Born Terry Eugene Bollea on August 11, 1953, Hulk Hogan is one of the most iconic figures in professional wrestling. Originating from Augusta, Georgia, Hogan has an undeniable impact on the world of wrestling, helping bring the sport into the mainstream during the 1980s and 90s.

Career History and Evolution

Hogan began his wrestling career in 1977 with the Championship Wrestling from Florida (CWF). He joined the World Wrestling Federation (now WWE) in 1979, adopting the “Hulk Hogan” persona in 1980. With his charismatic personality and signature “Hulkamania” catchphrase, he quickly rose to superstar status.
In 1993, Hogan left WWE for World Championship Wrestling (WCW), where he transformed his persona from the all-American hero to the villainous “Hollywood Hogan,” becoming the leader of the New World Order (nWo) faction.
Hogan returned to WWE in 2002 for a memorable run before departing again in 2003. He has made occasional appearances since.

Titles Won and Biggest Matches

Hogan is a 12-time world champion, including a six-time WWF World Heavyweight Champion and a six-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion.
His biggest matches include defeating Iron Sheik for his first WWF Championship in 1984, battling Andre the Giant at WrestleMania III, facing The Rock at WrestleMania X8, and clashing with Sting at WCW’s Starrcade 1997.

Biggest Rivalries and Tag Team Partners

Hogan had epic rivalries with the likes of “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, Macho Man Randy Savage, Andre the Giant, The Ultimate Warrior, and Ric Flair. His most memorable tag team partners include Macho Man Randy Savage (as “The Mega Powers”) and fellow nWo members Kevin Nash and Scott Hall.

Family Life

Hogan has two children, Brooke and Nick, with his first wife Linda. He is currently married to Jennifer McDaniel.

Finishing Move, Clothing, and Entrance Music

Hogan’s iconic finishing move is the “Atomic Leg Drop.” His wrestling attire includes yellow trunks, red knee pads, and the signature red and yellow feather boas. He often ripped his shirt off before matches, adding to his larger-than-life character.
His entrance music is “Real American” by Rick Derringer, a song that became synonymous with his “Hulkamania” persona.


Hulk Hogan’s contribution to professional wrestling is undeniable. His charisma, energy, and the rise of “Hulkamania” helped bring professional wrestling into the mainstream. He was instrumental in the success of the first several WrestleMania events, helping WWE become the global phenomenon it is today. His later work in WCW and the formation of the Nwo also had a significant influence on wrestling. Hogan is a two-time WWE Hall of Fame inductee, recognized individually and as a member of the Nwo.
