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 a 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.
After Hogan defeated Vince McMahon at WrestleMania XIX, he was fired from WWE. Hogan returned to the company under a new gimmick known as Mr. America. He continued his feud with Vince McMahon but eventually left as Hogan was unhappy with his pay.
While speaking on his Something to Wrestle podcast, Bruce Prichard revealed that the original plan for Hulk Hogan’s feud with Vince McMahon would have seen the chairman shaving his head. This would take place after McMahon lost another match to Hulk Hogan.
“There was [a plan for the end of the Mr. America angle] and it was pretty much the idea was to shave Vince [McMahon’s] head and have a hair versus mask match and shave Vince’s head but, look, it was all based on the Midnight Rider angle that Dusty [Rhodes] had done in Florida and [Bill] Watts and everybody under the sun had done some version of it and this was our version of it with [Hulk] Hogan and it eventually would bring Hogan back.”
Hulk Hogan is also no stranger to controversy even besides the racist remarks. This includes the numerous outrageous lies which he said over the years, which you can check out here.
