held the #BashAtTheBeach #pressconference
At Bash at the Beach ’98, we needed a main event and Rodman was still hot. So despite all my misgivings, I ended up working with him a second time.
The good news was Karl Malone wanted to get some action this time. So we made it Hulk Hogan and Dennis Rodman against Diamond Dallas Page and Karl Malone. Malone was the exact opposite of Dennis Rodman. If Rodman was in great shape, Karl Malone was in ten times better shape. This guy was ripped. I wouldn’t have believed it, but with his shirt off, he was like a bodybuilder. And he was strong as hell. He took me into the ring and threw me around in places I wasn’t planning on going. He was gifted. I can’t say enough good things about him.
So there was Karl Malone on one side of the fence and he was training hard, brother. He was doing sit-ups, he was running, he was jumping. He was taking classes to get himself in even better shape than before. Diamond Dallas Page, who’s such a detail freak, he’s nuts, had Karl Malone pumped enough to jump to the moon. Then there was my tag-team partner Dennis Rodman on the other side of the fence, and he wasn’t doing a damn thing except getting drunk. I said, “Man, we’re going to get killed.” - Hollywood @HulkHogan

Wrestling Dontaku - Fukuoka Dome, Fukuoka, Japan - 3.5.1993
Super Dream Match
Hulk Hogan vs The Great Muta
PART ONE OF MATCH
Less than a month after reclaiming the WWF Championship, Hulk Hogan appeared at NJPW's Wrestling Dontaku in a match with IWGP Heavyweight Champion, The Great Muta.
Very little attention was given to Hogan on WWF TV post-WrestleMania IX, until a couple of weeks before the rematch with Yokozuna at King of the Ring in June.
In a 1994 interview, Hulk Hogan would explain:
Over the last few years, I’ve been playing mind games with the wrestling business. My heart and soul hasn’t really been in it.
Basically it was a case of where the promotion and I did not get along and couldn’t reach an agreement on the direction we wanted to go. We had contrasting ideas, creative differences. You know, Vince McMahon had other wrestlers he wanted to place in the spotlight. At the time, I thought that Hulkamania could generate more interest, he thought otherwise.

Whatcha gonna do when Lobomania runs wild on you?!
Another little pick up at the toy fair Saturday, been keeping an eye out for this version of Hulk Hogan for a while as it was the very first wrestling figure I had as a kid. I must of had 50+ by the end and sold them all at a car boot sale 😭
Whatcha gonna do, when Hulk Hogan and Odd Sox run wild on you, brother! 💪
Shawn Michaels is the "Showstopper," the "Main-Event," "Mr. WrestleMania." Ric Flair was "The Man." The Rock was "The Great One," and The Undertaker is "The Phenom." But there is only one man that can be described as all of the above monikers.
He's your favorite wrestler's...favorite wrestler.
His name is Hulk Hogan—the greatest WWE superstar that ever lived.
If you were a kid in the '80s and '90s, you were a Hulk Hogan fan (whether you care to admit it now or not). You had his action figure, you watched his cartoon. Hell, you waited outside for the ice cream truck so you could get one of those WWF ice cream bars and prayed you had Hogan's.
Hulk Hogan is THE name synonymous with professional wrestling in mainstream America... In the mainstream universe BROTHER!
Hulk Hogan made his wrestling debut in 1977 after being trained by the legendary Hiro Matsuda.
He started wrestling in southern NWA territories where he teamed up with Ed Leslie (aka Brutus Beefcake) as brothers Terry and Ed Boulder.
After a talk show appearance where he made Lou Ferrigno look like Hornswoggle, Hogan began to use the name Terry "The Hulk" Boulder.
Hogan's size and muscle made him a favorite with fans, and he caught the eye of Terry Funk, who introduced him to Vince McMahon Sr.
McMahon Sr. changed his last name to Hogan, and things took off from there.
Hogan was Vince's main attraction and the man he picked to help him take over the wrestling business.
Hogan took the wrestling world by storm, and Hulkamania was born.
For the next 10 years, Hogan fought in areas all across the country and around the world, ripping off his shirt, cupping his ear to the fans, and "hulking up" much to our delight.
Hulk Hogan transcended the wrestling business, and every WWE fan is indebted to him.
He thought us to train hard, say our prayers, and eat our vitamins.
He asked us the only question that matters: "What'cha gonna do? What'cha gonna do when the power of Hulkamania runs wild on you?" What we did was tune in week after week to be entertained by THE greatest of all time... And we haven't stopped since.

's debut on #AmericanGladiators
with his childhood hero, @hulkhogan
, doing the introduction from the Memorial Sports Arena in Los Angeles, California.
Rumor had it that Hulk was trying to get a bigger gladiator, like a wrestler, but somebody in the form of this Beast character. Long story short, my agent wanted me to at least audition for it. At the time I think I’d shaved my head almost, I think I’d cut my beard completely off, and didn’t look very beast-like, if you will.
I remember auditioning for them in California, in Los Angeles, and I had to go through like four or five different auditions. Eventually, they told me to start growing my hair out, start growing my body hair out, things like that, so right then and there I started getting – obviously – the feeling that I got this role.
When I shot American Gladiators, Josh Barnett was there backstage and he was going bananas because he loves pro wrestling and had a hundred questions about it.
I assure you there wasn’t a bigger Hulkamaniac in this business more than Matt Morgan. - NZPWI interview March 19, 2012
