It is not an overstatement to claim that the professional wrestling industry will never see another personality quite like Hulk Hogan. Hogan helped the WWE go from being a regional territory into one that took over the national and then international wrestling industry. The name Hulk Hogan became one synonymous with the wrestling business, and the man went from being known as just a pro wrestler to an individual who was featured in television shows and movies. One could even go so far as to claim that Hogan became even bigger than World Wrestling Entertainment.
Hogan has been in the news throughout 2016 for reasons that have nothing to do with his career in or out of the ring. A strange case involving Hogan and the media group Gawker has resulted in the performer being awarded over $100 million in damages all because of a tape that probably never should have been released to the public in the first place. Exactly how much money, if any, Hogan will receive because of the matter is not known as of the posting of this piece. What is known, though, is that the contents of that video are not the only crazy real life stories of Hulk Hogan that have been made public.
The crazy thing about the supposed life of Hulk Hogan is that we who do not personally know the wrestler cannot say for sure what is true and what has been fabricated by Hogan. Hogan has, in the past, been caught telling what we will generously refer to as “tall tales” on numerous occasions. One would find himself busy reading multiple posts if he was to search “Hulk Hogan lies” via his favorite Internet search service. Regardless of all that has happened, Hogan still has a massive fan base that will continue to love the Hulkster no matter what.

1 Harley Race Pulled a Gun on Hogan
It is one of the most famous urban legends about Hogan that is supposedly accurate. National Wrestling Alliance legend Harley Race was so angry about the WWE invading NWA territory in the 1980s that Race actually pulled a gun on Hogan backstage during a WWE event. While Race threatened to harm Hogan, nothing too terrible actually occurred on that fateful night. Those who have told the story about this altercation are, of course, workers, so you will have to choose what you do and do not believe. We are all just glad that Race didn't pull the trigger, as Hogan went on to mean quite a bit to many of us following that evening.
