Who is Hulk Hogan?
Terry Eugene Bollea was born in Augusta, Georgia USA, on 11 August 1953 – his zodiac sign is Leo, and he holds American nationality. He was probably the most popular wrestler in the ‘80s, and is perhaps still known best for the time he spent wrestling for World Wrestling Federation (WWF).
Hulk was raised by his father Pietro ‘Peter’ Bollea who was a construction foreman, and who passed away on 18 December 2001, aged 88, and his mother Ruth V. (nee Moody) who was a dance teacher, and who died on 1 January 2011, also aged 88. When Hulk was less than two years old, his father moved the family to Port Tampa, Florida.
He grew up playing baseball, and competed in Little League Baseball; even though Hulk had a bright future in front of him, as both the Cincinnati Reds and the New York Yankees were interested in him, he suffered an injury which forced him to give up on baseball. He was 16 when he started watching wrestling on TV, while he was also interested in music while attending a local high school; he played fretless bass guitar in a couple of rock bands. Upon matriculating in 1971, Hulk enrolled at Hillsborough Community College and eventually transferred to the University of South Florida, but dropped out, wanting to pursue music. He co-formed the trio Ruckus in 1976, and they went on to become quite popular around Florida; Hulk spent the majority of his spare time at Hector’s Gym, and it was there that he was noticed by the Brisco brothers, who convinced Hulk to try out wrestling.
He was trained by the late Japanese professional wrestler Hiro Matsuda, and had his first match on 10 August 1977 against Brian Blair, for Championship Wrestling from Florida (CWF). Because Hulk was dissatisfied with Hiro, he quit wrestling and became the manager of The Anchor club.
After having opened his own gym, Hulk returned to wrestling, and on 1 December 1979 won the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) Heavyweight Championship (Northern Division), but lost the title to Bob Armstrong only a month later. In 1979 and 1980, Hulk wrestled in World Wrestling Federation (WWF), and between 1980 and 1985 competed in New Japan Pro-Wrestling.
He returned to WWF in 1983, and wrestled for them for the following decade. Between 1994 and 2000, he wrestled in World Championship Wrestling and was the World Heavyweight Champion between 1994 and 1996.
Hulk has been wrestling to this day, but has quit then returned to World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) five times, and has also retired and returned to wrestling a couple of times. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on 15 July 2018, and most recently, on 10 April 2021, Hulk opened the event WrestleMania 37.
He’s also an actor, and some of his most notable performances have been in the 1982 sports movie “Rocky III”, the 1996 Christmas comedy film “Santa with Muscles” (lead role) and a 2001 episode of the action crime series “Walker, Texas Ranger”.
Hulk’s a devout Christian, and has said that Christ has saved his life; he contemplated suicide after his wife Linda divorced him, and has stated that Christ and his friend Laila Ali prevented him from taking his own life.
