Hulk Hogan

Growing up in the 1980s, I can admit that I was addicted to professional wrestling. And like most kids of my age my idol was none other then Hulk Hogan! The all American WWF champion represented everything that my young virgin mind though of good.

Unfortunately as a kid I never owned that ultra cool large 16" Hulk Hogan figure released from LJN Toys. But not too long ago I managed to find one on Ebay. No I don't sleep with it but I have to admit that I am extremely proud of it.

One thing that's even cooler is that I am slowly getting my son into wrestling. And no, we won't be watching that new WWE junk. Old school wrestling is what is playing at our house! And while my son is not really familiar with wrestling for some reason he knows that Hulk Hogan kick ass! Well he does but he is sadly no match to the almighty Godzilla, which still remains undefeated in our house.


  1. Yeah me too. I love the old school stuff best. There are SOME good moments of modern stuff though. Jay Lethal and Ric Flair talking it up is some of the best stuff right now. The NXT guys attacking everything in sight is also great. But Hogan vs. Andre is what I think of when it comes to wrestling.

  2. Yeah I cant wait to revisit all those classic matches with him. More good times coming....

  3. You need to get the Hulk Hogan Unreleased DVD. great set!
    And, yes the Letahl/ Flair feud on TNA is awesome. The Next storyline is lame and a total rip-off of the nWo & the New blood!
