The Hogan family has been the talk of the town in recent years, as the iconic Hulk Hogan found himself in some hot water after his sex tape leaked out to the audience and, fuelled with his racist rant, got him fired from the WWE. Hogan might be the reason why the WWE and wrestling in general started to receive mainstream attention during the 80s, but he has since been trying to keep himself in the thick of things and done some really stupid stuff to keep himself relevant.
Whether it was taking over TNA and having his own daughter get a pass to the company to spark a romantic angle or being part of various advertisements and films, Hulk and his family have done a lot of things to keep their celebrity status intact over the years. While there are some things which they'll be proud of, there are a lot of things they wouldn't want the general audience to get their eyes on as it could hamper their reputation as a respected, celebrity family and take away all their credibility.
Whether it be his daughter Brooke (with whom Hulk has a bizarre, intimate relationship), his ex-wife Linda, his son Nick or the great Hulk himself, here are 15 pictures of the Hogan family they don't want you to see.
15 Brooke Leaving Little To Our Imagination
Brooke Hogan is the much cherished daughter of Hulk Hogan, and neither she nor her daddy let anyone forget that as they have been promoting their family name for years now as Brooke looks to become a successful model. While Brooke has been part of some sizzling photo shoots, this picture of her lying on the beach in a red bikini is a bit too revealing for Hulk's comfort, as she's not leaving much to the imagination of the audience with this stunning outfit. Hulk has been pretty protective of his daughter for sometime now, as he'd definitely not want the fans to see his precious jewel in this form, as it could make for some mixed remarks about the family and taint their reputation.
14 Hulk Hogan's Parody Of Wrecking Ball
Hulk Hogan has been a great entertainer for the past few decades, as he's not only been an inspirational face but also an amazing heel during his nWo days and has made fun of a lot of people in his wrestling days. But while that can be dismissed as baseless banter, a video of Hulk Hogan parodying Miley Cyrus's "Wrecking Ball" stunned many as it was released to promote his web hosting service, Hostmania. Hogan can be seem on top of a boulder wearing a black thong, a yellow t-shirt and his iconic hair-cap and sliding around in the boulder as a poor, hilarious attempt at parodying it. This image of Hogan sliding on top of the boulder is something the Hogans wouldn't want the fans to see, as it absolutely destroys his reputation even more and his image as a legend is reduced to nothing because of this ridiculous picture.
13 Linda Hogan's Mug Shot
The Hogan family memes have kept their celebrity status over the years, but can never keep themselves outside controversy and even before Hulk's array of controversies came cto light, the Hogan family had found themselves in bad situations in the past. Even Linda Hogan, who was a supportive wife when Hulk was flying high, got arrested in 2012 for drinking under the influence and this mugshot of her looking absolutely horrible is something which the Hogan family definitely wouldn't want the fans to look at. Even though Linda has been divorced from Hulk for almost a decade now, something as controversial as an arrest can hamper the reputation of the Hogan family as well, as this ugly mug shot of the ex-wife of Hulk is something he'd want to keep hidden from the fans.
12 Hulk Wearing A Ridiculous Helmet
Hulk Hogan's wrestling persona is right up there with the best of them, as his ability to get the crowd pumped up helped to get WWE mainstream success in the 90s, as his iconic flexing and tearing up of his t-shirt made him into the icon he is. What many might not remember about The Hulkster is that he actually wore head gear at some point, as shown in this picture of him wearing a helmet for protection (?!) back in his WWE days in the 80s. The helmet with the word "Hulkster" written on it makes him look like an absolute fool, as it's difficult to decipher why he would actually wear a helmet to a wrestling ring, making him look a geek and not the legend he is known as. He'd definitely not want the fans to see or remember this (not that many do) as it was a really stupid move and could make him look like a joke - more so than he does now.
While Hulk Hogan and his daughter Brooke have received the attention of the wrestling fans, not many actually know about Hogan's son Nick, who isn't much of a wrestling fan and has some other interests. Those hobbies included drift car racing, as he was involved in a terrible accident in 2007 when he was trying to show off with his dad's Toyota Supra. Nick, who was already caught with four speeding tickets, was driving the car as he and his friends were going to a steakhouse when his excessive speeding went out of control and the car furiously crashed into a tree, destroying it completely. Nick and his friend John Graziano were taken to the hospital where Nick was quickly released, but his friend (a US Marine) wasn't wearing a seat belt and is expected to be in a bed for the rest of his life. Nick was facing criminal charges because this but somehow was saved, as this picture of the horrendous incident is something the Hogan Family wouldn't want the fans to see as this image of the spoilt brat of Hulk goes onto reveal the darker side of the family, something they'd not want the fans to know about.
11 Brooke Getting Down And Dirty
While Hulk Hogan has been pretty protective his family's image and his precious daughter Brooke, the daughter of Hulk herself seems to be a pretty free-flowing woman who has been in several relationships over the past few years and isn't afraid of showing off with her man when a camera is around. This picture of Brooke in a rather compromising position with her ex-boyfriend, as she's too close for comfort with him at the time and is giving off the wrong vibes in this picture. The Hogans would definitely not want their daughter to be seen in this sort of position, as it could make for the wrong opinion from the fans and taint their reputation as a much celebrated wrestling family as his daughter is definitely making a wrong sort of impression in this provocative picture.
10 Hogan Knows Best
When Hulk Hogan's in-ring career was closing in towards its end, he decided to keep his career going as a mainstream superstar and in order to make sure the audience remembered him, the Hogan family got their own reality TV show in 2005 called Hogan Knows Best. This focused on the life of the family in Hulk, his wife Linda and his children in Brooke and Nick as it centered around their day-to-day problems and life as a family. But what they didn't know is that barely anyone gave a damn about their personal life, as it went onto be a massive failure and was shelved soon after. This poster of the show can only remind the audience of that disaster, as the Hogan family wouldn't want the fans to remember it and would want it to remain as a forgotten afterthought in their lives.
9 Hulk Hogan During The Gawker Trial
The Hogan Family was hit with an array of controversies recently when Hulk Hogan's sex tape was released by Gawker Media and mixed with Hogan's rancid racist comments also being leaked, it threatened to completely destroy the reputation of the Hulkster. But Hogan fought back and sued Gawker Media for leaking the sex tape which he had no idea was being filmed, as the whole Hogan vs Gawker trial got much media attention. Hogan seemed like a broken man during the trial, as this picture of him during the trial goes onto show how down he was at the time as he looks very weak and worn out, as he would not want the fans to see him in this shape because of how strong and positive he has shown himself in the wrestling industry and this only shows the old, sad man in him which he doesn't want himself to be perceived as by the fans.
8 Hulk Showing Off In Something Enzo Amore Would Wear
While Hulk Hogan might have made the colors of yellow and red a sensation during the 80s, his wrestling outfits were always pretty fitting to his character and his stylish mannerism often caught the eye of the fans. He might have pulled off some great costumes during his wrestling days, but this outfit he's wearing in this picture is absolutely shocking as one can't really determine how to judge this costume. He looks absolutely ridiculous while he's barefoot and trying to... cover up his junk, we think? But he actually looks pretty hilarious, which must be pretty embarrassing for him looking back. Hulk wouldn't want fans to see this picture which makes him look absolutely foolish, as Hogan's "style statement" is erased with this horrendous costume.
7 Hulk Hogan's Controversial "Love" Tape
Hulk Hogan was rocked when his sex tape with another woman much younger to him was leaked by Gawker Media, as it shocked many to see Hogan with another woman as pictures of it were also leaked by the Gawker Media group. Hogan would go onto sue them and even win 140 million dollars from it, but the images of him in bed with another woman is enough to scar one for life as this picture of him sitting in the bed getting ready for "the act" is something which Hogan would definitely not want the fans to see nor know about. The sex-tape leaking was something which threatened to destroy all the reputation he built for the past few decades. The Hogans would definitely not want the fans to see this picture of him from the tape as it could even furthermore destroy his reputation as a loyal, "good" character and showcase what he really is in real life.
6 Brooke In TNA
The Hogans tried to promote their daughter Brooke in the wrestling world as well, as Hulk got her into TNA when he was the President of TNA, even though she didn't seem to have a single wrestling bone in her body. She was used as an eye-candy(by Hulk himself!) who had a romantic angle with Bully Ray, as she barely wrestled any matches and didn't provide anything to the product which infuriated fans as to how she even deserved a TNA contract ahead of many other prominent women. She was quickly shelved after the Bully Ray angle ended, as the Hogans would definitely not want the fans to see nor remember Brooke's term in TNA which was absolutely horrible and only ended up ruining Brooke's image as daddy's precious daughter. Her fling with Bully Ray made her character look pretty questionable and the Hogan family would definitely not want the fans to see this side of Brooke.
5 Hulk Getting Trolled On Twitter
Hulk Hogan might be this real macho man (not Randy Savage!) in the wrestling industry because of his physique and charisma, but it's not that difficult to decipher that he isn't the sharpest tool in the shed as he has done some really stupid stuff in his life outside wrestling. Hogan is on social media to interact with his fans, as he has his own twitter account that he manages and when his racist rant exploded in the wrestling world, many fans poured in their support. But what Hulk did not know is that much of the "fans" were actually trolls who used the pictures of other celebrities to go fool Hulk, who took the bait as he retweeted tweets of fake twitter accounts wanting retweets and made an absolute fool of himself. This picture of one such infamous tweet is something the Hogans would definitely not want the fans to see, as it exposes just how much of an idiot Hogan is to fall for these poor trolls.
4 Hulk Hogan In Santa With Muscles
Once Hulk Hogan started to become a nation-wide star in the 80s and the beginning of the 90s, he started to divert to other fields as well, as he tried to get into the movies during the 90s and even starred in his own Christmas movie called Santa With Muscles. The film follows Hogan as a rich man who has amnesia and thinks he's Santa Claus. Going by how ridiculous the story is, it was no surprise that the film flopped massively. Hogan never really got another chance at starring in films, as this disastrous film ruined that path in his career. The Hogans would definitely not want the fans to even know about this train-wreck which almost ruined his image back in the day and could taint his reputation yet again if the fans are to discover this terrible film.
3 Brooke Hogan With Bully Ray
Brooke Hogan was introduced to the world of wrestling by her father, who signed her with TNA and got her in a romantic angle with Bully Ray, as she became Ray's on-screen girlfriend and they often showcased their love on-screen. While Brooke did decently in this romantic angle, it was visible that she couldn't wrestle and was of no use and deservedly got fired after the end of the angle, but she did put in an effort to make the on-screen relationship look as "real" as possible. This off-screen picture of getting very close and intimate with Bully Ray goes onto show how hard they tried to make it seem real, as this picture of Brooke which the Hogan family wouldn't want the fans to see as it makes Brooke look like she really tried to flirt up with Bubba. It makes her real-life character look bad and could hamper the reputation of the whole family as it shows the questionable character of Brooke and how low she was willing to go to make it in the wrestling industry.
2 Hulk Hogan Advertising Pasta?
Hulk Hogan might have attained much of his popularity and celebrity status because of his success in the WWE, but he has also attempted at increasing that by advertizing various products so that his face can feature in the television even more. Hogan has advertized for a lot of stuff, but this picture showing him advertising pasta is just hilarious. When the Hulkster was in WCW, he became the face of "Pastamania" and started to highly advertize the product, even cutting a promo in WCW about the Pasta which has been laughed at by many. This was a disastrous move as it only ended up in him looking foolish, as his family would definitely not want the fans to see him advertizing pasta as it could only add to him looking like a complete fool right now.
1 Hulk Hogan Rubbing His Daughter Brooke
As the Hogan Family has started to gain some mainstream attention in the past few years, one can notice how weirdly intimate Hulk's relationship with his daughter really is, as he has not only help her get up on her feet, but spends a lot of time with her during her private moments. This picture of Hulk rubbing Brooke's leg and upper sides of it only goes onto show how bizarre their relationship really is, as the Hulkster can be seen quite avidly rubbing Brooke who is only wearing some inner-wear. While it's no harm to be intimate with your children, the way Hulk and Brooke interact at times is just downright weird as this picture can definitely give the wrong vibes to the audience and the Hogan family wouldn't want the fans to see this picture as it is just wrong to see how he's caressing his daughter and this picture can make for some really judgemental opinions and hamper the image of the Hogans.
