With Hulk Hogan’s WWE deal return rumored to be imminent, the speculation runs rampant as to what his return will entail and how he will make his present felt both in the WWE and possibly at WrestleMania. While he most likely will be a favorite of the fans upon his return, Hulk Hogan’s wrestling history will be constantly discussed, analyzed and remembered. Among this is his time in the nWo, perfectly geared towards many different Mattel WWE action figures. Here are a few of the different looks that would make great Hulk Hogan wrestling action figures:
The nWo Hulk Hogan wrestling figure conversation simply can’t be had without bringing up Hulk Hogan’s original look when forming the nWo. At Bash at the Beach 1996, the WCW was taken by storm and it was the last time for years and years that fans would see the red and yellow version of Hulk Hogan they had grown to love. This may be the only version of the red and yellow that invokes evil feelings for many fans of the Hulkster.
WCW champion and villain too cool for words, Hollywood Hulk Hogan sported the black and white best he could. With the Hollywood bandana, defaced, spraypainted WCW championship and any number of lightning bolted tights, Hulk Hogan’s leadership of the nWo is classic World Championship Wrestling. A version of this Hogan as opposed to a version based on his match with The Rock at WrestleMania 18 would be unique and not something done in a classic style wrestling figure to date.
After the ‘Finger Poke of Doom’ incident and the re-inclusion of Hulk Hogan in the New World Order, Hogan began to sport a look that was a combination of nWo Wolfpac style and nWo Hollywood style. Though short lived, this look is memorable for many fans of Hogan. With WCW heading downhill shortly after, Hulk Hogan’s WCW days may very well have ended in the fans of many with this look.
When facing off with The Rock at WrestleMania 18, Hulk Hogan wore a black and white boa, nWo shirt and detailed ring tights and boots to step in the squared circle. One of his most memorable looks as a member of the nWo didn’t take place in a WCW ring, but when facing off against the Great One. Many fans who missed WCW’s original run only enjoy this version of Hulk Hogan, and thus he must be included on the list.
Hulk Hogan is a wrestling icon, quite possibly the most famous and recognizable wrestler in the world to this very day, and his time in the New World Order from it’s formation to it’s disbandment to it’s reformation in the WWE, he is as representative of the Black and White as one can get.
