You think you know

Hollywood Hulk Hogan™?

Brother, you don't know squat about me.

Yeah, I'm the towering red-and-yellow warrior who revolutionized the wrestling business, the larger-than-life superhero who transformed an entire country into a horde of Hulkamaniacs™. I'm the guy who spit blood and breathed fire to help create an empire called World Wrestling Entertainment™.

But it wasn't always like that. Once I was a fat kid named Terry Bollea watching legends like Dusty Rhodes and Superstar Billy Graham, never dreaming I'd be a professional wrestler myself one day.

Find out what makes me cry like a baby and what makes my blood boil. Then tell me you know the man called Hollywood Hulk Hogan™.

Join the Babe Ruth of wrestling on a gritty, no-holds-barred odyssey from his start in the barbaric wrestling arenas of the seventies through the humiliation of his involvement in federal steroid-abuse trials to the achievement of his greatest triumph yet.

Along the way, lock up with the likes of Mr. T, Ted Turner, The Rock®...and of course, Vince McMahon™, head of World Wrestling Entertainment™. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “In the rough-and-tumble world of wrestling, superstars come and go, but Hollywood Hulk Hogan has been a fan favorite ever since his 1978 World Wrestling Federation debut. Good guy or villain, the Hulkster has captured the imagination of audiences from Boise to Beirut for more than two decades.”

    BarnesandNoble.com, editorial review

  • “If the career of any single individual could serve as a microcosm of the changes in the ‘sport’ of wrestling over the past forty years…Hogan covers all the key moments in his long career…To their credit, Hogan and co-writer Friedman do provide some glimpses of the often seedy world of ‘professional’ wrestling…An appealing read.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “It’s the plain truth, brother—Hollywood Hulk Hogan went from a fat, wrestling-obsessed schoolboy to a wealthy, wrestling-obsessed grown man. And it’s as plain as back surgery after a body slam that Hulkamania has made its mark on wrestling history. Hulk and his producers seem to have had younger listeners in mind in this breathless telling of Terry Bollea’s life as truly foul language and explicit details of violence are skimmed over. Hogan does cop to the entertainment aspect of the matches, after learning the hard, bone-breaking way of the tough gyms. But brother, if you’ve ever wanted to hear a fun, sanitized view of the wrestling world, give the Hulkster a listen.”

    " You can laugh at this one. It was very disappointing. "

    " As with many things Hogan-related, it's moderately enjoyable, and of questionable reliability. Only recommended for fans of The Hulkster. "
