We're a day late. 60 years old on Sunday. If he's 60 I am getting old too.

I thought he was older actually.  Hogan was only 33 years old at WMIII against Andre.  Body aside, above his shoulders and he could've passed for 45.  He was always old-looking.

1979-80 Hulk Hogan is in my top-10 favorite wrestlers to watch of all-time to this day. Squash matches only, and usually due to the brilliance of Steve King, Angel Marvilla, Frankie Williams, and company.

Happy Birthday to one of the most underrated* wrestlers of all time.

Say what you will, but I've been watching Hulk Hogan Unreleased recently.

The guy was a master at improvising to interact with the crowd and he controlled the fans like few others (Rock and Austin come to mind) have.

You can't ram a guy down people's throats for as long as Hogan was on top, without him having some ability to entertain and draw on his own. Hogan wasn't a flash-on-the-pan, he definitely "had it". Hogan was a wrestling phenomenon. Doesn't mean you have to like him, but was over like few others, and was the flagship of the WWF army that eventually conquered every territory in the country.

Like I said, I think Hogan is really underrated by the IWC.

Basically all of His best work was in Japan. He actually had to do more then 5 moves there.

I sure hope so! Though '87 was nice with all those challengers, and the Race feud.

Happy B-day
