Independence Day for the 2014 calendar year is now upon us, and for professional wrestling fans across the country, what can make you feel more patriotic than remembering the glory days of the ‘Real American’ himself, Hulk Hogan.
Forgetting the boom period of the nWo in the mid 90s, for the better part of his career, Hogan personified what it was to be an American while being not only one of the biggest stars in WWE, but one of the biggest stars of any genre on the planet.
From the time that he won the title from the Iron Sheik in January of 1984, Hogan not only became the flag bearer for the biggest wrestling company in the world, but he, in a sense, became the flag bearer for the country as he continually battled foreign forces that came to wreak havoc on the country.
Indeed, Hulk Hogan was the Real American that we all inspired to be at some point in our lives, and there was nothing better than watching him express himself with a microphone in hand.
So with that being said, and with the birthday of our independence taking place, let’s have a look back at some of Hogan’s best work through the ages, while he was donning the red and yellow.
