Hulk Hogan is one of the most recognized names in wrestling. He is a twelve-time world champion, a six-time WWF Champion, and a six-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion. Hogan also has a notable acting career, with movies such as Mr. Nanny.
As of 2018, Hulk Hogan’s net worth is roughly $25 million, which makes him one of the richest wrestlers in the world; however he’s not quite a wealthy as the likes of Dwayne Johnson and John Cena.
Hulk Hogan was born Terry Eugene Bolla on the 11th August, 1953 in Augusta, Georgia. His family moved to Port Tampa, Florida, where he became involved in baseball.
An injury ended his baseball career, but not before he caught the attention of scouts from the New York Yankees and Cincinnati Reds. At 16 he began watching pro wrestling, and looked up to Dusty Rhodes.
Hogan dropped out of college to play bass for the band Ruckus, which became popular in the Tampa Bay region. His band played in several bars, and his size caught the attention of Jack and Gerald Brisco, brothers who wrestled together.
The Briscos asked a trainer for Championship Wrestling from Florida to train Hogan. He began wrestling under the persona of “The Super Destroyer” before leaving the CWF. He then went on to wrestle in a duo called Terry and Ed Boulder.
In 1979 Vincent McMahon, the owner of the WWIF, noticed Hogan’s talent. At the time he was still wrestling under his name of Bollea, but due to his size he gained the name “Hulk”.
His debut match was against Andre the Giant, which Hogan won. This match made his name known throughout the wrestling community and with fans world wide.
In 1984 he won his first WWF championship belt following his win against the Iron Sheik. Hogan quickly rose to superstardom, and boosted wrestling’s popularity among the public.
His acting career began in 1982 with a role in Rocky III, and then followed with movies such as Super Nanny. His career was terminated in the early 90s when he admitted to drug abuse.
However he made a comeback in 1996 and reinvented himself as “Hollywood Hogan”. He became part of a team with Kevin Nash and Scott Hall, returning to his former success. In 2005 he created a show called Hogan Knows Best, following the life of him and family.
