Hogan defeated NWA Champion Harley Race for the title in July 1979. The announcers even mention it on Southeastern TV the next day. However that next day, the decision was overturned because Hulk had thrown Harley over the top. The standard "False switch" or What would become known as the Dusty finish.

I knew about that but I had never seen a pic of Hogan wearing the belt before.

Not sure the pic is legit... the top of the belt seemed more flat than tapered to contour the main plate as seen here. That is from vague recollection but someone may have better recall or images to verify.

I think it’s legit but if not it’s a really good photoshop - it appears to wrap around HH

The picture is very easy to find without the belt.

Yeah, it's a Photoshop. The belt looks much sharper and more detailed than the rest of the pic.

You old bastards need some new glasses if any of you thought that pic was legit.

Yeah that pic would have been plastered all over the internet forums and WWE produced Hogan DVD collections if it was legit.

I'm surprised though that Hogan hasn't brought up in interviews that he was "NWA World Champion for over 4 years, until I vacated it to go to the bigtime in New York...brother."

When I saw the title of this thread, I was sure we had entered stage one of Billy Corgan's master plan.

Hulk Hogan is no Tim Storm, although he might be younger.
