Hulk Hogan Celebrity Wrestling:Hulk Hogan
Say the word "wrestling" to anyone, and the name Hulk Hogan instantly comes to mind. For nearly three decades, the Hulkster has been the supreme icon in the wrestling world, headlining and selling out shows at stadiums all over the globe, while helping to transform sports entertainment into a billion-dollar industry -- not to mention being idolized by millions of little Hulkamaniacs ages 1 to 100.
A multi-time former WWE Champion of the world, Hogan has taken on all the greats -- from King Kong Bundy and the Iron Sheik to Triple H and The Rock. In the process he has headlined 10 WrestleManias, including WrestleMania III, when 93,173 fans packed the Silverdome in Pontiac, Mich., to see him body slam the 500-pound Andre the Giant. His fans never fail to rise to their feet whether he's tearing off his shirt, flying from the top rope, dropping his famed big boot and leg drop on an opposing wrestler or engaging in a post-match posing ritual, which is second to none.
Hogan's resumé outside the ring is just as impressive. In 2005, his immense popularity led him to star in Hogan Knows Best, his own reality series which followed his eccentric household, VH1's highest rated show in history. The only wrestler ever to be featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated, he has starred in numerous major motion pictures including Rocky III opposite Sylvester Stallone. He is a frequent guest on The Tonight Show and Live With Regis & Kelly and even starred in his own TV series, Thunder in Paradise.
In 2005, Hogan was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by his longtime friend, Stallone, but that move hardly pinned him into retirement. Fans can now watch Hulk on NBC where he hosts American Gladiators with Laila Ali.Download a printable mask of Hulk Hogan here.
