It is interesting how the wrestling community treats Hulk Hogan. Yeah, there are a lot of Hogan haters in the wrestling community. Why? Many Hogan haters see him as this conceited and arrogant jerk. In other words, many see him as an egomaniac. They also believe he’s a toxic person in the wrestling industry and in real life. Many people believe that Hulk Hogan buried other wrestlers in the industry and destroyed them… that is probably why he has so many other wrestlers that hate Hulk too like Bret Hart, Iron Sheik, Honky Tonk Man and wrestlers such as those. You see, Hogan had haters long before the Gawker controversy started.
There are many other reasons why a lot of people can’t stand Hulk. They can’t stand him as an in-ring performer too. He gets criticized for his wrestling skills and mic work all the time. A lot of people think he knows only a few wrestling moves and many thinks he’s too old to be wrestling. There are too many reasons why a lot of people can’t stand Hulk, I can go on all day about this.
Look, I used to hate Hulk Hogan like everyone else but I don’t anymore. Why? Not only that I think he’s innocent from all this sex tape stuff going on, I’m beginning to realize that Hulk Hogan is not a bad man that the haters are trying to make him out to be. He really is not a bad guy at all. He seems like a nice man from what I’m seeing. Hulk is good with the fans and he’s good with other wrestlers too. Hulk never tried to buy other talent like the haters claimed. He always did his best to help put others over. I mean, if it wasn’t for Hulk Hogan we wouldn’t have gotten all these other iconic wrestlers over the years: The Ultimate Warrior, Rowdy Piper, Andre, Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, The Undertaker, etc. Without Hulk Hogan, we wouldn’t have gotten those guys I listed.
Whether you like him or not, Hulk Hogan is definitely one of the best in the business ’cause he’s the one who put the wrestling business on the map in the first place. He had many classic matches over the years and the haters will never admit that.
Ever since the announcement came out that Hulk was going to be reinstated back in the WWE Hall of Fame after this sex tape stuff, all the haters say the WWE shouldn’t be doing that ’cause there are many who believes that Hulk Hogan is a racist. Well gee… keep in mind that these wrestling fans were the same people who love Chris Benoit. Ya know, the man who murdered his own family and killed himself after, yet a lot of wrestling fans continue to love Benoit. Wrestling fans continued to support a murderer and yet they all continue to treat Hulk Hogan badly.
WWE female wrestlers like Paige got sex videos and nude pics leaked to the internet but she got no negative backlash for that. Instead, people defended her. Those pervy male wrestling fans loved the Paige sex videos and nude pics and they wanted more.
Yet Hulk Hogan is treated badly over a sex tape. Really?
I don’t like the wrestling community at all even if I’m a wrestling nerd ’cause wrestling fans on the internet are nothing but douchebags. That’s why I try to stay away from the wrestling forums online, ya know? The “smart” fans in the wrestling forums are horrible. They’re always opinionated and negative.
Hulk is not a bad man at all and I think this is a guy who deserves more respect knowing what he did to the wrestling industry over the years. It’s sad that the haters can’t admit that. I really do think the haters are so-hell bent on destroying the guy and obsessed with him ’cause they are jealous of his wrestling legacy. Nothing more. Nothing less. They want the life that he has and they know they can’t get it.
Don’t get me wrong, though. What Hulk said on the racist tape was wrong and offensive, no doubt but all of us make mistakes and we all say dumb things. We just got to learn from the mistakes and move on from them. That’s what Hulk is trying to do.
I feel Hogan, though ’cause knowing my own experience, I know what it’s like to go through bad publicity and go through a negative backlash. I’ve been there myself. It’s hard being a public figure, I know it. I guess one of the reasons I’m back to supporting Hogan again is ’cause I feel sorry for the guy, I really do. Hulk changed wrestling for everybody whether he was a good guy wrestler or a bad guy wrestler. He’s one of the best performers of all time. He changed lives for a lot of people out there including mine. I guess you have to watch what you say or do no matter what ’cause the internet is a dangerous place. I’ve been destroyed over stupid shit online myself. I just learned to move on from it and keep moving forward.
Hulk is a good guy. Don’t judge the book by it’s cover. I don’t think he deserves all this hatred at all. Just a bunch of bitter losers jealous of him ’cause he’s a wrestling icon. End of story.
