Hogan Spin

Specifically citing this quick interview (http://www.orlandosentinel.com/sports/wrestling/os-hulkster-back-on-track-looking-for-one-more-match-20140822,0,7466942.post ) where he has a chance to put some caveats on his "one last match" rhetoric, is the Hulkster the single most legendary spin artist of all time or has he ACTUALLY learned something from age and suffering?

Oh sure, and Andre was totally 900 pounds when Hulk slammed him in front of 200,000 people too, brother.

  1. Hulk Hogan's an asshole.

  2. Hogan is like the source of your screen name.

  3. Yeah... you know what? He's actually more of an asshole than Mr. Satan. He never would have made friends with Majin Buu.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Yes he would, but Majin Buu would have eventually turn on him for taking advantage of his naivete.

  5. Ah Hulk Hogan. The former almost bass player for Metallica. The guy that picked up and slammed 12,000 pound Andre the Giant in front of an audience of 1 million fans that packed into the Silverdome.

    He can't wrestle. He can barely walk. Therefore, I wanna see it happen. His body would likely crumble if he did the atomic leg drop.

    Yes...Hulk Hogan spent most of his adult life wrestling. He wants to wrestle one more time...With that out of the way can we discuss Maya on GMW? I mean I am pretty sure she's a virgin but what with the parent issues, and her experience on the subway she has had some fingers down there right?

  8. Hogan is awesome - he lives and breathes his character even at 80 years old and we're all going to miss him when he dies. I'd be cool with seeing him do the Hulking Up routine one last last last last last time

    What's the most matches a wrestler has had in one day? Like a TV taping, big tournament, etc. Hogan's "more than 365 matches in a year, time zones, brother!" comment made me wonder.

    ReplyDelete
  10. ... But he is Immortal....

    ReplyDelete
  11. Hogan would've claimed he reversed Buu's candy beam and ate him, brother.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Hogan may only wrestle again if we get the US debut of the AXE BOMBAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I'm sure there's no definitive answer, but I assume it would have been in the old territory days when guys would regularly wrestle two or three matches. I'm sure some guy had a battle royal, a single, a tag and then jobbed under a mask.

    Savage, Savio, and Foley at 4 'til someone tops it.

  15. The thing that struck me about Hogan since he started this "one more match" thing is his saying that the leg drop was a mistake and he really should have made the sleeperhold or the axe bomber as a finish because it made no sense for him to talk up his 24 INCH PYTHONS BROTHER and use a big boot and leg drop as a finish.

    It was a rare moment of self-awareness.

  16. I may get a lot of flack for this post but there is something endearing about Hogan that you don't see too often among wrestlers.

    Hogan rarely seems to be bitter about life, doesn't hold grudges, and generally seems to be an upbeat positive person.

  17. I only read the first couple of paragraphs but it was one hell of a babyface promo. Don't know if his body can take it but I'm down for one more run if this is the character he's going to run with.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Triple H worked 5 shit matches on an episode of Smackdown in 1999.

    ReplyDelete
  19. He used the Axe Bomber in a match against Terry Funk.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'm not remotely interested in ever seeing Hogan step foot in a ring again. I could give a flying fuck about Hulkamania.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I've been feeling that way since 1989!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Benoit did that two out of three falls match with Angle and then later had to team with Jericho in that tag team turmoil match.


    Yeah, technically it's only two matches, but the first went for three falls and the other was at least three tag teams he had to face?

    ReplyDelete
  23. And against Paul Roma at Survivor Series 1990.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Dont knowbut isnt the first time he posted that today.

    My feelings ever since he insisted on going over the best performer in the business at the time, Shawn Michaels, which was less believable than Zack Gowen going over Matt Hardy

    ReplyDelete
  26. I didn't know that. Did he yell AXE BOMBAHHHHHHH! before he did it?

    ReplyDelete

    "Hogan rarely seems to be bitter about life"


    Well when you exaggerate everything about your achievements in your mind, what's to feel bitter about?

    Don't make fun of the Andre thing; he died the day after Hogan slammed him, so show some respect

    ReplyDelete
  29. No. But I know I did when I rewatched it. AXE BOMBAAAAAAHHHHHHHH. Just like any US Liger match isn't complete without muting the sound and screaming LIIIIIGAAAAAAH BOOOOMMMAAAAAHH

    ReplyDelete
  30. Dude's been "working" one way or another for the past 35 years... he's got it down by now.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Even in the panels he does... he passes off some of his praise onto others. He tried like hell to put over Cesaro for slamming Big Show over the top rope at WM.

    ReplyDelete
  32. He's like a grandpa now. He's a lovable novelty. I think he's embraced that role now. Something he should have done 15 years ago.

    ReplyDelete
  33. It was such a shit show that Undertaker left the business that night and joined a biker gang.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Just when you think talking wrestling on the internet can't get any dorkier...

    ReplyDelete
  35. It's the punches beforehand that does it. The big boot and legdrop are just icing on the cake.

  36. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarAugust 24, 2014 at 1:05 PM

    He was only in his late-40s 15 years ago! Maybe he didn't need to be main eventing, but there was no reason for him to be a lovable grandpa novelty in 1999.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yeah, and it was the 80s when this stuff was all taken way less seriously, but I think that's why I was genuinely shocked to hear him actually mention that his finishing sequence was really dumb and incongruent with his whole schtick.

  38. Threadjack - Vince McMahon turns 69 today, which is the same age Vince Sr passed away at.


    Vince will die in the next 365 days wont he :( No way Vinnie Mac turns down the chance to die at such an iconic age.
