Hulk Hogan remains one of the most popular pro wrestlers in the world of professional wrestling, with his influence in the business never being understated. However, his troubled past concerning racism has ultimately led to his downfall. Seth Rollins also doesn’t think he’s good human being.

Hulk Hogan was booed at WrestleMania 37 when he was introduced with Titus O’Neil as the hosts of the pay-per-view, which all stemmed from him using racial slurs in a leaked 2015 sex tape.

Hulk Hogan is also no stranger to controversy even besides the racist remarks. A Twitter account by the name of Allan took to the social media platform and gathered a collection of Hulk Hogan’s many lies over the years.

The Wrestler director Darren Aronofsky offered him the lead role three times. Hogan claims he turned it down because “he didn’t deserve it”. Aronofsky categorically denies that Hogan was ever even considered for the role.

He was an all-state pitcher in high school, and that he was scouted by both the New York Yankees and the Cincinnati Reds, but an injury prevented him from signing with either team.

Hogan claims he’s the one who first noticed Kevin Owens’s potential. “Well, I hate to brag about it, but I’m the first one to point the finger at Kevin Owens.” After a decade of solid work in the indies.

He claimed was the first to slam Andre, that Andre weighed 600 pounds when Hogan bodyslammed him, and the lie that Andre died a few days after the slam. Hogan also claimed that he tore 18 muscles in his back slamming Andre

John Belushi sadly died in 1982, but apparently according to the Hulkster, he partied with him after WrestleMania II (in 1986).

Hulk Hogan claimed that he was asked to join a startup company, known as UFC. While UFC wasn’t nearly as popular as it is today, Hogan said he wouldn’t have joined because “guys get beat up when the fight should be stopped.”

While he was in WCW, Hogan said that a pay-per-view bout between himself and Mike Tyson was supposed to commence. Hogan’s excuse as to why it didn’t happen? “Tyson was too scared.”

Hulk Hogan did claim that, back in his heyday, he wrestled in 400 days in one year. Hogan claimed that since he traveled so frequently between the United States and Japan, the time difference made the 400 days a possibility.

Hulk Hogan will continue to make outrageous claims and be caught red-handed on numerous occasions, but that is unlikely to stop him anytime soon.
