10 Wrestlers You Woudn't Believe Hulk Hogan Actually Lost To

Hulk Hogan was the biggest name in professional wrestling throughout the '80s and most of the '90s. Being the top babyface and main event draw, it was extremely rare for Hogan to lose a match during his time in both WWE and WCW.

Of course, everybody knows about Hogan refusing to put over certain superstars, such as Bret Hart, Jeff Jarrett, and others. That said, The Hulkster did lose a handful of matches to superstars that weren't supposed to have a chance against him.

10 Diamond Dallas Page

Though Diamond Dallas Page received a nice push as a WCW babyface in the late '90s, nobody could have really expected him to ever defeat The Hulkster. After all, Hogan almost never lost in WCW unless he was going up against Sting.

However, DDP actually picked up a handful of victories against Hogan - though both occasions were via disqualification - on the Oct. 27, 1997, and July 27, 1998 episodes of Nitro. DDP also won a Four Corners World Heavyweight Championship match in Apr. 99 that included Hogan, Sting and Ric Flair.

9 Mike Awesome

After spending several years in ECW's main event scene, Mike Awesome joined WCW in 2000 and began a feud with Hulk Hogan. Though Mike was a well-known and established talent at this time, nobody could have envisioned him taking down The Hulkster, especially considering the latter also had creative control.

On the May 1, 2000 episode of Nitro, Mike Awesome actually defeated Hulk Hogan via pinfall. Unfortunately, Awesome's rivalry with The Hulkster didn't last long, as Hogan left WCW following the Bash at the Beach 2000 incident that involved Vince Russo.

8 Yokozuna

WrestleMania IX was supposed to mark the time where Hulk Hogan would put Bret Hart over. But apparently, The Hulkster was unwilling to do a favor for Hart, so the latter ended up losing his World Heavyweight Championship to Yokozuna that night.

Of course, Hogan came out immediately after and challenged Yokozuna for the title, winning the match via pinfall in just 22 seconds. However, that was not the only chapter of the Hogan-Yokozuna feud.

Yokozuna actually got revenge and defeated Hogan at the 1993 King of the Ring pay-per-view, regaining the World Heavyweight Championship in the process. That would be the final match of their short but sweet history.

7 Don Muraco

Muraco was one of the top WWE superstars during its boom in the early '80s, competing against other wrestling legends like Bob Backlund and Tito Santana. Muraco was a two-time Intercontinental Champion and the 1985 King of the Ring winner.

Folks may not know, however, that Muraco also has a victory on his resume over The Hulkster. The first match between these two took place at a Madison Square Garden show on Apr. 22, 1985. Muraco defeated Hogan - the World Heavyweight Champion - via count-out.

These two would square off three more times over the next 10 months, with Hogan coming out on top each time.

6 Big John Studd

Even though liver cancer and Hodgkin's disease sadly ended Big John Studd's life at the age of 47 in 1995, he left behind quite the legacy as one of the most beloved and entertaining performers in WWE history.

The 2004 WWE Hall of Fame inductee was the 1989 Royal Rumble winner, plus he and The Executioner had one World Tag Team Championship reign together. In the mid-'80s, Studd had a brief feud with The Hulkster, where he challenged for the World Heavyweight Championship.

Studd actually defeated Hogan via count-out at the Sept. 22, 1984 house show at MSG. Of course, the title didn't change hands. Still, a win's a win, right?

5 Lanny Poffo

The younger brother of the legendary 'Macho Man' Randy Savage spent time in both WWE and WCW, but he mostly had success at International Championship Wrestling and NWA Mid-America.

During the late '80s and early '90s, Hogan and Randy had one of the most memorable feuds in WWE history. You may not know that the younger Savage (performing as "The Genius") also picked up a victory over Hogan at Saturday Night's Main Event XXIV on Oct. 31, 1989.

Yes, there is an asterisk beside this. The Genius defeated Hogan in a World Heavyweight Championship match via count-out. Of course, the title didn't change hands, but at least The Genius can forever brag about picking up a victory over the WWE icon.

4 Earthquake

John Tenta performed a handful of cheesy yet hilarious gimmicks during his professional wrestling career. Folks best remember him as "Earthquake" in WWE, and later "The Shark" in WCW.

Earthquake had a short-term feud with Hogan in the early '90s. The Hulkster defeated him via count-out at the 1990 SummerSlam pay-per-view. However, Earthquake returned the favor by conquering Hogan via count-out at a Madison Square Garden show later that year.

The two superstars also squared off numerous times in WCW. This included an instance where Hogan and Savage teamed up against The Shark and The Barbarian on a 1996 episode of Nitro, with the former emerging victorious.

3 Sean O'Haire

The late Sean O'Haire joined WCW near the end of its run in 2000, staying with tag team partner Chuck Palumbo until the company closed its doors in 2001. O'Haire then joined WWE - continuing to work with Palumbo for a brief period - even clashing with The Brothers of Destruction.

After O'Haire and Palumbo split up, the former was repackaged and he began to score some victories against a handful of WWE's top talents. This included a count-out victory over Mr. America (Hogan) on the May 20, 2003 episode of SmackDown. It was the only time the two superstars ever faced off.

2 The Wall

The Wall joined WCW in 1999 and emerged as one of their top mid-card performers. Just a year into his tenure with the company, The Wall received the opportunity of a lifetime when he faced Hogan on the Mar. 27, 2000 episode of Nitro.

Hogan and The Wall pieced together a quality back and forth match. The fight ended when Vampiro interfered and attacked The Wall, resulting in a disqualification victory over Hogan. Vampiro and The Hulkster then teamed up to put The Wall through a table after the match.

1 Vampiro

You can put an asterisk beside this one, but it's still a "W" for Vampiro in the record books.

Vampiro and Hogan clashed on the May 22, 2000 episode of Nitro. The Hulkster had him at his mercy, and all hope appeared to be lost for Vampiro. However, Billy Kidman attacked Hogan with a blowtorch when the referee looked away. Kidman then dragged Vampiro on top of Hogan, helping him score the giant upset victory.

Sting would come to the rescue of his long-time rival, attacking Vampiro and Kidman before they could do any more damage.
