Biography

Born Terry Bollea, Hulk Hogan is a former professional wrestler and one of the biggest stars in the history of the business. He started in Championship Wrestling from Florida in the late 1970s and also wrestled for Southeastern Championship Wrestling (Alabama), the Continental Wrestling Association (Memphis), Georgia Championship Wrestling, the American Wrestling Association (Minneapolis) and New Japan Pro Wrestling. He is best known for his work for World Wrestling Entertainment and World Championship Wrestling. He ended his in-ring career in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling. He is a former 6x WWE World Heavyweight Champion, a former 5x WCW World Heavyweight Champion, a former NWA Southeastern Heavyweight Champion (as Sterling Golden), a former WWE World Tag Team Champion with Edge, a 2x Royal Rumble winner (1990 and 1991) and was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2005.


Fandom

He revolutionized how wrestling was marketed twice, first as a Face in the 1980s with Hulkamania, and then in WCW in the 1990s as a heel as the leader of the NWO. He was one of the biggest draws in wrestling history. To this day, you can find wrestling fans wearing either the red and yellow (Face) or black and white (Heel).

Fan Community Nicknames

Hulkamaniacs, of course. The Ur-Example for wrestling.

Pairings

Minimal. What there is on AO3 is all Slash and all Crack Ships/Squick, as he gets paired with the much younger John Cena and Justin Gabriel.
