This doesn’t make me hurt inside. Yesterday at Crown Jewel, Hulk Hogan made his long awaited return to the company after a few years away. While Hogan’s recent issues haven’t been the most pleasant in the world, there is no denying that he is one of the most important names in the history of WWE and wrestling as a whole. He’s more than worthy of a retrospective and that’s what we’re getting.
I still remember a lot of the commentary.
WWE has released a new Top Ten video looking at Hulk Hogan’s Greatest Moments. The video looks at a long stretch of time with a span of over thirty years. Not all of the clips are from the WWF/E and several of them are from either the 1980s or 1990s. A few of Hogan’s World Title wins are included, though there is at least one moment on the list that lead to a loss.
Opinion: As a child of the 1980s, I’ve been a Hulkamaniac for a long time so it’s very nice to see him back in the WWE fold where he belongs. He doesn’t have to show up every week but it’s nice to have him around for the bigger shows and probably at WrestleMania next year. That being said, I was surprised by the lack of the Ultimate Warrior match. The loss to the Rock was included and they could have thrown in Hogan handing him tie title after the match. That’s kind of an odd exclusion.
Which of these moments is your favorite? Are you glad Hogan is back? Let us know in the comments below.
