WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan is one of the biggest and most influential names in the pro wrestling business and has accomplished a lot in the industry. That said, he is also known for his erratic and peculiar antics. It appears that Hulk Hogan has been accused of injuring a referee during a botched spot.
Hulk Hogan is a legendary figure in the world of professional wrestling, with his name being synonymous with the sport. While he may no longer be as beloved as he once was, there’s no denying just how important Hogan has been to the industry.
While speaking on Road Trip After Hours with WWE Hall of Famer Teddy Long and Mac Davis, Earl Hebner talked about a spot where Hulk Hogan injured him during a match against Andre the Giant for the World Heavyweight Championship in February 1988.
Earl tried to impersonate his twin brother, the late Dave Hebner. However, Hulk Hogan sent him flying out of the ring. Earl stated that Hogan didn’t work according to the plan and injured him during the spot.
“Listen, we were at the warehouse and we practiced that damn thing over and over. Hogan picked me up and he was like going to hand me to them, right? When he picked me up and started running, in my mind I’m going ‘This ain’t the program, this ain’t what the hell we’ve been over’. And brother, he launched me and the only people that could have caught me would have been the people in the tenth row.
DiBiase, Virgil, and Andre were supposed to catch me but he was supposed to throw me to them. Brother, I thought I was going into space and then when I hit the floor I crushed my rotator cuff in my shoulder. But I was so excited I didn’t realize how bad I was hurt right then.
Hulk Hogan also ruled out the possibility of competing in final match. Regardless, we will have to wait and see what the future holds for Hulk Hogan.
