played the bad guy in this 1998 wrestling match against long time rival The Ultimate Warrior. It took place at the WCW Halloween Havoc pay per view and both wrestlers were way past their prime. The only reason the match was booked was because WCW was making loads of money bringing in former washed up WWF stars and because Hogan’s ego needed a win over Warrior to validate himself as the “greatest ever.”
A Stone Cold Snub
Here’s a news flash. Not all pro wrestlers get along. It’s a very selfish ego driven business. And often, if you can’t play backstage politics, you don’t succeed. Hogan is known as a master backstage politician, and has burned many bridges with several superstars. One of those guys is “Stone Cold” Steve Austin. In 2006, both wrestlers were a part of the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony.
Hulkster Fears Analog
The champ has only been defeated by a handful of opponents, but his hated opponent wasn’t Andre the Giant. In 2008, Hulk Hogan met his most hated opponent in the form of analog tape. Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, visited his son Nick Bollea several times while he was serving a prison sentence for reckless driving.
From Arenas to the White House
In one of Hulk Hogan’s more bizarre publicity stunts, in 1998, the 300 pound admitted steroid user announced he would be running for President. Yes, that President. The President of the United States of America. Hulk Hogan made all the rounds on the late night talk show circuit, spouting non-sense and hyperbole. His interviews came off goofy.
The Dungeon of Doom
Despite all these embarrassing moments, or maybe even because of them, Hulk Hogan remains one of the most beloved figures of our times. He’s like the dopey uncle that makes up outrageous stories and exaggerations. At the most, you take him with a grain of salt, but the moment he’s gone, and you’ll miss him forever.
