A rumour began circulating earlier today claiming that Hulk Hogan had drowned, but whoever originated the rumour seems to have forgotten something that has been rammed down our throats for the past three decades. You can’t kill Hulk Hogan.
To set the record straight, Hulk Hogan is very much alive. Tweets from Dixie Carter indicate that he is still very much with us. I’m not and never have been a Hulkamaniac, but I couldn’t help but be impacted by the false rumour that went viral on the web.
He has, after all, climbed to the highest levels of professional wrestling. He dominated professional wrestling in the 1980s and 1990s, remained a major figure until the early 2000s, and returned nine months ago to spread the Hulkamania virus once more.
Background on Hulk Hogan: His Family and Schooling
Terry Bollea’s parents, Pietro “Peter” Bollea, a construction worker, and Ruth V. Bollea, a housewife and dance teacher, welcomed their first child on August 11, 1953, in Augusta, Georgia, USA. One and a half years later, his family relocated to Tampa, Florida.
When he was little, he was captivated by the sport of baseball. His baseball experience extends all the way back to Little League when he pitched for several seasons. However, despite interest from the New York Yankees and the Cincinnati Reds, his baseball career was cut short by an injury.
At the age of 16, he began following the sport by merely watching the matches on television. As a young wrestler, he was inspired by the career of superstar Billy Graham. Hogan was inspired by his appearance and set out to achieve the same vicious, “inhuman” expression.
Both Hillsborough Community College and the University of South Florida provided Hulk Hogan with an education. When the increasing amount of music engagements he was getting began to interfere with his studies at the University of South Florida, he decided to leave.
At the time, he was also an active musician, which limited the amount of time he could devote to school. Hogan and two other musicians from the area created a band they dubbed Ruckus and featured Hogan on fretless bass. The word about their band quickly spread throughout the Tampa area.
Jack and Gerald Brisco, two brothers who wrestle, saw Hulk at one of their shows. When they saw Hogan, they were blown away by his incredible body.
In order to train Hulk, they enlisted the help of wrestler trainer Hiro Matsuda. In 1976, the two brothers approached Hogan about wrestling, and he agreed.

Terry Gene Bollea, better known by his ring name, Hulk Hogan, is a legendary American professional wrestler. After a year of training with Matsuda, Hogan debuted as a professional wrestler in 1977. On the very first day of training, Matsuda broke Hogan’s leg.
After defeating Bob Roop in 1979, Hogan became the first wrestler to win the NWA Southeastern Heavyweight Championship. In the same year that Vincent McMahon invited Hulk Hogan to join the WWF, Hogan defeated Harry Valdez in his WWF debut.
He competed in the first nine editions of the WWF’s flagship event, WrestleMania. He began calling his fans “Hulkamaniacs” in interviews.
