    It's show business. Not show friends. Hogan was looking out for numero uno brother.

    Hogan always sucked, his whole career was a depressing cycle of self-promotion and backstabbing. He hated to lose and constantly buried young talent. He overplayed his monster of the week gimmick then hitched his wagon to the hottest angle in pro-wrestling, an idea he had nothing to do with. He parlayed his success in WWE to an embarrassing acting career, followed by an embarrassing reality show that destroyed his family.

    He capped off these lowlights by banging his friends wife on hidden camera and saying some very racist things on the phone. He is currently dating his daughter... I mean a women who looks just like his daughter. Hulk will always be found centre stage putting himself over everyone else around him.

    The thing that Hogan did that made him unredeemable in my eyes was induct Randy into the WWE HOF. Acting like they were buddy buddy knowing full well Randy hated him and wanted to kick his ass.

    more than anything, he deserves shame for bringing along Brutus Beefcake/Brother Bruti/Disciple/85 other lame WCW gimmicks with him everywhere

    I was such a mark when I was younger. It took me the longest time to figure out that The Disciple was Beefcake.

    the way he choked out Richard Belzer while promoting Wrestlemania, and then dropped him like a sack of potato's while Mr. T stood there does deserve a smidge of credit

    just for the sheer audacity

    It was back when people parasailed they stood on the beach and the boat took off to lift them into the air. For some odd reason, he was standing directly in front of his friend who was about to go. Instead of going up, she shot straight forward and basically double kneed him in the face with the force of a ski boat. Paramedics said his face resembled a plate of spaghetti and was basically being held together in place by his friends when they arrived on the scene :eek:

    This right here kills anything you tried to say after
    You either didnt actually watch his entire career or youre being dishonest
    Theres a lotta negative things you can say about him but Hulkamania doesnt happen and he doesnt take the country by storm in the 80's without a shitload of talent and charisma

    It's not a mindset. Its the fact of business.

    Ventura can stick it brother. Because if it wasn't for Hulk Hogan, we wouldn't be in this thread . If it wasn't for Hulk Hogan, Jessie Ventura would still be selling meat from a truck in Minneapolis. And if it wasn't for Hulk Hogan, all of these Johnny come latelys that you see out here wrestling wouldn't be here. Hulk was selling the world out brother while they were bumming gas to put in their car to get to high school.

    Ventura was always threatening to come out of retirement and beat Hogan, he never manned up and did it. By the end Gorilla Monsoon wasn’t even taking the threat seriously.

    You sound like a fucking idiot. This isnt a 30 second tv add, were not here for soundbites.

    Do you want to elaborate what you mean and how it morally justifies such actions?

    You mean you want me to elaborate on a topic that should've been taught to you in highschool?

    Jeez man. Don't be mad at me, be mad at Hogan or Vince.

    The only person to see straight through him was Piper. Piper knew if he ever did the job clean to Hogan it was over, so he never did.
