There is expected to be a Hulk Hogan celebration from WWE due to the anniversary of something very significant from his career.
Hulk Hogan has been retired from pro wrestling for many years, which makes a lot of sense considering he is 70 years old. Over the years, The Hulkster has paid the price for it since he has said that he had over 25 surgeries and several of them have been back surgeries.
During his legendary career spent mostly in WWE and WCW, Hulk Hogan won a combined 12 World Heavyweight Titles. In addition to that, Hogan has main evented dozens of major shows and also headlined eight of the first nine WrestleManias.
There have also been many controversies surrounding Hulk Hogan as well, which has led to a lot of fans losing respect for him. Despite all that, he is still one of the most well-known wrestlers of all time.
The rise of Hogan took place in the mid-1980s when Vince McMahon decided to create something that became known as HulkaMania. This month marks the 40th anniversary of the start of HulkaMania. According to WrestleVotes on Twitter/X, WWE plans to celebrate Hogan in January 2024.
“WWE plans to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Hulkamania this month with various new merchandise items & collectibles for Hulk Hogan. I’m told an appearance by Hogan is not out of the question but also not planned as of now. The recognized start of Hulkamania has generally been when he defeated the Iron Sheik for his 1st WWE Championship on 1/23/1984.”
At this point, WWE has yet to advertise Hulk Hogan for any future appearances although they could choose to honor Hulkamania’s 40th Anniversary in other ways.
Hulk Hogan Shares Message On Instagram
It was an eventful 2023 for Hulk Hogan since he got married for the third time and even got baptized as well. However, there was also bad news because his son Nick Hogan was arrested for DUI after partying at Hogan’s restaurants.
On Instagram, Hogan posted one of his tweets with a positive while also sharing a video of himself working out in a gym.
“Setbacks are just setups for comebacks, brother!”
“Get up, dust yourself off, and prepare to rise as a champion!”
A wrestling “comeback” seems unlikely considering his age and injury history, but the phrase “never say never” is also something that is very common in pro wrestling.
