Hulk Hogan, real name Terry Bollea, is a retired professional wrestler, former bassist, and televison personality, who is a 12 time (14, if you count his 2 World title wins in the AWA) World heavyweight champion (6 in the WWF, 6 in the WCW), and one time World tag team champion (WWF, with Edge), and a one time IWGP tournament winner, in 1982, and a two time MSG Tag League tournament two years in a row, winning in 1982 and 1983 with Antonio Inoki. He is in the WWE Hall of Fame, and also the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Hall of Fame, among the many inducted in the first class. He is also still the number one all time request of the Grant-A-Wish foundtaion. He was the forefront of the wrestling boom in the 80's, appearing in movies, tv, and other media, including being the first and so far only wrestler to appear on the cover of Sports Illiustrated. That issue was the highest selling SI issue that year, behind the Swimsuit edition. Ironically, he was the last ever heavyweight champion of the WWF, and the first ever heavyweight champion of the WWE, when the WWF was forced to change it's name. Of course if you give him any credit for anything outside of "destroying" the WCW, one hundred million internet wrestling smarks will descend upon you, calling you a mark or asking you if you think pro wrestling is real, because you can't be a Hulk Hogan fan in the Internet Wrestling Community without being a blindly devoted fan or a moron. He is currently the co-host of the new American Gladiators, and the star of his reality TV show, Hogan Knows Best.
